What do you do when you need to chill out?
    #585475 - 03/21/02 04:21 PM (22 years, 27 days ago)

You know when you're tripping and things just start to get, for lack of a better phrase, "too much." Visuals, body sensations, and your train of thought all just go crazy and you don't feel like you can ground yourself. Personal interactions get too much for you to handle, and you just want to be able to see things normal again for a minute to assure you that everything is ok. What do you do? In the past I've left the room/place I was tripping for a different, quieter setting. Maybe smoke a cigarette to ground you do something physical (even though I don't smoke), take some deep breaths, attempt to meditate/focus your mind, change up the music, etc. Does anybody have any other way of dealing with this situation? This was how my last trip started to go bad and I want to make sure something like that doesn't happen again and not let my mind run away from me. Thanks.

Well first I stop taking whatever other drugs I might be doing (weed, for example). Then I find someone to talk to in a hurry. Preferably someone who is, if not sober, not too high on anything. Someone who isn't going to look at me like I'm dying, or ask me how I'm doing every few minutes. Someone who is happy to just have a conversation about shit.

Even better is to find the person(s) that I took the shrooms (or whatever) with, and talk to them. I always feel "safe" around my fellow trippers.

i usualy Smoke a ciggy, drink somthing Very cold, take off my shoes if i'm wearing them (they actully suggest you do this if you start to bad trip, it seems to ground you) change rooms to some place quieter, turn off the lights, turn on the lights, turn on the tv, turn off the tv, it realy just depends on what is bothering me at the time. some times taking a shower rids my little tripping mind of everything that is wrong.

I hear valium can be helpful.
It's supposed to take the edge off a bad trip. It might because it is an anti anxiety drug. I of coarse wouldn't recommend you take this or any other kinda drugs.
Who knows it could make eveything worse.
If i start getting to high I try to walk it off. Get up and start moving. if I'm at home I just lay on the bed and hang on.
I've gotten so high before I forgot I even ate any cubie's
couldn't really move either. And my friends were tripping and kept asking if I was ok. It wasn't helping I really couldn't even reply. So my best piece of advice for you is take a low dose of 2 grams or so that way it's not to overwhelming.

I heard alcohol can do this too. If you get a little drunk while you're tripping it dulls some of the mental effects. Never tried it though so I don't know if it works. I can picture it just making me really nauseous though.

You would not believe how handy a cap of GHB comes in right then!
Kicks in faster than any benzo I've ever tried as well.
I've heard some people talk about things like bad trip killers....placebos entirely.....
Before the trip they keep telling themselves if they take it (flintstone vitamin,whatever)the bad trip will stop....
sure enough..since the bad trip and placebo effect of the whatever are all in thier heads it chills them right out.
I'll stick to "G" though!

when I need to chill, I have a hard time doing it. often times the only thing that works is if I have something important I need to do (such as talking to my mom or somebody who can't know I'm on anything) -- it somehow destroys the bad trip, and works every time.

pretty much anything to take my mind off what's happening, but it's hard to find something that works

For immediate grounding, full body immersion in water works for me.

To come down as quickly as possible, vigorous exercise can help. It is grounding and it speeds up your metabolism, thus reducing trip time. Yoga and stretching are also excellent.

But what works best of all for me is playing my keyboards. I focus on going deep into the music instead of how tweeked I am feeling. Later this year I am going to record some free-form improvisational CDs played while tripping. Some of the sonic explorations are pretty far out, but a good amount remains entertaining even while straight.

In short, any non-passive (no TV!) activity that shifts your mental focus.

There is no such thing as too much...
If you can honestly make that statement, then you have never been there. There is indeed a place called "too much" and being there is one of the most horrid feelings imaginable. I am sure that I will get agreement from others who have visited that hell.

Nothing I've tried has worked for me.....once I "get in" there is no "getting out"..... I did the stuff you talked about and even tried taking a cold shower to hopefully "snap" out of it but nothing worked. I end up shivering in a fetal position and feel like I'm on a wild carnival ride that just won't stop. It is so bad most times that I can't stand and everything swirls and morphs. Once I woke up naked in bed covered with scratches that looked like I had fallen or something and I have no memory of what happened.

some of my favorite things to do are:
go outside and sit on the porch, smoke a cigarrette- this can be extremely relaxing- something about being outside calms me down, and the cigarette just adds to the relaxing

listening to favorite music can be good or bad- if you're already having a bad experience it can make you see your favorite song in a new way, which can end up in it not being a favorite song anymore.

go for a drive! if you're tripping too hard, don't drive yourself of course, find a friend to take you. turn on a feelgood cd, and just enjoy the ride. roll the window down, lean your head out the window. drives are great for chilling out.

if you have a pet, find him/her and hang out with em. pets have a good way of making you feel alright.

hope some of these help..

You know what I do?

I just take a step back and say "whoa, things are getting to be 'too much'", and then I laugh at that. I think that emotions come in "waves", and when things are getting to be too much, it's because you're letting some wave take you away, and out of your place of comfort. Just let that strong wave hit you. Obsorb it, and laugh at how strong it was, and that you got over it. Once it's gone you'll be happy. :smile:

I usually trip alone though, and it's harder when other people are in the room.

Those are a lot of good suggestions, thanks guys.

I like that attitude Learyfan, its definitely what you should aim to do. But sometimes the wave is so high that it lifts you up off your feet and drops you down somewhere else. Its hard to control sometimes.

When the trip gets to be too intense, I crawl into my bed. I try to tell myself that I have taken a drug and that's why I am feeling to way I feel. My mind gets confused whether it actually is a drug experience, or if it is reality, but just clinging to the possibility that my former existence is real, keeps me alright. Also, being wrapped up in my bed gives me a very safe feeling

3.5-4.4....but I am one of those people who reacts really adversely to any drug......and yet at a different time I get no results at all.....
Take alcohol.....sometimes I am buzzed and even drunk from one or two......at other times no effect.....I once drank 15 beers drove 45 miles and got stopped for speeding. The cop wrote me a speeding ticket and didn't know I had been drinking. I continued to drive another 80some miles with no problems....but I felt buzzed, that's all.....

Sometimes if things are too much I change the lighting and/or the music because that is a quick way to make it feel like everything is different. Usually, making the light darker is better for me, and not listening to music which is intentionally psychedelic (like pink Floyd or Gong) because they are trying to make you crazy.

I would not suggest smoking weed if your starting to get freaked out. In many cases smoking weed can cause this. Also clouds thoughts and such. But if your fryin hard enough it is not going to matter. Being creative such as drawing and making music is definatly a good way to calm yourself down. Also try playing with some toys or interesting objects. Or try telling stories to a friend. Me and my friend start making up funny stories and tell them to each other.

Xanax, Lorazepam, anything in this family of drugs (benzodiazapines ?) Placebo affects always hit me very soon after ingestion. If your realy fucked though you might do something dumb like eat the whole bottle. You should measure out a good dose before you eat the shrooms so that there is no chance of overdose or anxiety from a suspected overdose. Just having them there ready for you if it goes bad is very calming.
