Thinking about tripping but don't have any freinds
    #4584712 - 08/26/05 06:54 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

This is post that would have gone to Trip Tips, so if the mods think it is inappropriate or risky feel free to remove it.

Anyway, I've got the itch and a few free days this weekend and I'm wondering what to do. I have access to some pscilocybe cyanesyans (strength being unpredictable, but probobly on the lower end), peruvian torch and mdma/mda. The problem is I don't really have many freinds around. I'm thinking if a solo trip/roll, or with somebody I don't know too well would be a wise idea.

I haven't tripped/rolled for 6 months and really only tripped 2 times before that, so I am RELATIVELY of low experience. I live in the woods so I don't have to worry much about to much stimuli, but I'm if wondering if taking any of these substances while alone (which I have never done before)would be either psychologically risky or a waste. Should I keep waiting?

I know one other stoner guy from my work who has shroomed a couple of times, but he doesn't seem to intelligent and I don't entirely feel comfortable with him, but am not uncomfortable either.

Nobody can make the decision for me, but I would appreciate some input from more expereinced trippers. I know any speculation would have to be based on my own self-knowledge and personality, but some 'general' advice would be very useful. Thanks.

Where do you live i'll come with you !  :smirk:

I need some shroom buddies (anyone?)

If you dont feel entirely comfortable around the guy from your work then i'd avoid dosing with him. Yet is seems a shame to not share the experience with another. On the other hand when your on a solo trip you can direct it any which way you desire... and you can even do it naked  :wink: lol

The best solo tripping drug would be DXM (robitussin) a 2nd plateu dose should ensure some weekend fun, but don;t expect to move too much.

do a solo, just make sure and get anything you might want, before you start, like beer, food, herb, etc, so you dont think about driving, then put on some floyd, or whatever you dig, and trip your ass off :thumbup: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

DXM is just a shitty drug in general.

Well thats an opinion, I find it a very enlightening drug and is very useful for self thought (your concious is free from your body).

Yeah, so did I, and then I realized what scatman said, and stopped doing it.

on topic, I think it's probably better to trip on your lonesome than with someone that you don't really know. I won't trip with anyone that I don't trust with my life.

Tripping alone can be a really great experience. Often times when tripping with another person our moods and ideas of what to do at the time were totally different, and it kinda ruins things. Alone you can do what you want. However, you may wanna take a dose on the smaller side, especially if you aren't really experienced. Alot of the accidents and horror stories you hear with halucinagens are inexperienced people doing it alone with a dose much higher than they can handle.

I would never trip with anyone who wasn't one of my very best friends. If you don't have someone like that, then I would say go solo, definately not with the guy from work. I would try to do it on a bright, sunny day, and just hang out in the woods. I have never taken E, so I can't give you advice on that. If it were me, I would just trip and smoke... but it's really up to you. You know yourself a lot better than I know you! My favorite place to trip is in the woods, during the day of course.. night would be pretty creepy! The one time I have taken cyanescens was with a bunch of friends and I don't remember any paranoia whatsoever. Go solo and expand your mind! Have fun and enjoy the experience.

Go for the solo!!! Done it Many times. No problem... Get to know ur innerself. And besides, there is no one there that keeps talking when you want to "ponder" your thoughts!!!

And like said above, plan ahead, get everything you need first. Kick back, relax, and bake my brother!!!

The most memorable thoughts can occur during said above :smile:

My first trip was a solo trip, and 90% of my trips have been solo trips. I like them more than with people, and I only trip with my best friends. Be careful on what you can handle. You know your limits. Dont breach them.

Methinks maybe I will wait till I have a little more experience under my belt. Most of my psychedelc encounters have been with mescaline, MDA and pot. I've never tripped hard on mushrooms, and I think these have the potential to be intense.

My freind picked them nearby his house a year ago and put them into gellcaps. When he first tried them last year on one capsule he said he saw the floor move about 100 feet away from him and that they were extremely visual. However, his recent capsules have been what he described as feeling really high with lots of closed-eye, but not open eye visuals. He thought now 1 pill might not be enough. My freind attributes this to a possible breakdown of psilocybin into psilocin in the last year.

Today is a beautiful day out and a good opporunity, but I'm thinking my inexperience with the mushroom itself and a somewhat unknown intensity might be too much. Perhaps I will wait till after my freind from Calif. viisits and we do some more Peruvian Torch, to get more comfortable with tripping.

Am I being a pussy, or am I not being stupid?

Well, about a year ago I got REALLY, REALLY stoned by myself in my parents basement and when I came back I felt nothing was real and I was totally alone in the universe. It had me in pretty bad shape for a few months.

I've since come to terms with that experience, and having integrated it doubt that it would happen again, but I know what can happen.

While I think solo trips can be very insightful, I think you're at a greater risk of depersonalization and post-trip depression or anxiety when you trip alone, and there's no one else around to help resocialize you.

I think it comes down to how comfortable you are being alone.

If you're the type of person who can spend a day with your self and have a good time, then I think solo tripping is advisable. If you're the type of person who would look at a day by yourself as punishment, then I would advise against solo tripping.

I'd have to agree. Don't trip with someone you don't know just to have someone to trip with. In my experience that really brings down the experience. If you feel up to it, solo trips can be very rewarding, especially with mushrooms.

I personally would rather have people around when I do MDMA, so I think you should wait for that. Take whatever dose of mushrooms you're comfortable with, and go explore the woods alone. You're lucky to have a forest nearby! One can really learn a lot from the trees.

Excellent advice! I second this opinion on the matter :thumbup:

Remember that mindset and physical setting are two of the most important factors in having a smooth psychedelic experience.  If you are worried about tripping by yourself, then perhaps you should wait until you are not. :sun:
