I wake up every night thinking about death and how time is going by so fast. I told my wife I simply have no peace anymore and am becoming fixated on death. I want some peace in my mind as this is getting worse.

I’ve read about people losing their fear of death etc. from psychedelic use and I want to give it a try. It’s great that it will be fun but my primary purpose is to see the universe in a different way and come to grips with some of these questions and enjoy the great life I have. If it’s scary to take a high dose I think I’m prepared to face it, so I was looking at 300mg. Am I gonna blast off way too hot? I figure a high dose for a first timer is most likely to rock me out of my lane.

Would love any insight, trip reports, etc.

While I agree that 300 micrograms is a bit much for a first time trip, I would actually encourage you to seek out something a bit different: you should take part in a guided psychedelic therapy session with a therapist in your area. They tend to offer relatively high-dose (300 to 500 micrograms) experiences in a focused and controlled environment. I think it'd safely provide the sort of insight you are seeking.

I would like to do this and that was my first thought, but have no clue how to connect with a guide.

I don't know if you've already done it, but here's my two cents.

Before trying this, I've only done DXM and 3meo PCP. I've tripped about 10-20 times on DXM, 2 4th plats, everything else 2nd or 3rd. 3meo PCP I've done 3 times. First time at 10mg, second at 20, third at like. At least 50mg I bet, that time was an accident.

I decided to do 300ug, because the way I look at it, if you aren't taking a heavy dose, it's a waste of drugs.

It was definitely a new experience, one unlike anything I've never experienced before. And there were definitely times where I had next to no control on the direction the trip went. I technically had a friend with me, but he was tripping for the first time on 200ug in a different room, so for 90% of the trip I was by myself.

There were times I also felt overwhelmed, but not in a bad way. It was just so much going on that I couldn't process everything going through my head and everything I was seeing, so I couldn't remember much of it.

So basically, I think that if you think you can tough it out, and you can remind yourself that it's just a trip, I'd say shoot for 300ug. I know that if I could go back, I'd start with 300ug again without a doubt. But that's just me, if you wanna play it safe, stick to what the others have said.

Interesting. I plan on clinging to the fact that it’s just a trip and I’ll make it back safely so embrace the whole thing. Will see! Thank you!

Also want to know this one.

Not likely. While everyone likes to have the word 'treason' bandied about, if Trump is personally charged with anything it will probably be bank fraud, and tax fraud. In terms of the Russia connection, i suspect he's kept himself insulated enough to avoid too much directly from that, though if there were anything, it'd probably fall under espionage.

That definition of espionage (earlier in the thread) was pretty on point. I could see this reasonably being a charge.

I get that this whole situation is ridiculous, but we shouldn't resort to insulting people for attending a rally. I get what Trump is accused of doing, I get what is going on is not okay. That doesn't mean we need to resort to school-yard mud flinging.

That's the exact kind of divisive thinking that resulted in the current problem in the first place. Think about it, would seeing this comment make you question your current perceptions and outlook, or would it affirm your belief that your opponent has nothing of value to counter/argue with, and that the people with your beliefs are the only reasonable ones?

The way through this is listening and honest open-minded discussion, not tribalism. Basically, America needs a marriage counselor for the left and right.

Sigh, you are right.

That Daenerys will end up with Tyrion. Seriously, I’m tired of being laughed at. I can’t be the first to have this theory.

Here is my reasoning though. GRRM always unites characters with a challenge or outcome antithetical to their character. So Jaime is a selfish jerk that loses his hand and becomes an honorable altruist, Jon is the bastard that is actually the heir to the throne, Daenerys is the weak helpless girl that becomes a conquerer, Sansa is the naive diva that becomes a hardened political operative, etc. You are all pros, you know this.

So, what is Tyrion’s Achilles heel? Women. And in the book how often is Daenerys described as the most beautiful woman in the world? And how much pain does our beloved dwarf suffer because he just wants to be loved? So how strong would the irony be if the most beautiful woman in the world chooses the ugliest imp? It just fits, IMO.

I’d rather Tyrion end up with Sansa.

I could see that.

Except Jon isn’t an alpha male, he doesn’t enjoy killing, he isn’t brutish or overly aggressive and he’s reluctant as a leader

Killer, Lord commander, king of the north... no leadership in him at all.

Haha, but I take your point.

I am psychologically prone to depression. I read Michael Pollans book and think this could help me change my depressive cycle and exhausting anxiety. But the substance is still illegal. Any suggestions for studies etc. I could sign up for? Is there a path the average person can take?

Sorry bud, if you wanna get shrooms you gotta do what the rest of us do, obtain them illegally. You would be damn lucky to be part of a study.

I slowly realized that money isnt everything. I found out that everything will sort itself out in due time. Chasing the money isnt my goal anymore, rather now, my goal is to actually see something through all the way. Since i got lost in the chase a few times, i wanna finish something instead of backing out when things get rough, hence why my only long term goal is to make it through law school.

Hell yeah, get it and be proud. I shed tears when I finished my program because I’d worked so hard for so long to get it done. Felt great.

Im looking forward to it! Its taken me longer than normal to finish my degree because of various setbacks along the way, but im 2 semesters away, and I take the LSAT this fall. A professor of mine told me that regardless of how long it takes, all that matters is that I finish, and that's stuck with me.

He or she was right. You will have the pride forever, as long as you don’t compare yourself to other people. I’ve learned to never measure my accomplishments against others or my joy will be zapped real quick. If it’s a triumph for me it’s still a triumph. I battled and overcame my obstacles, fuck the rest.

I think it's just the colors. Since everything is a bit muted, including the sunflowers, itd be better to go with either sunflowers on both or the red/orange one on both!

Agreed. I had medium dose psilocybin and I felt that helped me a lot as well. I want to do a more “spiritual” dose soon for healing but alas don’t have access to the stuff.

Whole milk is more filling, but I prefer a high fat diet as I don’t gain as much weight so I keep my dairy intake to heavy whipping cream for my coffee and that’s it. What do you use milk for?

My heroes are just humans and nobody knows anything, really. We are all stuck on this rock, clueless.

I didn’t go to chapel because I was working to pay for tuition.

Martin Luther King jr. Civil rights movement aside, he had the police called multiple times for orgies, prostitution, and other sexual issues... while he was married... his wife was not involved... aaaaaaaannnnnnnd he was a minister. JFK even had to call him and tell him to tone it down because it was undermining the work they were doing. JFK, a man who makes Bill Clinton look like a saint, told MLK to tone it down.

Thank goodness MLKs message was pure, because he was not.

Same!

I'm not happy at all. My life is fucking boring and lonely. I'm 19 and I have yet to do anything romantic or sexual with a girl, and when I do try to start something, I get rejected and/or ignored. It's like no one is interested in me and it's nuking my self-esteem and will to live. Also my parents are fucking asshats.

This will seem insulting but you need to dig deep. You cited a bunch of externalities as the root of your unhappiness. You keep that up your life is so fucked. The world will always fuck you and be unfair it’s a given,

Just choose happiness every day, even when everything is shit. everything else will come, women are turned on by confidence and turned off by moping. People will perceive you as you perceive yourself,

Good luck!
