That stuff is hard to kick! You can have seizures and die. That & booze are the scariest to detox off. You can actually die. Congrats on doing it man! Keep it up! Don't let me down.

whats crazy is i slept every night and had 3 seizures but got off way way easier than i should have. i did not miss a dose at least 3 times a day since february of 2015 till october 2018. if it had been like previous withdrawls i should still be sick! i think it was the mentality of wanting to quit this time rather than bein forced to cause was locked up is difference or i fried my brain.

[Serious question] Is LSD an addiction? I thought about trying and get chilled.

I'm in AA with a kid who that was his DOC drug of choice. Like one poster said anything can be addictive. LSD isn't addcitive in the physical sense. but you may like the fake world better than reality and use constantly to not have to deal with reality. I am under the impression that LSD is used to have a spiritual awakening. used as a tool. not as a way to get fucked up and like party man. Know what i mean?

LSD is generally considered to be non-addictive simply because you can only take so much of it before you get diminishing returns. If you do 100-150 mics for instance, its generally an 8-12 hour adventure. You won't be entirely functional for at least half (if not more) of that period so don't make plans to be in public for the first few hours. Most of the people I know that use LSD frequently still only use it once a week (if that) because while tripping is fun-- 8-12 hours is a lot of time you might want to spend doing something else (unless you microtrip all the time). Your body will need time to reset to zero so you generally won't be doing back-to-back daily trips. Also if you're not aware psychedelics produce serious nausea, you will want to puke (generally) although you may or may not actually puke. The serious nausea usually only lasts an hour or so of the trip, the rest of the time it won't be to an intolerable degree.

The other issue, as noted by the other commenters, is that LSD can cause specific issues (this is not exclusive to LSD though) in certain people. Drugs in general tend to amplify certain quirks (or problems) in people (even issues that were seemingly hidden to their friends before). If you struggle with anxiety or nervousness or have an addictive-type personality or some other issue then you need to be honest with yourself about how (any) drug might affect you. People without those problems don't have lingering effects after drug use, people that do have those problems will have it cranked up to 1000% during drug use and THAT can affect them long after they're completely sober.

LSD will not make you kill yourself (other drugs might-- 25I-NBOMe 'N-Bomb' for instance-- commonly sold as LSD-- do your research), although it will put you out of your element of control and some people don't handle that well. If you're worried that drug use may trigger some sort of attack (LSD or not) for you, then do not do drugs.

LSD can be a lot of fun and help you explore a whole new side of the world. 10/10 would recommend but its not for everyone and that's OK.

So, if you're a nervous jittery type, I would not recommend LSD because you 'wont' be in control of the situation and you'll have a hard time coping after the fact if something triggers an attack for you and you feel paralyzed and helpless for hours.

If you're actually a laid back person in general and not easily bothered by most things (and not just pretending you're laid back when you aren't)-- then go ahead and use it, you'll be fine (just don't try to drive or go outside the first time-- especially if you don't have someone who's tripped before with you, there'll be PLENTY to do inside your house for the trip and you won't be bored at all.)

Somewhat stereotypical but the first time I tripped I watched Back to the Future 1 and 2. The movies blew my mind, then I spent several hours on youtube watching 80's music videos (retro videos for me are absolutely mesmerizing when tripping-- I watched some of them like 10 times in a row). That was it, nothing crazy. I did feel I understood certain genres of music better by the end of it though.

Thanks @GIIOST @RKG and @Xantha for replies. I guess I'll wait some time before trying out. Need to clear my mind first, it gets really tumultuous these days.

Glad you're crossing to the other side man. I used to work with a guy who was in to partying hard when he was younger and finally made it out years ago. As I was getting to know him, I asked him how long he had been sober. He checked his watch and told me how many years (18+), months, days, hours, down to the minute he had been clean. I asked him if he still ever gets the urge to do heroin and he said "Constantly." That opened my eyes to the difficulty addicts face and the deep impression those experiences leave on somebody. It sounds like yes, certain addictions must be replaced with something positive to fill the hole that was left behind, otherwise the tide waters can rush back in. We'd go to the bar together and I'd order some whiskey for myself, a soda with lime for my friend. He didn't last in the business world... he was covered in tattoos, about 6'4" and kind of scary looking on the surface unless you got to know him, so he always made the wrong first impression with our clients. Last I heard, after he left the business a few years ago, he became a drug counselor for addicts and has never been happier. Sure do miss that guy.

