How did you all start?
    #636536 - 05/19/02 03:13 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

This may have been asked before, but what got you curious to try shrooms/acid? For me, it was the movie Flirting With Disaster (with Ben Stiller) who hunts down his real parents who happen to be hippies who have their own LSD lab. After that, I found www.erowid.org and read some actual facts on acid (not the bullshit propaganda that made me want to stay away from it...jumping out of windows, going insane, etc).

I always wanted to try shrooms since I saw some guys at a party on them.... they were laughing and having a good old time..... before this I always though those kinda drugs were scary and dangerous. I'm pretty sure the first website I visited was the shroomery... years ago....

hm, first time I was introduced to shrooms was with a good friend that wanted to try them that summer. I was curious about hallucinating and thought it would be fun to try as well, but back then I thought you'd hallucinate from mild poisoning so I thought it was a bit too risky for me. LSD on the other hand seemed like the perfect drug to me: fast, clean, no weird fungi. But I was way too young to get that.

So I kinda forgot about it. But when I got bored from weed after a while, I remembered about the shrooms. I was especially interested in auditory hallucinations, visuals would be nice as well but the main reason for me to try them was to improve listening to music since that means so much to me. After reading a bit on erowid I found out that they really aren't as harmfull as I thought them to be, so soon after that I tried them. Too bad music doesn't improve that much on shrooms, but I found so many other interesting things when shrooming so that isn't as important to me anymore.

Acid first: Brother got some for free from a dealer he knew and got me to try it while I was Practically passed out drunk(not for long though).

Shrooms: Best friends older brother was buying them off of this guy at reck beach(vancouverites know this beach,its a nudy beach) So we asked if he could get us some.

SLC Punk, where devon sawa's character runs through the sprinklers with the tabs in his pocket and gets about 20 hits of acid through his leg. that inspired me

sir tripsalot

I was driving past that beach the other day and you know how its all borded off and shit well some guy was walking down the street naked. He probably got in trouble from the cops or just decided to go back in...whatever...

Shrooms: I was at a friends and we were trying to get some weed but couldn't find any. The guy had some shrooms and I got a gram. Well, I split this with three people, not knowing anything at that time and didn't trip at all. The first time that I acutally tripped was pretty fun...I had recently teached my buddie how to grow them because I couldnt do it at home and we sampled the first batch. Very mellow buzz but good none the less. Now i've been using them a little more regularly (but still only like 1x ever 2 months or so).

Acid: Never...but i'm hoping too when I am older!

sounds strange i guess, but i wanted to do psychedelics for almost as long as i can remember (i remember thinking "bullshit" in dare class in 4th grade)
probably because i've listened to jambands and been around old hippies (family) my entire life

I used to go drinking down my local park around the age of 14 (wow thats ages ago) it was an age were we felt too old to play soldiers in the woods, but were too young to go drinking in a pub, so the park it had to be.
Actually it was a great place to meet people (read girls) and have fun. I met these older guys from my school one night and they were drinking AND smoking this stuff they called "Red", it was actually red seal hash, you know the really pliable soft stuff. When they found out I'd never smoked before they became eager to get me stoned.
A few tokes/ blowbacks later (blowback= joint is put into someones mouth backwards with the roach end facing the receipient who cups his hands over the end and inhales a lungful) I when home completley strung out and spent the rest of the evening spread out iin a star shape on the floor with a massive grin on my face.

I was first introduced to Hoffmans love child around the same year. I used to go to a youth club in my area and all the kids up till the age of 19 were allowed in, so the older kids who were there kinda got me into it (among other things, E's, speed etc).
I heard about magic mushrooms when I was about 16.
A few of us decided that we would go out to find some as we had been told it was the right season. We got a book out from the library (no internet then i'm afraid. Actually there was but not for everyday people).
We went to various spots looking for the legendary Liberty cap and found something very close to the dodgy drawings that were in the book.
They turned out not to be psychoactive, I think they were haymakers I think.

My real introduction to shrooms was when I first discoverd the shroomery (see registration date), grew some with some success (that was my first trip in about four years), then a mighty hunting success (liberty caps, psilocybe cyanescens!)

sir tripsalot:
heh yeah i live in vancouver too. the first time i did shrooms, i got em from a guy at wreck beach as well.

i don't really know why i suddenly decided to do shrooms, but i'm glad i did. before, i was pretty sure i would never touch the stuff (but then that's also what i thought of weed before). i mean, a bunch of my friends had done it, but at that time i thought of shrooms as a "hard" drug. but then one day, i was job-hunting with a buddy and he told me that they were planning to shroom that night. i guess i was curious...i dunno, really. so i said yes when he asked if i wanted to come, and i started reading up on shrooms at erowid when i went home, finding out what to expect and such. and finding out that it's really not as bad as i thought it was. that put my mind at ease, and i had a really good time that night.

hey sir tripsalot, have u met someone named hawk, down at wreck?

I've never been to wreck beach. My friends older brother was one who went there at the time(he was 25 we were 15). Heheh 15 is not an age that you go to the beach naked

I had only drank and smoked pot for a few months, and my friend started telling me about acid, and I got really into what it was and finally did it one day with him at my ranch, 2 hits of PEZ each ... and that changed everything for me, literally, my life radically changed in every aspect.

With shrooms, I just bought a 1/4 off a friend and ate an eighth with the friend who introduced me to acid...just can't get enough of trips

i always had a fascination with drugs since i was a kid ( never did any until last year) shrooms and acid were just appealing to me for a long time.

