Drugs - Bad trips on Acid - why I say No to taking LSD

Mind-bending experiences on acid

In my late teens and 20s I got very involved in the drug-taking hippie culture and of course LSD or "acid" was amongst the substances I tried. I had both good and very bad experiences with this drug and eventually came to regard it as so powerful that the risk encountered by taking it just wasn't worth it.

Several times I took it I had what can only be called "bad trips."

I also discovered that what other people were experiencing on the same drug or their recommendations had very little to do with what could happen if I took it. I ended up saying a definite "no" to using this drug for recreational or any other purposes.

My bad trips

I had taken LSD a few times and thought I was used to its very mind-bending possibilities of totally transforming the world into some very bright and electrified sci-fi film reality where all sorts of things you normally couldn't see would be there. I knew it could be very hard to make sense of conversations or normal everyday stuff, but I wasn't prepared for what was to happen.

I was in a flat where some friends of mine lived. I had called hoping to take a girl I liked out to a Hawkwind concert but she had already gone with someone else so disappointed as I was I thought well, what the hell, I may as well join the others in taking some acid they had. It was supposed to be "Purple Haze" but we never really know what we were taking except that it was some sort of LSD.

The trip started off normally enough with everything getting more so, the music on the record-player more meaningful and the textures of stuff started to move, but then everything seemed to freeze and I felt like everyone was focused on me and time had stopped.

I also thought a mat on the floor was like a flying carpet and it was exquisitely patterned. People were putting records on and there was a pile of albums. I remember looking at the cover for David Bowie's Space Oddity and it looked amazing.

But things were getting weirder and for some reason I couldn't understand the words of anything that was being said or what was on the record player apart from Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix and the Hare Krishna mantra.

I turned and looked around and it was as if everything froze again and I got the paranoid feeling I had lost my mind and that somehow my parents had been told and worse that they were coming for me from the mental hospital.

I felt I had to get out so went out on the landing. I opened the door out on to the fire escape to get some fresh air but was unable to face going out there as it looked and sounded as if some form of war was going on and stuff was being fired loudly across the skies.

I looked back at the doors into the other rooms and a glass bevelled door appeared to have pathways leading down and away into another place via each strip in the glass. Fortunately I was still aware it was a door so didn't attempt to walk into it but went back in the other room.

I found a red pen and started drawing on paper and it looked amazing and then I carried on writing on the floor and got scared because it looked like blood. I thought somehow I was drawing and writing with my own blood.

Someone asked if I was OK and I said that no, I wasn't and they took me into the kitchen. I seem to remember that this was Janet whose boyfriend had also taken a lot of this acid and she told me he was trying to conquer its effects and was locked, by request, in one of the other rooms. I was given a lot of pure orange juice to drink to bring me down and Janet kept talking to me.

I felt helpless and just wanted to be back in normality again.

I stayed in the kitchen and eventually she said she was going home and did I want to walk with her as my parents house was in the same direction as where she lived with her family. By then I had come down a lot off the trip and outside all was now just a fine night with sparkling stars.

Eventually I got back to my parents house and went to bed. There were still all sorts of things going on with my eyes closed but eventually I dropped off to sleep and when I awoke I felt totally normal again.

That trip opened my eyes to how powerful LSD was and I realised I had experienced a "bad trip" but felt so relieved I was OK again.

The second bad experience I had after only taking half of a white tablet that one of the friends I was with had taken two of. It was said to be "White Cosmos" and had speckles in the tabs. I was told it was very "smooth" and "mild" but as we were going to a disco in the Students' Union I didn't want a strong trip and thought that taking a reduced amount would be a good idea.

It was anything but "mild" though because after I had "come through" on it I became incapable of doing anything. I couldn't understand what anyone was saying as all sounds were distorted.

Looking at people caused them to look like demons with horns and fangs and I couldn't cope with it. I went on the steps of some stairs whilst my friends on the same acid somehow did normal stuff like going in the bar and in the actual disco.

Some student went past in a gorilla suit and really looked like an ape but I knew it was really someone in a costume.

I was sitting on the stairs in a state very difficult to describe but basically I was unable to understand anything I could hear, I couldn't see my body if I looked down and couldn't remember who I was. It was as if I had disappeared and lost my identity. I was a nothing on a stairway or someone in a head that couldn't make sense of anything any more.

