Acid Every Weekend
    #2772195 - 06/07/04 05:41 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Usually I take acid, an average of... maybe every 2 months or so. So I did it last weekend, I'm definately dosing next weekend, and I have plans to go somewhere that I would like to dose the week after that. That makes 3 weekends in a row.

I know a lot of people have done this, and do this on tour everysummer, but I'm just wondering what kind of negative effects it has had on everyone. Am I just in more serious risk of a burnout? Cause I can deal with that. What about tolerance? Am I gonna notice any tolerance build up of the next couple weeks? Or is a week generally enough? I'm not becoming a acid head or anything, its just I have cool things to do the next two weekends. Afterwards it'll be back to waiting at least a month, preferably two.

Thanks in advance for the input. Please share experiences if you can  :laugh:

Well, I know for a fact that John Lennon from the Beatles had to stop his constant use of LSD because it was difficult to get ideas for songs....unless he was LSD at the time.

I know from expierience that I go through a huge lack of creativeness and....just being my 'ol self after constant use of acid :doh:

It's a shame too...a very wonderful substance it is.

Yes that it is. Now that I think about it, I've done it two weekends in a row before, just never 3  :crazy2:And I'm sure I'll be ok, I'm already pretty burnt and kinda like it  :tongue2:

yeah, habitual use of any drug really isnt a good idea.. not only for possible health problems, but building up tolerance to it really sucks also!

like 311 says...

"dope, i smoke it, but not everyday cus anything all the times a drag i say"

..haha

Hey Shrilly,

I don't get to stop by this site that often anymore, which is a sad sad thing but I just took a quick glance through the posts and saw yours and wanted to drop in and give my two cents...the one time I did acid two weekends in a row, I definitely felt fried afterwards...but lord knows I would have done it the next weekend if I'd have had it.
It's such a rare pleasure, I think you may as well go for it.
When I go see Phish on the 17,18,19,20, I wouldn't be surprised if I have 2 or three days in a row once I get my hands on sweet Lucy.

You lucky freak!

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

-Erik Davis

I did acid for the better part of 3 years (at least 5 times a month) and I think I had a great time. My friends told me that I did. But as time goes by I really have a hard time remembering specifics.

Never been a big fan of acid(first time tripping was on acid and well I was way too young, took too much, and was in a bad place) but I would be careful doing it too frequently, got a friend who used to live in orange beach, was dropping acid up to a couple times a week, and did it every week at least(except for the rare break to let his tolerance go down) for a couple months. He is a changed person now, I can't describe it well without you knowing him, but he has a different more "shady" personality and is a little paranoid all the time and just doesn't come off as himself, he used to be a real happy go lucky, talk to everyone kind of guy, and that was a year ago and he acts the same way I describe still, and if you say something about it, he insists he is just the same as he always was and the acid had no effect, but most of our friends noticed the same thing I did right after he moved back from orange beach.

And the "change" coincides with his time doing acid and was too sudden(imo) to be a coincidence.

Not sure about that, he wrote a lot of his best songs during the time he was on acid - and according to Mcartney they never wrote when they were high because it didn't work.

During his acid years he wrote Tomorrow never knows, Strawberry fields and Across the universe. During his non-acid years he wrote "Freeda people" and "Starting Over"... :smile:

Do you know what "Strawberry Fields" is about Alex? "Strawberry Fields" was an old Salvation Army children's home down on Beaconsfield Road, where John used to play when he was a kid, because John only lived 5 minutes down the road. Today, only the gates are standing :shake:




I honestly do not think that song has ANYTHING to do with John's LSD use.

Oh, I said "constant" use :sun:

He still used it, but not as often  :craven:

Do you know what "Strawberry Fields" is about Alex?

Well, it's about Lennons memories of his childhood which as he said were stimulated by his use of LSD. The confused language he uses -"Nothing is real", "I mean I think I know, Ah yes but it's all wrong" doesn't sound like someone straight trying to remember a salvation army home either. Strawberry fields was a psychedelic vision of his childhood, the chance of him writing something like that before he used LSD was pretty small.

He still used it, but not as often

Well he said he just used to eat it all the time from late 66 through 67 (Which is the period he wrote Strawberry Fields)

every time i get lots of acid i cant stop eating it till its gone. Tolerance is a bitch but you can just take more. Ive taken 4 while i started to come down off 2 and that was ok althought you might want to wait till you come down all the way to get back to the peak.

I've been saying....


Just because he has some verses that dont sound sober, doesnt mean that he DIDNT write them while ON drugs...but that the song is NOT about acid.

I'm sure he didn't write them on drugs. The point is the acid informed his world view while creating the songs. Lennon wasn't Fred Durst - he's not gonna write a song "about acid" saying "Hey, everyone, lets take LSD dude". He wouldn't be so gross. He's taking the experience of LSD on board and expressing it's psychedelic influence on his life through the music - Strawberry Fields had EVERYTHING to do with the influence of LSD on his life. It certainly isn't simply about a salvation army home. (Actually, Lennon never went in the salvation army home - there was bit of a garden in the grounds where he played - that's what he's referring to)

Thanks, but I already knew that.


You're taking everything I say out of context.

I mean, you are one of his friends, and he told you about what all the songs mean,right?

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make Chaz. We agree that acid informed most of his writing at least from 66 to late 67?

Timothy Leary dropped acid 311 times in his life, and I guess he was fine but he also always had 100% pure acid I think from Switzerland, had a perfectly controlled environment, and trip sitters; not to mention he was a p.h.d. in psychology which would help him throughout his trips.

I'd say once a month TOPS. I know you guys might tell me to stfu since I haven't done it but isn't acid one of the most traumatic things you can put yourself through? I think its just too much stress. Just think about how weed screws some people up.
