use of word "recreational"

Post by eucalyptus » Wed Apr 13, 2022 5:31 pm

I am new here so forgive me if this is out of line but I wonder if using the word "recreational" might be counterproductive to the AD cause. Doesn't it add legitimacy to the notion of using amanita just for kicks, when it doesn't even lend itself well to that? The notion of recreational use might needlessly attract negative attention.

How about micro, macro, mega? Or micro, macro, sacramental?

These are just a start. Maybe someone can come up with a better word?
-Ceremonial
-Sacred
-...

I know the videos are already made calling it recreational, but maybe this is something to consider moving forward.

Love the site and it has helped me a lot! Hope everything continues to move in a positive direction and challenges can be met as it grows bigger.

As non-English Native I always had a bit of trouble with the word "recreational" because I have no concept of this word at all, as a visual thinker.

So I used "hero dose" but this also feels wrong, because it was in no way about being reckless.
Yeah I might just get used to the term recreational...
