Trippin by yourself...
    #565317 - 02/28/02 01:12 AM (15 years, 2 days ago)

I know a lot of people say that on your first trip that you should be with friends and/or someone experienced. But if i dont have anyone to do it with, is it still generally pretty cool to take not a whole lot and be by yourself?

the first time i ate shrooms was with "friends" and i had a horrible time, i have never shroomed with any other person since then and all my trips have been amazing, beautiful experiences
only my opinion, some people only shroom with others.

I took my first trip ever(on mushrooms) by myself in my house with no one home and no one expected for the next 3 days. My friends came over later but i was alone for a good part of it. It was one of the best trips of my life, one of the few times i have eaten mushrooms i grew myself. It was awesome, its pretty much up to you and how you feel about tripping alone and if you think you can handle yourself.

Remember, its only a drug. :wink:

I also always trip alone. In fact I have never tripped with anyone. I have been around people while I was tripping but that is about it. So basically, I don't think it's really neccesary to have someone with you. Good luck and have fun.  :wink:

one time, i was trippin alone and i was really tired. i could have sworn the whole 'life flashing before my eyes' thing was going on and it felt like i couldn't breathe too well. seemed normal, i wasn't worried, except for the breathing thing....

it turns out that while i was listening to my headphones, i went into one of those trance like states and i was laying down. my headphones came off and were around my neck and the big earpieces were jammed into my throat and cutting off my air and what-not. somehow i 'woke' up and quickly grabbed the headphones away from my neck.....i thought i died. i was laying there motionless, staring at the wall, gasping for air like once every ten minutes thinking about my whole life.

just make sure you don't eat too much your first time...other than that, its really not as bad as some say it is. you'll find ways to entertain yourself....

There is no problem taking a whole lot by yourself, IF YOU KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. I would not recommend a first time tripper going for a massive dose their first time out by themselves. When the world flips upside down and your mind isn't working quite right and you have no idea what is going on and the trip starts going sour it is easy to convince yourself that you are on a deathbed and need help and end up in the ER getting a stomache pump. If you are tripping for the first time by yourself, start out with a low dose.

I like being with friends a lot more than being on my own for mushrooms, but then, that's just the way I'm wired. Your milage may vary.

Note that being with the 'wrong' people will be way worse than being alone though.

Tripping by yourself can be more introspective, you are almost forced to look into your own soul. But being with real friends, on the contrary, can really give you some good vibes and a sense of energy floatin' through you. The best trip I ever had was with 2 good friends; that's like heaven man.

Most of the time I engage in herbal refreshments, I am alone.
I only had one friend I was able to trip with. We became like 2 sides of the same coin, and the trip was pure magic. Every other time, it was horrid.
Most of the time I trip alone. As ong as you are in a good mood, have a safe clean environmen and are able to handle yourself, tripping alone is great. For me that is.

Although I do like to 'experience'with a good friend, but alas they are far and few between.

My friends and I always trip together. It's almost as if we've created our own aussie mushroom cult. With close friends around I can say that I have never had a more bonding experience. The closeness that we have developed since is awesome. We have also all tripped alone and none of us have had any bad experiences.

I fully agree with cynicalmagician however, being with people you don't want to be with is FAR worse than being alone. I always find it difficult to be around people who aren't trippin.

Somehow I hate tripping with sober ppl around.
Makes me feel I gotta act normal, so I can't focus on the trip but instead I focus on behaving normal and not saying weird things. Also I can't do things I'd like to do like sit in a corner and watch my room from a whole other perspective.

Tripping with other ppl you know is much better, you both loose that attitude of normal live and you're comfortable with each other. However, it sucks when one of you is having a bad trip. That really influences the other persons trip as well. And I hate it when someone is having a bad trip because he didn't prepare for it and ruins your trip with it. On the other hand you can help someone who's having a bad trip.

All in all, I rather trip alone.

I dont recommend tripping by yourself..

It really depends on yourself, and you really wont be able to tell if you can handle tripping alone until you are actually tripping alone.

I have tried it and not liked it, try getting some experience over shrooms first and once you have an understanding of how the drug works than give it a go.

Even when u think you know shrooms, you may not..a couple months ago I got 5grams of shrooms which were highly potent (I did not know at the time) and I gave 1g to my friend and i ate the other 4..anyways to make a long story short I had a very bad trip and this goes to show that even when you think you are on top of things you never know until u actually are.

Anyways, do what you feel best about, but I recommend not to do it, peace..
