It’s going to be a first, but I wanted wanted a couple thoughts before I use .
@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, 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.
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”
