How to Stop a Bad Acid Trip

Sharing buttons:

what is up ladies and gentlemen boys and

girls it's your boy Goblin and today I'm

coming in with a classic video talking

about how to help stop a bad trip hope

you guys enjoy drop a like if you do and

without further ado let's get right into

it so how to stop a bad trip now I'm

gonna break this video up into two parts

hold on I have to cough excuse me Jesus

Christ but anyways I'm gonna break this

up into two parts I'm gonna do a bit of

it where I'm talking about if you have a

trip sitter with you or just a friend

with you in general who's you know

either a sober or be not having a bad

trip or be if you're tripping alone and

having a bad trip because there are two

very different things and I want to make

it clear that this video is just my

experience this isn't like

scientifically proven facts but it's

it's stuff you could try that maybe

could help you out at some point if

you're tweaking out and having a bad

trip one day so either way let's dive

into it so the first part is I'm gonna

do with the trip sitter and you know the

the way to kind of stop a bad trip if

you have a trip sitter really falls more

upon the trip sitter than you but there

are some things that the person having

the bad trip can kinda do you know one

of one of the things that I've found

really helps is I remember I was with a

friend and it was her first time

tripping and she was freaking out you

know she was talking about how she was

seeing like some you know just some

crazy [ __ ] some scary stuff and all she

really wanted to do was talk you know

talking took her mind off of it and

here's the thing when you're tripping

your mind is very how do I put it very

like you you almost have tunnel vision

when you're tripping you know like you

will focus in very very hard on one

thing like a select certain group of

things or thing that is happening and

you'll really really Zone in on that and

then your thoughts will just spiral

based off of that you know but you'll

really focus on you know one thing more

than you normally would like

multitasking thinking about multiple

things at once doesn't really happen

very much when you're tripping you know


really really zoned in on one thing and

with her she was really really zoned in

on what she was seeing she was seeing

how like scary stuff you know she was

seeing like some some like she called it

like a demon or some [ __ ] I don't know

dude it was [ __ ] up but either way the

way that you know me and my friends kind

of dealt with that when we were there

cuz we were all tripping - except for

one of us you know he was just kind of

chillin and smoking he didn't want a

trip was we just talked to her you know

conversate with whoever's having a bad

trip and just continue the conversation

it doesn't have to be a good

conversation but you have to remember

that they're tripping so they're not

gonna not gonna think like oh this

conversations boring I don't want to

talk anymore you know like you can ask

very basic questions and say really

basic things and still like get a very

you know a very very effective and like

interesting conversation for that person

because you know when when they're

tripping if they're conversating with

you if they're talking or answering a

question they're gonna be really focused

on you and really focused on answering

the question for the most part instead

of you know whatever is you know maybe

the bad thing about their trip you know

if you can get them to pay attention to

you and you know ask them a lot of

questions be like how's your day going

how is school going how is work going

how is a whatever going what have you

been up to what are your plans today

already plans tomorrow [ __ ] like that

just like general [ __ ] small talk or

whatever you want to talk about try to

prolong the conversation as much as you

can because if they're talking to a

friend if they're talking to someone

they like you know how your brain kind

of works on acid when you're with people

you like you know you're you're much

more comfortable you know you're you're

really I almost want to say like

vulnerable in your mind on acid you know

you're almost like you're almost very

like nervous like you you're you're very

anxious and like nervous around people

who you're not comfortable with so if

you have a trip sitter or a friend there

who you know you've been friends with

you know them well you know just

conversating with them will help you

feel a lot better because you just feel

comfortable you know you just feel

better about it and you know the the I

always like to say like your mind on

acid is so like innocent so like very

very basic things can help you like feel

better or make you feel worse like it's

a very very like thin ice

you're on very thin line so you know

I'll always conversate with them I've

heard I mean I don't know if there's a

common thing but I've heard like someone

told me one time that if you're having a

bad trip you should smoke don't do that

that's bad advice because for those of

you guys who have done acid before or

maybe you have and haven't smoked on it

maybe you don't know weed enhances your

trip a lot you know weed enhances your

trip a lot it really does you know it

really does it it gets you out there it

gets you going you know it's it's not

good for when you're having a bad trip

it's just gonna intensify it you know if

you're having a good trip go for it if

you're having a bad trip [ __ ] no don't

do that [ __ ] the the next thing that you

can do is when someone's having a bad

trip try to take them out of the like

environment that they're in you know if

they're like for example if let's say

they're at a friend's house and they're

having a really bad trip there and you

know maybe it's something about the

environment or like they're seeing

something around them take them to

somewhere else you know take them to a

different place if they're comfortable

with it of course if they're like

tweaking out about it then no don't do

this but try to take them to a different

a different spot in the house or like

just a different place entirely you know

like if you're at one friend's house

maybe take them back to your house you

know or take them to a friend's house

you know because what I found is when

I'm tripping and when I'm like having a

bad trip

whenever I kind of like relocate it's

