Shrooms to get passed trauma

Hello /psy/ I come to with a bit of a different request.

A bit of back story; my partner, I'm going to say maybe 5-6 years ago was home alone, smoking a lot of pot, and doing whippits. Not really sure how the fuck it happened, but he started to see fractals and honest to God thought he saw what death was like (basically nothing and fractals). Ever since this he has had a slew of issues, panic attacks, anxiety, PTSD (not diagnosed but we are both fairly certain he has some of it, or something close to it), very severe depression, etc.
His younger brother killed himself two years ago, which was also a large blow to his (my partner's) psyche.
He has been in and out of therapy, having decent results that turn into shitty results because either his therapists tend to focus on work being the issue, even though he insisted he has never felt anxiety or panic from working, or suddenly started recommending hypno-therapy and some other stuff that my partner hasn't really been interested in trying (sorry I'm kind of paraphrasing here, but definitely both therapists have backed him into some of their mumbo jumbo).

My partner and I have done some drugs together, we have done molly & he's done coke with his friends, he's mostly completely fine on molly and we enjoy it together.
We did do shrooms once together, he took 3/4 of a gram and I took about 3 grams. I fucked up, I will not lie, we had been drinking, I had only ever done shrooms about twice before and it wasn't the same strain, etc. Unfortunately he ended up panicking very badly after about 5 minutes, and continued to be panicked for about an hour. It took me a while to calm him down, but after a while he actually was completely fine and was very relaxed. Of course the whole experience did not go as planned, like I said I was a bad sitter and did not do things correctly.

OK, so here is my theory, but I need opinions from strangers.

  1. I really think with a small about, about 1 gram (literally one shroom) I think he can start to work through the drug trauma, seeing that it isn't real. Sometimes going through really bad drug trips you have to go through it again to understand it and get better (I sure have with Acid).
  2. We WERE able to get to a good place, but it took a while, because a lot of psychedelic is going in with a clear mind, and unfortunately he could not
  3. I'd be there with him and be able to make it a lot safer
  4. He has some incredible self loathing tendencies, he cannot honestly say he loves himself, he barely can say he's proud of anything he's done, so I have strong hope with guidance that shrooms could really help him get somewhere and LEARN something about himself, he can really struggle with this (we're taking a year to work on ourselves separately before we get back together, so I do think he will come out of it feeling a lot better about himself which is a step)

So TL;DR what I'm trying to ask is, is this something just plain stupid on my part? To try and work through the trauma with shrooms? Learning to love himself with a bit of help from mother nature?
If I'm honest I never felt true love for myself before I took acid for the first time, and I truly believe it could be a very important step -- but obviously I can only account for my experiences/friends experiences.
Please give me some advice on this if you can /psy/... Also I apologize for kind of ranting, it's hard to condense life stories.

mdmas empathogenic effects make it really good for nonjudegmental self reflection, and therefore when used in the right setting can be pretty therapeutic. i recently did it with a girl and it was basically a therapy session where we both talked about a whole lot of stuff that we'd been bottling.
its worth considering that while drugs like lsd and mdma have been showen to work excellently for /some/ people they arent the magic fix.
maybe look into microdosing

How the fuck do people get a hold of psychedelics? Or even just cannabis (where it's not legal)?

You hear about people taking acid and smoking weed casually, but for me I can't even imagine the process of buying it. Who to talk to? I don't have many friends and I just moved to a new town. Any advice?

Grow mushrooms. Then you don't have to deal with shady people nor worry about getting ripped off, mimics (NBOMe etc.), or unknown dosages (to some extent). If it's just for yourself it's not difficult to grow so much you don't know what to do with them. It's not like growing pot, it's super easy. The only difficult bit is that you have to learn to do sterile work to keep contaminants (mainly molds and bacteria) out of your grows.

Google the Shroomery if you want to learn more.

The oldschool way is mostly just meeting somebody who smokes up at a party, and asking them if they could hook you up with a connect. Chances are there's at least somebody who'll be a stoner at each party. And it's pretty common for stoners to like to tap into the psy every now and then.
Drugs frow freely on the river of booze.

Is there a drug similar to LSD that i won't build a tolerance to?
I like how clear everything is when i'm on it, it feels like this is what normal people have it all the time, it basically kills my enthusiasm, so i'm looking to be on it, 24/7. but after one day you build a tolerance to it like nobodies business. Any help?

I kind of know what you mean. I feel "numbed" or anesthetized all the time, both emotionally and physically, and LSD makes everything feel more intense.

But no. The cause of the tolerance is your own nervous system, not the drug itself. In simple terms, your receptors get tired of being bombarded by serotonin and stop responding as strongly to the neurotransmitter. Since all classical psychedelics cause their primary effects through serotonin agonism, they all have cross-tolerance.

You could try microdosing. Take a sub-threshold dose (10-25 ug in the case of LSD) every day. They say it's supposed to cause a slight change in mood and/or creativity, without the disabling effects of normal doses. While I think I'd love to be on a permanent acid trip, I don't think I'd be able to function as a normal human being.