My brother overdosed last month.

I hadn't talked to him in years because he was a piece of shit. Long ago I tried to give him a wake up call and it didn't take. Everyone else in the family put up with it and now he's dead.

My father was abusive and my mother had mental issues. Growing up wasn't fun for us and my brother started smoking weed before he was a teenager. Then he drank a lot. By the time he moved out he was doing far more. He used to brag about every drug he'd done and when I asked he said he'd done heroin. I knew he was lying since he has no impulse control and would have taken it until he died if he had.

He was a bully, constantly picking fights with everyone but, despite being 6'3", he was a shitty fighter and got his ass kicked a number of times. He used to be tall, blonde, blue eyed and handsome but by his mid twenties his skin had become greasy and looked like it was melting. His eyes were constantly cloudy. He would zone out and then fall asleep. When he went to my grandfather's funeral that piece of shit nodded off and snored during the ceremony.

I was the only one in my family that called him on his shit and we got into fights about it. When my father was in his late sixties he grabbed him around the neck and started choking him out in front of my nephews.

He would pick fights with strangers about the stupidest shit and then get his ass beat for it. He hated everyone that didn't have the same tastes or lived as he did. In middle age he still had the mentality of a preteen because that was when his emotional development froze when he started taking drugs. He thought computers were stupid because they weren't around when he started using.

A long time ago he was lucky to get a windfall of money, more than most people in the country make in a year. For a short time he was pretty wealthy then he blew it all on drugs and drinking.

At the end his clothes were threadbare and he lived in a filthy house with holes in the walls, no electricity or water. He was seeing another addict that was enabling him. Had been seeing her for twenty years, which meant he also fucked around on her many times. Probably had some STDs.

In the end he passed out and was unable to be revived. He had enjoyed the final nod off. He was on opiates. Out of the windfall he had a dollar in the bank and a dollar fifty in his pocket left. Oh, an he owed thousands to people, none of whom are going to get shit.

yep, sounds like i'm in a meeting. This is a story that has been told before unfortunately. The same as mine has been told before. Drugs don't discriminate. They take people from all walks of life. I am sorry to hear about your Brother. Even though he was messed up, he was family and I know what that is like. My Dad OD'ed and I found him dead, I tried to revive him too. No luck. My dad hid his addiction very well, I had no idea he was using and I used for years! My Dad was suppose to leave me some money. nah. All gone. A house and car. Nah all gone. But it's okay. He taught me much more than money could ever buy. My Dad also Got a windfall for a car accident. 900k Thats was gone quick, 1/3rd to the lawyer & Half of the remander to my Mom. So he could support his habit for a bit. I hope you are doing well.

Thanks. I was sad for a little while, now I'm just pissed off.

Funny thing, one of the last things he ever said to me- "Why are you always so angry?" Fuck you, that's why.

Angry that he put us all through that, that he ruined my family and I dealt with the repercussions of his assholishness for years. He would get my dad pissed off and then leave so my dad would kick the shit out of me. Taught me to fight at least.

Was sad. Now fuck him. He died just as he lived, fucking it up for everyone around him.

Good for you. A real addict that made it out. Hard drugs claim more souls then they lose. You have a real story, unlike the shill weed addict story you mentioned. I wish you luck goat.

Here is a question. Would you have gotten to such a dark place if there was no war on drugs? A world where you didn't have to keep your use hidden for fear of prison. With drugs you could buy at a pharmacy, who could offer help as well, instead of a scumbag dealer.

I would never be able to get clean if I could go buy speed at CVS.

You didn't ask me but I can relate to OP much more then I would like to admit.
