I just thought it might interest some of you to know, that a friend of mine (not that close a friend, but we share some of the same group of friends, and I saw him quite a lot, went to some parties with him etc), has recently been comitted to a mental institution. They have the power to hold him for up to 6 months now - I don't know the exact circumstances regarding the situation, only that he woke up in the hospitalwith absolutely no idea how he got there. He has been abusing psychedelics (acid, DMT, mushrooms, and all manner of lesser psychedelics, amongst other non-psychedelic drugs such as ecstasy, speed, ketamine, etc). Over the past year or so my friends and I watched him deterioriate from being "a bit silly", through to the point where he was becoming truly mentally disturbed. He had voices in his head, he would fuck on about how everything and every one was connected to or controlled by The Masons, and all sorts of other bollocks. He caused a lot of trouble with his friends, and upset a lot of people with his behaviour. Despite all this, and countless "incidents", he continued to abuse psychedelics. Most dealers who knew him reached the point where they refused to sell him any. I hope this post will serve as a warning to those who take the notion of psychosis as a result of psychedelics lightly. One trip won't do this to anyone, nor will occasional, or even regular experimentation, providing you stay sensible. Just learn to read the signs, and if you think your use of psychedelics is leading your mind in a direction that could possibly be detrimental to your health, please, step back and seriously reconsider your usage.
