  1. They're both amazing molecules! LSD is the promised one, the King of the psychedelics, a gift from god some would say. It plays a bit more with ego, paradoxically more ego dissolving as well as ego pumping. It is more self-important than AL-LAD which has it's pros and cons. It's hard not to take it seriously, even when it has you ROFLing. If you want to go balls deep and take a very large dose of a psychedelic, LSD is a better choice than AL-LAD because it seems to scale better as you get into the very high dose range. LSD has a huge track record and is one of the most studied psychoactives out there, as well as being one of the most explored "in the wild". I'd say LSD, by default, has a tendency to go deeper than AL-LAD. AL-LAD is more light-hearted, colourful, silly, shorter lasting. It is less potent than LSD so it's normal dosage range tends to be higher. AL-LAD is still quasi-legal in many parts of the world. It seems to get more confusing than LSD as you ramp the dosage up. It has much less history than LSD, so to be honest I think the world is still figuring this one out to some extent - although it's close enough to it's cousin LSD that it's not completely terra incognita. It's very sensual, bubbly, creative and humorous. It's more innocent and carefree than LSD. LSD seems like the default for self-enquiry, growth and so on, but AL-LAD has it's definite advantages as it comes with a lot less weight to it - and is "sort-of" legal in much of the world. Leo has talked a lot about AL-LAD and I agree that it's a fantastic tool for self-inquiry. LSD can be like the serious stern teacher, or the wise cracking zen master pointing you straight towards your highest calling. LSD might make you question everything and rock your world to the core. AL-LAD is more like that cute crush grabbing you by the hand and showing you the delicious marvels of existence. There are a lot of other very interesting lysergamides out there right now too, including MIPLA, ETH-LAD and the LSD prodrugs like 1a-LSD, 1p-LSD and 1b-LSD.
  2. That sounds good to me - long enough that your system is pharmacologically clear, but still in the afterglow period. I think you could bump them even closer together without any fear of bad interaction issues, like the next day or even the same day once the ayahuasca has mostly worn off. You'll still have to surrender!! But it should be easier to surrender when you've prepared like that, feeling good and cleansed and all that. What kinds of doses and ROA have you tried with 5-MeO-DMT?
  3. I've never taken ayahuasca or straight DMT, so I can only talk about it from a theoretical standpoint. The MAOI in the ayahuasca brew would intensify and prolong the 5-MeO-DMT, because the MAOI would slow the rate at which your body breaks down the 5-MeO-DMT. Also the DMT + 5-MeO-DMT would add to each other, making it a much stronger experience. Some traditional ayahuasca brews use 5-MeO-DMT containing plants in addition to the normal DMT and MAOI ones, and sometimes there are even sketchy things like deleriants in them. I would imagine the concentration of 5-MeO-DMT in these brews is pretty low. This is definitely really far out stuff to experiment with, and I definitely wouldn't recommend it. Even straight up ayahuasca seems a bit risky to me, which is part of the reason why I've never tried it. Before I ever tried 5-MeO-DMT I thought it would be good to take it in combo with another psychedelic like LSD or something, as a sort of launch pad. But now that I've done it quite a few times, I have no compulsion to combo it. I'd say just try it by itself first before bothering much with combo imaginings. There's nothing like it, and it doesn't need anything else added, I find.
  4. You're not married 1. Yes definitely. 2. You could, it's not like you're married to your GF. You should still break up with your GF either way because you're not going to be happy settling for a backup plan, and neither will she. 3. Don't wait. She told you she's looking for another guy, her communication is clear. 4. If she rejects you and your friendship is real, it shouldn't break your friendship. It might even make it stronger, what could be more endearing? It can be awkward to have the cards on the table, but only if you make it so.
  5. I think most seasoned trippers would recommend magic mushrooms over DMT for your first trip - it's a lot simpler eating some dried mushrooms than trying to vapourize DMT, and the trip will last longer and give you time to adjust to the altitude and take a look around - unlike the rocket blast into outer orbit and rapid return to earth with DMT. Mushrooms are a great choice for a first trip; perfect duration, classic effects, tends to be very safe to source. Try to enjoy some time in the outdoors, as well as have a safe retreat like your home. Don't eat a lot going into it, but have some fruit or other light snacks available for during the trip. Some mint or ginger tea can be divine. Try to poop beforehand. Make sure you're very comfortably dressed and in good condition mentally and physically leading up to the trip. Enjoy!
  6. Plastic, other synthetic polymers, fire retardants. Not food at all, but plastics are everywhere in our food environment - packaging, containers, utensils. They tend to be hormone disruptors, BPA was just the tip of the iceberg, most polymers aren't well studied for safety. The only reason BPA got a bad rap is because people actually took a close look at it. Now we've switched to other plastics that are probably just as bad, but less studied.. It's almost impossible to completely avoid plastic these days, but you can at least avoid heating things up in plastic containers, plastic utensils, plastic water bottles. I reckon this is a major issue that we'll look back at in a few decades and be surprised how blind we were to it. It will look crazy, like how thinking about smoking in airplanes and doctors offices seems crazy to us now.
