We've talked about this over facebook so forget me for repeating myself for the sake of the others here, haha.

So, when I was about 7 years old I was given acid and it was the scariest thing ever to happen to me.  Countless fears of mine spawned from that one day and something tells me even if i was in a proper mindset, the emotions and images that followed would still be just as terrifying.  I haven't had the urge to do it again and chances are I won't ever.

I live in a town full of potheads and pretty much everyone here tries some dope before high school is over (and on occasion, middle school...) but I was really never excited nor apalled to smoke any myself.  When my Beatles obsession peaked I was listening to Tomorrow Never Knows and I just kind of thought 'Yknow, I got to get in on that.'  So I got together with Jessica and my boyfriend and it didn't really do much.  A week later we did it again and I just laughed it up.

The way I see it, there are three kinds of pot smokers: Visitors, Regulars, and Stoners.

Visitors try it for the sake of experimentation, maybe go back to it every once in a while.  Just a part of growing up, right?

Regulars do it more frequently, use it as a means of relaxation and occasionally to forget their problems and just chill out.

Stoners have the world slowed down for them, pretty much smoke Eight Days A Week (lol, pun) and don't really focus their money into anything other than the weed.

I consider myself to be in-between regular and stoner.  The wonderful thing about cannabis is that unlike a lot of drugs it has no long-term effects (despite what they're telling us in school... it really helps to research these things legitimately...) and it's not a halluciogenic so there's no scary crap going on while you're doing it.  The world's nice and slow and typically, it's very pleasant.  And you can't get addicted, either.

Anyways, I basically decided to stick to what's natural.  I did shrooms.  And it was AWESOME.

 

And yeah, heavily influenced by my Beatles obsession, won't lie there.  But I tried not to be impulsive and just be all OMG THE BEATLES DID DRUGS SO SHOULD I~ I actually thought everything out.  No regrets, really.

AND, because I heard it is heavenly to smoke some green and watch Beatles movies at 4 a.m. in the morning.

Honestly, I've only ever experimented with "you-can-imitate-everyone-you-know" in order to better enjoy The Beatles.  That's not the same thing as saying I did it because they did it, but it definitely made the experience of watching Magical Mystery Tour and listening to both Sgt. Pepper and Revolver a lot more interesting.  If I ever do it again, it will be because I want to listen to one of those albums, or watch MMT or Yellow Submarine from a different point of view.

Not a bit like Cagney.

I think Jarvis Cocker once said something along the lines of "When
you're young everything is brand new and exciting. When you get older life becomes a lot greyer and more boring. Kids shouldn't bother with acid; they should wait until they're older."

I'd pretty much concur with that, that's the 34-year-old me speaking - when I was younger I certainly experimented, and yes, some of my interest was certainly sparked by The Beatles (sorry Mum, if you're reading). Most of it was positive, though I never got on with weed. Its popularity was always a bit of a mystery to me.

Anyone who intentionally gives a seven-year-old LSD should be prosecuted for child abuse. It's serious stuff, and not to be messed around with unless you're mentally ready for it. In the right hands, however, it can be hugely enjoyable and beneficial. Without wanting to sound like a washed-up hippy, it certainly opened my eyes to lots of new ways of seeing things. a-hard-days-night-john-3

I've never really found a major difference between mushrooms and acid. The effects on both seem to be pretty similar, and I don't subscribe to the notion that natural=good, synthetic=bad. Then again, I haven't really taken drugs since I was a teenager, so it's all quite some time ago. These days a decent bottle of wine makes me happy, and staying up all night chemically-assisted doesn't really appeal so much.

It was an absolutely terrifying day, really.  My cousin Ross dropped me off with his friends and we were all together, he was a police officer in-training (very, very amazing guy--he's in the air force now I think...) and some emergency came up, if I recall correctly, and he asked his friends to watch me.  They were typical frat boys, overweight and whatnot, the exact opposite of him.  But, y'know, they were one of his gang so he stuck up for them.  Anyways, he made the mistake of actually trusting them...

Basically they felt like messing with me so they gave me the can of chewing tobacco and told me it was candy.  I didn't necessarily believe them but I was daft enough to try anything and when I tasted it I literally threw the can across their garden.  That PISSED THEM OFF.

So they gave me paper and told me they were sorry for tricking me.  They told me if I tried it I could fly.

Everything that ensued was terrible.  They almost drowned me, drove me off a high ledge, and I remember them burying me in the backyard and while I was restrained there all my senses seemed to flare up.  I could feel every creature in the dirt crawling around me, smell every last piece of earth around me, I probably could've told you the number of dirt particles because of how insanely focused my eyes were, everything was its own.  It was what gave me my taphephobia and I still have it to this day.

There was one good moment, though... I remember sitting on the grass underneath a tree and just looking at the stars for what seemed like hours.  I felt like they were swirling around me, and the air was so clear and I was breathing in our galaxy.  I stayed there through the night unable to sleep until Ross came back the next morning.  I didn't tell him what I saw, but I cried and begged him to never take me there again.

I didn't realize until I was about 11 what I had been through.

Also I'm glad that this is all out in the open now because there have been times when I've resisted posting high rants on why Revolution 1 was their creative peak and other silly thoughts that have come into my head.
