FAQ Tags About How To Avoid A Bad Trip
One of my friends is rolling every week and last week she rolled 3 times. How can I convince her to stop!?!
Anonymous

There are plenty of anecdotes online from people who have abused MDMA and then suffered through the consequences. Get her to read some of those, and explain that she is NOT special or invincible. You can’t roll that often and expect to be okay in the long-term, no matter who you are. 

what would be the best way to take MDMA in it's powdered form if I don't want to snort it? would it be okay to sprinkle it over food? or would dissolving it in a glass of water be better?

Put the powder in a gel cap if you have ‘em, otherwise parachute. Which means putting the powder in a small piece of paper (thin toilet paper works best — less paper to swallow!), ball it up and down the hatch! 
You could also drink it down in water, but then you have to taste the MDMA. Ick. 

I took 2C-B and felt a sexual attraction to a bunch of the inanimate objects in my room and to myself. Ever heard of anything like that?

Well, 2C-B can be a lot like rolling. You feel connected to the people and things around you. A lot of people also find 2C-B pretty erotic, which may explain your sexual attraction. You were aroused and seeing beauty in everything around you. 

1) Yes, that’s possible. Everyone has their own unique body chemistry!
2) Post-loading with 5-HTP does tend to help a lot of people with their comedown. It’s definitely worth a try!

hi! I was just wondering what shrooms do in your brain that causes thought loops? they intrigue me. Once while tripping I kept repeating "I have a bad feeling I'm going to get a sunburn" for hours, not knowing that I had ever said it before each time, and then I forgot what all those words meant as a sentence but I kept saying it. I think it's because the thought of getting sunburned made me nervous so my brain just kept repeating it

Well, according to Signal Theory, thought loops are most likely a product of recurrent excitation of cortical circuits. Basically, data goes in one end and comes out the other… but while you’re tripping, the data tends to come back in and circle around again to be analyzed once more. And then that happens over and over again. 

To the people saying MDMA is a psychedelic, no it isn't. MDMA is an entatctogen, it does not substitute for psychedelics in trained rats. Visuals etc don't mean psychedelic. Dissociatives have visuals. You can get visuals on deliriants. Oliver Sacks recounts visuals on taking MORPHINE. The fact is, MDMA is an entactogen, not a psychedelic, though they share some overlap of effects, as do many other drugs.

So my fiancé and I rolled at a festival last Friday. While the afterglow the next day was amazing three days later we both got so depressed. Does this happen to most people who roll?
Anonymous

It usually doesn’t happen unless you roll too often. Or get something else instead of MDMA that has a bigger crash (like meth). 

MDMa is a psychedelic empathogen, anyone who's taken a high enough dose can confirm you can get visuals, time dilation, and a psychedelic headspace from it

Yes, technically empathogens are members of the psychedelic family but IMO rolling is so different from tripping. 

Haha that Neil degrasse Tyson quote is nooooot real

"let me tell you a story. When I was 13, I robbed a dope dealer in Harlem. The next day, I took 40 hits of LSD and stared at the sun for hours. That is the moment I knew that I had to become an astrological physicist." - Neil Degrasse Tyson. Thought I should share this with with you. You have an amazing blog, keep it up :)

NDT is the man. Thanks for sharing <3! 

Apparently this is not a real quote and I am the sad.

Shoutout to my WHY family!

You guys are super lovely and beautiful great to talk to <3

Stay awesome, stay lifted. ✌ 

I know this isn't a question about psychedelics but I remember you saying that you've done cocaine before; when you did (presuming you bought it over the internet) what percentage did you get? I don't know whether to go for a higher percentage and get less, say half a gram, or less percentage and go for the full gram. They both work out roughly the same price but I'm thinking more on whats easier to take.
Anonymous

The coke I had was actually off a street dealer (my one friend who really likes coke has a solid hookup), so I can’t say what the purity of it was. 

But I would say it’s worth the money to get the better quality stuff. Half a gram is still a lot, and if it’s really good then you won’t need as much to get where you want to be!

i took .2 molly and a tab at a show and i found it to be quite overwhelming. do you think it could've been because i am not experienced with real lsd or perhaps i took too much of each?
Anonymous

You probably took too much MDMA. Remember that when you combine drugs they synergize, and are stronger together than they would be if you had took the same amount of each by themselves. 
Also, tripping hard in a public, crowded venue like a show can be a lot to handle. There’s just so much stimuli for your brain to try and register! And that can lead to an overload. 

You keep stressing to space out our rolls and trips.. Are harsh comedowns a warning to stop for a bit? I haven't had a terrible comedown at all yet :c and I don't want one for obvious reasons..but what exactly happens if we don't space out our rolls
Anonymous

The unfortunate thing about abusing drugs is that it usually takes a while for the negative side effects to occur. So you think you’re fine, but really it’s all building up inside your body and mind, and you don’t realize what you’re doing is wrong until it’s too late. 
Not spacing out your rolls can lead to a whole host of bad problems. The most prolific is probably depressed mood and even suicidal thoughts. But the lack of serotonin can also lead to problems with sleeping, appetite, memory and more.