Someone I knew saw that I was in a state and they came to see what the problem was. One of my friends went to get orange juice to see if that would help get me down. Orange juice used to be a standard remedy for bad trips because of the high Vitamin C in it that is known to reduce the intensity of a psychedelic experience on LSD.

I was able to understand what one girl called Janet was saying, just about, (a different Janet to the one in the earlier story). She was trying to reassure me and was like a lifeline for me between the nightmare I was in and the normal world.

I drank more orange juice people kept giving me and was able to see myself again by now and knew who I was but everything was in multiple images. So if I raised my arm I saw lots of other arms with it. It reminded me of the multi-armed and headed Hindu deities.

I had kept my coat on too, not because I was cold but because I was unable to take it off or think about doing so. I stood up and felt like I had lots of bodies with lots of arms and was wearing lots of coats and was on multi-dimensional steps. This part of the trip was amazing and not horrifying.

Then I got sick and vomited all over the stairs. I was on my hands and knees and looking at the orange juice vomit made me try drawing in it with my fingers until someone stopped me and wiped me clean and got me down out of the way of the mess I had made.

Janet stayed with me and was talking to me and saying I would be OK. I wasn't able to do anything though. It was the second time a Janet had been my rescuing angel.

Then there was a tremendous explosion or what seemed like one and I thought I was going to die. In fact what it was a table had been knocked over and everything fell off it making the noise. My hearing was so amplified and distorted it seemed like an explosion to me.

I had no idea of how long any of this horrifying experience had lasted, all of which I had spent at the bottom of some stairs. Finally one of my friends called Ian said the disco was all over and it was time to go.

He and the others helped me to walk to the exit and out through the door. Then an amazing change took place. I was able to see clearly and hear and make some sort of sense again of the world. I could see the road and trees and cars and stars in the sky overhead.

I said, "Why didn't someone bring me out here earlier? I am OK now."

It was a lovely starlit night and I walked home with Ian through the park.

That was something I was to find again and again on acid that everything you were experiencing could change so drastically so fast and that it was easily possible to lose control on the drug by losing all touch with the normal world and how your senses work.

After many more trips on LSD, both good and bad, I learned to say no to taking it because I never knew what the drug was going to do or how strong it was.

As a hippie myself, that is one thing I would never touch,I knew I knew in my heart that my mind could never handle it, my friends talked about how everything was melting and scary. However, I had the worse trip on grass that was laced, and I didn't touch it again, unless I knew where it came from. Great hub, and I hope you find time to read a few of mine. Darski

Good hub man, I still have a few hits in the freezer, a couple of friends and I used to, in the later years, still trip only on New Years Eve. I would not even consider doing it now. I just feel, like a lot of other things in life, that's over and done. Like CSN said "Don't let the past remind us of what we are not now". Peace!! Tom

After several trips dope started having bad effects on me too and stupidly I took refuge in downers like Barbiturates and Mandrax, got addicted and ended up in a real mess. I have/had a conviction for possession of Mandrax. I think this happened to Syd Barrett too that he started taking downers as well as acid because I know he was taking Mandrax from stories about him. Nowadays I stick to a few beers! lol

The drug scene is a scary one at best. Growing up in Montreal in the streets I was exposed to it all, could easily get it and join in whenever it was around. But being a hockey jock, the most I did was have beer, marijuana and some hashish from time to time. I had no desire to get into the weird drugs and have my mind screwed up. I was fighting that already in school:0)

My youngest 16 year old son just moved in with me and he has been experimenting with Marijuana, studied it and enjoys vaporizing with buddies every now and then. I have shared my thoughts with him about the use of Weed and to do everything in moderation. I know it's useless for me to try to stop him, every second kid in high schools all over North America smokes.

I tell him not to try any harder drug but to stick to weed but ensure you know where your getting it from and that's its carefully home grown, as there is some awful shit out there. He will find out for himself over time if he wants to continue smoking weed, for now I am carefully monitoring him, but not controlling him, its hopeless to try to dictate to a teenager, I know how rebellious I was at his age:0) great hub, wow man you sure went heavy. Peace

Thanks, Saddlerider1! I have also tried other drugs including cocaine but could never afford it. Speed I never liked. My biggest problem was barbiturates and other downers including Valium that I was prescribed for many years.

