How to experience a high without drugs?

2 years, 5 months ago

I come looking for answers. I am 22 and have never taken a drug that wasn’t prescribed to me. I drink, yet sparingly and on the special occasion. I have no interest in using drugs either due to a personal reason.
I ask this question after having a discussion with a close friend of mine. He was recalling his trip on pure MDMA or “Molly” as it’s better known. He talked about the sensation of rolling and coming down and all the sensations during and after. What surprised me the most was the statement that’s been bouncing in my head for some time. “You can experience the same high off of life completely sober as you can with most drugs.”
I have many friends who have done a plethora of drugs and I’ve only heard him say that.
Is this statement true? Have you come close to a simular feeling of being on a drug? Is the sober high better? Thoughts? Questions? All are welcome.

i was an alcohol drinker and weed smoker until 2 months ago, since then i have been trying to be mentally high, and the results have been better than expected, now I can be ´´high´´ whenever I want to, I just need good music and laughter, the secret is in being happy with your self and leaving worries behind, even people think that I am on drugs when I am not!…. Now I appreciate much more the small things than makes me happy, its beautiful! you definitely dont need from an external substance

I may be too close minded to contribute to a satisfactory answer, but from personal experience I would have never encountered or felt the things that I have, had I not taken mushrooms. I had tried to open my mind and heart before but I’ve always felt as if there has been a barrier that stands in the way of opening myself to those emotions. Some may and probably will argue that it was my own mind creating those barriers, but I cannot stress the importance of how hard I tried to remove those barriers only to have the end goal slip away into self-indulgent self-loathing because I was unable to do it. Mushrooms changed that, and at the very least extended my emotional horizons to a point that I was unaware even existed — successfully helping me not only vault over those barriers but land in a place so far beyond my original imagination that I could hardly believe or comprehend it. I guess what I’m trying to convey is that the only problem with getting “high” without having taken any drugs is that I don’t know how you could compare it, but if you can do it and somehow simultaneously have the perspective or extreme empathy to know what those other drugs could have done for you, then more power to you.
