Thread: First Time Trying stuff At Coachella

    Moderation is key, really. Moderation and just keeping a base that no matter what happens you are going to be ok. Also not allowing these said substances to over power your ability to decide what is and is not socially appropriate. For example, the wizard was probably having and amazing time running around the polo fields, its when he decided(or the drugs decided) that wearing next to nothing was not enough that he got into trouble.

    There is however the possibility you are one of the unfortunate people born psychotic or schizophrenic to a small degree and these substances then bring out those qualities. In that case, you are just crazy and tripping with 70,000 people.

    this is great advice. I dropped for the first time around NYE in a park with friends and then waited until Sunday @ Coachella for my second time.... and it was fucking awesome

    I wouldn't say normalcy, but acid is was easier to control because like you said, mushrooms pretty much have a mind of their own.

    This right here is why doing these at a festival for the first time can be dangerous. You can ruin one night of your 3 days of coachella, plus ruin doing something fantastic like acid forever.

    For a first time it's all about not trying to go balls to the wall and take too much. There is always the really intense part of your trip, but once you pass that part it's an amazing adventure. The one time I lost it tripping was when I took 6, that was by far the most intense night of my entire life. So like a lot of people have said before, do it in moderation and a more relaxed and confortable environment first. If you feel it is something you can handle in public than go for it.

    Edit: I'm also pretty surprised at how many people on these boards have only dropped a few times, not that I know many of you, just thought more people were on this tip.

    I think experiencing terror for Fever Ray is mandatory and the mushroom part of the cult just made it hit harder and more profoundly.

    I also agree with this.

    I really think you should stop worrying and take some fucking acid. I've tripped roughly about 6,000 times and there have only been a couple occasions where it wasnt themostfunever! and one that I would call maybe a bad trip.

    The "bad" trip was me eating some bad shrooms at coach 08 and just not enjoying myself, I had to leave roger waters and lay down for awhile. Patrick was there to take care of me but it was nothing serious. Thats it.

    I suggest acid because like I said earlier and other people have repeated, shrooms can get intense. The come on is whats unpleasant for me and its taken a few times for me to understand them and what to expect.

    naaa, people just say that because its named "acid"

    Trust me, if it was called bark or root or something natural/friendly sounding people would be much or embarrassing towards it... Ecstasy anyone?

    But here is the best way I have been able to articulate the difference, at least in my opinion
    Acid = Bliss through knowledge
    Shroomz = Bliss through confusion
    Both of which are awesome and do their own thing for you
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    Personally, and I bet alot of people will disagree with me on this one, I would take ecstasy before taking anything like acid or shrooming. When you take ecstasy chances are you will still experience some of the properties of acid and mushrooms. You are much less likely to experience a bad trip on E than you are on acid or shrooms (This is based on personal experience and that of people I know). I would never advocate doing any new drug at a festival or show, because if you do start to have a bad trip it would be very difficult to escape from the noise/lights/people/etc. Do research before taking any drug.

    So you think shrooms is a more controllable trip than acid?

    I think so yes. You can eat a little bit shrooms at a time and get yourself where you'd like to be (granted the come on can be way heavier with powerful shrooms). I have taken one hit of acid and been on a complete mind fuck for 14+ hours.

    There lies the difference, when I started experimenting with mushrooms nobody told me a little would do the trick so I've always taken around an 8th all at once. Never really tried the little bit here and little bit there trip with fungi, gotta try it soon though to see what you're talking about. I have never taken 1 tab that gave me 14+ hours of tripping, but haven't met many people who have. I've always had very good quality tabs though, just not 1 14+ hour tab.

    If you are 30 years old, 6,000 times would mean you fried every other day of your life plus another half a year spread out throughout that. Regardless of how old you are I highly doubt you have fried 16 years out of your life.

    So Sunday night at Coachella will be another acid night in the campgrounds? YES!

    Oh and I fully support the idea of munching on mushrooms slowly. Never again will I eat a full dose. Moderation is key and this is just a great way to stabilize your trip over a span of 5-6 hours. I also fully support doing acid at Coachella. While you are less likely to experience a bad trip on E, you don't get the awesome mind fuck, same body fry, same visuals, etc... And to be able to trip for 6-12 hours for as little as 5bucks?? Do yourself a favor and grab a couple tabs and plan a nice evening with music, art, and the outdoors.

    oh: hippy or candy flipping at Coachella is also supported. E is a really good way to take that mind fuck around crowds edge off.

    Don't listen to Salah. Everyone handles shit differently and you need to figure out what's good for you before you potentially ruin your $300+lodging+transportation+food+merch+survival supplies(+drugs) weekend.

    But once you've tried "stuff," there's few finer places to experience it than well-run music festivals.
