In fact, the trips tended to be good, with patients and their families reporting improvements up to six months after their single-dose experience with the substance. I tried "shrooms" once. Two things stood out in my mind. First was how everybody seemed like a comedian and I felt like I was understanding things I had never figured out. Secondly, was how high my alcohol tolerance was. It felt like I could drink unlimited ammouns of alcohol wihtout getting drunk. I'm at the point now where I would probably try them again if I had the opportunity, only if I could have a day of fun and relief.