Meditate.

That clarity is what it feels like to be fully aware, mindful, in the present moment, to cultivate sati, w/e you want to call it. Meditation is just brain training to cultivate that state of clarity (which often brings with it peace, joy and compassion all on it's own) so that it becomes more readily accessible to you and slowly permeates more and more of your life. The first few months (maybe even year+ if you're not diligent in your practice) you won't even be sure it,s actually accomplishing anything. But after a year or so, little subtle changes in you begin to manifest. They might be pointed out by people around you before you yourself notice these changes. Eventually you start keying into these moments of pure awareness. not ioften, just a few times a day, maybe a few moments. but then it'll be several times, and dozens of times a day. They'll last longer. Then one day you'll notice that there's been a shift in your day to day experience. it might be after one sudden event, it might be more subtle and gradual, but you'll notice that your everyday experience is vastly different than when you first embarked on this journey. there's now a deep sense of peace, tranquility in the ''background'' of your conscious experience, always there. At times you become distracted, scatter brained and forget it briefly. but it's always there, just waiting fot you to tap into it, just waiting for you to remember. To remember the present moment, to remember to rest in awareness. At which point, congratulations, you've had some level of awakening. But there is no Enlightenment (yet?), awakening is a process.
Keep on practicing, and you'll find even deeper, clearer awareness. Or so I've been told, havent gone further than that yer. Only been at this for 4 years though, and surprised at my progress. i always thought meditation was bogus, but that even if it was legit any breakthrough would be a pipe dream or at the very least decades down the line. But awakening is a real thing, it's in the realm of human experience, and something any one can achieve if they so wished

For anyone who cares here's a link to a Buddhist Geeks podcast where they talk about research being done at John Hopkins with long time meditators doing /psy/'s for the first time. https://podtail.com/en/podcast/buddhist-geeks/trippin-at-johns-hopkins/

micro dose on a day on 2 days off basis, about 10ug. this worked for me in terms of clarity, for the first couple weeks i was absolute ecstatic with a feeling like "wow this is what normal people feel like". although like the anon just before said, meditation will do it too, and it'll be safer. micro dosing has almost the same effects as meditation

Hey Ya'll. I want to brainstorm with everyone here as many creative ways to keep your stash safe from discovery as we can muster.

Nothing obvious either - many security safes can be opened with a simple and generic key: lockboxes can be taken and opened at a different location.

I took to putting my powdered psychedelics into small baggies and securing them with tape within small openings and spaces found in the woodwork and cluttered environments of basement spaces.
Just reach up and around the corner into that tiny, black opening you'd never notice and BAM! There it is: safe and sound.

Let's brainstorm!

Went on my first hiking trip after taking two tabs. I feel like this trail was made for tripping, and someone else must have thought so too since I ran into a little gnome hut. Just gonna picture dump. It was magical and beautiful, not much else to say.

My feet are fucking RAW tho I hiked for 7 hours.

wish I lived where you do, OP. South central texas can be really beautiful but it's so rocky, dry and full of cedar. There's no meadows or lakes to explore, let alone a little gnome house. The last time I hiked on acid was the first time I'd ever tripped outside, even though it was only half a tab, temperatures got up to about 105 and my gf and I nearly got heat stroke. Seriously, and I was in goddamn flip flops, shorts and a t shirt worn over my head keep my head from cooking, I felt like Moses crossing the desert. Where is this anyway? Seems idyllic imo

I did not. I ended up doubling my hike. 8 miles (original planned trail) turned in to 18 miles.I heavily researched the trail, and I had this app called "all trails" which really helped (you can also start recording your trail, which will show you where you are, where you've been, etc). I did have someone with me who only took a micro dose which was good. I highly recommend having someone slightly sober with you, otherwise, I may have been out there forever. I took 3 liters of liquid and drank every fucking drop, finishing it right as we got back to the car, so that's another thing. I made sure to overly prepare.

Use all trails for shit in your area, find one that is reasonable distance, and low elevation if possible. You don't want to do any actual climbing. It will show the ups and downs of the trail, it's fairly amazing.

>2 liters of water in one of those camelbacks but I took out the bag and put it in a bigger bag, and 1 liter of gatoraid
>brought 3 layers of clothes in case it rained, it did not, so I did the trip with 2 layers and halfway through shed the top layer
>very nice hiking boots, but if your trail is easy, I rec running shoes with a little oomf to them for more comfort
>music on a playlist you don't need to touch, wireless headset, water resistant preferred because sweat
>SUNGLASSES (REQUIRED)
>small snacks.
I took a few energy gel packets (little tubes of electrolytes, carbs, and caffeine). Your body may or may not know when you need one. I used 2, and I also ate 2 protein/energy bars. There were times my body just stopped and was like, aight, take one now, you need one now. Then I'd be on my way.
>folding stool
HIGHLY REC this. I had 0 (zero) places to sit. There were very little rocks or even stumps near the trail. I sat down twice my entire 18 mile hike.
If you do not have a sitter or someone who will microdose with you, I don't think I can safely recommend going on a trip hike. I took 1.75 tabs (175mcg) and cut off just 25mcg for him. At one point I realized I would have been out there for 12 hours and may not have been able to walk to my car.



