To Do or Not To Do LSD

It’s a very interesting experience, but it is to be treated with caution. Someone of psychological problems, panic attacks, or something, shouldn’t do it.
I would suggest, if you want to try, do it in a “safe” environment. Just with a few friends, to test the effect on you.
Done, its good, but I dont think mindchanging drugs gives any answares.. But it can be a trigger for inspiration and thinking.. Thats why i say ” a couple of times “.. to many people, as i see it, are glorifying drugs and forget to master reality (speaking from own experince and what I´ve seen around me for many years).. and fail to see the magic of everyday living.
@mehdi756, A change of perspective is almost a guarantee. :) The true nature of the change is dependent on a number of different factors, like Kazi said, it is important to be consumed under circumstances that are comfortable, in surroundings that are serene and with people whom you trust. And most importantly, the condition of your mind will dictate the tone of the experience. If you are having a troubled few days leading up to the trip, it is very likely that these thoughts and experiences will affect the trip in a way that might not be very pleasant. Conversely, if you are in an open and curious mindset and prepared for whatever comes your way, then it most certainly will be exactly what you are looking for, even greater than you expected.
I cannot predict exactly what perspective change you will have, but from my experience, and from others that I have spoken with, it is a deepening change that can profoundly broaden your horizons and shift your life path, should you allow it to do so.
Go for it man, LSD is awesome. Just remember, it will be intense, and it will end. Everytime ive tripped LSD ive just melted into whatever piece of furniture I can have access to. Have a calm mindset going into it, if you smoke trees, smoke while you are waiting for it to kick in. It will put you in a great state of mind and even enhance your trip. Have fun!
@mehdi756 dude shrooms and lsd dont compare. Shrooms are natural while lsd is chemical. lsd is more *hardcore* as you say. And heroin is completely different. every drug’s trip is different.
Though Amanita muscaria(red mushroom) comes closes to lsd trip but its still different.
My suggestion is try lsd. And don’t worry noone has died from taking lsd till now and you cant OD on it. And remember once you try lsd you will never preach about shrooms.
And you can try heroin also but just don’t get addicted. Its a very addictive drug.
@mehdi756, realeyesing has a really great summation for you right there. You could also check out Jordan’s summation in his post here: “http://www.highexistence.com/mushrooms-lsd-experience-explained-to-non-user”
Either way, there are only positive things to gain from this experience and any preconceived notions will only distract from the greatness that could be. I have taken Lucy several times now and even the more intense, darker experiences are worth one’s time so long as you are prepared.
@mehdi756, There are NO negative physical side effects of mushrooms, and you may have heard of the study which found they actually improve peoples lives afterwords.
I’ve done them about half a dozen times, all picked myself. They’re INCREDIBLE. have had bad trips though, and it was like hell on earth. It will make your ego very tangible, and you” probably rethink the way you live your life afterwards.
There’s really no way I can describe them in words. (oh, and I’ve never done LSD)
@mehdi756, i’m sorry but that was a very ignorant thing your friends claimed. also, heroin is not as bad as society makes it out to be. Though it is bad and of course people who don’t have self control or are predisposed to to being dependent on it can get easily addicted, or the simple fact of having too much access to it can lead to addiction. But you can definitely try it a couple of times and be fine. I’m speaking from experience so you can count on my advice.
Shrooms are at the moment my all time favorite drug. You think you’ve felt the limits of emotion? Not until you’ve dosed on a good amount of psilocybin. It will push the limits of your emotions to the point of incomprehension. This includes fear as well as feelings of pure joy and love, though a couple of bad moments here and there are worth learning from in my opinion. Every morning after i do them i always have a great glowing feeling inside me. It’s beautiful. On acid, things look interesting. On Shrooms the world shows all its hidden beauties.
Here is a video that proves how shrooms can actually help our brains physically.
I am also doing an extensive research paper on the important of psychoactive plants on human development and consciousness throughout history for my humanities class in college. I am excited to post it online for all to read. Many reliable sources and popular figures will be included such as research conducted at John Hopkins, Harvard; figures like the McKennas, Paul Stamets and other professional ethnomycologists.
It’s a wonderful experience, just mentally prepare yourself that your mind isnt going to be processing like normal for a couple hours and always remember that you will come back from the trip. many of my friends who said they disliked lsd is because they had a “bad trip” was because they got afraid that they would never get out of the trip and be sober so they freak themselves out and over think everything and have negative thoughts, but as long as you surround yourself with positive friends with good vibes, listen to great music and most importantly be in a safe comfortable environment, you’ll definitely enjoy everything, just do not drive !!! let it open your eyes and see the true beauty in the world cause honestly my most mind-awakening favorite amazing experiences in my short eighteen years of life was when im on acid, i feel everyone should try atleast once in their life. go take a walk in nature, maybe it’ll change something in you like it did for me. remember stay positive and youll sail right through
Great experience, don’t be afraid. I have done it 3 times, but the first two times the dosage was too low, but the last time I did it, amazing trip. I consider it a bad trip, but even with bad trips you can gain powerful insight and ideas from it!
get all the legit drug 411 on EROWID to help protect yourself, or friends as a spotter…
but a heads up to those thinking about trying…
LSD is NOT your recreational substance despite its popularity… it is Hardcore as mentioned… especially for those who have suppressed, emotional issues buried deep in the subconscious… often times in the negative forms of anxiety & fear, manifested through childhood trauma/abuse…
the trip could turn into a 10-hour nightmare that one could not wake up from… in such cases, the experimenter is forced into a corner with nowhere to escape… nowhere to hide except to confront one’s raw fears, which oozes uncontrollably to the surface… closing your eyes will make sensations even more vivid…
in that sense, it might be an useful conduit for those willing to unlock their private Pandora’s Box, and to “know thyself”… to revisit their painful confidential files, locked away even from sight of the owner possessing these “bad” memories…
after all, LSD was initially used to treat mental patients (many of which escape the painful reality by interacting with a non-threatening world which they’ve mentally conjured)… it was therapeutically implemented as a key to bypass the proverbial cognitive lock… a lock equipped with a security system that triggers a negative-reinforcing response whenever neurons near the vicinity of traumatic memories get reactivated, discouraging attempts of conscious recollection…
i assume such inherent pain-avoidance mechanism served an evolutionary purpose for our early ancestors grinding through their ruthless, savage environments… a mental anesthetic to give survivors just enough strength to fight on or flight on…but like vestigial organs, such defensive mechanism of suppressing traumas might of been beneficial for ancestors in a era where average life-spans top 20-30 years, yet could be the inadvertent cause for long-term depression, psychophrenia, and a slew of socially (un)acceptable personality disorders of people in modern times.
simply put, LSD will kick that darn door open and let loose the monsters in the closet… whether or not this drug will help alleviate complex mental disorders is pending on an individual basis… the least it will do is to peek into our innate, forbidden territories, especially those with complicated pasts… for them, the experience will be painful… but sometimes in life, we must shatter ourselves completely to see the unveiled truth… to fall in order to walk… to fail in order to succeed… as the old saying goes, “no pain, no gain”
