I tried microdosing lsd for a while and it felt pretty great. Helped me keep an edge, but I'm also a chronic wine drinker/weed smoker so maybe that's not a great base to start from.

It took the edge off my drinking and smoking enough to let me function professionally and excel vs my peers as an analyst. Probably exacerbated the root problem though so, pros and cons.

I micro-dosed shrooms a few times. I experimented with it as therapy. During those times I realized that I didn't like how it made me feel and didn't help me improve in any area.

I microdosed LSD a bit during college wasn't a mind blowing experience or anything I also did a full dose which also wasn't mind blowing, drugs are so mainstream even LSD, there is an aesthetic to drugs but there isn't an aesthetic to using drugs, you aren't enlightened because you microdose LSD bro, it's more interesting of an aesthetic to be straight edge not touching anything no drugs no alcohol that's an aesthetic that I can get behind, the smoking and drinking is an aesthetic that was sold to you by pop culture and the LSD was sold to you by counter culture, who sold me straight edge don't touch anything, no one did, it's a more interesting aesthetic, maybe your mind will be more blown after one month of putting nothing harmful in your body than it would be after microdosing LSD for a week or two and having some 'mind blowing' realizations

noone ever microdoses lsd to get mind blown... and if didn't get your mind blown on a full dose you probably didn't take enough. also your post is nearly incomprehensible, the last 3/4 of the single running sentence is just gibberish

let me try and repeat more clearly. smoking and drinking is clearly mainstream, psychedelics are also mainstream because they are what is supposed to be counter culture, maybe you will be the most mind blown if you don't put anything harmful in your body

Not for work, but when I was in Amsterdam I'd buy the psilocybin truffles they sell legally and eat a few before going about my day. Never exactly a "trip" but kind of introduced a sense of wonder into the day... colors seemed brighter, sounds and smells were more apparent, and I generally felt more peaceful.

Have a friend who swore that psychedelics cured his depression... he said that it enabled him to appreciate simple pleasures and was the first time he ever appreciated truly felt content with his life (macrodose, not micro lol)
