How do you make sure you have the best trip possible?

There are several reasons why people use psychedelics. Most people trip just for fun, but some people use psychedelics to gain insights about themselves. It can happen that you get important insights while tripping, but forget them again when you are sober. There are ways to make sure that the things you experienced during a trip stay in your memory a little better. For example, you can make drawings while tripping, write things down, smell specific scents (such as essential oils) and listen to certain sounds. This way you can “anchor” the experience in your memory, and try to retrieve it later. It can also help to discuss your experience with friends and possibly family who are open to it. Especially if you have had a difficult experience, it makes a lot of difference to talk about it afterwards: it is precisely the difficult experiences that people learn a lot from.