I remember learning about all the drugs in grade 4 where the cop comes in and teaches you and crap. I would always be like.. angel dust and weed are so cool.. i didnt know anything.. then around grade 9 i was introduced to the rave scene with all the cool drugs there.. E, meth, G etc. but i never did them. Then in grade 11 the mudvayne CD came out... for those of you who know Mudvayne the intro song on their CD has an interview with Terence McKenna.. so he was talking about Mushrooms helping in our evolution and that they can help in our future evolution..i found this so interesting, so i found Lycaeum and Erowid and Shroomery.. and here I am today

My mom has always smoked weed, but it never clicked in my head till the DARE program after I read littlebit of the book i was like "hey, Thats what their doing" "I wonder what thats like" I had gotton drunk before 6th grade and sneaked cig's but never tried pot, So i just had to sneak some when I got home. snuck some only got slightly high(did not know what I was doing and very scared my I would get caught taking their drugs, also did not know about joints running)I never took anymore after that just kinda forgot about drugs got into freestyle bikes and skateboards then in 9th grade my older cousin got me baked before thanksgiving dinner and then came and staye dover at my house for a few days andbrought a fat sack with him and that was the beginning of my pot habit, I had also seen LSD in the dare book and thought it would be cool to see and hear thing that were not their I could not get my hands on any in 9th grade so I just read everything I could about the drug,every encyclopedia or phamphlet I could get, but when I got into highschool The first few weeks I found a LSD connection and started tripping,Took it by myself the first time and found it to be really cool and I've been trying to turn people on ever since!

I think the first time I thought about using drugs in the hallucinogenic category was way back in ninth grade. Good ol' health class taught you about drugs. LSD is what stood out from every other. I believe the description went something like this:

Billy one day decided to take LSD. He dreamt he was in a beautiful field with butterflies and he frolicked around. The next time he took LSD, he saw a lake, with trees and fish and a rainbow overhead. Billy one final time took LSD and had a "'bad trip'", He was scared, he believed demons were chasing him and when they caught him, they shredded him and his pathetic soul to shreds. Afterwards, Billy swore he would never again touch LSD. A week later, he had an episode where
he was being chased by demons again. Billy now suffers from '"flashbacks'".

Anyhow, I thought the hallucinations were cool, and was curious about it. I didnt decided I actually wanted to do them until my senior year. I read up on erowid and lyceum about LSD and mushrooms. I read how bad trips are a minimal risk when you are careful. I decided to give it a go. LSD was the first thing available in my area, so that is what I did.

I first tried shrooms for my 17th birthday. A friend of mine showed up with a quarter and gave them to me as a birthday present. Five of us split them up and ate them all, though none of us had done anything other than pot before. We all had a blast, and those four guys have turned into my best tripping buddies.

I was in boot camp at age 17, and I wrote my older brother and asked him to send me a hit of acid. The only drugs I'd ever tried were alcohol and weed, and there I was, in Army boot camp, telling my brother it'd be cool, I'd go on sick call and enjoy it in the clinic!

Lucky for me he didn't send any.

back in high school in the late 60s, i had read the "look" and "life" magazine articles on psychedelics, and was sorta into the rock n roll consumer scene (dug the byrds & the airplane & the stones & the beatles & hendrix &&&) ... knew a couple kids who were "using" (afaik, pot & coke...) ...but i didn't toke up until 2nd semester frshman year at college (& i turned down an offer of a group excursion to downtown cleveland to see the dead in 1970... oh well... saw 'em the next time they hit town & was seriously blown away ...) & in summer of '71 did a morning glory extraction... & then in fall of '71 one of my college chums got some acid on blotter... had a few random trips, some good & some not so good... then in '72 moved to an apartment near coventry village (one of the cleveland hippie enclaves) & got into it for the next few years, i suppose... again, sometimes good and sometimes bad... there were a few "older heads" who occasionally had some excellent advice... connections abounded for acid, weed, hash, oil, and the odd score of aMT, peyote buttons, yage herb, shrooms, 5meo-dmt, yohimbe bark, woodrose seeds, uppers, downers, powders, poisons... ah well, live and learn... (of course, not everyone managed those two tasks ...) (but most who did live managed to learn... something...)

My friends used to eat mushrooms all the time, but I didn't even start drinking til I was past 19. When I was twenty I started smoking weed, and did so for a year or two until I decided that I wanted to try something that would produce vivid visual hallucinations. I did not want to try LSD, and the dried up shrooms that the dealers sell looked and smelled like garbage.

A friend of mine tried growing back in grade 10, but failed miserably. I thought I might as well give it a shot and ordered some spores. After folowing the PF Tek, then breaking up the cakes and mixing them with dirt and newspaper in large styrofoam coolers with clear lids, I had an anormous crop of Puerto Ricans. 43 grams.

My best friend and I had decided that we wanted a true "Inca" trip so we promptly picked the PRs (they hadn't even matured yet and we thought they were SUPPOSED to have big bulbous heads) and ate 14 grams each. They were fresh, clean, and had a wonderful taste. To this day I refuse to eat dried shrooms.

The next 5 hours were some of the most incredible of my life. It was an E like high surrounded by amazing visuals. I live in a loft with a 14 foot ceiling and having the spaciousness was wonderful. At times it looked like the ceiling as 100 feet away, the counters melted, my carpet became and ocean, and the white plastic walls of my shower had faces pushing out from behind. Out my windows was a different spectacle altogether. Bright lights, fuzzy buildings, and all kinds of intricate imaginary metalwork abounded.

To this day I haven't had a better time.
