LSD and mushrooms are more like a "mental dice roll" where a reset is one of the possible outcomes.

Another outcome is that you get transported to nightmarish hellscape of a hallucination for what will seem like eternity and you will be lucky to stagger out with your sanity, as all the worst things in your subconscious come to life and attack you.

Approach LSD and similar drugs with extreme caution.

You can have profound changes just by microdosing. No risk of those kinds of experiences, but with the same benefits.

According to Stanislov Grof, the world's expert in LSD psychotherapy, the hellish trips were the most healing, long term.

I would say treat them with respect and caution. Yes, the outcome is not guaranteed. Nothing on this earth is truly guaranteed. Learn how to proceed, Set & setting. Be amongst close friends in a safe, quiet place. (Alone is OK if you know well what you are doing.) Accept whatever visions/experiences come, without fear.

The benefits are amazing. @GiantComet2016 @theoldones

Seriously though, most lsd now days are just research chemicals. Seriously be careful if you get some “lsd”

Good idea to have a benzo on hand. One small pill can help you exit the trip completely, saving you from that if it starts to go bad.

can work as a "mental reset"

can also fuck up your mental state more without proper direction / planning.

LSD, I haven't seen much evidence for. I can't speak to that. But, psilocybin certainly has been recorded to "reset" people with depression.

As for LSD, and what I know about it, it's a bit intimidating. I understand the utility in such a drug, but after understanding its recorded utility, it's hard to be very confident about it. My advice, for what it's worth: proceed with caution.

Read up and learn how to mindfully meditate to clear your mind. Detach from anything that will influence your thoughts, which usually means everything you love. Do that for a a bit, or for as long as you want. Spend time with yourself. Get to know yourself. Always look at the grass greener on your side of the fence because it always is, even if you don't believe it is.

Exercise.

By accomplishing even an easy physical feat, your mind realizes it controls something, with a positive outcome. Pushing yourself physically reduces stress, and provides mental stability.

Came here to say that. Exercise is proven to help depression. It's hard to be depressed after an hour of pushing heavy weights around.

I read up on stoicism. Pretty much helped me understand that any external factors that I could not control could be disregarded.

Yes, this helps a lot.

After familiarising one's self with the general idea of the philosophy, I'd start with "Meditations", by Marcus Aurelius... just need to push through the first pages of "tributes". The way it is written, it is easy to remember the lessons.

There's v/stoicism, but the owner can be lazy with updating with content.

Go for a walk in nature. Build a fire outside and roast a hotdog over it. Read a Psalm. Donate $5-10 to your favorite charity/political group. Do something to make someone else happy. Go fishing.

I had a lot of really bad, fucked up shit happen to me one right after the other last year; medical issues, loss of job, family member deaths, etc. It was a major life upheaval and I really thought I wasn't going to come out of it. I started planning for my death and things got really grim.

I'm not completely out of it yet but I can tell you the date I turned the corner. That happened because of two things-

I realized that even when things were bad they were still better than other times in the past. While all the bad shit was going on, even when i was planning my own death, I was making moves to make things better. Now I'm much better off than before everything went to shit.

And I stopped thinking about the bad shit. Whenever I had a bad thought I'd put it out of my mind immediately. I know that's a lame, Oprahesque thing to do, but I had to. I was on a constant cycle of depression that I was putting myself through. I would dwell on shit until I didn't get joy out of anything. It sounds like you're closing your eyes to the problem, but if you can't figure anything out don't dwell on it.

That's not what I meant. One thing all this shit taught me is that people don't give a fuck. When things were going well for me I was really considerate- I volunteered, I was green, I was compassionate. Now? Fuck all that shit

I still help people if I can and I'm very good to people but I know none of that shit matters. A lot of my problems came because I was surrouded by people that, at first glance were very compassionate, tolerant, green, empathetic people. The truth was they were all selfish motherfuckers that used that as a cover. Because they checked all the right boxes they believed they could be completely self serving.

I still care about people but if I don't know them it's not my problem. I give zero shits for people that aren't in my life because why would strangers care about me?

What I meant was, despite all the issues I had, I still had it better than I had in the past. I don't compare myself to other people because most people only show what they want people to see. You have no idea how miserable and shitty they really are until you get to know them. I'm better off now but even when things were really bad a few months ago I was better off than I had been in the past and I got out of that

Is your daily routine stable? That was a big deal for me. "Is your room clean" - Peterson. That and keeping my car clean has a huge impact on my thoughts.

What do you mean intense exercise? Can you lift weights?

I actually have something i found useful there

'If you wanna clean your life start with your kitchen' - i_scream_trucks

Its not wrong either. Start off cleaning your kitchen next thing you know its hours later and the whole house is clean.

Tho in my case it usually takes a good several hours of being stoned and my house is generally clean anyway... cant bring anyone home if youre embarassed at the state of your fulthy house just as you cant let anyone into your head space if youre embarassed about its state. So do something about it.

Go to the nearest woods or wild place. Don't try not to think, try instead to listen. Lots of folk try and talk to the Gods, or make requests of Them; but when does a person take a moment and listen to what They say in whispers?

Listen, with a calm mind and an open heart, and They will teach you what you need to know.
