A big pro of solo tripping concerns accessibility. When shrooming alone, there’s no need to coordinate schedules with fellow trippers, groups, or guides, and you can choose your own best day and time for the journey. If you’re a person who enjoys and seeks solitude… tripping solo might feel like a comfortable and supportive way to journey inwards.
The biggest potential disadvantage to tripping solo on shrooms concerns your ability to feel safe and supported in the event of a mentally challenging trip, particularly if you’re doing a deep dive into your psyche and processing past pain… If you seek the privacy of tripping alone, but would also prefer the comfort of knowing someone is there if you need them, consider asking a trusted friend, neighbor, or trip sitter to stay in a nearby space, such as in the next room, for the duration of your trip. That way you can benefit from a solo trip with the peace of mind that comes with knowing support is available should you need it… if you take any prescription medications or other substances… for contraindications or potential interactions.
