I still want to get stoned or eat some mushrooms and bug out though. Is that a bad idea?
Mushrooms are fine. As a matter of fact, psilocybin is a sobriety enhancement drug and if you are in a twelve step program you should reward yourself with a shroom once you complete the twelfth one, you've earned it. Psilocybin is good for the brain much to the chagrin of the Nixon/DEA war on drugs dinosaurs. It creates neural connections you don't normally have and if you do it often enough you can bring this more enhanced and expanded consciousness into your everyday life, which is a good thing. For more info about what scientists recently discovered regarding the fascinating effects of psilocybin on the brain, here's a news link;http://news.yahoo.com/magic-mushrooms-create-hyperconnected-brain-172648890.html
A dose of LSD every three to five years is good also. It helps with things like ego perspective etc. It's another drug unfortunately demonized by fear and ignorance. All things in moderation is fine.
Salvia is highly recommended. It will introduce you to a dimension of yourself you didn't know existed. It will remind you that your reality belongs to you. Do what thou wilt.
Avoid weed. It is the drug of mediocrity and complacency. Cannabis is the patron saint of underachievers. Waste of time and money. Not compatible with being driven and goal oriented. Clogs the memory lines of the brain creating slower and more difficult recall. Most high energy/high achievers in this world don't touch the stuff. Remember that. That said, a little smoke on your annual vacation is okay. Just don't be habitual or chronic.
Yes, you're reaching the age now where you must leave the youthful imbibing behind and take care of yourself or else die sooner than you otherwise would have to. If you can drink occasionally and not overdo it when you do, I suppose that's alright. But if you drink like a maniac or alcoholically when you drink, the divorce from alcohol must be complete. That said, if you're sitting in a historical pub in Europe you may excuse yourself under these conditions with a few pints of ale. I know I'm going to when I return to Europe. To sit in pubs hundreds of years old where people like Dickens and Dylan Thomas and others have drank and not hoist a pint in honor of my ancestral lineage (Anglo Saxon) would be a sin against my heritage.
And last, fuck the naysayers about your new healthier lifestyle choices. It's your life and your health. Tell 'em to grow the fuck up if they don't like it.
