LSD—lysergic acid, more commonly known as just “acid”— is a hallucinogenic drug that become popular during the social and cultural movements of the 1960s. A small drop of the acid is infused into a small tab of paper, which is then placed on the tongue or other mucous membrane in order to allow the acid to seep into the bloodstream. The user experiences a “trip”: a psychedelic hallucinatory experience that can last anywhere from several hours to more than a day. For some, it’s a revelation, even a spiritual experience; for some unlucky others, it’s a terrifying nightmare that refuses to end. Either way, its side effects can include flashbacks that can appear unexpectedly for decades.
Unlike most illegal drugs, LSD is not physically addictive—it doesn’t cause a chemical dependency, and you won’t experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking it. But that doesn’t mean it’s not addictive. It can become less effective over time, so long-term LSD users often find themselves taking more and more acid just to get the same trip—a dangerous practice that can lead to overdoses, which can in some cases be fatal. Combine this with existing psychological problems that give the addict a strong desire to escape from reality, and you’ll find many people who are in fact LSD addicts.
