What to tell yourself if going into bad trip?
    #868316 - 09/07/02 07:20 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

If your tripping and then you feel as though things rnt going as youd like them, and things are a bit intence, what do you tell yourself?

I read somones story about them tripping in their bed and saying to themselves "its just the drug fucking with my head".
well I said that to myself on LSD too.

I also try and thing about how good ive felt on pills and other drugs before, and how that is the way to feel.

I usually start with "Oh shit! Dear God please get me out of this, I promise never to do another drug so long as I live."

Then I follow with puppy whimpering as I beg," Make it stop! Please make it stop. Christ what have I done? I am so totally fucked!"

Something like that.

The proof is in the pudding.

If you feel things are getting out of control, pause and focus on your breathing, lie down and do this. It might be a bit harder to do in the midst of a trip from Hell, but if it's only the early stages of a freak out, I think it could help. I've managed to avoid what could have been a messy end to my trip by remembering to breathe, and I lay down and focused on it completly. Sure enough the bad times passed.

Your not supposed to think about having a bad trip.
If your trying to talk yourself out of a bad trip, then your thinking about it right?
It's kind of a catch-22.

I always think about what Jim Morrison said in the movie...
something about kissing the serpent...
if it senses fear, it devours you...
ya gotta ride it out... 

Just open your eyes real wide, take a couple deep breaths and go crazy in a green day sort of way  :laugh:

Ask yourself what your afraid of?  :confused:
Is it a thought? If so, how feasible is that thought?  :shocked:
What's in your environment that brought that thought on? 
If it's real bad, you'll end up clinging to something that is an anchor to you until the trip is over...not good...      If your freakin out real bad then you probably shouldn't be experimenting...

I think it's good to tell yourself the thruth, something like:
Holy shit what the hell is happening, I'm probably picking up bad vibes and start to feel bad for some reason ...
there's nothing really i can do than let it happen and ride it out ... TRY to accept it try to think of something completely different change the stuff you're doing, get someone to talk to or go away from the place you're in ...
Put on some music and don't do anything at all (try not to think about things...)
Saying stuff to yourself like "it'll be over in a couple of hours" i think will be pretty meaningless because when you're gonna have a bad trip those couple of hours don't really mean anything anymore... it's best to just keep relax and change the stuff around you... something like turning of the tv can already be a change! Try to do something else whatever it is and don't try to care too much ....

It all seems very easy but when beginning to have a bad trip I think there isn't VERY much you can do other than to ride it out ... but changing stuff around you can certainly be a good thing to do!

Also in a couple of hours it WILL be over no matter in what strange miserable hell you'll have been during the trip and when the trip ends it'll be an amazing relief ... and you probably won't want to trade the experience for a good one it's something very very personnal a trip and for sure a bad one ... those well... powerful isn't the word ... it's well you may find out one day...
Remember that lot's of people have had bad experiences while tripping and it's perfectly normal that one day you'll experience a bad trip but afterwards it isn't as bad at all :smile: it'll be a GODDAMN AMAZING experience ... HELL yeah
Don't care so much about it cause you'll be worrying for nothing what happens happens and you'll make it through the trip good or bad after a couple of hours it'll all be over...

cya :smile:

Don't tell yourself anything. Don't fight it, just accept everything as it is, and let go of your attatchments and desires.

People who have bad trips are the same people who take it WAY too seriously. That is not to say that shrooms should be taken lightly, but the actual trip, and what happens during the trip should.

For instance, if you're having a bad trip and you think you see spiders (just using for an example) instead of freaking out and saying to yourself "holy crap there's spiders everywhere oh my god!" rather you calm your mind, and take a zen-like approach: "oh, so now I'm visualizing spiders, I wonder why that is. What could this mean?"

Once you learn how to think like that you can control your bad trips very easily. It's kind of fun to slip from good to bad trip over and over again..

..just be prepared and it can be a blast! Gee, that sounds familiar :P

Just go someplace else. The vibes from certian places can give you a bad trip. Just dont go outside, that's where the deamons are. Or you can invite them inside and play poker or something. :grin:

At first it almost pisses me off that I'm about to have a bummer, at least for awhile.

Otherwise, I tell myself, 'Sit back, relax, and tough it through.'

I don't have any more insanity trips. I had one when I first got started with psychedelics, since then I have never had a fear of reality loss and nearly all my trips now are perfect. The odd bad one I used to have was a set/setting thing.

if i start to wig too hard i tell myself, "ok mitchy boy, run!"
and i run and run and run, THAT way i have a good chance of staying out of trouble thees no crime against running,
about the only thing that scares me while tripping is getting caught.
i would mind getting stuck, its not scary, its dealing with loss thats scary, and what have we really got to lose? :smile:

People have bad trips for different reasons... but most of the time its because your in the wrong atmosphere or wrong state of mind. Somtimes the best way to get out of a bad trip is to change the mood or atmosphere. Here are some things that i do when i feel a bad trip coming on. So far ever since i have taken these initiatives i have been able to completley turn my trip around to a good experiance.

1. Change the music
2. Change the lighting
3. Take a piss
4. Say "Im only feeling this way because im tripping"
5. Talk to my friend (normally i will start a random conversation, this seems to work best)
6. Blow my nose
7. smoke a cigerette (somtimes this can make it worst though be careful if it bothers u put it out)
8. Take a few deep breathes and try to relax yourself...most of all try to think of somthing other than what you are currently thinking about

Taking a piss is EASILY the best way of calming yourself down. I don't know what it is but I do that when I'm anxious and it sorts me out.

The only real bad trip you can have is when you start freaking out about the effects (increased persperation) although with me, THC is harder on my body than shrooms

For me in the past, when shrooms or lsd were very hard to come by, if I started going down the wrong path so to speak, I would try to practice many of the things posted by your friends here in this thread. I would also remind myself that I don't get this chance very often, better make the most of it. Then find my most favorite tunes (Tangerine Dream) at a moderate to low level and breathe. Things pass, and I could carry on. That which does not kill me only makes me stronger.

peace :cool:


Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes
a butterfly. I was conscious only of following my fancies as a butterfly, and was unconscious of my
individuality as a man. Suddenly I awoke, and there I lay, myself again.. Now I do not know whether
I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming that I am a man.
--Chuang-Tzu, 3rd century BC

Sometimes like when I've  ingested 11 grams of eq's :cool: and I'm sitting in the movie theatre and the movie "reign of fire" is starting and I look to my left and I see an elephant with an umbrella :shocked: and I think to myself "what do elepants have to do with fucking dragons" :confused:, I tell myself " take the xanax you have in your back pocket" :grin:  :wink:

I personally have never had a bad trip. Environment is everything, prepare before you trip. And here is something to repeat to yourself if you start to feel overwhelmed, a quote by the great Hunter Thompson, "Buy the ticket, take the ride"
