Too mush abuse
    #4719831 - 09/27/05 02:47 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I believe that people are ruining the world of mushrooms by using them just to get high. I mean, yeah, that's great and all, but there's more to mushrooms. We need to respect them a little more. I mean, look at the parrot mushroom? It's sooooo beautiful. But it's not halucenogenic.    :poison: I'm just saying that I think we should enjoy ALL aspects of mushrooms, not just the high...can I get an amen?

Amen to that!

That's part of the reason I had to quit. I couldn't help but use them for recreation and ruined the experiance by doing so...

Judging by the artwork in your sig, I'd guess that the mushrooms did enhance your artistic creativity. Or maybe you were just creative to begin with? Either way, sweet pictures.

But how can you not help but use shrooms for recreation? You consume the mushrooms and trip, take away from the experience whatever you like.

The "world of mushrooms" is in your brain due to the effects the chemicals have on your neurons. This feeling then would be subjective, and just an impression on your brain, not any world or experience universal to all trippers.

Though of course I disagree. I don't see any harm in people doing psychedelics just to get high, if that's what makes them happy. Maybe they'll learn something about themselves in the process.

i think marijuana is the psychedelic that's being abused just to get high. mushrooms are different, once you ingest them you can't ignore the mind expanding effects anywhere near as easily as you can with marijuana. in other words they cant teach you a lesson regardless of why you originally took them.

I think I use them too much sometimes, but as weird as it sounds
I think they keep me from getting so many headaches. At least
for me.

Mushrooms are a HUGE influence to me, but i was pretty creative before, as well...

I didn't say recreational use was wrong, just abuse. Overuse without good intent. Praying is a good thing to people, but praying in order to ask for favors isn't. I just think people need to respect the high a little more.

Actually, I was talking to drOmni, but if you have any artwork of your own you should post it up dude.

oh, I drew like that WAY before I ever tripped. The second one was actually drawn only 9 days before my first trip. I've always been a creative little fucker. Infact whenever I tried drawing while tripping it always came out shitty. Sometimes cool, but not as cool as when I would draw sober.

When I say I couldn't help using them for recreation, I don't mean that there is anything wrong with having fun with shrooms, I just mean that I used them for recreation WAY more than such a powerful tool should be.

In my opinion of recreation:

OK: Some friends decide to trip for a day at the beach with some music. No meditating, no searching for deeper answers, etc. Just enjoying nature and bright colors and being with people.

NOT OK: My friend deciding on a whim to take shrooms one morning with some guys, then driving downtown on the freeway while coming up, and then getting lost.

Yes, mushroom magic is represented in every mushroom body. Even in alternate dimensions.

Terrance McKenna believed that the high was the mushroom's way of exploiting humanity...
