LSD- exprierences, opinions, questions.
LSD is a psychedelic drug. it was first developed by swiss chemist Albert Hofmann. It comes from a grain fungus (mostly on rye) called ergot. from there it is turned into lysergic acid and then synthesized to become LSD.

i myself have had many experiences with LSD. its a very powerful thing, not to be taken without a firm grasp on your sanity.

anyone wanna share opinions questions or experiences please do!

I personally enjoy LSD very much... but... only maybe once a year, if that. For me, the last time I did take it which was just before thanksgiving last year, It felt like my mind was aging faster than my body billions and billions of times over. It felt like I had an endless amount of time to think of anything that came through my mind - which I did.

Thankfully I didn't have extreme visuals that made me have a bad trip, but rather, very nature-like and focusing more on every detail of every person I talked to and how their whole life experiences lead them to the very moment I started talking to them.

Idk if this happened with you doom, but people's "vibes" were extremely.. Vibrant o.o; like someone would walk by me and I could just feel their entire personality.


Cats are indescribably amazing while on this drug too.


The only downside is that after it was all said and done, billions of years seemed to have passed in my mind and when I came down to a regular perception of time, I had a veryyyyyy hard time coping with how slow everything seemed to go. Waiting 4 hours for my friend to call me about what we were going to do that night for black Friday seemed like torture. literally.

But I would say the good things outweighed the bad. Not as far as quantity, but quality. I couldn't even begin to describe how much detail I could see in nature. patterns/colors/ect.. stuff like that. I would say it's an amazing experience but as I think back, If I could change what I did but still know what would have happened, I would have waited A LOTTTTTTTTt later on in life to do it. I only had 18 years of memories and thoughts to work with so I became bored after the first hour or so I started thinking about my life.



What kind of experiences did you have? Something similar?

my first experience i was 12 years old. my sister gave it to me. At the time i had no grasp on how wrong this situation was and how gravely it would effect my life in the future. so, i went down the rabbit hole. this 1st time though was not so intense because i zoned out on guitar for about 16 hours. all of which felt like a minute. the next day was horrible. i got to school (7th grade) and some one dropped their bookbag on me. i picked it up and launched it across the forum and hit another child in the face. i was immediately sent home afterward.

I waited another 3 years before giving it another chance. this is when i really discovered the true wonders of cid. All alone i took three doses and drifted into my poetry. i totally relate your experience of having all the time in the world to think over the most intense ideas. this is when i became very interested in platonic philosophy.

In my sophomore year in high school i did it every day. i have no memory of this point in my life. my friends from that time (some of which i'm still in touch with) describe me as an erratic psychopath on an adventure to escape society. in some ways i feel that i haven't left that stage. Among the myriad of psychedelic experiences i had that year there are two outstanding memories. One, it was October 22nd 1993. I was in school. i had just made a deal and gave some kid 8 tabs for way too much money. i had 7 left. it was lunch time so i snuck out behind the gym to smoke a cigarette. after enjoying my Romeo y Julieta (yes i was classy even then) i was making my way back into the school. the security guard saw me and thought i was skipping. He made me sit on the curb and called a guy from the office to escort my back into the building to get in school detention. Since i was outside they were going to search me (part of their system to decrease drug deals) i knew this. i had 7 tabs in my pocket. so when they werent looking i ate them all. i enter the office and they search my shit. i had forgotten i had a to-go-pack in my bag and so i was being arrested for possession of marijuana. I was tripping so hard when the cop read me my rights. he looked like he was cut and pasted out of reality. i'll never forget that moment.

my second experience that year was when i had eaten 15 tabs of pure lysergic. too much... i passed out in a dizzied spasm. while passed out i dreamed the most vivid dream ive had to date. but the uniqueness of this dream lied in the length. in my mind it lasted 60 years. i had an entire lifetime within my dream. a wife, a home on the beach, children, fine cigars, birds that fly under water, purple sand, talking animals...etc.. this still remains one of the most tragic experiences of my life i lost everything when i awakened. After waking up i attempted suicide 4 times and was checked into a mental home. i stayed there for a year and a half and was treated for schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder. over the years my mental health has been sustained. my mind needed a lot of healing after my sophomore year. i still eat doses about once or twice a year.

Do you have memories of being born in that 60 year dream? Also were there any people in the dream that were taken from your waking life?

just like any other dream my memory of it has faded over the years. but i wrote in my journal the most details i could. i do not remember my birth, but i do remember my early childhood vividly. my parents were very different in the dream. None of the people in my dream were remotely related to anyone i had ever met ( in appearance). the setting was a small town on the shore of a vast purple green sea. (sounds cheesy but mind you i was tripping very hard). I've had normal dreams that have taken me back to this place, but i can never find my wife or children.

i have had one other abnormally long dream in my life. this dream lasted about 2-3 years. i was a train conductor/ marine in WW2/ French cook. These all shine through into my everyday life. Especially when i was battling my mental illnesses in my youth (MPD, Schizophrenia)

Generally people don't remember their birth. Usually, vivid memories start around the age of 4-5, well, at least for me they did.

I think it's much more realistic that it turned out that way.

I find that trips like that are amazing, but have the potential to be very scary because living another life for so long like that would have extreme repercussions like you described - like forgetting about the life you "left behind" .

I think if one's mind was mentally conditioned to handle such an adventure could potentially come out of it rather inspired. But I imagine that sort of mastery would take much longer than 18 years or 31 years. Which makes me think I should try that method of steady progression, rather than trying to take as much as I can.

Sure it would be the most vivid thing you'll ever experience, but your mind just wouldn't be ready to take on that commitment. I guess you could say it would be like a child trying to beat an Olympic sprinting record without even knowing how to walk yet.
