Xorkoth's note:

Welcome, psychedelic adventurers and novices alike!

I have created this thread with the intention of providing a new place for basic mushroom questions to be asked and answered. This, I hope, will cut down on the sometimes very large influx of new threads started by mostly new members who have questions about where to start with mushrooms.

From now on, please refer to this thread with any basic questions you have about mushrooms, and please feel free to post in here about the topic as much as you'd like! In the future, new threads started asking these questions will be closed and directed to this thread, or merged with this thread if they haven't been covered yet.

Enjoy! ;)

(edit note: moderator, could u put this in the Drug Basics discussion please? Sorry for mis-posting)

I've eaten shrooms twice before, first time was awesome, second was moderate-bad.

I'm getting ready to enlist in the Navy and they're obviously gonna give me a piss test, and I was wondering if shrooms even showed up in a piss test, or how long it took to get out of my system.

I'm pretty active now, and I haven't done any drugs in about a month (and a month before that (1.5 hits of E))

I figured since I have two 1/8s left I'd have a good time with a friend one last time before I leave.

Also, I'm currently sick and was wondering how that might play into the game. I plan to wait until I'm not sick, but wondering how my immune system will take it.

Notes: first two times I ate a 1/8 to myself, figured this time I'd eat .5-.75 of an 1/8.

All input is appreciated.

first of all, regarding the drug test, the standard piss test does not look for mushrooms. And about you being sick, i'd say smoke some bud to calm your stomach(unless you dont want to cause of the piss test, in which case i'd recommend waiting 3-4 days after you get better)
 
Since this is now Big and Dandy, I'll ask a question thats been bugging me.

I get very nervous when I trip, due to anxiety disorder. Because of this I've dosed less than 2 grams all 3-4 times I've tripped.

I'd like to have a proper trip now that I know what mushrooms feel like.
Will a higher dose trip (3.5 grams) cause more come-up anxiety?

I'm basically wondering the same thing, my highest dose has been around 2.5 grams.
 
I usually take an eigth each time, but always find that my anxiety completely dissapears once I start actually tripping, except for the last time (my girlfriend called me crying while I was peaking and I couldn't understand a word she said, so I eventually came to in about an hour and was able to converse on AIM and all was good once again)

But yeah, I find that mushroom comedowns are the complete opposite in that all that anxiety leaves and you just end up laughing yourself retarded.
 
"Will a higher dose trip (3.5 grams) cause more come-up anxiety?"

It's been a long time, but I don't think the anxiety level goes up significantly with a higher dose.

Once you make the breakthrough and you're "there" you kind of become too busy being amazed to feel nervous.

It's quite possible, with a higher dose, that something will happen and you'll get the giggles.
 
Actually, Anxiety level and generally all side effects go up with the dose. But once the trip begins to subside, things get wonderful, you feel good to be alive and just all around good. If you think anxiety may be a problem, think about keeping some xanax or valium handy just in case. Or you could take some percocets while you are tripping to take the edge off, which ever type you like best. Please dont assume that anxiety will not go up with the dose, that is rather unrealistic.

Are you nervous while you trip or just during the come-up? If its just during the come-up then I don't see why you would continue to be nervous. Like tripoli said, once you enter mushroom space fears and anxieties usuaally leave as the amazement begins.
 
The come up is generally bumpy, but it tends to die down when the main effects begin, but Anxiety is generally present the whole trip for me, and normally im NEVER anxious. You may feel antsy during the peak, but like I said, if you are nervous about it, having some benzos will definately help if things get ugly. Even just having the rerassurance that you can do something about it if they do could help a lot.

Caution is better than saying "It proabably wont happen because everyone reassured me."
 
"Please dont assume that anxiety will not go up with the dose, that is rather unrealistic."

That just isn't true for me, personally.

Whether I munch 1/2 a gram, 2 grams, or 4 grams the anxiety is always the same for me.

What's different is the energy level of the trip as it's starting, and I guess I don't associate that with anxiety as much as I consider it an aspect of the journey.
 
yeah, I understand, but it is hard to predict a person's reaction. And when someone less experienced is asking advice it is better to be safe and not dismiss their worries to make them feel better, or because you have a different reaction.
 
Mushrooms, for me, are the only psychedelic that really still causes me anxiety. They've always caused me a tremendous amount of anxiety on the come-up, on the majority of my trips with them. If I don't give in to that anxiety, then by the time I'm fully tripping, I'll be blissful.

I also personally find that an increased dose increases the anxiety, for sure. Small doses are quite manageable (though still nerve-wracking sometimes for a while), but large doses can have me in some really bad places while they're coming up.
 
Good point.

I hate liars and I really want to be as honest and as helpful as possible here.

I think that focusing on the anxiety sort of increases the anxiety - and believe me, I'm a very high-strung, anxious person by nature, so I wouldn't want to put anyone through that.
 
Dont treat anybodys response here as some magic greenlight to doing as much mushrooms as you want. You should take the advice here and use it to help you make your own decisions. Please think about what you do before you do it.

Yeah, because that's what I was planning on doing.

I like a low dose for socialising and creativity, plus nightvision. Also, the yearly hunt for shrooms is always a natural high
