A Ketamine Trip Report

by Anthony Farina


Experimental. Anxieties & Phobias.


Shut Up Ego: A Ketamine Trip Report is a "pocketbook" by Anthony Farina detailing five monitored ketamine treatments that the author underwent. Farina, a skilled narrator, describes the profound impact of the therapy to reduce his depression, anxiety, and addiction from childhood and from war as a combat infantryman.


Offering a compelling firsthand account of the therapeutic potential within a ketamine-induced altered state, Farina challenges the conventional boundaries of mental health treatment. Shut Up Ego not only explores the depths of consciousness but also advocates for a progressive approach to mental well-being, making it a must-read for those seeking alternative and effective paths to healing.

Vulnerable. Enlightening.

With a combined total of 46 months deployed over 15 years, SSG Farina has been to many countries for combat-related operations, rescue operations, show-of-force missions, and prisoner extractions.
