If you actually got enough real LSD to stay lit for four years, I'm jealous and would guess that you went to Brown. That was pretty stupid though. I think very occasional moderate trips on shrooms (like annually) can be productive if your expectations are in the right place. Sorry about your brain.

They helped make me reflective so that I couldn't take my own will to power seriously. Fortunately I still make good money, but I could have been so much more ambitious if I didn't overthink such things.
>>
>>7539081
They haven't because I never developed a stupid fixation on fantasy.

I felt always as though I were hanging over a void; up there everything that had ever happened to me seemed unreal, and worse than unreal - unnecessary. Instead of joining me to life, to men, to the activity of men, the bridge seemed to break all connections. If I walked towards the one shore or the other it made no difference: either way was hell. Somehow I had managed to sever my connection with the world that human hands and human minds were creating. Perhaps my grandfather was right, perhaps I was spoiled in the bud by the books I read. But it is ages since books have claimed me. For a long time now I have practically ceased to read. But the taint is still there. Now people are books to me. I read them from cover to cover and toss them aside. I devour them, one after the other. And the more I read, the more insatiable I become. There is no limit to it. There could be no end, and there was none, until inside me a bridge began to form which united me again with the current of life from which as a child I had been separated.

i agree fully—twice a year at most. people misuse psychedelics so frequently, it makes my dick hurt.
>>
>>7540053
probably the only right answer in the thread
>>7540733
maybe people see you as weird because you're the type of person to brag about his intellectual enlightenment on an anonymous meme board. You read Mishima? Didn't he say something like "To look down on the ordinary is to despise what you can't have. Show me a man who fears being ordinary, and I'll show you a man who is not yet a man.”
>>
>>7540913
is it unsafe more than twice a year? in the back of my mind I'm always afraid of getting PKD'd from these things
>>
>>7539081
i feel bad for you. moderation in everything, especially hardcore hallucinogens. i mean for fuck's sake, you use drugs to gain perspective on occasion, but not as a crutch. as soon as you do, you stop relying on yourself as a baseline. i mean, what the hell did you expect would happen if you used potent hallucinogens regularly during your later mental growth stages? it's almost like you're trying to justify your own incompetence by saying anyone who uses lsd once or twice a year is not gaining anything.
>>
>>7540924
that's a good fear to have. twice a year is an arbitrary amount, but it's a good rule of thumb for me. i also think of shrooms as final exams—i've been learning and growing for (half) a year, and now it's time to synthesize all that input for good.
>>
>>7539081
You fucked over your life, don't blame the books. I'm sure you're not autistic, by the way, it's an umbrella term to avoid saying your parents you're an introvert weirdo, just like ADHD for the badly educated and dyslexia for “slow” illiterate kids.
>>
Guys where do you find lsd or shrooms?? I like drugs etc but its all illegal, only thing i could achieve is dxm but bodyload is so stupid. I thought mushrooms are growing during autumn at fields or something like that? Maybe i should try that
>inb4 go to tor
Neet here, living with my parents
>>
>>7540997
yeah, the mushrooms in your local field are probably good to go. I recommend eating a few of those for a super dope high. At least 3 whole mushrooms. All mushrooms contain psilocybin, the hallucinogen you want.
>>
>>7540997
uh, no. no no no. no. no. no. no. do fuckin research. i'll give you a hint though, spore prints.
>>
>>7541010
Also, don't store the mushrooms. Eat them immediately. The reason you can't get high from store-bought mushrooms is because those are stored in refrigerators for weeks before they hit the shelves.
>>
>>7540997

1P-LSD if you're in the UK

Some have greater or lesser concentrations of psilocybin and instead have psilocin, baeocystin, norbaeocystin etc and probably unknown alkaloids

Also psilocybin is simply a prodrug of psilocin which is the active chemical what makes you trip

Acid and weed fucks you up in the long run, I used to do acid every 2 weeks for a couple of years, and I've noticed my memory got worse and I still have mild random hallucinations.

as a schizotypal weirdo, i disagree. psychedelics + isolation (physical, social) can exacerbate it, no doubt, but i think your issue was trust, not drugs.

well THERE'S your fuckin problem. what is this, the 1960s?

oh it was definitely drugs, hppd is only caused by drugs. It may have been a bit of both but the issue was definitely caused by my intake of psilocybin

I was young, stupid, inherited some money and wanted to experience everything after I recovered from cancer. Acid made me feel alive and fixed my depression, I also got into weird abusive relationship with a girl I fell in love with who ultimately ended up dumping me anyways.

