How many people have stopped drinking alcohol in favor of mushrooms?
    #4571225 - 08/23/05 04:39 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I never drank at all in high school, and I only drank alcohol on maybe 10 occasions while in my first year of college (I'm 18 now and about to start my 2nd year). Back in July, a friend of mine turned me onto psychedelic mushrooms and I found the hunting/growing process to be pretty interesting. After I tried them, I realized that I found alcohol to be pretty unappealing compared to the gifts of the mushroom. I'm just curious whether anyone else here has completely stopping using alcohol in favor of a good mushroom trip.
I also realize that mushrooms aren't always good to use while in a large social setting, and small amounts of alcohol can be beneficial, so this is more of a theoretical question.

I traded in booze for weed, mushrooms are just icing on the cake. :smile:

Weed, and Psychadelics > Alcohol

They are better in both effect, and health.

Yeah but drinking is in a class all by itself. If someone has a drinking problem, then it would be a good idea to substitute something for sure.

my phase of using alcohol to get fucked lasted about 6 months when i was like 17, and then i realised it was retarded and stopped drinking heavily. however, i still like a beer or two when i'm hanging out with people, especially if i don't know them that well. i started using psychedelics when i was 17, but that's just coincidence. even without the acid i would have stopped drinking heavily.

to be honest, its my use of other drugs that has decreased since i properly got into psychedelics. my cannabis, amphetamines, and ecstacy use has all come pretty much to a stop over the last few years; i see no point in it anymore.

How many people have stopped watching TV in favor of reading books?

Both are used to entertain or convey information, but they're used in different ways. You can gain a lot more from a good book than from most of the stuff on TV these days. Reading a book forces your imagination to run free and create its own world; watching TV is easy and good for just vegging out and relaxing after a hard day's work.

Most people these days don't read much - the masses are totally satisfied by whatever's on the tube. Conversely, there are those that spend all of their time reading and think that TV is a stupid box that has no benefits. Then there are a lot of people that use each for their own specific purposes; TV as an easy way to chill out and have fun, and books when they're feeling more thoughtful and don't mind working at it a bit for a more enveloping experience.

Extended metaphors are fun!  :cool:

I haven't stopped drinking entirely, but I do drink much less since I started using mushrooms.  I still do like to go to the pub with friends, family, etc. and I will still drink there.

I never watched TV in the first place.  I've never owned a TV, and I don't think I ever will.  I do download movies and some TV series (Futurama, Simpsons, etc.) to watch on my computer occasionally though. :smile:
