Anonymous said: Should I take acid before going to the club?
The answer to this question relies very little on any scientific data and more on the weighing of many different factors of yourself which I shall attempt to order in most important to least.
If you have never consumed LSD before I can’t say I would recommend using a club as the environment for your first experience however one must factor in just what type of club this is (more below). The various trips I have taken in various club environments have all went well mainly due to me always knowing prior to going out that I would have no issues walking or cabbing home if I began to feel uneasy in the club situation. I have seen many people overwhelmed when tripping in certain club environments mostly due to their lack of prior experience in knowing just how their minds function / the level of control they have when surrounded by people in a loud place on LSD. So if you have past experiences with LSD and a fairly good idea of what makes you uneasy when tripping in those experiences, you can use that to judge how you may do whilst clubbing on LSD. Also always make sure you are not stuck somewhere you may not want to be (plan to be able to walk or cab or have a sober friend drive you elsewhere incase of discomfort).
LSD, unless in liquid form, can be hard to properly dose in certainty. I rarely do a heavy dose in a club type environment and if I do it is even less likely I did it intentionally. One of the worst combinations, even for an experienced tripper is to much LSD in a overwhelmingly stimulating environment. It makes interacting much harder as well as maintaing a level head, especially in a hot cramped venue. So if you do end up taking LSD before clubbing, try your best to know approximately the level of trip you are going to have off the amount you consume and remember that setting can make the effects much more intense depending on how one feels in it. For example. 150ug at home one month, and the same 150ug at a club the next can and will hit you in a different way and depending on past experiences can make for a bad time.
Type of club / event
Many people have many definitions for what they consider to be a club. Whether it be collar popping bar star clubs, more rave type clubs, metal clubs or lounges the type of club you are thinking about taking LSD in plays a factor. Personally I have always felt most at ease in a rave type of environment due to the higher frequency of people in attendance who are accepting of or on non alcohol based drugs themselves. This factor however relies heavily on what type of place you are most comfortable in. I find familiarity with the club helps as well as new environments can be hard to navigate in the midst of a trip. Also unless you feel comfortable solo tripping, make sure you know a few people there who you can hang out with as to not feel alienated on the trip.
So to sum up, if it is going to be your first experience, I would not recommend a club type environment or anywhere that is exclusively indoors. If you have dosed before, then just make sure you feel good about doing it in the environment you pick, and always have a way to change your setting if needed safely. Also beware of heavy doses in crowded environments.