almost like starting fresh you know and

I whenever like I you know go for my

friend's house back home to my house

it's almost like I don't even remember

what I was thinking about when I was

tripping at my friend's house you know

I'm like I'm starting fresh almost cuz

you're having very like I don't know how

to say it like very your your your

experience when you're tripping good or

bad is based very very heavily around

your environment you know it really is

it's it's all about who you're with and

where you're at you know it truly is and

that's a huge component of it so if you

if you just switch it up you know if

you're having a bad trip at a friend's

house go to a different friend's house

and you know go to your house you know

go somewhere that you're gonna be

comfortable now there are some cases

where you know people are just tripping

balls and they're having way too bad of

a trip and just freaking the [ __ ] out

you know like for example because

there's scene videos those people who

think they're like

dying and they're like laying on the

ground just tweaking the [ __ ] out and

like literally like screaming at you I'm

talking like really really bad trip in

that instance there's only really a few

things you can do and one of these

things I never normally encourage but in

this instance I'd give it a pass you

know one thing is if you really have no

options and you need to just get rid of

a bad trip benzos will make you come

down you know and I don't I don't

encourage benzos I don't encourage

I [ __ ] hate Xan so those guys who may

be new to the channel maybe you found me

through this video

I [ __ ] hate xanax normally as a

recreational drug it sucks dick and I

don't encourage it but for this purpose

xanax can be really really helpful you

know personally when I'm tripping I used

to always keep some with me just in case

you know and I I got pretty experienced

with psychedelics I tripped a lot I had

a lot of great times I had some okay

times I never had a truly like terrible

entire trip I had stints of trips that

were bad but never entirely bad trips

and one thing I would always keep with

me is Zan's because whenever someone's

tripping they can really help they can

help them calm down you know if the

worst comes the worst and you just need

to get them off it that can help really

really significantly you know really can

but you know also at that point another

thing you can do is you you have to

remember to you know be really patient

and kind of kind of talk to them really

calmly you know talk to them like you're

like your dog almost like your puppy you

know not not in that like shitty little

voice but like you know how like

whenever you're talking to like your dog

you're just like you're nice you know

you're like not talking as fashioned it

is nice and slow and like patient and

you know your voice is like softer and

all I [ __ ] do that with someone having a

bad trip you know talk to them really

nicely ask them if they you know if they

need anything you know if you could do

anything for them you know help them out

grab them a cup of water or some [ __ ]

you know just kind of like just kind of

be I don't know how to put it just kind

of like be there be there form at that

point I guess because the thing is like

very very small gestures will make

someone feel really really good on acid

so for example you know when I'm

tripping and like let's say I'm at a

restaurant for example I've been at


Wild Wings been timing I was tripping

and know though the waitress came over

and she was like have a great night and

I was like oh she's cool as [ __ ] I was

like ah bad dude that's that's nice at

bat you know like it's that kind of

thing is just very very small gestures

go a very very long way when someone's

tripping you know even when they're

having a bad trip so if you're able to

you know comfort them make them feel

better then you know it could be okay

and that's if they're comfortable with

having a person near them you know

sometimes they don't want to be near

anyone they don't want to talk to anyone

and at that point if they're really not

willing to be near anyone like if you

come near them and they just freak the

[ __ ] out then you know I mean of course

if you've exhausted all your options

because just because someone freaks out

and you come near them doesn't mean that

you can't still help them then benzos

would be my recommendation at that point

but anyways on to the second portion of

this video tripping alone now when

you're tripping alone and having a bad

trip it is a lot different and a lot

more challenging to stop you know or to

at least deal with so it's not as bad or

it even turns into a good trip you know

and the one thing with this is I mean I

don't recommend even tripping alone

until you are seriously experienced with

psychedelics because the thing is you

know you you can take a tab once or

twice and think like oh yeah I know

what's up but acid is a weird drug you

know with most drugs like cocaine and

you know benzos opiates weed whatever

you want to call it the experience is

generally the same the high is generally

the same you know your tolerance may go

up you may have to take more but you're

ingesting the same drug the experience

is going to be the same so I could Alex

don't work like that psychedelics are

not the same every time you could take a

tab one day and then take a tab four

days later and it would feel like an

entirely different drug psychedelics are

the only like category of drugs that are

like this you know and I this is from my

experience this isn't you know some [ __ ]

that like all I heard from a friend this

is from my experience doing it every

trip I had felt really different

mentally even though when you look at it

I was doing the same thing you know I

was doing the same stuff on the same

places and

same people every trip was incredibly

different and I look back on them all is

like super super unique and you know

different from one another and that's

the thing you know you you have to

really be experienced a trip alone so I

wanted to get that you know make that

very clear and get that out of the way

but one thing that I personally think is

really really good when you're having a

bad trip on your own is listen to calm

ass music I'm talking like really calm

music like listen to you know some slow

like even some like Orchestra type [ __ ]

