    I have done shrooms twice.

    Once it was fresh shrooms, no blue mold or anything. I ate half of one and felt so sick and so paranoid for 3 hours.
    I tried really hard and managed not to throw up, after the 3 hours I had lots of fun.
    I dont know if this was because I was acting like an idiot with my friends or because my stomacheache stopped.

    The 2nd time I ate one shroom. It was about 2 months old. Started throwing up everywhere after 20 mins. Felt sick for hours after that and didnt want to crawl away from the toilet.
    It slightly affected me this time, I was horrified by glowsticks or any flashing lights and the fun part...my friend started rotting.
    It was sick and I was horrified at first because zombies scare the living shit out of me, but after awhile I sorta laughed it off and enjoyed zoning out of our conversation and watching her face decay and melt. XD

    But with both times, it was fun but it wasn't worth the nausea and the paranoia.

    Anyone else experience the same nausea/paranoia at first?
    Anyone know how to overcome that?

    I wanna do shrooms again but these experiences have steered me off them for awhile.

    Dude, do you know what kind of shrooms they were (cube, cyan,
    azurescens, etc)? Sounds like they were either really potent, really big,
    or you're really sensitive to psilocybin... I know for myself (assuming
    cubes since they're used most commonly), 1/2 a fresh shroom or even
    a whole one would not do much at all. Maybe just get my body a little
    tingly or something...

    Anyways, nausea and shrooms has never really been a big problem for me,
    but a lot of people have had success with motion sickness stuff like
    Dramamine (diphenhydranate, normal dose or it'll make you really tired) or
    ginger. Taking them on an empty stomach can help. Staying quiet for
    awhile after taking them helps as well, since it usually goes away on its
    own...

    Paranoia sucks. I find that there are 2 kinds... the "Everyone is after me,
    everyone knows, work is going to fire me, and I'm going to get arrested"
    paranoia, and the "My life is worthless and everyone hates me" depression-
    paranoia For me, tripping alone tends to make the "everyone hates me"
    thing worse, being with a few friends usually eliminates that. Try to take
    your mind off it before you get in a thought loop, do something fun. Try a
    change of scenery. Remember that its just the drug. If I do those things,
    it usually just fades away...

    I have come across single cubensis shrooms that would equal the same as a low-moderate dose.

    I sometimes struggle with stomach nausea also when I go shrooming, especially with fresh shrooms. Sometimes I don't find the taste that bad (cubensis are usually fine) but other times I find them too disgusting to eat (philosopher's stones especially) so I just chop them up and put them in tea.

    But don't give up hope on shrooms though. I have often gotten sick while tripping but still had a great time. Just accept the puking as a part of the trip and don't dwell on it.

    eh..I know the 2nd were cubensis.

    The first were..gah I forget the name, but the most common ones.
    Light tan, slightly bad taste. LONG stems.

    I go through the OMG sensory overload paranoia.
    Like..I cant look at a flashy thing or glowstick or anything moving because my brain cant handle it or something and looking at it just makes me freak out.


    I dont like puking. :<


    But thats what I do!
    I hang out with friends and shake glowsticks around and after 20 mins I just start freaking out. D:

    It's not really the mental side effects as much as the physical.

    But yeah..I'll try on an empty stomache.
    I sorta tend to pig out and eat a shitload of pizza and other junk on shrooms. ^^;

    It all may get better for you in time. The negative effects could very well
    lessen or even be eliminated as you grow more familiar with the experience.

    Glowsticks and triptoys as such can seem a little overwhelming to stare at when tripping I agree. If it's making your head spin, just stop doing it. Watch a movie, listen to some music in the dark, smoke a spliff etc.

    Re: fun AND scary while tripping

    Hey, this is my first post :D

    I was intrigued by the title of this thread as it reminds him of his first and only shroom trip. It was a low dose <1 gram) cos he didn't wan't to be tripping balls wen he had to go and face the folks at home.

    I got the paranoia when he was walking to the bus stop but he just found it kinda fun, he felt all sneaky like a secret agent or summin :cool:

    Swim recomends a low dose to any first timers or people who seem to have bad or at least less than enjoyable trips.

    But I am still pretty uneducated in shroomery :p this will no doubt change over the summer though :D

    Did SWIM make sure the mushrooms were clean? Dirt or any other kind of bacteria could be making this whole mess. Next time when You harvest the mushrooms, be sure to wash them with normal tapwater.
