Magic Mushrooms And Drug Abuse
Psilocybin mushrooms are a popular drug right now. The drug alters your mind and is considered in the hallucinogens class. The effect is similar to LSD, in that the user experiences visual and auditory effects, hallucinations, and feelings of joy or sometimes deep fear. When the person has a good trip, the drug can be almost magical. Unfortunately, the user has a high probability of having a bad trip, that can leave the user in psychological distress.
The drug itself is not addictive or deadly, but the mental effects can cause the user to walk out in traffic, jump off buildings thinking they can fly, or have feelings of invincibility that lead to their death, like thinking they can walk on water or fly.
Psilocybin mushrooms are also called shrooms, and magic mushrooms. They are popular with celebrities and musicians for their psychedelic effects. Sometimes people die because they try to pick their own mushrooms and get confused and eat poisonous mushrooms. While psilocybin is not addictive, a person can still abuse the drug and it can have negative effects on the person’s mental health.
Some users have reported hallucinations that do not go away and abusing the drug can result in anxiety. Drug abuse is possible with any drug and shrooms are no exception. If you know someone who is struggling with shrooms, see if you can get them to speak with a therapist about what they are going through. You might be able to get them off the drug this way.
Since psilocybin isn’t addictive, some people just lose interest and stop taking the drug. If this isn’t possible for you, get professional help. You will feel better once you stop taking the drug and get back to your normal life. Don’t let addiction stop you in its tracks.
