…make ‘bad trips’ good… psychedelics study shows

 …a 2021 study (published in the International Journal of Drug Policy) has found that using narrative work and storytelling… “These stories make it easier, or at least more likely, to continue the use of psychedelics. When even bad experiences become good, an important threshold against psychedelic drug use disappears.”

…put simply, talking about the experience afterward – can reframe what is initially perceived as a negative experience into a positive one… even after a negative experience… was based on qualitative interviews with 50… psychedelic users. Most participants had used psychedelics between 10 and 50 times. Almost all of them had frightening experiences when using psychedelics, commonly a loss of sense of self and ego dissolution, often resulting from high doses… the researchers also noted that narratives could influence the future, as well as the past. “From this perspective, narratives are constitutive; we act upon our stories, that is, they are fundamental in understanding why we continue certain behaviors,” they said.