  7. @Farnaby I had the exact question for my meditation teacher I'll relay his answer, intertwined with my own understanding and interpretation. Both are equally important, so it's good to focus on one, and then the other when you are practicing. Ultimately you'll bring them together and walk this balancing act of doing one and then the other almost simultaneously - focus vs. openness, keeping perfect balance in the center. You can't have authentic deep experience when your mental strongman is standing rigid over your thoughts, forcing you into focusing on your breath. On the other hand when you let your mind drift, you end up in monkey mind ville, or mushy dreamy land and start falling asleep, way off course from being present in your meditation. Ideally you want to be completely still, effortlessly in the now. As you progress you'll get better at using the tools of focus and letting go to arrive in that stillness with lighter and lighter applications of these tools. My teacher's recommendation was to focus on one aspect in one sit, and then on the other in the next sit. Or play it by ear and work on what you think needs the most sharpening. I've heard people say it's better to focus on the breath by default, as strengthening this ability to concentrate usually requires the most work - vs. letting go, which is by nature not something you "work" to do. Vipassana meditation really seems to emphasize the focus/concentration side, and a lot of people seem to gravitate to that path. It's kind of a yin/yang thing, appropriate considering Leo's most recent video.
  8. 1P-LSD is functionally equivalent to traditional LSD, you can treat them as the same thing, even though the molecule is slightly different. Some people claim 1P-LSD has a slightly smoother onset, but others claim it's all in your head. Regardless, it's a 6 of one half dozen of the other kind of thing. 1P-LSD converts into LSD at some point after you've consumed it, the debate is over how readily this happens. If it's true that it does happen slowly, this would smooth over and slow down the onset. 1P-LSD is a prodrug of LSD. The dissolved thing (solution) should be conserved cold and away from sunlight especially. But the pellet should be kept somewhere cool and dark as well. Just keep the pellet away from a heat source and the sun, so some place like a cupboard or drawer will be fine. If you want to store it for years to come, you could think about storing it in a perfectly dry sealed container in the freezer. I posted a tek for this I can try to dig up if you're interested. If you can't find a few mL of booze, I'd get some distilled water from the drugstore and use that as your solution. I'm not sure what the medium of the pellet is, but it could be a sugar which would go moldy at room temperature once it's dissolved, so I would store the remaining solution in the freezer. @DrMobius might be right. 100ug is kind of the standard intro dose. OTOH there's no harm in starting lower, you can always take more next time. There is something special about loosing your acid virginity, but the second, third and 100th trip are all really special too
  9. 150ug (if it really is that much) is a pretty solid trip. 100ug has become the standard trip dose, and 200ug is the standard "strong" LSD trip. So 150ug should be right in the middle of the two. As you know, everyone reacts differently to psychedelics, they can be stronger or weaker depending on the person, and even from one trip to the next. If you'd like to test the waters carefully, you could try a 50ug dose to start. If you're feeling confident you could start at 100ug. If you're ready for anything and have really good prep, mindset and setting 150ug wouldn't be crazy at all. 5-10ug is microdose range 20-50ug is what I think of as the "museum dose" range - perfect for being able to be out in public, strong enhancement, but hopefully not having to hold a conversation with conservative uncle Randy. 50-100ug getting into proper trip range 100-200ug is solid trip range 200-400ug is heavy trip range 400ug+ is unknown territory for me. You can split a pellet by dissolving it in a solvent like a tiny amount of vodka, and then drinking half of it. Don't dissolve it in chlorinated tap water as the chlorine will degrade the LSD. Don't store it in the sunlight as UV does the same. Keep it cold if possible. LSD <3

  11. Maybe you're right. Let this possibility motivate you to be better. Confidence isn't something you fake, it's something you earn.
  12. Oh wow I didn't realize this was such an ancient post. I wonder too @Aeris
  13. Good job quitting weed! Luckily it was just weed that you got into and not something harder and more addictive like opioids, meth or alcohol. Any of those drugs would have been much more destructive and difficult to quit. You're already most of the way there, you've done all of the really hard decisions and actions already. Stick with it and keep making the good decisions one day at a time. You're actually doing really well, you're sober, you've somehow come out of your 20s with a graduate (or undergrad?) degree, which is a lot more than many people have to show for their 20s. It's impressive that you woke up and made the changes you needed to. That is very inspiring, for real. Don't worry about your wasted time; that's all in the past now, and you've learned from your mistakes. You have TONS of time in your future. You've only spent about a decade of your adult life, you probably have at least 5 or 6 more decades. A very long life ahead of you, especially if you continue to live a healthier and healthier lifestyle. Just keep taking positive steps forward every day. Good job on waking up to your reality, and deciding to do something about it. You can be thankful that you live in a society that cares for you and is supporting you with social security. Try to use this to bootstrap your life, find any shit job to get yourself started again in life, you will be more proud of your money and yourself. Work your way up. You're actually doing awesome right now. Keep going!
  14. Maybe you need to take a proper full dose Out of curiosity are you microdosing LSD or what? What's your schedule and dose range?
  15. Just wanted to put in a plug for a book I'm reading right now that's very relevant for actualized.org people: Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin - Specifically check out the 2018 revised version, it's very relevant to today's world. It's all about financial independence, aligning your money life with your values, and deprogramming from cultural norms around earning and spending. I'm gaining a lot by reading this book, and I reckon a lot of other people on this forum will too. Cheers!
