Realize that drugs like psilocybin are not addictive and are not drugs of abuse. Compared with the common drugs of abuse, including nicotine and caffeine, it is relatively non-toxic.
I wasn’t making any such claims to the contrary about psilocybin. I simply have a strong emotional reaction to anything that can potentially alter my brain chemistry. I do not want to depend on anything outside myself (or anyone) to deal with angst or to achieve contentment, because I do not trust these to be reliable. I fear that I could become emotionally dependent on such things, regardless of any chemically addictive properties. To me these things represent a vulnerability. This isn’t a judgment of anyone else, but if I were to use these substances, I would feel like I was evading responsibility for my own equanimity. Anything that would alter my consciousness in any way would feel like vulnerability to me, like I may lose my individuality and personality.
