LSD tolerance develops rapidly, after dosing, you need to wait at a minimum two weeks before using it again. You will minimal to no effect taking it two days in a row, and waiting a few days you will notice a severely diminished effect. Just wait two weeks.
There was no change.
Acid and mushrooms are incredible and the experience of taking them a nice memory.
My friends and I would always say, 'If everyone in the world could have this feeling things would be so much better.'
As for me, acid was a cleaner drug than half the poisons I take now and I got a thousand times bang for the buck.
There are those like Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd that fried his brain by doing acid all the time. Shine On You Crazy Diamond is about Syd. Don't be Syd, bipolar would be the least of your problems.
Everything in moderation, like the 16 pills of psych meds I take daily...right?
But like any drug things can go bad. You will be hallucinating for 8+ hours and it's a bit of a psychotic experience in every way.
Any drug that can make you see what you see, hear what you hear, and touch what you touch is very powerful. If I had a friend back then that I knew was a very unstable type I wouldn't give him acid. At least not to do it with me.
