I understand people have different reasons for microdosing, where I live psilocybin has been decriminalized so its no longer a bad thing. I alternate between psilocybin and LSD microdoses for various reasons. Psilocybin helps me deal with chronic pain along with kratom, and makes it much less noticable. It also improves my mood and outlook, and gives me a bit more enthusiasm.
I’m just concerned that if other people dont use it or need it, is it strange or unusual to need it? One way to view it could be a lifestyle choice, such as meditating or eating vegan food. Macro doses are of course way more euphoric – but they have their separate use cases. What I’m trying to say is can you go through you day-to-day commuting, working, paying bills, socializing or can it distract you in someway? Can it create a sense of apathy or perhaps not reacting to things in an appropriate way. Like you neglect important duties while maybe under the influence of a dose. I find that some things bother me less, but it gives an empathetic effect and sometimes people are not receptive. Case in point, you are at a bar or some social function, is microdosing helpful in this regard. Sometimes its like being on planet Mars where everyone is drinking and you’re tripping – for the most part you act normal but you sort of have a mild headspace. There are probably situations where its not wise to do it, there’s a lot of BS to deal with life and it can make it more tolerable. One positive is I find myself less self-conscious and able to deal with rejection better and be more at ease. But without it wondering if I would react differently – I mean if everyone was microdosing then people would sync and there would be some kumbaya moment – but unfortunately everyone acts on a different plane. Am I expecting too much with MDing – how do you get the most out of it, obviously you have to put in the work and make changes.. by itself it wont do it all for you