or like violins and [ __ ] just just soft

music you know like relaxed laid-back no

no crazy hype EDM dubstep [ __ ] none of

that just listen to calm music you know

maybe if you if you have a computer if

you're on your computer watch some like

normal people videos like watch like

watch like cat videos or like baby fails

videos just like very very stupid like

you know things that like a middle-aged

mom would watch if she was at home you

know and her her son was at school and

she had to pick him up in an hour but

you know she had like 35 minutes to blow

until she had to leave the house but she

didn't quite have enough time to so

something new so like she watched a baby

video like that's what you should do

just watch like go go on YouTube or go

on any video site and just watch very

very calming videos very very relaxed

like very straight edge videos you know

just very very generic stuff you know

the YouTube trending plays page excuse

me it can be like a super good place to

find these kind of videos you know or

you could just look up like cat video or

something like that just watch something

that is really really like soothing you

know some [ __ ] that you'd see on like

America's Funniest Videos you know like

just something that is you know very

like family-oriented because when you

see those kind of things you know like I

mentioned before as it's gonna make you

you know very very susceptible to what

you're seeing and very very focused on

the one thing that you're doing so if

you're just sitting there doing nothing

staring at the wall while you're having

a bad trip it's only gonna get worse if

you're watching a video with like a cute

little cat it could help fix your trip

or like you know a little baby in there

some [ __ ] it could help your trip you

know it could another thing that you can

do and the

one is a little I don't know I don't

know how to put it you know it can be

good or it can be bad is playing a video

game you know playing a game it it can

be good and bad because when you're

playing a game when you're tripping it

completely engulfs you you know it

completely sucks you in like you are

really really focused on that game

because it's almost like you don't even

realize that things are going on around

you you know at least and this is from

my experience but when I'm playing a

game when I'm tripping I'm really really

focused on it because not only do I have

that kind of like acid tunnel vision but

there's so much going on I have to focus

on it and it's keeping me interested

even if I'm sucking dick at the game

even if the game sucks asked I begin

with like if I was sober I'd probably

hate the game but when I'm tripping I'm

really really into it and really focused

on it and it takes my mind off of other

things you know all I can think about is

the game and like you know I'm having

fun and what am i doing like for example

I remember one time I was tripping and I

played h1z1 with a friend and that might

not be the best game recommendation you

might just want to play like a

platformer or some like calm game but

you know anyways I was playing h-1 with

a friend and I was like parachuting and

I was looking around that all the stuff

around me like all the you know all the

scenery and I just like landed in a

god-awful spot and died and it was

amazing I was like I was laughing I was

having fun just cuz I was looking around

the environment I was like what happened

like oh [ __ ] dead like I don't even

think I don't even think I hit an enemy

with a weapon that night but I played

for like two and a half hours of the

buddy of mine and we were just [ __ ]

around it was it was fun as [ __ ] you

know and well when you've got you know a

good game to play just to kick it chill

out you know it it can it can help take

your mind off it now one thing that I

wouldn't necessarily recommend is shows

like Netflix and you know any any TV

shows for the most part because from my

experience I don't I don't know what it

is like I can't really give a specific

reason but shows don't really help my

trip and nor can I really stay focused

on them like they're the one thing where

like I just can't stay focus on them

because here's the thing when you're

playing games you know you're you're

sitting probably closer to the screen

you're probably focused in on it you

know you're really looking you're really

into it you know it's got you involved

you have to do something to do that you

know that's the thing that's the key to

taking your mind off of a bad trip you

have to be doing something but when

you're watching a show you're not doing

anything you're just sitting there and

staring and listening so you could sit

and stare and listen at anything going

on around you there's a lot of bang

outside of your house you're gonna go

stare at that and not the TV when you're

playing a game if there's like a loud

bang outside of your house chances are

you're not gonna care because you're

tripping balls and this game's got you

[ __ ] interested you're you're playing

the [ __ ] out of this game you know so

you know play some games

chill out watch some like baby videos

cat videos those kind of things those

can really help maybe even like FaceTime

a friend you know FaceTime a friend call

somebody talk to somebody you know

talking to people can be can be very

good you know and also don't play games

that are competitive like and by that I

mean don't play the competitive mode of

games for example if any of you guys

have played League of Legends don't play

ranked when you're tripping cuz you're

gonna tilt you're gonna be mad and it's

gonna upset you or you're just not gonna

tilt and feed all game and then be mad

the next day you know either way

don't play games that are super

competitive or have like a ranked system

you know play play like the casual modes

you know play the the laid-back stuff

where you you don't care you know your

teammates won't care and you don't care

cuz if your teammates are baking you for

being bad in the competitive mode cuz

you're trippin balls it could upset you

you know it could make you feel like

[ __ ] so just chill out play some games

you know watch some YouTube videos for

those of you guys who don't play video

games honestly I would say just watch

them call them YouTube videos you know

take some deep breaths just chill out

you know try to enjoy yourself you know

another thing is I always found that you

know just vaping is really really

soothing when you're tripping I mean

even zero nicotine can just be really

really soothing because you're sitting

there watching the smoke you know slowly

slowly come out you could blow it out

real slow do some cool tricks oh they

blowing oh and just blow your [ __ ]

mind like you just see that and be like

why is that in the shape of an O like

holy [ __ ] you know like he just just

very very like basic calming things are

what you can do and of course if it

really gets out of hand you can

always have your benzos on deck but

that's the only time I'd ever recommend

benzos so either way that's just a few

tips from me on how to help stop a bad

trip hope you guys enjoyed this video

drop a like if you did thank you all for

watching I'll see you guys next time
