Wierd observation - wierd question

Driving into town today while listening to the Dead from 72. Just remembering all the times I tripped when I was a teenager. Pushing 40 now. Doubt if I would ever trip again, but has anyone decided to take the plunge once more? I used to take it more for a self learning trip, no I wasn't a downer, I could be funnier than the rest of em (I think) and still be analyzing the whole scene. I learned quite alot about myself and my friends. Learned they were true friends.
Just wondered what it was like for people as they grew older, looking back on things,
is the trip too intense now?
What a long strange trip it's been.

Well,I'm a lot closer to 50 than 40.Haven't done that in a long,long time and don't ever intend to.Never had a bad trip,just don't think I'd enjoy it the way I did.

Now,if they still made them,I wouldn't mind a 'lude 2 or 3 times a year.

Well, I guess I really brought up the whole question after me and a buddy went to see the Dave Matthews Band a few years ago. I was surprised on how young the crowd was, ton of teenagers, which don't get me wrong I have no problem with that, it was just that I had smoked a joint with my buddy, I've probably indulged in this no more than a handful of times in the past ten years or so and the song Heart of Gold came on. That song took on new meaning right then and there. We just spaced out on the crowd. I don't see smoking the herb now and then wrong, it relaxes me more than it ever did, kinda places things in focus for me. The good thing is it only takes a few tokes and I'm gone.

Well wholly cow, taking a few puffs on a J is sorta different than 'cid.

Not that I, uh, know, or, anything....

Stay away from the cid at our age, stick with the herb.

i'm 48 years young. this is funny s&#@. i have often thought about what it would be like to do some 4 way these days. but i wouldn't dare, i'd be scared -----less. i can't even handle a bone anymore, it was fun then, but i feel good about being clean today, nowadays you need all the edge you can get to provide for your family. but i do breathe deeply at certain events if you know what i mean, that's innocent enough, right?

I was 32 the last time I tripped on my own choosing...which was 18 years ago...damn I hate saying that...

I had just Divorced a Psycho and was getting her out of my system.......

The very last time I tripped was not my choosing....I had went over to my friend of 15 years house..he and his wife were doing some acid...I was 35. They wanted me to do some, but I had a management meeting at work the next day...Saturday morning.

So I smoked a few joints and drank some beers and went to sleep on their couch....My friend was tripping and drunk...and he got to thinking that if he got his wife to put a hit of acid in my mouth...it would revive me from a drunk and I would wake up ready to party.

Well...his theory did not work....I woke up at 6:30 am....tripping with a hangover and a management meeting in an hour and a half. I was fried.

when I got to work, one of the ladies that worked in the office was hooked on Downers and came in out of her mind...she drew everyones attention and the meeting was cancelled...I had on SunGlasses at 8:00 am inside the office...LOL ! and no one ever knew I was tripping because Jane was falling all over the place.

If I tripped now...I would probably lose it for good.

And I hope you had a short discussion with your bud about non solicited acid trips in the future?

I don't why I thought of this but in 10th grade, I was stoned as usual, and the guy beside me wrote on a piece of paper that he passed onto me, "Someone in here's f--ked up." I read it, and thought, well old Brian thinks he's a funny guy so I just nodded at him. After class, I asked him why he sent me that paper, was it that obvious? No, he wasn't talking about me, he was talking about the guy seated beside us who was drunk off his ass. I wondered why he kept talking so damn loud while he was answering questions. Right before that, for some reason our schools have a big footbal rivalry which I never got into. The teacher had take a pop quiz where all the answers were South (the school we went to) then at the end of the quiz we were to say the answers back out loud. Well, I was the only one who wasn't doing it cause I was enjoying the audio entertainment this involved. The teacher got right up in my face, it looked like he was big vapor trail coming toward me and said South as loud as he could. I think he scared the **** out of me at the time, but I tried to maintain. He knew, oh yeah, he knew.

haven't done any class substances in a very long time and have the feeling that if i took a puff, i'd get the head spins and probably be sick...funny though, i entertained the thought of 'shrooming before the '03 allmans show. it was just to see if things were as cheerful as i remembered...didn't do it... now it's just beer and steak before shows...

Interesting thread. I'm in my mid-fifties, and the last time I did any 'cid was probably early '80s. Like a lot of you, I'll smoke a little herb from time to time, and it might be possible in the right situation, for me to maybe do some 'shrooms, but I doubt seriously I would every do any 'cid anymore. It was fun in it's day, but those days are long gone.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm a little offended by the "growing old" - "40 year old" connection. Of couse I've gotten a little crotchety since I hit my golden years. Perhaps a little smoke would give me the mellowing effect I need. But acid?...no thanks.

greetings:

Used to say " I'll never quit getting high" and now it's " don't wanna get high again"
I did have some good trips on L25, microdot, ect ect but the hassle came with blotter and it ended the interest. Moved on to shrooms, peyote, and mascaline. Not to mention Canebonol, reds, tuinol, ludes, angel dust, slammin cocaine and slammin china white . All this while still in jr high school. I have seen too much "crap"including death of good friends to just about every knd of dope imaginable, including weed. So you'll have a hard time convincing me that any of it is okay. Don't hate people who indulge just worry ad wonder when.

I had my time, although very limited on LSD and other mind altering substances, but I always felt like I wanted to come down after a couple hours. I enjoyed coke and speed much more, especially playing music for 8 hours at a time. I could drink forever with that crap in my system. I'd be a dead man if I ever tried that again, but I did have fun, I have to admit. I also admit I am alive by good fortune, not by being smart.

Oxcontin , Percocet , Valium , still weed and beer are how I get down nowadays . They make my less than perfect health an afterthought ( but make me a bit itchy ).
