Noob looking for guidance. (LSD)

Discussion in 'Pandora's Box' started by PinkFloyd08, Aug 20, 2008.

  1. So I've been looking into LSD for a couple years now, just doing research and learning about it, a ritual I do before trying anything new. Well, recently my friend came across some and I'm thinking of trying it.

    I'd like to know some things from people who have actually done it, rather than taking the word of stuff I've read.

    How should I prepare myself, and in what kind of environment should I do it in? I'm still living at home with the parents (though my dad is often gone). If I'm tripping would they figure it out pretty easy, or can it be (somewhat)controlled like when you get stoned.

    How long does it generally last? I've heard anywhere between 8 hours to 24hours, with slight effects sticking around for a 24+ hours later.

    How much should I take the first time? I often read that 1 hit doesn't quite cut it and 2 will really set you off.

    What should I expect for an overall experience? What am i going to be feeling/seeing, I know effects can vary from person to person, but generally... what?

    Whats the best way to enhance the trip with weed? and does LSD effect motor-skills?

    What are the chances of having a bad trip?
    Is it safe to do it alone?

    And last of all, what are some thing to do while tripping. One thing I want to do for sure is stick on some high quality headphones and listen to the dark side of the moon SACD, and probably paint/draw and see what the trip produces in terms of creativity.

    One more thing, what are some things NOT to do? (no driving of course) :p

    Thats all my questions for now, I think theres a few more but I forgot them.
     
  2. answers in quote
     
  3. My suggestion would be if you are curious, buy 6 and take one for your first time, two for your second and three for your third experience. This is if you are serious about getting something out of doing it though. It slowly takes you up into the tripping level of intoxication, so your thought process won't be as cloudy as if you took 3 your first time, because with this method, you will have done it twice before taking the 3.
     
  4. Yeah dude salvia sucks balls, its just the worst trip ever and every time i did i just felt horribly depressed. Havent gotten my hands on acid but i look foward to, it looks pretty chill:smoke:
     
  5. How should I prepare myself, and in what kind of environment should I do it in? I'm still living at home with the parents (though my dad is often gone). If I'm tripping would they figure it out pretty easy, or can it be (somewhat)controlled like when you get stoned.

    You don't really need to prepare. don't be scared of it, it's not scary at all. Keep a good mindset, and be around people you trust and like. Always remember you are still in control, you're just hallucinating (ha ha).
    A good environment would be not to be around your parents. Your eyes will be dilated and you might not word things how you usually do. Tripping in the woods or at a park would be a good place to do it if you don't have a free house.
    Personally, I like tripping at night time and looking at the stars, but if you do prepare for being up all night. If you don't, then do it during the day, as early as possible, and maybe talk to your friends about where they'd like to be when they trip too. I like my boyfriends house just because theres a lot of trippy things to look at and throw around in my head.

    How long does it generally last? I've heard anywhere between 8 hours to 24hours, with slight effects sticking around for a 24+ hours later.

    Acid will last usually 6-12 hours. It really depends on how much you take. A tab would cause you to trip for most likely 7 or 8, and two can make it 12 or more. You feel kind of weird after you stop, but if you just go to sleep you should be alright. Try taking melatonin when you're coming down from a trip, to help you sink into sleep more comfortably. Then when you wake up you'll probably be more recharged and feel more like yourself.

    How much should I take the first time? I often read that 1 hit doesn't quite cut it and 2 will really set you off.

    I've only ever taken one hit, but on more than one occasion. It really depends if the acid you get is good or not, if you trust the source I'd definitely say to take just one to start off. If you're not sure, buy two just in case, to make sure your trip is as vivid as possible.
    I'd recommend one hit to start. It's definitely enough.

    What should I expect for an overall experience? What am i going to be feeling/seeing, I know effects can vary from person to person, but generally... what?

    Hmm... well, expect to see a lot of trails, shadows, weird lighting and you'll be feeling pretty groovy. The way it mkes you feel will help you sink into it a lot easier because usually I feel more liquid than normal, not like I'm completely water though. You just kind of flow with it. You'll see colors floating around, I've seen glitter, which was really nice. Stars look amazing, things might start glowing, colors will be more vivid. Things will look as if theyre breathing or moving but it will look a lot more cool than scary, my boyfriend was tripping and looking out the window at a tree and he thought the tree was coming in and growing in. It can definitely do that. really, anything, it just depends on your mind/what dosage you get/etc, but most likely you'll have a wonderful time looking at things.

    Whats the best way to enhance the trip with weed? and does LSD effect motor-skills?

    Smoking weed goes hand in hand with tripping. If you're nervous, smoke a bowl before you take it then after you swallow the tab you can smoke as much as you want. It's a very pleasurable experience when you're high and tripping.
    Some of your motor skills will be affected. You can still walk but you might be a little wobbly, or even might feel a little uncomfortable. I shake sometimes when I'm tripping, and seeing double/trails can definitely mess with your movements. You should be alright, if you're just walking around or sitting. riding a bike might even be alright as long as youre in a place where no cars will come popping out, and you wont have many obstacles.

