    Well, this is just my opinion, but I'm going to say DXM... it really
    depends on dosage and stuff, but I've experienced some WEIRD shit on
    DXM trips. Shrooms kind of have a happier feel, and I've always
    felt more in control of the shroom trip. DXM also being the more
    physically dangerous of the two.

    [EDIT] 05/08/2005: I suppose I should also note here that I have a lot
    more experience with shrooms than DXM... that's probably a big factor

    It depends on the plateau... I think that a third or fouth-level plateau DXM trip will mess you up more than shrooms, but a first or even second plateau trip might not.

    okay. well i've done both & my friend has just done shrooms. dxm fucked me up more than shrooms did, but i only did 2 grams of shrooms when i did them. so i dunno.
    the whole argument was about doing acid because we both want to try that & he was like "oh well you should do shrooms again because you need to see how you will react when you trip" & shit like that. & i was like "well i tripped when i did dxm." & he said that it didn't matter.
    i dunno. i just wanted to see what you guys thought.

    In my opinion tripping of DXM will "prepare" you for lsd as much as shrooms will, even though it is not a similiar substance. Im saying this from experience because I did strong dissociatives alot before I did strong hallucinogens and it sure got rid of all anxiety/negatives that went into tripping on strong hallucinogens. Never had a bad trip in my life and I think it is due to this.
    Back when I first started dxm it was much stronger than shrooms, now I would have to say for me shrooms are stronger. Only because of tolerance.

    RoboCop, you think DXM would prepare me for LSD? I really want to try
    LSD, more than anything else, and it's extremely rare. I know that if I
    ever got the chance, I don't care what it costs, I would buy it. I've
    never done shrooms before... I've only done weed, DXM, Xanax, and I
    think that's about it. I've had an experience with weed that got me so
    fucked up I was pushing both my hands against my head saying "Oh shit",
    and hardly remember what happened, but I was definitely experiencing
    some mild visual distortions.

    I'm scared enough just to take a dose of DXM higher than 400 mg. But
    that's only because I've gotten so fucked up on 250, that if this is
    considered a low dose, then all those higher doses must be totally
    insane. People doing like 1,000 mg every day? Come on, that must be
    psycological torture. I find DXM to be powerful, yet the high comes on
    slowly and is comfortably eased into a tripped out state, where weed
    slams me when I least expect it and scares the shit out of me.

    With DXM it's like "Oh my head feels tingly and it's starting to get a
    little difficult to walk... I'm starting to trip". Where weed is like
    "Fuck, I guess I didn't smoke enough... what a waste." The next minute,
    I'm pressing my head together with my hands saying "Oh shit... oh
    shit... oh shit..." while I wonder if I'm going crazy.

    Lol that reminds me of last night, where I took robitussin couph gels
    for the first time (although not my first trip)... the high was lasting
    so long that I was starting to think that I was going crazy and I'd be
    high for the rest of my life.

    If LSD is so mind warping and lasts so long... I don't know how to psycologically prepare myself for it.

    dxm hit you way harder, but it's also much easier to control than shrooms (I cannot have freaky thoughts on dxm, but I often do with shrooms)

    yeah shrooms have a mindfuck aspect, which has most people questioning
    their place in society, their reasons for existance, etc. I had an
    incredible religious experience, and has lived ever since with a
    greater sense of inner-peace, benevolence and philanthropy towards
    others, and even fewer of his previous vices/bad habits.

    DXM, however, dissociated him from his body, which he really enjoyed,
    but wasn't as profound afterwards. though he claimed to have some
    really crazy psychadelic ideas, the DXM was possible to "sober up from"
    in order to deal with parents/authority figures/straight-edgers. he
    says oh shrooms, he would have been SOL.

    I think shrooms are more powerful in the way they can affect your mental state. Once on shroms a got stuck in a time loop and went crazy for a while. Although i forgot who i was the first time i did DXM(500mg). Kind of hard to compare them.
