follower of the child's crusade?
 
Mescaline

For a while I have been thinking that maybe I should seek some other escape from the world than booze... I dont have a lot of experience with drugs, a couple of E's and a bit of speed when I was in high school and I smoked weed a few times at parties at uni, but I've never acyually bought my own drugs or anything. Ive read some stuff, and Mescaline seems pretty good, physically not damaging, not as emotionally damaging as acid.... from what Ive read anyway... has anyone got any experience of this? If it easy to buy? Is it safe-ish? Does it make one feel better?

OK, this isnt going to answer your question, but if you are using *any* drug for an "escape", you need to seek some help. Recreational use is one thing, using it to "make you feel better" is another.

Not the answer you want...

Ditto on what sailor said... Drinking or drug use to escape from a life, or to make you feel better about yourself, is the wrong reason to be drinking or using any sort of recreational drug.

Not physically damaging? Quite the contrary. That stuff can send your heart rate and blood pressure through the roof, causeing a heart attack or stroke, and it can cause convulsions leading to brain damage. Days, months or even years later after taking it at any time you can randomly flash back to the time when you were on it and start hallucinating, or it can just cause you to become a schizophrenic. To top it all off, your memory will be messed up for the rest of your life. It screws with your whole brain chemestry and if you've got any underlying disorders (depression, whatever) they can come out a thousand fold.

Whether or not you do it is of course your choice, but don't by any means think it's not harmful to you.

And, of course, drugs, alcohol, nothing should be used as an escape from reality. If you feel you need to escape, might be time to see a doctor or psych.

very few ever suffer from HPPD
if you want to know more about drugs go to erowid.com
I would have to be another that agrees using any drug is not a good way to escape, psychadelics in general are the absolute last thing you want to do for that kind of stuff, next to something like heroin that is.
As for the memory thing, ive known and i myself have done a fair share of hallucinogen tripping and not one of us had our memory damaged.
A friend of mine goes through huge amounts of marijuana and when he does mushrooms does lots and has a better memory than almost everyone i know.

Strange Famous, you seriously need to see professional help. With as much money as you're willing to speond on drugs, you should spend on making yourself better. You're sick. Seriously.
