Too much love for tripping * 1
    #684882 - 06/17/02 08:28 PM (21 years, 8 months ago)

Ever since my first acid trip way back when, I've made a special place in my life for tripping. Shrooms or acid, I don't really mind, but I find it to be the most refreshing thing I can do, like taking a psychedelic shower after a few days of dirty nonsense (aka work and obligations).

However, along with getting mushrooms with great ease these days, I have come to realize that I am on the verge of doing it once weekly, and maybe some weeks twice ...

As a veteran shroomer I know better than to do this because it is not a drug to abuse, though I feel uncomfortable because tripping is so special to me that i just want to immerse myself in it all the time. Before I started tripping, I would just smoke and drink and do whatever I could to get fucked up. After my first trip, I realized how utterly stupid that was and how I just wanted to explore as deep as I could into my mind.

Though it's good I don't do drugs to get fucked up anymore, it almost feels as though shrooming has become an addiction of sorts because I just love it so much.

I don't plan on becoming an "eraserhead" as the FAQ calls people who trip all the time, but I just felt like sharing my experience with psychedelics and my current situation.

Just to clarify, this isn't a "cry for help" or anything of the like, I'm just rambling about what comes to my head ...

LOL, well, if you ever got into dosing a few times a week, it wouldn't be long before you get sick of trips that don't have the same impact.

Spend your money on making your room really trippy instead of on a constant shroom diet.
I feel like I want to trip that often sometimes too, shrooms are sooooooo good. Waiting 2 weeks can be hard sometimes.

2 weeks? That's ALL? I have 25 gr in the freezer and haven't touched 'em since 12/28/01!! And won't 'til the 4th of July! The longer you wait, the better it is!

I trip with 5 - 7 grams on a weekly basis and always enjoy it.

I experimented for a few weeks with twice weekly doses. That was a waste.

No doubt it probably works for you but you might find eventually the trips lose that sparkle, or there's just no meaning to be gleaned from the experience. Plus there's the risk of mental instability (unlikely to be permanent but difficult to get through nonetheless) because the brain doesn't time to recover.

Yea I have the same feeling, I was supposed to have tripped last week but the weather was bad, I only trip 2 or 3 times a year, but when I do is a special occasion for me, I can't see my self doing it every week.
The longer you wait the better it is!
It takes me time to digest a Tripp experience, but I trip level 4 or 5.

wow newt, i would of figured you have dosed more then that.

First time i did shrooms, i thougth they where great... but couldnt really get my hands on them often at all.

Well now i can get psychadelics any time want.... In the begging of i this period i would trip every friday and did for about 5 weeks straight. I started to notice some mental changes in me and i didnt like it. I now only trip few times a year and my brain and sanity thanks me.

Sanity is a good thing and i want to hold on to it. doing shrooms all the time makes me feel like im loosing it. Psychadelics also lose there magic if you do em every weekend for me atleast.

Isn't that a contradiction though? They make you feel like your loosing your sanity if you do them often yet they lose their magic at the same time? How could this be. Isn't it the magic that makes you feel insane? It does for me anyway.

It's when the boundaries of two worlds begin to slur together and an individual finds it hard to differentiate between the two. If you ever find yourself in this situation (I wouldn't wish it on you or any other) tell us how "magic" this feels.

No, it's not a contradicition. They lose their magic because of depleted serotonin and over-stimulated receptor sites. There is some mental instability because of depleted serotonin and over-stimulated receptor sites.

Ive had a few VERY intense trips that made me feel just to wierd. Questioning if whats goin on around me is real. Why are my friends eyes glowing red, he is evil. Cops are comign to my house. I dont like thoughts like that, and its hard to break out of thought loops like that when your dosed up.

After doing em every weekend it just started to feel like a routine or somthing, therfore lost its magic and a lot of the trips came out negative. I dunno im a wierd one.

I think my brain thanks me. Maybe not? Just definatly taken a psychadelic break for a while.

If depleted seratonin is the problem, couldn't you take a seratonin-reuptake depression med (paxil, celexa, etc)? I'm not saying I'm right, but why wouldn't that work?

doesnt that prevent the reuptake of 4-hydroxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine, psilocin? serotonin is a tryptamine, 5htp helps replenish serotonin.

To each their own. But I feel like too much of anything gets boring. Even tripping. I think we all have went down that hole before. Especially when you start growing them lol. But I mean, you'll know if you're getting sick of it.. then all you have to do is stop lol. I was doing it like you until I got blasted with a reality check that made me put those mushrooms down for months.

For me waiting a while usually guaranteed a good trip. Nothing is certain of course but it was rather uncanny- like welcome back we've missed you! Doing them every week however, it was as if after a while the entities started to get bored themselves and start trying to fuck with me!

That probably may well have been a reflection of my own boredom and neurosis (bred by repetitive/addictive behaviour) beginning to creep in, but I think it can actually be risky behaviour if you start using these things too much especially if cannabis is involved.

doing anything too often will affect relationships.

wifey is complaining about my use of cannabis, (but not acid), as it alters my personality.

I am using more during COVID, and I am less interested in going out.

going out is what she wants to do, so "Yeah, I see her point".

one cannot just be a happy blob even if Dr. Anthony Fauci suggests it's best.

I would invest in improving your tripping space
Maybe some LED lights set to a purple color, put plants in there, etc.

Take a long break from psychedelics and they will blow your mind again once you do them again. It's very wonderful and amazing

Someone seems to be confusing mushrooms and LSD with MDA and MDMA.

Psilocybin/Psilocin does not deplete serotonin. The molecule is shaped like serotonin and as a result; it binds to serotonin receptors. If they did cause a serotonin dump you would hear far more stories of chronic depression after taking classic psychedelics, rather than relief from it in the days following the trip. 

LSD does cause you to dump a bit more dopamine though but not in the same fashion as cocaine does. :ohyeah:
