need advice on trip-sitting
    #506018 - 12/31/01 06:00 PM (16 years, 7 months ago)

A few friends of mine have decided on doing acid and are stuck on the idea, though all they have done is pot and I don't know how mentally strong they are. Drawing from personal experience I also did acid right after having smoked pot a few months, and I had a great trip. However, I know how scary a bad trip is and how hard it is to overcome it, so I would not want them doing it without anybody experienced there.

I told them that I will let them trip at my ranch, the safest place, 20 acres of freedom and no authority etc. to ensure that they are in a good mindset, and I will sit them and make sure they have a ton of fun and that nothing bad happens. However I need some advice on trip sitting ... what should I do exactly? How much should I talk/suggest/change the music/etc.? I read through the Trip FAQ many times but I need to hear some tips from people who are truly good at being trip sitters. When a person starts to bad trip, sometimes music/tv/change of place will help but not always as sometimes it can truly fuck with you (I've learned this too many times) ... what do I do if the person just LOSES it (like what happened to a friend of mine recently) and there might be a possibility of them hurting themselves/others? If it gets TOO bad and nothing works at all I would consider paramedics but I think that would be a truly bad idea.

Would having a healthy dose of niacinamide on hand be a good idea? I think it's a much better choice than the Thorazine the hospital will give ...

Anyway, thoughts? I plan on taking half the dose they are doing just so I know I am in control but not bored out of my mind.

I am not really WORRIED, per se, but I am nervous because I know how scary a bad trip can be...

any help is appreciated.

make them donate some pot to your fund and stay outta the way. if they look like everythings fine, dont change a thing. music might be a bad idea.

Have a can of mace with you incase they conspire to kill you and have you for breakfast. If your worried about them wigging out.

Total abstinence is so excellent a thing that it cannot be carried to too great an extent. In my passion for it I even carry it so far as to totally abstain from total abstinence itself.
  -Mark Twain

"The time has come the walrus said, little oysters  hide their heads, my Twain of thought is loosely bound I guess its time to Mark this down, Be good and you will be lonesome
Be lonesome and you will be free
Live a lie and you will live to regret it
That's what livin' is to me
That's what livin' is to me"
Jimmy Buffett