Very extreme. I have pretty bad anxiety but it still took more than 15 acid trips before I had a really bad one. It caught up with me in the end, my final few trips became 3 day long panic attacks and huge bats were swooping down from the trees to get me the whole time.

Though I did manage to pause time, see inside my own subconscious, communicate with the future telepathically, have my life force extracted out of my body by deities and wrote words before I wrote them.
>>
>>7541769
I was 19 when I got diagnosed, until then I was that one shy weird guy who only has a couple of acquaintances, didn't really have any social life. My dad died when I was 5 , I guess that fucked my mind a little bit and made me anti social. After a year and a half of chemo (some nasty cancer that required 17 sessions) I started recovering and felt really good, had a lot of confidence, started making friends and talking to everyone. I started enjoying life more, I enjoyed the smallest things and the company of even the dumbest people,life was good.

Then the drugs, abusive relationships and other stuff happened

This desu, everyone in my frat (a drug frat 2bh) has said they've never had a trip where at least one person didnt come out in the following weeks as feeling depressed or slightly psychotic/schizo. Shit fucks you up real bad son, brings out latent mental health problems and exacerbates preexisting ones. People will tell you that it helped them with depression, but what it really does is create an artificial floor. You still have depression, but when you get high and trip your mind is placeboed into thinking that, at that moment, it isnt depressed and when you come down, the floor is removed plummeting you into a deeper depression than before. Psychedelics arent for everyone and certainly not for the depressed or those with even slight societal functioning issues. Like even people who get paranoid when they smoke weed run a high risk of developing schizophrenia later in life.
>>
>>7542987

my thoughts exactly, god bless the internet

Under no circumstances should you take psychedelics for the first time alone. If you can't find someone to sit you, don't even buy them.

>>
>>7543309
It's only a bad idea if you are a moron and forget you are taking a drug and the effects are temporary.
As long as you remember that tripping solo is always the way to go.

As a protip before doing any drug I would avoid any heavy foods preferring fruit or fruit juice. Stay hydrated. And go into things with a certain thing in mind. Try to stay positive.
>>
>>7543309
Your experience on psychedelics is heavily influenced by the setting in which you trip. Having someone present who gets this can make a world of difference in the event that your trip starts to take a turn for the worse, as they can guide you through it. Ideally they can help guide you through it from the get-go so things stay positive the whole way.

if you want to risk jail/hospital time because you're tripped the fuck out and have zero idea where reality is, then go ahead. you're free to make your own mistakes.

if you insist on doing it alone, don't do a lot. that's a topic for a whole other post. do it in a safe comfy place, not at a party, and have your favorite tunes ready at hand. they will help a lot. go with the flow, try to relax, fighting it will only result in bad times.

Protip: If you want to learn about psychedelic drugs, how, when, why, and why not to take them I suggest logging off of 4chan.org/lit/ and spending some sweet time doing research.

I don't know why, probably the anonymity and trolling factors, but 4chan is a horrible place to discuss drugs, especially psychedelic ones. Here's the breakdown:

k e k, is the series any good?

>>7543727
I think the first book has a pretty interesting world and characters

but as the series continues, it's really no exaggeration to say it basically becomes softcore lewdness delivered in the form of brain-implodingly forced puns and tropes ripped straight outta some ecchi anime. I enjoyed fapping to them as a horny teen but honestly if you're on 4chan you should probably just browse /d/ and call it a day. The only book I remember any serious details of is the first one, the others just are a vague recollection of panty shots, time-dilating succubi, and a loin=lion pun that was so forced that I roll my eyes whenever I remember it to this day

So it sounds like it went ok but that poster has had a panic attack before. I'm not saying it's going to be a bad time for him but damn, having someone around just in case to have your back is a good thing.

