3.5 g oral Mushrooms - P. cubensis
    repeated smoked Cannabis


Around late august I decided to experience with various psychoactive drugs. I had no prior experience to any psychedelics except marijuana. One of my friends had owed me some money and he bought me an eighth of shrooms. Well the night before I did them I researched a lot online. The next day I ate all of them... At the same time.

Hour one:
I scarf down a whole eighth of shrooms and give one to my best friend. My friend decides to go to his house and get some things so he had to wait to take them because driving while under the influence of any drug is stupid. Do I decide to smoke a couple joints. Nothing much just to pass the time.

Hour two:
I go back inside and play video games. I honestly don’t know how long I was playing but when I got done….I stood up my whole head was numb and every time I walked around it felt as if my legs were shrinking then growing as I walked. It was like the seen in alice in wonderland where she finds a vial that says “drink this” and she grows and shrinks.

Hour three:
By this time several “waves” had hit me. Every time one would come on I would start to zone out. I'm talking like not know where I'm at or what the hell I'm doing or why I am even on this earth. And I start to have mild hallucinations of garden gnomes like the ones on the travelocityyyy commercials. I had also heard that if you go outside it will be so much better so I decide to take a little walk. I'm walking down these gas pipelines that run right beside my house and these pipe line things run for at least 2 miles just straight with trees on both sides so it’s a huge wide path that goes on forever. I'm walking down the path my legs are still growing and shrinking as I walk. And the trees on the gaslines start to wave. I call my friend to see where he is at and he said he is going to ride his four wheeler over to the gas lines in about an hour so I was like shucks. (tripping on shrooms by myself! Bad decision on my part)

Hour four
My friend shows up on his four wheeler. I swear it looks like he is going a thousand miles an hour and when he comes to me I'm sitting Indian style. And this is what I said according to him. I had drifted out of my mind and came to the conclusion that I was his father cuz I had been tripping longer than he has and that whenever I come down I want him to continue tripping for me because whenever I stop tripping that will be the end of my life and I will get to see jesus and god. I was actually excited and couldn’t wait to die. I couldn’t wait to see jesus. We smoke a couple bowls and enjoy some nice camel crush cigarettes which I put out on my hand and couldn’t feel anything. He eats his shrooms and he starts to trip too.

Fifth and final hour of the trip
We come up with this crazy idea that if we run as fast as we can and run into each other we will trade bodies and I could be him for the rest of my life. So we do that and sadly it doesn’t work but I soon figure out that I can peer into his soul and find out more about his life so we stare at each other. He decides to go home because by this time its 8 30 and I start walking home. I get home around 10 and lie in my bed just waiting to see jesus and fall asleep.

It was the best trip of my life and by now I have taken a lot of psychedelics. And in my opinion shrooms were the most opening of all of them. It changed my life forever.