    What are the chances of having a bad trip?
    Is it safe to do it alone?

    The chances of having a bad trip are pretty much null on one tab. I've never had a bad trip in my life on acid, only on Salvia. You'll be laughing and having a fantastic time, I always know when the acid is hitting me because I'll be talking to my friends and then just laugh for no reason, because I can feel it and see how things are slowly changing and trailing. It's really fun, so have fun with it.
    Yes it is safe to do alone but I wouldn't recommend. You'll wanna be chillin with people and having a good, fun time. Conversations are always fun on acid. I was coming down from a trip once and I was at home, bored, so I just sat in front of my closet doors (giant mirrors) and talked to myself. It was alright but I'd rather be out doing things with people :p

    And last of all, what are some thing to do while tripping. One thing I want to do for sure is stick on some high quality headphones and listen to the dark side of the moon SACD, and probably paint/draw and see what the trip produces in terms of creativity.

    A car ride is always fun, just DON'T DRIVE, smoking weed, walking, chillin at a park/the woods, playing with lazer pointers, drawing, reading is fun on acid too but you might not have the attention span for it, listening to music with bass, dancing, video games, watching winamp visualizations, star gazing, going to the movies, concerts/shows, seeing a paly at liek youre local college or high school if there is one would be fun too.
    really this list is endless, there are so many fun things to do on acid. Sex is really fun. Anything you find enjoyable when you're sober will definitely be awesome tripping. Go down to your favorite place and just take in the views.
    Don't be somewhere with food because eating when youre tripping is just impossible, food is so weird and chewing on things is too.

    One more thing, what are some things NOT to do? (no driving of course)

    Well good that you don't want to drive, because that would not only be dangerous but probably really hard to do and scary.
    DONT:

    --break the law [by this i mean, don't go out and try to break things/tag/steal cars/break into house, etc] just because that could cause you to be arrested and you don't wanna be in a cell tripping.

    --be around people who don't understand acid. if they dont understand or are too serious they might think youre being a dick when you are jsut having fun and being non offensive. ahaha.
    --don't let acid get to you. it's a drug, you don't let weed freak you out or anything, smoking weed is a chill time for you to relax, acid should be the same thing.
    --get lost. that'd be scary, so make sure you're with atleast one sober person, or someone who has tripped before when you do it.

    thats about all i can think of, i hope i cleared up some of your questions, if you have anymore send me a PM and i'll be glad to answer =]
    and, you should follow this up with how your trip goes.
    stay safe, have fun.
     
  6. i plan on tripping again before the summer is over but cant decide if i want to take two hits. ive had an amazing one hit experience (first trip) but the second with two doses was really intense and i aborted (regretfully so ). As a whole how does a one dose trip compare to a two? Im trying to decide if i should just go for it , but one hit is amazing enough for me as is
     
  7. jus take it....

    dont need to research it that much

    doin tabs tonight goin to the dmc world dj chapionship should be good
     
  8. just remind yourself your on acid ifit starts to get too intense. Just take it in any environment your comfortable with really.
     
  9. I took acid for the first time last night. I'm going to try to describe everything I went through.

    1:30 am: I take 2 tabs for the first time. I like to do everything all the way, and I didnt want to risk one not being enough so I took two. I don't know if it was because I had a big meal beforehand (don't really know how the metabolism breaks it down, etc) or didn't let it sit in my mouth before swallowing the tabs, but it didn't hit me. I watched Arrested Development for a few hours, finished season three, and then got up and smoked a cigarette.

    4:00 am: I start getting a little antsy, because part of my pre-conceived notion was of this dramatic, hallucinogenic trip your first time. I later found it its pretty common not to feel it too much your first time, same thing as when we all first start smoking weed. I didn't get high until my third time smoking (and oh, what a day). But, I digress. I was sitting outside, in the cold, smoking a cigarette and I started to notice textures. Textures, textures, textures. I felt everything I could get my hands on.

    4:30 am: I sit down at my computer, talk with a few friends on ventrilo. Around this time it is starting to peak. I try doing the impossible quiz for a long time, but I can never get past question 84 and give up. I start listening to Tiesto, and watching itunes visualizer. Around this time I'm feeling disappointed that the trip wasn't exactly what I imagined and had planned. Oh yeah, i think it's important to mention the fact that I was alone, dad and siblings asleep.

    5:30 am: Tiesto man, fucking Tiesto. He's hitting me really really really nicely. The changes midsong leave me breathless, and gasping for air. The pounding base, the highs, the lows, I follow it all. This music speaks to me, and with the help of visualizer its like I get lost inside it.

    6:30 am: I finally decide to try to go to sleep (haha, no wai!). Needless to say, it DID NOT work. I lay in bed, pissed off at myself for about an hour. I got up and threw up a bit because my lower intestines hurt, and I still don't know why that was. Waiting to see if it happens next time I trip (wednesday) to see if it was related to food, or the LSD.

    7:45 am: I get into my shower, and I literally stay there for two hours. I felt every single drop in my pores, every soap sud slide across my body, everything. I stood under the shower head in many different ways for periods as long as 20 mins at a time. I got lost in the water, it was beautiful.

    10:00 am: I'm out of the shower and I get this insane urge to clean house. It might have been because I got my lip pierced that night (which, btw, I would not advise anyone to do before they trip. It's been a pain in the ass and despite 17 ibuprofens and 5 ziploc bagfulls of ice, the swelling is ridiculous because of how much I played with it) and figured if I cleaned he'd get less angry, or just because I felt like cleaning I'm not sure. I completely cleaned my house top to bottom, it was ridiculous.

    12:00 pm: me and my dad start watching the Bank Job (ridiculously good movie, imo, but that is neither here nor there), and I feel... comfortable, peaceful with everything, and the simple act of talking brought me so much pleasure.

    1:15 pm: I drop one more tap, to hopefully peak things.

    3:00 pm: Colors man, textures again. The leaves in my yard just jumped out at me. I felt like I had superhuman strength, and a deep deep understanding of the world, people, and myself.

    4:00 pm: I drove to work (I'm in college, and I work at wal-mart). Driving was harsh. Poor motor skills, combined with slightly jerky vision, equals no good. But, I made it, and I just felt like I had pretty much all night for a few hours. Calm, docile, happy, talkative.

    7:00 pm: Drove home, picked up some really good bud, was interested to see the effects of this with my LSD starting to come down from peaking.

    7:10 pm: Puff, puff, puff

    7:20 pm: cough, cough, cough

    7:30 pm: cough, puff, etc, etc

    7:40 pm: wow. I've never ever had a high this good in my life, and I've smoked pot from all over the world, and done an insane amount of drugs. I started having a conversation with myself, and it was like I was split into two people, who were just joking between each other . Everything spoken was in song, as well, so it was very very interesting. The logical part of my brain was cracking up at what it knew to be absurd, but I couldn't stop myself talking to... myself! I drove back to work, and oh god that was so so so tough. I can not put an emphasis on it. At one point I even made to turn around and skip work and go back home, but I told myself "be a man!" and I finally made it back to Wally world.

    9:00 am: They had me as a door greeter (I am normally in electronics) because we were short-staffed. Boy, if someone had caught me on video, it was hilarious. I was probably the worst door man ever. At one point I just randomly started spinning around. I think I was trying to get something out of my back pocket, but the reason itself for the spinning eludes me now. The fact is that I sat there and spun... and spun... and spun... and, one more time... spunnnnnn. And NOBODY noticed. Not a single living soul. It's crazy how people tend not to notice things happening outside their little bubble. When I came to this fact, I started to pay attention to everyone around me... and boy, people do some funny shit.

    11:00 pm: Get off work, drive home, sit down, check facebook, my guild forum, etc, and then someone come across this page through Google.


    Sorry this was so farfetched guys, but I wanted to put my experience up on a community of like-minded people and see their reactions and thoughts, and this seemed like a good a place as any.

    If I get any positive replies, I think I will also post about my experiences come Wednesday (three tabs before class, and a bowl of some fine KB).

    That was my experience of my first trip sir, I hope that helps you some!

    :)
     
  10. try more Feaver, n dont drive - bloody dangerous

    thanks for reminding me i gotta try having a shower nxt trip
     
  11. hahaha nice trip bro i laughed mad hard a couple times
















    just thought id let ya know:D
     
  12. Man, we need to meet up and trip together because Iv been really wanting to try lsd lately. Ive been reading a lot of stories on Erowid and I cant wait to try it. There is one thing I must to do when I try it....Lazer Tag :D
     
  13. Buy (IMO) at least an eighth of some nice buds, plan a day that you know no one will be home, or your somewhere that absolutely nothing can bother you. Take 2 or 2.5 tabs (Ive taken just one, slight visual trails but not full out trip) if they are standard blotter paper, put it on your tongue and kinda suck on it for a bit. After about 5-10 mins smoke a bowl just so you come up on it, then you'll get that feeling in your stomach, the butterflies, your about to experience one of the best drugs out there. Put on some good tunes, if your with a friend or two, pop in a comedy, or something trippy like Fear and Loathing. I would also recommend not driving anywhere, walks are bomb, but from my experiences on mushrooms and acid, driving when you cant make out where the divider line is, isnt too much fun. Anyway, you will probably laugh a lot, think about some crazy, crazy ass shit, see some crazy ass shit, and in general have a great time. Throughout this you'll wanna be blazing here and there, weed really enhances the trip. Just have a good time, if you want have a couple benzos just incase it starts to get a little too intense, just remember its just a drug, your still in control, report back after and goodluck :smoke:
     
  14. Old post is... Old.