On a side note, I don't really buy into any ug measurements. No ones uses a microgram scale to test out their blotter (or whatever) after manufacture and then there's the question of yields in first place

Yeah in my acid daze, a couple of summers through highschool before the internets, some blotters were really extreme. Once 4 of us sat in a parked car for a few hours listening to Led Zeppelin pretty much paralyzed from the neck up, none of us were really the same after that night, still to this day some of those tunes almost arouse flashbacks. Good times. Not sure about LSD, new age drugs and NEET lifestyle, sounds scary. I might have been a different person without those years, wife, mortgage, kids and all that but no regrets really. The hippies were definitely onto something in the 60's.

don't call it HPPD, you're just fucking yourself. you'll be ok, all you have is yourself at this point, make the best of it. you can save yourself, whatever that means. Shit is just more honest now, and its fucking hard.

Might get some Leary books. Loved a line about him in the book Orange Sunshine, in which he told one of his wives that he was the most evolved human to ever history.

If you still have an active interest in psychedelics and plan on continuing to use them then"The Psychedelic Experience" is pretty good.

i've lost it completely on psychedelics many times. i've thought i was

>in hell
>thought i was other people
>in a movie or tv show
>thought everyone was me

i like to take a lot and sometimes it's more than i can handle but you can learn more from the bad trips than the good ones.

if you take half of a tab or just 2 tab you should be fine, just chill out at home and listen to music or go to a large park/beach where you can be alone in nature

You failed to recognize what was within your power; ie, medication.

Pretty much. I definitely misapplied and misinterpreted stoicism into a twisted caricature of itself. I don't think it was because I didn't read carefully enough though, I think I just let my ego get in the way.

I am definitely gonna get help. Today actually.

Fuck I am such a tool.

hppd is such a hugely, HUGELY rare thing. you'll be fine, just respect the experience, its not an amusement park, its a learning experience. the lesson can be healing, joyful, or painful.

no but it's a good approximation depending on where the lsd is coming from
dark net blotter seems to have somewhat accurate measurements and at least you don't have the big problem you have with inaccurate dosing with n-benzyl phenethylamines or things besides lsd on blotter

People don't realize that HPPD is actually just light to severe visual snow. Retards ACTUALLY believe that HPPD=flashback to a psychedelic trip where you entire the mindset and start seeing the visuals from a previous trip.

In reality, pic related is what happens, and it can go away with time. Flashbacks aren't 'real', you won't just go from zero to tripping unless you smoke a bunch of weed or get drunk. i.e drugs. But even then it's just your state of mind being altered by another drug which allows you to be put back into a trip-like mindset.

okay what ever happened to moderation, guys?

Well thanks to you guys I now know I have HPPD...
>>
>>7546139
>>
>>7546139
yes, and still extremely rare.

there are no great stats on this, but just consider the number of people taking hallucinogens every year, and how often HPPD turns up, even mild effects.

I'd pull a number out of my arse and say 1 out of 100,000 trips triggering HPPD sounds reasonable, taking into account people are tripping for the first time or the 40th.

That's all well and good. But how do you go about your life with a criminal record/potential jail time?
>>
>>7546145
I LITERALLY have had this for years before I ever started doing drugs? This is equivalent to HPPD? I can stare at a carpet and watch it slowly wave

I remember as a kid lying in the pavement picking tar out of gaps in the road and from close up seeing the pavement like it was liquid

Psychonaut is a term originating in contemporary occultism so they might both have taken it there, or all 3 arrived to the word independently as its not a hard word to think up if you want to describe "exploring the mind"

Could you elaborate on that? I have no idea what that means exactly and sounds possibly sick as fuck

Unless you just mean zodiac signs. That's not sick as fuck.
