I've got an unlimited supply of shrooms as they grow all over the place here - I have friends that regularily trip on the local psilocybe cubensis. I'm keen to give it a shot although I'm a bit worried about freaking out etc. and thought it would be wise to get some advice.
I only want a level 1 trip for my first time, but even the thought of that makes me a little bit anxious. It's kind of weird - I really want to do it, I guess I'm just a bit of a pussy cat. I'm pretty happy with my life at the moment, so I can't really think of any bad vibes that would ruin the setting. The thing is that I've had really freaky experiences smoking pot before (I don't do it much) . I smoked alot of really strong shit that scared me. Because I hardly ever smoke it, the weed really hits me in a trippy kind of way. Anyway, It got me thinking that if weed sometimes makes me a little anxious then mushrooms - even level 1 - is liable to freak me out totally.
Mild visual distortions wouldn't worry me much, what makes me anxious is when my body starts acting funny, for example, with pot, I'd get a really fast heartbeat and start freaking about having a heart attack or something. It's my health that worries me for some unknown reason. I've no idea why - I'm fit and strong - I play rugby every weekend and train twice a week so I've got no health problems to worry about. I'm confident that I could handle a little bit of visuals (bright colors etc.), in fact I'd really like to experience it. I really want to feel mellow and euphoric and adventurous and listen to some cool music etc. so I thought a low dose of the old mushrooms would do the trick.
I know all about settings and music, vibes etc. I've been reading all the stuff and trip reports on the shroomery for months. I'm quite sure it wouldn't make me nauseas as I hardly ever get sick, but even if it did I would expect it and it wouldn't worry me. I even like the taste of the little buggers. I ate a dried one once, but it didn't do anything. I basicly want to relax, calm down, listen to music or maybe take in some nature. I thought that mushrooms would be the best thing for it, but maybe not considering I freak pretty easily. Don't want any "mindfucking", thankyou very much.
Everything you said in that post happened to me, and I had the same worries as you did. First time i took shrooms, I tripped a level three and it was amazing. No worries about my body, and no problems. A level one would be perfect for a first time, and I can almost gaurantee you will not be worrying(scared) about your body/mind once you hit the peak. Trust me you will have a good time.
