I've got a question i've always wanted to know.
    #2919195 - 07/23/04 04:08 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

First off, hello everyone i'm new here. This place seems awesome, i think i'll be havin a blast here. :laugh:

Now i've got a question about Acid. You see, i've always wanted to do it, always. I know how it works, but theres a problem. Everyone around here sais that acid can make you blind. I've asked tons of people and they all said that. It scares me, because i want to do acid but i dont want to go blind.

I dont know where this whole "blind issue" came from, but is it true? Do any of you know WHY my friends would say something like that? Has it ever happened to someone? Is it possible that someone can go blind by doing Acid? Somebody please tell me, i REALLY want to know.

It would be greatly appreciated.

Err, I don't for for a fact...but I do believe the only way it'll make you blind is if you do a massive amount of it :P

Now grain alcohol, THAT can make you blind.

I don't know why your friends would say something like that, everyone I know who has tried acid has loved it.

Got a question about a substance?  Erowid might already have your answer! Have questions about the  mushroom experience? The  Tripper's FAQ may have your answer or someone else might have had your question before.

there's some myth about these kids who went blind from straring into the sun on acid. it's not a true story, but i bet you'd go blind if you did stare into the sun on acid, if you did it sober too.

You can read more about that myth in the sidenotes in Timothy Leary's high priest, and also on Erowid. A lot of evidence (which is in fact a lack of evidence) points to that story being propaganda.


--------------------
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.

People have gone blind temporarily on several psychedelics, for very short times.. usually less than a minute or two. I've read several trip reports from individuals who reported this happening to them.

However, if you're asking if someone has gone blind permanently from taking LSD, I highly doubt it. And if it has happened, it was likely due to a lack of judgement leading to someone doing something really stupid. (Like stare at the sun for hours, or poke themself in the eye with a pencil)

So, unless you have a tendency to do really stupid self-destructive things on psychedelics (in which case you shouldn't be taking psychedelics, by the way, hahaha) you shouldn't go blind from taking acid.

:lol: just don't look at the sun while you're on it. It will not make you go blind.

welcome!!!  and please feel free to have a blast here :laugh:

i have never heard of acid making you go blind.  just be smart, especially with your first time, and you should be ok.  you kow, don't go off doing like 7 hits or something.  start off with like 2 or 3 at the most.  this way you can get a really good feel for it. 

just my 2 cents....

:sun:


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

As with masturbation, LSD shouldn't make you blind.  :wink:

I've known people who have taken absolutely rediculous amounts of LSD(100 hits at a time) None of them are blind.

Man, if sex is making you blind, someone's sticking something in the wrong place...;)
