felt a little seen by this erik davis essay: https://erikdavis.substack.com/p/the-practice-of-paranoia

Probably my first big-time practice of paranoia, though, involved taking drugs in high school. These days, everybody knows that weed can make you paranoid. Researchers have proven it, most stoners have experienced it, and many former stoners attribute their parting of the ways to the frequency of it. Indeed, cannabis discourse is one of the main domains today where people admit to their own paranoia, even as breeders and marketers promote strains that are supposed to outwit the condition.

Weed has always been more squirrelly than that for me—the same strain that has kissed my brow with fairy dust can, in a different set and setting, send me on a twisty bardo ride. Obviously dosage is a factor. In high school, my slice of SoCal was flooded with skunk and other strong and sticky sinsemilla from up north, while favorable trade winds brought the occasional, and most holy, Thai stick. Huffing on these powerhouses often filled me with social anxiety, and sometimes outright paranoia, both cosmic and banal. But I didn’t stop smoking. Weed was an important social practice, and besides, then as now, I appreciate weird at least as much as fun. I tried to emulate my friend Bry-Fry, who said he learned to appreciate pot paranoia because it forced him to get over his insecurities, to not care what people thought about him, to go for whatever madness it was anyway.

i used to smoke a lot but i stopped a couple years ago cos it wasn't fun anymore and i was getting terrible bouts of the bad kind of introspection. but i've always been a very guarded person and maybe i should focus more on accepting where the ride takes me. but at the same time idk what the case is for resuming something i don't enjoy just for some kind of self therapy thats going to end w/ me under the covers watching mst3k.

I sniffed a line of dmt about an hour ago, didn't really do much , but feel good after, apart from my nose which still hurts a bit, not as bad as people make out though. I think dmt could be a great microdosing drug.

I was walking past a place I'm gonna call drug street, it's where they sell heroin and crack, kinda like The Wire, you speak to one guy and he sends you down a side-street to meet the guy is holding.
For some reason it made me smile cos this guy was sweeping the road, uniform and all, and then he got to the corner, spoke to the man, left his brush and pan and nipped to the side street where I nosily watched him buy something, and then he came back and carried on sweeping. Why not I guess but somehow it tickled me.

It's quite nice to microdose yes good drug in that you can choose how far in you want to go. Just a tickle to full stargate. Had no idea you can snort it. Not sure I would.

I've never heard of DMT as a sniffable drug - do you know if it was pure or mixed with an MAOI?

so what's on the menu for tonight?
Not a lot... at my friend's restaurant now but curfew kicks in at 11pm tonight until 5am and then tomorrow there is curfew from 1pm so this weekend is a bit of a washout.
Got some friends doing a party 6am until 1pm but it's kinda like an after party with no before party seems odd.

It's pure, no maoi. it's active just a lot wasted it's not a good idea really no one recommends it, hurts and you need at least double the amount. It lasts a lot longer though. I just got a free sample off the web from some weird cult and I didn't have a pipe or anything.

Sounds like it'd probably be worth getting a pipe for, if you have any left. Years ago I made some yopo, which is snortable and has got DMT-like stuff in it (mainly bufotenin, the same as the toad venom). It was REALLY strong, but the sensation of having just done a fat line of crushed-up dry-roasted peanuts detracted from it a little. I expect the people in South America who know what they're actually doing probably have a way of preparing it that makes it much less painful. Either that or they're just double-hard and I'm a wimp.
