    Hi!

    We are researchers at Johns Hopkins University working on a research study about psychologically insightful experiences which occurred after taking a psychedelic substance. Psychological insight refers to realizations about personality, relationships, behavioral patterns, or emotions. Insight can occur in complete absence of a spiritual/mystical insight, although spiritual/mystical experiences can sometimes prompt personal psychological insight. This anonymous internet survey involves asking about your experiences, including the short-term and long-term effects.

    If you are interested in participating or would like to know more about the study, please click the link below to the secure study site. We anticipate that it will take you approximately 30-45 minutes to complete the survey. Your participation is completely anonymous. Feel free to send me a direct message with any questions, comments, or concerns.

    Thanks,
    Hopkins Psychedelic Research Team
    IRB approved application IRB00165494

    Just to satisfy my curiosity about the legitimacy of this study, I went to the Johns Hopkins site link above, and read about the principle researcher, "Roland R. Griffiths, Ph.D...Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurosciences at the Johns Hopkins Universi…" He is the real deal, and it seems like his research has been pretty interesting and relevant. So it looks like it would be perfectly safe to fill out this survey, as long as it really is anonymous. (I haven't started yet, myself, but I probably will do it.) After my own research, I give this one a Ladywolf 5-star rating...

    Absolutely. Most of this particular trip was all laughter, but when Shit got escalated at this party, the bad vibrations had me in in search for familiar shelter.. home. Still trippin many balls, Dragonball GT was on the tv. I watched and enjoyed normally, but every time the credits came up and the outro song played.. I fucking balled, like a baby. Every. Fucking. Episode. My friend had just got the box set, so this went on for awhile.

    For some reason, the song put my thoughts somewhere very specific. I never thought about it before, but I realized not what it was doing to me, but what my meth addiction was doing to those around me.. I lived with my grandparents who’ve raised me since my mother died when I was 2. I thought real deep.. and I felt real shitty. How me and my grandpa use to be best friends and now I don’t know what to say to him, so I usually say nothing. I’d walk passed my grandma to go to the bathroom, and I wouldn’t make eye contact or say hello ever or anything. They knew something was up, but they had no idea what, and I could tell it was killing them.

    After that night, I started to think about how everyone perceives me and my actions. That if someone’s in my life in anyway, goddammit I’m gonna make them proud to be, because I choose to be in their lives, but I don’t choose for them, and if someone sincerely wants me around, Shit mofo I gotta show you I appreciate cha’! Started watching tv with my grandma quite often. Although a stubborn old man, I’d help my grandpa with whatever he was doing, even if he wasn’t doing anything I’d offer my help. That was the most in depth look into my own isolated attitude and don’t-talk-to-me demeanor.

    From then, until the following relapse, was the longer I’ve stayed clean off meth. Almost 2 years.. I need to get some of those boomers and troubleshoot my conscious again..

    Hello
    I was just going to contribute to the new thread, which relates to my inconceivable struggle with myself .. exactly ... I do not say that the guilty for the fight are drugs, no, but because of the answers to this thread are just drugs, because without them I would never have realized things that I realize, did not experience pain and all the hell, and maybe I would not be the one I am but a suppressed character that could be with a "normal" reputation and ranked, falling and rising in the "normal" social rankings of values and relationships if you understand what I mean.

    Yes, it is as I say - for me as a long-time user, this environment seems to be, despite all pain and suffering, still imminent, boring, black and white to unacceptable(for my person, my mind). No, I do not see inclusion in the counseling and then work assignment, for which I do not have the predispositions as a way out of the hell I'm living. This IS NOT an anti-motivational contribution for those who, like me, are looking for a way out of drugs as the cause of suffering. Although it may be harder to understand, but the one who knows this will understand with first reading.

    So what I'm saying is that if I look at my situation from a neutral or (if you want) other perspective I can see incomprehensibly that it is not just a struggle with myself, but also how much of it interferes with me(for now as a neutral person, know?). I think it is a repulsive aura that directly induces the present to act. Why is that so?
