Who has done them? Describe your experience.

Me and some friends are going camping next weekend and I was thinking it would be cool to take shrooms before we float the river. Good or bad idea?
  • dovemans

    prepare to drown.

    when doing shrooms stay on land.
    especially if you havent done them before.

    what kind are they?
  • DeadRight

    Go for it.
  • ChrisNeal

    relax, avoid situations that could be intensely spooky, try to make sure one of you is sober, and let them deal with anyone having a bad trip as a tripping person will normally just get a bad trip from helping someone else in one (from my expirence).
    If you're doing them in tea have plenty of sugar, and add a pinch of ginger if you get queezy from the taste, helps to settle the stomach.
    Trying to draw portraits is always fun.

    Ohh god. Here Is my 100% true experience with them. I tried them about 8years ago, I was really sceptical and didn't think they would work. I was staying with my gf at the time and she lived with some typical student druggy types who smoked weed 24/7. They told me they were going to do mushrooms, we went picking one day and came back with a Tesco bag full of them. Later that night we boiled them in a massive pot and made a thick ooze like tea. which we drank in mugs whilst stupidly watching....

    Hellraiser.

    After an hour or so I noticed everything looking and feeling surreal. My mate Alex's face looked odd like it was made of dust and my senses felt tuned into some kind of spirit world. My gf came and sat on my lap, i looked at the skin on her back, which looked like orange peel. I was like wtf?! My fingers suddenly ripped through it, like it was soft wet tissue. In shock I looked up at her and her head spun round like an owl and she had her mothers face! Freaked out I went into the bathroom and got transfixed in the mirror as my face reflection was morphing in and out of my own and that of a wolf. This carried on for an hour or so more until i was ready for bed. My gf was asleep and I couldn't bring myself to pull back the covers as I was convinced her body would be rotting underneath. Eventually I was like "get the fuck into bed you twat" so pulled back the covers and there before me.. Was her decomposing corpse riddled with maggots.

    Personally I love the idea of being able to hallucinate, especially with my imagination. I don't do drugs, but was lured into the nature like aspect of mushrooms! Just don't watch Hellraiser during your trip. ... No actually do!!
  • xul1349

    dude that's....wierd. probably because you boiled them you asimilated the toxins much faster and in a larger quantities.
    usually if you eat them dry you will have an alterated perception of reality. i mean, you know when you drink very very very very much and you star saying wierd things, that you would never say? with shrooms its the same thing but all your senses start acting wierd.And you are consciously all the time.

    oh and its a really good thing not to watch tv, look on internet and stuff.the bathroom its the best place for shrooms:))

    go ask on a drug lover website.. i'll let you in on a secret.. this is a t-shirt design website ;)

    aha but in all honesty
    i've never been drunk, smoked or done any type of drug that wasn't given to me by a doctor & i wont' ever.

    that crap don't interest me & actually im to scared

    you my friend, had some good fucking shrooms.
  • Integral

    I did them with one of my friends, and 2 drunk chicks. I ended up getting locked in the bathroom, in complete darkness. The longer I was in the dark, the more images kept coming out of the darkness to get me.
    I remember my eyes watering the whole time, I'm talking about borderline crying but nothing was wrong, every few mins I had to wipe my face, it was like my eyes were drooling.
    I also remember having a heightened sense of reality. It might sound weird but I could hear things in our Apt building I couldn't hear before. I could hear other apartments shower running, and people talking. Our apt had cememnt walls and floors, so you could do gymnastics in your apt, and no one could hear, so I know it something new I was experiencing. I felt like I knew what people were saying before they said it, almost psychic. It was reaalll weird!
    The last thing I remember is waking up completely drained, I had no energy at all, sensitive to light and noises. I also had a a whole slew of scars and scratches on my arms. I guess one of my friends said I was in the middle of the street thinking I was swimming, doing the freestyle and backstroke on cement! It was fun, but I don't know if I
    would have the energy to do them again.

    Did anyone else notice eyes watering?

    Need to try this.

    rawkid said: Never tried 'em. Or any other drug actually. I heard of a tourist jumping from the 2nd or 3rd floor after doing shrooms here in Amsterdam.

    Yeah, it was in the papers a while ago, some french tourist. But tourist do a lot of stupid shit when they come to Amsterdam (Combining all sorts of drugs etc), and because of that there was a lot of negativity about shrooms.. And eventually they are forbidden now (Except for "truffels") but you probably know.

    A lot of my friends have taken shrooms and had really good experiences with them. I still want to do it myself with a couple of my buds, but haven't had the time.

    I've heard a lot of stories from friends, some about listening to music and actually seeing the sound waves (in color) or that they thought their stairway belonged to some medieval castle. There was also this guy who thought that his television was beying kidnapped by gnomes. I'm also told that when you're in a group and someone sees something and tells about it, you will start envisioning it yourself. (So you can kind of pull someone into your trip)

    I'd suggest you use the shrooms in a safe envinorment that you really know well. Some people say you should do it outside during a sunny day (Because all of the grass and bright colors and stuff), but I don't think going outside is the best idea (Especially if it's your first time). Also you should have a friend who is sober (Just for safety reasons).
    Some of my friends also had a hard time eating and drinking while tripping.

    Probably the best thing to do is get a weird dvd and some trippy music (Trentemoller or some random Tao cd) and trip in your living room. If you're not feeling good mentally, don't do them. (But that goes for all drugs though)

    I'm saying that because I also heard some really bad things about shrooms, like getting stuck in a bad trip for the rest of your life (Ending up in some mental institution, because you think you are constantly beying followed by little men with wings trying to bomb you with grenade launchers). An old teacher of mine that used to work in such an institution for young people told me that.

    It would be wildly terrible idea to take shrooms for the first time then float down a river.

    Seriously? You are asking about this kind of shit on Emptees? ...Seriously?

  • Will Petersen

    Ive done them 3 times. 1st time I felt really ill, lay down in my tent & tripped balls - neon outlines of Bond girls dancing. Then I went out & hit the town, everything was vibrating & I couldn't stop laughing.

    2nd time I went to a Mad Caddies gig & ate them with a 1/4 pounder from Mcdonalds. It was awesome fun.

    Last time I did them I just felt ill & tripped out like crazy, loads of bugs & stuff, haven't done them since!

    I hate when people answer things just to say "I don't have the answer, don't ask me". If you don't have the answer, this question probably doesn't apply to you.

    Anyway, mushrooms are alright, I'm not a huge fan of em. I've always said they're like being drunk on acid. They make you feel stupid and giggly, things kind of blow around out the corner of your eye. More than anything they just make you think weird things and get really confused.

    Probably wouldn't be the best for floating a river. You also occasionally have a really uncomfortable time with tempurature, sticky air, bugs, etc, and sometimes they can even make you feel pretty sick. I would say if you're going to do em, do em somewhere comfortable, where you have access to whatever you might want, glass of water, refrigerator, tv, pencil and paper, etc.

    I did it once it sucked but I was in the ghetto with someone who was sick of living in the ghetto and some shit happened which I won't get into. So just be in a comfortable environment.

  • volatile v

    My best friend and a couple other kids did it. I stayed sober. We were sitting on a couch and one asks "You wanna race man?" and another answered "I got dibs on the caterpillar!" and jumps up as if to get on top of a human-size caterpillar, and falls on his ass. Other than that I couldn't tell you.

    I would say no to the floating on shrooms..go float and then take them

    if you are doing them, take them at camp and don't over do it. try and have a good vibe going..if you are worried or nervous...it will be bad times.
  • nix

    I had a blast.
    Skated around town the entire time. Felt like I was on a mission to get somewhere, but I had nowhere to get to lol.
  • deekin

    If its your first time don't take a lot. Take a half an eigth. especially if you are in a situation where you could drown. Seriously. Mushrooms are great if you are surrounded by nature and good friends. More of a spirtual experience than LSD, less visuals.

    Sometimes I would have to fight through some negative feelings for the first hour. Honestly, I usually throw up after about an hour, and after that its all good.
  • Adhesive Hippo

    Never done drugs and never will, but weird kind of related story: I only got 1 hour of sleep last night. When I woke up this morning, I didn't want to put in my contacts because I had this idea that two armies were attacking each other at a 90 degree angle. One army had long, what seemed to be french curves that they only swung horizontally, and the other army had lance/ax things that they only swung vertically. I don't know what that has to do with contacts, but I refused to put them in. I think I was half asleep, still dreaming, because I don't remember about 10-15 minutes after I woke up.

    This is great advice. Drugs aren't bad or scary or harmful if done correctly. You use them to have fun, so have fucking fun.

    i really wouldnt go on the water. honestly, there are better drugs. anyway, everyone says to have a sober friend, but i dont think thats necessary. As long as you are a chill person, youll be fine, and the sober person there wont have fun. woods are hells a good place to do them.

    Just don't be an asshole and avoid assholes.
    I've spent 4hrs in a bathroom stale scared stupid, and all day at a hippy love fest having the time of my life. Just avoid stress and assholes, and take a shit ton of them, Not really a shit ton but more then you think you are going to need. Also it's not instant,(expect a delay of a few minutes to a half hr before anything fun happens) and they will last longer then you think they do, so plan ahead, you don't want to be rushed for work, or any real life shit.
    and avoid stress and assholes I mean it.

    Fun things to do.
    -Get rained on. (shower if there is no rain, dressed of course, you don't want to be nakie if you freak out and have to run somewhere)
    -Watch a black and white movie, it's incredible.
    -Watch a slide show of porn at a very fast speed.
    -Stroke the furry walls. Fuck it stroke everything.

    this sounds so scary and cool at the same time...

    my girlfriend wanted to try shrooms when we were on a holiday in Amsterdam. But we didn't at the end. I was kind of scared of the effects and the posibility of getting into a fight with her under the effects and kill her...
