For a long while now I've been a consistent pot smoker with a high knowledge and experience in this field. I've dabbled in a few other drugs, few uppers, few downers, but have never had the guts to try any sort of hallucinogen. My main reason for this is thinking that I may not be able to handle them.
Occasionaly when I smoke pot I get very anxious, usually every time, but sometimes more than others. Between all of my friends we could smoke the same amount but I would be the only one tripping balls and getting nervous. I've had a few unbearable situations like full blown panic attacks where I believe that I'll be perma fried forever and think that I'm going schizo, hearing shit, seeing shit out of the corner of my eye and breathing really heavy, needing to talk to someone sober or just lie down until my high mellowed out. I still enjoy the hell out of pot and I used to have great times with it, but it seems lately that the bad has outweighed the good and for this reason I've decided to quit smoking pot.
But there's a reason this is in the mind's eye forum. I want to know that if I can become so anxious and scared from only smoking marijuana, is there any hallucinogen that would be suitable for me, or that I can enjoy without the anxiety and paranoia that I get from pot? I sometimes try to think what acid or shrooms would be like when I'm high and I always think that I should never even try them because they would be way more intense than what I was already going through (remember I have pretty damn trippy weed highs, cev's and the works). Would acid be like smoking a whole bunch of pot or is it on a totally different spectrum?
If anybody with knowledge in this field could help me out here I'd really appreciate it. Does anybody else not enjoy pot but find psychedellics easier to bear?
