Not only that but you may struggle a lot with integrating these experiences and want to escape the "petty things" in your life for this stuff (again, not healthy). 

You misunderstand what I'm saying. What I'm taking about is getting a taste for what higher states of consciousness would be like, and realizing that all of my shallow survival habits & priorities (material pleasures, popularity, etc.) are wastes of time. I am not saying I want to use psychedelics to escape, quite the opposite actually. I want to confront my lower self and create change.

Give me one good solid legit reason for doing it

Its hard to narrow it down to just one......

But if I had to It would expanding my consciousness and deepening my understanding of God, Reality, Consciousness, Fear  and Truth. I understand that I can do these things sober, and that's what I have been working on. Psychedelics are merely a tool to go deeper than I would be able to go normally sober. As people like @Carl-Richard have mentioned this could backfire and and I could deconstruct my mind too quickly, which is something I'm now very mindful of.

I would discourage you from using LSD if you are that young..

..however I had my first mystical experience (NDE) when I was 7 or 8 years old. There isn't much difference between having a NDE and using LSD. The issue is that it might have an impact on your development. In my case it probably made me dispassionate about education, career and relationships. There is a risk that you will skip stages of development. It might be hard to "go back" and learn lessons that you missed because you don't care anymore. It's up to you.

Trip sitter is not necessary if you do not have any guilt attached to using psychedelics. Also remember, LSD trip lasts very long and it probably will be overwhelming. You have to be sure that you are not going to be bothered by anyone.

@Insightful27 I'm 19. I have tripped and such since about 15. I'm currently slightly addicted to weed, where I have had certain awakenings using weed, which is one of my excuses fueling the addiction. I won't label this behavior "right" or "wrong" thus, because in the end, awareness is curative.

 

Use your awareness too young man, use your intuition here. By having even asked for other's advice, you are opening up for other's authority to affect you, but althewhile, stay connected to your intuition. If it feels right to try, because you have actually sit down and pondered your situation, and considered the potential risks, and it still feel right, then go! That is your intuition knowing everything will be fine.

So, the resource I will give you which you might want to consider to fuel your intuition is: If you are in a situation where your survival patterns hinges upon suppression of emotions, such as guilt, anger, grief, or if you eat a toxic diet, have an improper posture: All of these things will affect how the psychedelic will open your mind. See the psychedelic as a blood pressure; the more the pressure, the more blood to all veins, then the more clogs will be *hit upon* with more awareness.

The danger is for you to suddenly be aware of many of your deceptions. So, being prepared to let go is a wonderful tool for any trip.

Consider all your tools and potential risks, see if tripping feels right. Also, tripping means of course what dose you take, and you can of course start small.

I managed to get some LSD and DMT with the intent of using it to expand my consciousness and awareness to places its never been before. I'm taking as many precautions as I can (reagent testing kits, tons of research, etc.). I would prefer to have a trip sitter, the only issue is that all of my friends are extremely close-minded and have no interest in even the shallowest parts of self-improvement. They also have never done psychedelics or anything like them so they would probably be shitty trip sitters anyway. I've heard everything from "its better to do them alone" to "you must have a sitter 100% of the time". Should I wait until I find the right person or would I be able to manage it by myself?

Bro dont listen to anyone. Do what feels right for you. Everyone that advise you to not do it are just people with illuiosary paradigms. From my experience LSD and DMT will expand and strenghten your mind but only with the right intention and setting.

@Insightful27 Just wondering though, at what times during the week/day do you plan on tripping? Don't you have school and parents and stuff that get in the way?

@Insightful27 I wouldn't want to be with another person while I'm tripping, however it would be best to have someone to help you in case of panic. First time is so shocking that you might have a stupid idea to call your parents or something like that.

I also recommend rectal administration. Trip is going to be smoother, more intense but less scary because of much shorter duration.

The bottom line is 99.9% of 16 year olds lack the sufficient foundation for a trip. End of story.

99% of 30-year-olds don't have it either. on the contrary, they have been accumulating shit of all kinds and the chances of having a traumatic trip are greater. and if it is someone of 50, the risk multiplies. as he says, building a life based on truth and not survival is better than building a life based on survival and then deconstructing it. What can undermine your motivation to survive? I do not believe it.

Yeah that's exactly what I'm thinking. No point in building my life around something that I'm going to have to deconstruct later.

Only if you value truth more than life.


To balance beauty and complexity so perfectly is a divine mystery.

You want to trip, many people have offered good reasons not to do so at your age, and still you carry on by saying how everyone is wrong. Why even make this topic if you just wanted confirmation bias?

Reread my original post. I never asked for advice on whether or not I should trip, I asked about a trip sitter. However, I do apricate all the perspectives that people have shared, and many of them have opened my eyes and changed my mind. But at the end of the day I'm going to make the decision on what I think is best, not what strangers on an online forum think is best.

I've been practicing lucid dreaming for most of the past three years. And yeah it's difficult to gain any proficiency. The most sucess I've had is with listening to a binaural track created by the Monroe Institute(while sleeping). I've mostly avoided using it again because of noise but I've recently returned to using it.

@Insightful27  I understand what you are saying my friend, but you are biased. I made a similar mistakes, I was preaching about these things I heard about from others without ever trying them, talking about brain plasticity and all that. Brain plasticity is not what you experience, it is like a very abstract thing you might not be able to imagine. And if your brain is already very malleable, which it is at your age, psychs might make it too malleable you know, possibly unable to focus or even psychotic. (imagine extreme sexual OCD, questioning everything, being unable to execute on goals, schizophrenia etc.) You might experience really cool stuff, but it is wiser to wait a bit. I understand you will not wait 5 year but wait at least like 2 or 3, is that possible sir?

Your body and mind are already perfect, you do not need substances to enhance your human capabilities. They are already so amazing. I have personally had higher states of consciousness sober than on psychedelics, some people are like that too.

So basically it's exactly what I stated. You are 16 and not nearly as mature as you might imagine. Be careful with that brain/developing conceptual world of yours. I've known plenty of people who tripped in their teens seeking the Absolute and wound up spending decades haunted by it. Caveat emptor, but as you said, you're going to do whatever you want. Your brain, your choice.
