To introduce this story I would like to provide a little background first. This story took place on a friday evening and describes my experience at my first rave on two grams of high quality mushrooms. (17th or 18th generation) I was also told that the shrooms I was given were part of the stronger, younger ones that are picked earlier because of better potency.

Whether this was true or not was irrelevant because I had previously dabbled with the same shrooms and knew their capabilities. Usually I would smoke weed during the come up/ peak of my trip to help alleviate nausea but at this time I was not smoking but up until that point was a very chronic smoker. So at the start of the day I had to wake up to take an exam at 8 a.m. and had only recieved about two hours of sleep the previous night. (went to bed stoned almost every night so probably because I was taking a break) I snorted some adderall that morning before the exam and began drinking that afternoon. I was already a bit tipsy by the time I ate the two grams.

This experience was comparable to when I ate a straight eighth because I grinded them before consumption for the first time.

So I eat the mushrooms at roughly 6:30 and the rave took place from 9-2. I came up hard and as we were backing out of my friends driveway to go, I felt the process of backing up playing in a loop for roughly 5-6 seconds which was slightly terrifying for the moment but was fine after. So we arrive and get in and I was going crazy. My eyes felt more open than taking stimulants and when I started dancing I could not stop. My energy just kept building and building on top of itself. I used to be a very quiet and reserved kind of guy which has changed in general but is sometimes still the case. Shrooms flipped that on its head. They make me feel extremely open and social. Also, alcohol and shrooms really amplifies my feeling of not giving a fuck at any given moment. I must have danced right in the front of the club for roughly an hour and forty-five minutes before things took a bad turn.

Suddenly, I felt very nausetious and went to the bathroom and puked heavily. I was dehydrated from shrooming, drinking, and dancing despite drinking 3-4 cups of water right before going to the rave and drinking two water bottles at the venue. From that point on I couldn't dance because at every attempt I felt sick again. Also, I did eat before taking the shrooms which probably was not the brightest idea. So I wait for my friends outside and notice that my mood was saddened because I couldn't dance.

Shrooms made me feel animalistic in a primal sense. I felt connected to every single person dancing with me in a way I can't really describe. I felt more in the moment than most any other time in my life.

Despite puking, when I was dancing I felt on cloud nine. It felt like a headspace combination of being drunk and coked out because I felt so amplified. To clarify, for most of my life I have been a introvert. Being an only child in a small family is probably partly responsible for this but at this rave I felt everyone else's energy just magnetizing and charging my own. Shrooms have always made me feel very extroverted and outgoing. Raving on shrooms was a fantastic choice but my friend that partook with me did not seem to be as extroverted as I was. Many say that LSD seems to loosen the borders of their mind and while I do agree to an extent from my anecdotal experiences, I personally felt that shrooms had this effect much more intensely. I still had a great time at the rave and went back with a group of friends to continue drinking into the night.

The main thing I learned from the experience was how to feel more relaxed in a large setting. Even though my experienced rave friends of my group said it was mild compared to other places, I still thoroughly enjoyed myself and would gladly munch on some mushies and attend another one.
