How To Understand Different Psychedelic Experiences 

by Scott

One of the main differences between psychedelic experiences and other mind altering substances like alcohol or coffee is that the each experience can be so vastly different. This is true person to person as well as within your own experiences.

These experiences instilled in me a notion that if I was good at things, I’d get love.