>>901664
Cool, California. It's funny that the entire trail felt like it was constructed specifically for my trip. Like an on-the-rails rollercoaster. I would never fucking trip when it's summer outside, sounds miserable. It was a nice 62 degrees and I still sweat like a pig and ended up shedding layers.

Yo, so I'm new to 420chan. I don't know anything about this place but I was wondering if anyone can help me out. I'm really wanting to try shrooms. I've never done a psychedelic before but I think shrooms sound most like what I'm looking for. The problem is I don't know where to get them. Another issue is that I'm on Zoloft (150mg). I know there's already a thread up about a similar issue with another dude but he's wanting to do LSD and is on a different dosage also the replies in that thread didn't seem very helpful. What are my options here?

You got all the info you needed from the LSD and zoloft thread, it just wasn't what you wanted to hear. SSRI's work on serotonin receptors and psychedelics and certain other drugs are seritonergic so there's competition at the binding site and sometimes downregulation of receptor activity, the competitive binding is bad enough honestly. Anyways, if it's sometimes that binds at that site then chances are it basically short circuits the process or greatly weakens it. If it's something that raises serotonin levels then it could put them at dangerous levels causing serotonin syndrome(toxicity) and probably not kill you but maybe make you wish you were dead, barring underlying conditions that is. Now you know and you also know you'll need to go through full detox(potential reemergence of whatever illness+brain zaps) for two or three weeks for those drugs to work or be safe.

So I'm gonna do my first trip on acid with a friend, but have recently suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage but have made a decent recovery in spite of it. Am also a recovering opiate addict, using kratom currently.

Would this be a good idea or no? I want to come to terms with the trauma as well as hopefully get the neurogenesis psys are known for

I suggest a little more recovery time. Only due to the recent hemorrhage. I was dosing Kratom for the same reason and did three tabs the day after. Great trip. But let's face it, I think you've already made your mind up. Regardless, good luck to you my man

i'm done with psys. or drugs overall. exercise and social drinking is all i need for now.

i dont want to feel this way, but i think if i took anything stronger than whiskey it would break my current flow. im on the path as to speak. i have reached the level of consciousness i need.

i bet theres other people with this same "problem" and this kind of thread pops up now and then.

my question is: what to do? will i ever want to take mind expanding substances again? i want to, but... i dont need to. there must be a point, when im out of clues and need something to direct me back to the path, right?

maybe i just take break for a year, two or twenty. fuck. i feel so good and yet so... bummed. what is wrong with me?

I mean, when psys leave you they leave until it's time again. No reason to force it. Though, I will say, I don't think there i anything wrong with simply enjoying the sensations and visuals of psys without some sort of intention or goal for the trip. You've done the work, paddling up, or down, the river, now you seem to be at a calm, it's ok to take in the scenery. With drugs or without. Px brotha, hope you have a good life.

It'll fuck things up on some level in some way. It could potentially make the trip weak to nonexistent or it could interact in some unpleasant way otherwise. Ssri's like that take two full weeks to kick in and two weeks to fully wear off. Stopping for a day or two could help, but the reality is if you're on those kinds of meds then maybe tripping is the right move for you? In the end it's all up to you but you could simply be wasting your money and putting a speed bump in your treatment.

SSRIs bind to and block the sites that LSD and other psychedelics (and MDMA) bind to, so nothing happens unless you take a lot, stopping for a few days isn't enough, because they also down-regulate the receptors, meaning there are less of them for LSD to bind to even without the presence of an actual drug

Any length of time long enough to make acid worth it and you'll be into withdrawal territory and you might as well just stop at that point, there are lots of other drugs you can do on SSRIs though

You don't control any of the thoughts that come into your head

Have you ever thought about this? Thoughts just *arise*. We operate with an illusion of self control, which is probably pretty beneficial, but we don't actually control our thoughts. You may feel like you're guiding your thoughts but its just an illusion.

I think about control all the time. The key here is the definition of “control.”
We cannot control the wind, but we can adjust our sails. As in, we do not have absolute god control but we can use our sail to maneuver our boat according the the laws of the waves, gravity and physics.

Consciousness doesn't exist either. We are just a series of thoughts, really. We've got bodies and brains and the illusion of free will, consciousness and self.

I've thought about this plenty and believe it to be the truth of reality, but for practicality reasons I act as though it weren't the case. There's not really too much to actually think about when it comes to this idea. The central nervous system is just a system within a system of systems within systems, etc. Thoughts arise just as bubbles, flowers, or any other of the results of the interactions between components of these systems occur, They are just transient states of being, as all things are.
