tripping out is not something one should take lightly. if one is to take lsd, eat shrooms, etc., then it is important they understand and abide by some essential rules. i encourage everyone to node their own rules here.

my rules:

  • if someone/something upsets you, get the hell away.
  • don't ever trip on a whim; plan it out first.
  • don't trip alone unless you're positive you can handle it.
  • always remain calm. it will all be over soon. you're not going crazy.
  • don't try to fight the effects. drugs are stronger than you, and they will kick you right in the teeth if you upset them.
  • never, ever, ever eat spaghetti.

    from the lycaeum's lsd archives:

  • Cars can hurt you.
  • You cannot fly.
  • It's never a good time to die.
  • taking your clothes off will draw attention.
  • Keep mouth shut at all times in public.
  • Although you may see things that are not there, you'll still be able to see real things. In other words, cars that are present in the street will not become invisible.
  • don't forget how to burp
  • only carry a house-key, some loose change, and your address in your shoe
  • nobody can tell you are tripping till you tell them "I'm tripping".
  • no matter how fucked you think you are, you'll eventually come down.
