Havent posted on here in a long time but i figured sharing a magic mushroom trip might be fun.
For my first time i took 2.5g and made sure to chew alot before swallowing (this made them set in very quick)
I made the mistake of doing it with somone who i am not very connected to and we are on very different levels of thinking.
Within 10 minutes shit got funny and everything was brighter ( we were getting pretty into the music we had playing)
20 minutes and i Was cross legged meditating on the floor, when i closed my eyes it was like someone was shining a light in my face. This was the beginning of visuals (eg; his carpet was moving and breathing with me)
30 minutes and we had both hit a point of real tripping, i was outside in his backyard sitting on a lawn hair just taking in all the crazy visuals and trying to get a handle on just how far this was gonna go. ( also noticed signs of bloatedness and nausea which ended up messing with the trip. Burping up foam and whatnot... held down vomit though)
After an hour I hit the best part in my trip, very happy and really experiencing bliss with everything going on around me (a lot of this is hard to put into words, mushrooms are unique to any other drug i've tried) The grass was an ocean and i was laying in the middle really feeling it. At this point my friend had been laughing for at least 20 minutes straight and it really brought my trip down. I felt very in control and like i could do anything where he was so taken by the trip it made it impossible for me to progress.
After two hours we peaked, at this point his neighbours were outside cutting the lawn and we were so gone that it made for a bad time. At first the lawn mower was soothing and we could still say and do most of the weird stuff we were doing while his neighbour was outside... As soon as it shut off things went downhill. My friend insisted we stay inside the house because his neighbour will know for sure (she still most definitely knew something was up). In this time i tried so hard to get him to go outside on the bikes to get away from this enclosed space. We eventually tried but only made it down the block before deciding to go sit in his basement and get music going.
3 hours in: He wasn't on his wifi and neither was I. Neither one of us had appropriate music to be tripping to and we knew youtube was the answer. Everything seemed so complex we spent an hour trying to get on his wifi, navigate youtube and put on a good song. We gave up after marvelling at the complexity of youtube for a while. This is where i would mark a noticeable comedown, we were still tripping hard but conversation was easier and emotions felt less spiked.(through the entire time we each were having short waves of sickness where we would just lay down and die for a couple minutes)
3-4 hours was when we felt much better, lots of anxiety lifted and a more positive vibe came back... the feeling of returning was odd, i think the half way points were just as trippy as you begin to question whether you're back to normal or if the trip is still effecting you. we spent this time discussing the trip and how we felt, as i said before he was not the type of person to do this with as he didnt hold much respect for the mushroom and took it only as a way to have a cool little trip... Mushrooms are not like getting high, it can be something you wish you weren't in and no matter what you're still gonna be tripping.
After four hours of tripping we were officially "okay", still with small visuals and a decreased speaking ability. I ended up driving home and he biked to his other house. The rest of the day was pretty positive and i felt much more thankful for my parents and friends... I feel positively changed even though i would consider the trip to be a negative one. My advice for anyone considering shrooms is to listen to your gut when you consider who you're going to do them with. Plan ahead as having ambient music would have helped regulate the trip significantly and once you're in its not very easy to execute things like that. Choose your location wisely, you need to make sure everyone involved with the trip has the least amount of "boundries" as possible eg: we did them in my friends house in a neighbourhood he knows, this means he was constantly worries about neighbours or people he knew outside.this held the trip back for me and turned it to a negative vibe. My suggestion would be a cottage or a place where each person can choose their environment for tripping.
I would love to hear other stories or spiritual advice around mushrooms... I plan to take them again this summer but to drastically change the environment in which i do them.
TLDR; Tripped shrooms, cool visuals, bad environment, bad trip partner, no guidance, ill prepared, don't just do shrooms for the hell of it.
Excuse any grammatical errors, kinda just rushed through this one.
