Great First Time
Preparation: I had never taken boomers(what we call shrooms here) before, but a lot of my friends had. I had been asking about them for a while and one day decided to do them. My friends told me to have a big breakfast (because I was taking them around 10:30 that night) and eat nothing for the rest of the day.
Dose: I followed their instructions for preparation and went off to work around 3 pm. When I returned to my house I called up my friend who had the boomers and bought 1.8 g of them (which was suggested for my first time). I ate them around 10:30 and washed them down with orange juice. My friend had also picked up an ounce of Northern Lights (high-grade cannabis) and offered to pack a bowl. Being a pretty heavy smoker, I could not turn down a bowl of headies.
Experience: Almost immediately after finishing the bowl I began to feel very high, as if I had just smoked an 1/8 ounce of headies to myself. This high just kept increasing and increasing to the point where I was unsure how to do basic things such as light a lighter(I had to have my friend light a cigarette for me). My friend wanted to jump on my trampoline, which I immediately agreed was a great idea. It was about an hour after I had taken the shrooms at this point. Another friend I was with who had also taken shrooms had an 1/8 ounce of some Mid-Grade weed, so we decided to smoke a few bowls. I was a little disappointed that about an hour and a half into the experience I had not seen any cool shit yet as I was promised. About 15 minutes and 5 cigarettes later I took a walk on my back deck to piss. This is when I had my first hallucination. I was passing shrubs that surround my back deck and it looked as if they were moving in very human-like motions and whispering something that I could not make out. After returning to where my friends were sitting I began to see some really awesome things, many of which I cant describe with words. We then moved inside, which is where my most intense tripping occurred. I was watching TV when I saw my TV from a completely new angle that I've never seen before. I felt as though I was watching myself watch TV, like an out of body experience, but not so vivid. The rest of the night was filled with equally amazing trips until I came down around 5:00 am.
The 'Hangover': The next next was rough. I had not slept for even a second the night before. To make matters worse, I hadn't slept more than a few minutes for 2 days before that. The rest of the day, including going to working the next day sucked. As soon as I got home from work I laid on my bed and slept for about 12 hours. I felt great after that and plan on doing shrooms tomorrow (at the time of this writing).
Final Verdict: Shrooms can be a very enjoyable experience if you know your limits. I am very glad I only did 1.8g my first time. It is a truly life changing experience that cannot be fully explained with words. It must be experienced first-hand to fully understand it.
