My sister and I were at my house during Labor day and we were pretty much bored. My friend calls me to hang out in my house, I said "sure", he said he had something lined up. When he came over he asked me if I ever did shrooms. I said I never did and probably will never do it. My friend and my sister tried to convince me (even though my sister never tried it), then I came to the conclusion that I pretty much wasted my extra labor day off, and decided to do it.

The first half hour-ish nothing was really happening, not to mention they tasted kinda gross. I was playing video games with my friend, until suddenly things started to feel weird. My hands felt like they had extra sensories I started to feel things like my microfiber rags, I felt my face and that's when things started to illuminate. The colors were amazing and vibrant! I stopped playing video games stared at the pictures in my house and started to endlessly talk about them. It was like the colors were almost speaking to me. My sister started joined me.

After a few minutes of that, my legs started to feel wobbly. My sister said something, and we all started to laugh uncontrollably. It was like a chain reaction, one person laugh then everybody did. It was impossible to suppress the laughter!

We took a long walk outside and decided to walk to Forest Park. We were talking about anything and everything. The conversations came back were about life, being an animal, and we had so many jokes, we all could've been standup comedians. It was almost like you were a kid and a grownup at the same time. For one instance, me and my sister decided to skip just to do it, then the next minute we were talking about millions of years of evolution, then our philosophies on life. I just felt good to be alive! (I bet we were loud as all holy hell too)

When we went back to my place, I felt like the most optimistic person in the world. I thought to myself "Why feel sad, ever?" I was starting to get tired because we walked and talked for hours. We all decided to crash for the day.

I woke up the next day and it seemed that all of those feeling evaporated. I was a little disappointed, because I would give anything to be that happy once again. Oh well, there's always a next time....

I have used mushrooms a total of three times... First time, they were not very potent... Second time not enough... Third time, bad trip...

I don't mind the 1st and 2nd, but would not wish the 3rd on anyone. It was a bad time... All I wanted was for it to end or to just die. At one point I didn't think it was ever going to end...

I never had this experience with LSD. Always an amazing time. Ive only had real LSD three times as well. I once had a very amazing visual hallucination of being inside my gaming console, at the time I believe it was an original Play Station LOL

Sober for ten years... If I tried any sort mind altering substance at this point I believe I might lose my mind...

I do have days like those you're searching for without any type of drug. Often, they come with some sort of awesome realization or "revelation". This often entails letting go of stigma or guilt that most of us carry throughout our life and finally letting go. If that makes any sense... Similar to your comparison of being a child and an adult at the same time. Its an awesome feeling that you never want to leave but it always fades over time. Many claim they have achieved a permanent state of "nirvana" and often compare it to childhood...

As others have already said, don't do it in excess. Drugs can be great every once in a while.

I hope once was enough for you. After chronically altering my reality, I discovered that I had changed my perception of my world. This distortion of the real can become very attractive as a means to escape. There were times that I thought the trip had never ended. I came out as an Atheist then. I learned all that I could about the nature of hallucinogenic experiences, and the correlation to how the mind processes sensory stimuli. This experience can very positive by opening up your world to new and exciting possibilities or like me make you seriously skeptical of everything. I hope for you the former is true.

A long time ago, in a university housing complex far, far away, a few friends and I were spacing hard to a fungally-enhanced version of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Cliche, I know, but it really sounded extra-amazing under the influence. We were staring at a candle in the middle of the coffee table, and one of my friends picked up an erasable ballpoint pen and started dipping the eraser end in the flame. The rubber eraser started burning and dripping little fireballs into the candle. We were all mesmerized... staring... spacing...


The ink in the metal cartridge vaporized and fired a flaming eraser bullet surrounded by a wad of boiling blue ink directly into the neck of my friend's girlfriend. We all had heart attacks, laughed for about twenty minutes, and then realized that the poor girl was in the bathroom dealing with a nickel-sized burn and gobs of plastic and ink in her hair. Come to think of it, she may not have actually done any laughing after the explosion.

We learned an important lesson that night: In a pinch, a ballpoint pen can be used as a nonlethal firearm. No wait, that's not it. Uh, don't play with fire? No, no. It'll come to me...

Anyway, it didn't take me long to discover that I lack the superhuman constitution to keep up with a rigorous drug or alcohol regimen. It just takes too much out of me. I'll have an occasional beer or caffeinated beverage, but other than that I've been chemically very boring for a long time.

Like Jim, I never tried crack. As to everything else, uhmm, cough, (looks at his shoes). The initial experience can be fun. However, just remember Newton's third law of motion. For every action here is an equal and opposite reaction. Or, in this context, for every high, there is an equal and corresponding low. Have fun, but be careful out there. Other than us godless, apostate, heathens caring about our fellow infidels, there's no angels out there to watch over you. (Damn, I'm starting to sound like my father).

Over the years I've tried most drugs (never tried heroin or crack) and shrooms are by far the most enjoyable. But, that state of mind is to seductive to be getting into very often.

I'm definitely not making it a habit anytime soon. It just felt so good being that way for atleast a day. Not all drug experiences are negative.
