LSD dos NOT cause brain damage. Syd Barrett may have had a lobotomy, IMO.

    Does LSD Cause Brain Damage? - LSD Addiction


    It says it doesn't. So how on earth is Syb Barrett some kind of phenominal exception?? Gilmore said that Syd's story is romanticized.

    I imagine British Secret Service saw Syd as a dangerous entity and clandestinly gave him a lobotomy, a practice which started to wane at the time.

    There is no other likely explaination for his rapid mental disturbances. Or maybe he fell on his head, while tripping? no pun intended.

    I took about a thousand trips, between 1968 and 1972. I took my last dose on New Years Eve, 1972. Bob Weir looked at me, from the stage, and mouthed "enough."
    It was. True story.

    Shortly afterwards, my very square boss at Warner became concerned about my mental health, because I seemed too "focused all of a sudden."
    The only after-effect I experienced was seeing the oval of the commode turned sideways. It happened on one of my later trips and hung around, for a few years. Unlike alcohol or cocaine(other than its local anesthetic property), which literally don't work on me, LSD and Peyote are simpatico with my neural net. There is no toxicity issue with LSD, although you may think you're dying, it's just your ego. It may not be coincidental that I stopped taking LSD about the same time high quality acid vanished. San Francisco was the right place to be. Sex on top of the Art Institute building, with Jorma and Jerry jamming about 1/2 of a block away....
    Memories, that's all ya get to keep, so make some!

    LSD is a mind-opener not a destroyer. Kissing God. Now, if you have mental issues I'm sure it can do some damage. That said, why kiss God more than 10 times? Like anything , it becomes abuse. Glad coffee and cigars are my drug. I'm nice, why destroy myself?

    Yeah...Ozzy is living proof that drugs do you no harm.

    Oh yeah...right...

    Carry on.

    So MTM, did you download that Conspiracy channel on Roku or something? You had alot of these theories lately. Or maybe I need to replace the tin foil in my hat again.

    Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous tripped on LSD, I believe once every other week for about 2 1/2 years, 22 years into his sobriety.

    This is a much deliberately overlooked tidbit of information in the world of Rehabs and 12 Step philosophy.

    Freud was a Cocaine addict. You have to honesty question the authenticity of their legacies and the principles of their philosophies.

    it's like saying Rob Halford is a flaming homosexual. no, wait......

    I never implied drugs do no harm. I specifically stated LSD.

    Also, Ozzy's drug of choice became alcohol, in addition to a host of other substances.

    do you not consider alcohol to be a drug?

    Lead singer's disease absolutely DOES give you brain damage. Many friends have it.

    You know that prisum light bending pick is WRONG. ?

    light enters the prizum and is bent for all of 180 degrees. 6 bands is not enough.

    so what is it actually?
    what's going on?

    the light is already expanded so why expand it again with glass?

    Are you seeing time enter infinity?

    is it the black hole in 2D?

    the light left the sun in exploded form, entered the earth's atmosphere and slowed down and was bent by each particle in the air, then entered the prisum and was bent again.
    the number of bends would correspond to the same number of bends in a blackhole. so therefore it represents the blackhole effect on the light source signal.
    the end of all matter and time and music. :(

    Of course alcohol is a drug. Having been alive in the sixties and knowing people who did LSD regularly...and nothing else...I can guarantee you that too much of it can seriously harm your brain permanently.

    Also, think of it like moonshine. Done right, it can be a potent sweet drink. Done wrong, one sip of it can blind you. And since LSD was basically a home manufactured drug at the time...you could end up with either extreme.

    I have never knowingly taken it, but I have been slipped it twice. Once it was just being in la-la land for awhile. The other time, I went on a little journey, literally. I wandered around for a few hours in the rain in my socks. I had no idea what I was doing other than trying to get away from "something" and trying to make a big enough circle to get around to the front of the house that the party was at. It seemed to make sense at the time even though it was nonsense. I must have ended up walking for miles as it was hours later that I returned. If I did that every day, I would be a complete basket case. It took me weeks to recover from that and feel normal again.

    I think that picture in the first post causes brain damage.

    Nothing personal but, if you did your research you'd know why. Syd used to crush mandrakes aka quaaludes and mix them in Brylcreem and rub it in his hair. Now if he made a habit of this, and with other drugs as well it's very understandable.

    At the time of Freud, Cocaine was widely used by the upper classes, especially in the medical professions who had access to it. If administered correctly it had no serious side effects.

    It's is still used today in medicine, as are opiates.

    Peace

    LSD definately affects brain function. It is a heavy metal. A derivative of strychnine, a common component of cheap assed blotter acid. I didnt have get much beyond 7 trips to start seeing the difference when i decided that was enough. I knew people that did hundreds of trips and they were what you called " burnt". Totally changed.

    Danny passed away in a mental facility. Green is lucky to still be around. It was life changing for both those guys.

    Frank Marino of Mahogany Rush had his bout with LSD as well but, still turned out to be a pretty decent fellow.
