I have heard many times that taking shrooms is a life-altering experience, changing the way you think and appreciate the world around you. Supposedly it can be a very good thing that has given people a renewed interest in school and life in general, prompting them to lose wieght, etc.; I am not opposed to this at all, but I have also heard that it can fuck up the way you think for a long time and shake you up pretty bad. I sure as hell don't wanna get messed up in a bad way, I just want an enlightening or at least very entertaining, surreal break from reality. Also, another question: Since shrooms can completely slow down your perception of time, has anyone ever had a normal length trip that feels like it lasted for months (maybe even years)? This may seem like a stupid question, but just imagine getting trapped, or liberated (if you want to look at it that way) in a long lasting alternate reality, and then being dropped back into your previous everyday life. You can only imagine how that could mess you up for quite a while. I am just wondering because I have not taken shrooms yet but I plan on it possibly today.
