Long term effects of psychadelic use
    #4206804 - 05/22/05 03:25 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I have been getting very close to a woman and although we are on the same page about almost everything, we go very different directions when it comes to drugs. I have the attitude that most of us have on this board, that many drugs are not (very) harmful when used in moderation, particularly most psychadelics.

She is not naive about drugs, but worries about the long term consequences of using psychadelics regularly. Does anyone have any data, evidence, or anything to indicate what the long term effects of regular (let's say once every two weeks to a month) use of psychadelics are? I am specifically talking about mushrooms, although I would also be interested to know about LSD.

Is there any evidence to indicate that LSD is more harmful to you than mushrooms? Has anyone on this board experienced problems from long term, semi-regular psychadelic use? I have been using mushrooms regularly for about six months and have not had any problems whatsoever.

Thank you very much.

yes, both physical and psychological, please. I'd like to know as well ^^. I'm sure it's been talked about in alot of other threads, but I don't think I've seen any bad long-term effects for either PHYSICALLY, but sometimes psychologically.

If I'm wrong about the physical part, please let me know. Does LSD/Mushrooms have any long-term physical effects whatsoever.

So it goes.

I used LSD quite a bit during and just after high school, and I feel that this is the cause of my short-term memory problems. However, I feel it has enhanced my long-term memory, especially memories of early childhood.

I know there are many cases of breaks with reality after prolonged use of LSD, but have not heard of any from mushroom use. This is all just stuff I've read on my own here and there over the years of research.

www.erowid.org You'll find info there, IME the long term effects of psychedelics are all positive. As far as physical effects, there are none.

maybe flashbacks could be considered a long-term effect of lsd use.

True flashbacks are extremely rare occurances, and they can be caused by any intense emotional experience, they aren't due to drugs themselves.

one of my friends says that he thinks acid has done damage to his short term memory, while i don't think it has because he used to do a lot of different drugs, and i think it could've been anything. but he is fairly sure the acid has had an effect. i know, this is isn't saying much, but it's still something that should be taken into account.

the only effect i've noticed from tripping is seeing things in the corner of your eyes that aren't there. sometimes it's kind of annoying, and i have to do a double take a lot to see if i really saw what i thought i did. although i'm not sure if this is a long term effect or not, as i have not gone a month without using any psychedelic drugs in awhile, and i do smoke weed regularly.

i agree with dark star in that most of the effects are positive, and if seeing things in the corner of your eye are a permanent side effect, then it's still totally worth it.

sometimes i feel 'off'.. i did lsd alot a few years ago when i could find it. nothing too godawful bad, i'd consider the effects positive. sinse i've backed off tripping almost totally, however, i do find it's easier to think alot clearer and short term memory is definitely better. but, .. between dxm and lsd, i was tripping twice a week. that kind of use is asking for it alone