I was also an acid taker long ago, and was fortunate not to have many bad experiences. But you couldn't pay me to take it at my age, I probably would have a bad trip!

It's strange, I became paranoid when smoking weed when I was 17-it just never agreed with me.

These days I'm finally over the worst drug of all-to me-alcohol. Two years ago I almost died from abusing it, and I'm finally clean and sober.

I'm not saying I don't have fond memories of the times!:)

Well, now I know why I did not jump off bridges: the sudden stop would kill me. Perhaps because I was raised in a "Okie," rural farmer environment, liquor was quicker with a good fight thrown in...

Bard of Ely 6 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

Lorlie, dope never agreed with me either after I had taken acid. It was OK before that though never really did much. After acid it could do all sorts of unpleasant things including paranoia. I have a hub on it here about how I found it easy to say no to cannabis. It's been a problem for me though still because I get affected by the smoke and have to avoid it - one bar here where there is great live music is full of stoners smoking and impossible to avoid it. I had a band years ago too that had musicians who all smoked dope and there was nothing I could do about that either if they wanted to skin up. It's been weird for me: because I look like a hippie people assume I smoke ganja and I don't - I try to avoid its smoke!

God! I loved reading this. I personally love LSD. It jacks up your brain. But, I discovered it completely unecessary! Who knew there was and LSD button in your brain! You just have to press it! With that button the trips are always smoooooth.

I don't believe in bad trips. I think LSD is a drug that make you believe things. You believe whatever your brain wants to believe.

That's why timothy leary said repeatedly that one should take advantage of the setting of a trip as the brain would kinda absorb whatever is in the enviroment and add it to the trip.

I dont think it makes sense to put yourself in awkward social situations on a drug that make everything bigger and brighter.

Been there too mate. Glad the days are over yet I would not want to change anything in the past as I am happy who I am now. The odd puff on a joint is still part of my life... I should say a part of my life again after 20 years no touchy. Acid trips are not something one can control as you say.... and anything can happen when you are not in control... so I recommend staying away from it.

Cheers to experience

Man.... I feel like, I'm gonna be on Earth forever. I'm only 16 and I smoke tha grass, an recently tried shrooms. My whole family has been through the drug scene and regrets every bit of it; but I feel like...... Smoking is a way to really turn my brain on. I always end up having "epic" realizations. But anyways, smoking, for me, isn't really a way of fitting in or for recreational purposes. It opens me up to live with the earth and not live the "normal" expected life. (growing up to work and hav kids and be perfect). I'd rather take my path with marijuana and to wherever that leads me. Do you have any advice or something I should think about before maybe this path I'm walking down fcks up my life? Please and thank you :) oh and by the way, I have been fighting with my mother about weed for almost two years now, and I just yesterday got her to tolerate me smoking as long as I have A's and B's in school

I always had a hard time explaining what it was like to someone who had never experienced it but you did an excellent job! I too had both good and bad trips and while it was fun then I would never do it now.

Do you know what I mean when I talk about how all of a sudden you'd be completely aware of how high you were and get a bit panicky over it but before you knew it you'd slip right back into it? I always called those my reality checks and they always freaked me out!

Great hub Steve! Whenever I read or hear about acid, some great advice always springs to mind that I received - always ensure your surroundings are safe - if there's someone in the room who you don't fully trust, don't do it. If you're in a place you don't know, don't do it. So, at home, with your friends, tidied up, I guess...

Nice read buddy. I have only experienced two trips in my 21 years on this planet. My first on black mamba, which was a bad trip for 45 minutes I thought I had died and 1 mild one on weed which I managed to deal with still unpleasant though. Thankfully my dad was a gret anchor throuh hem both. I can relate to this so much. Weed has never agreed with me since.

By the names it very much sounded like you some 'legal highs' that mimic the effects of LSD and not actual LSD its self!

I had a bad trip all alone in my own home on some pills called Mind Candy that I bought from a legal highs vendor off the internet at one time

Bard of Ely 3 years ago from Lisbon, Portugal Author

No, it was all real acid, very illegal, a very powerful chemical!


mrstaples 3 years ago

I dropped acid about 8 times in the past year or so during my age of 18/19. I took 2 hits everytime except once I took 6 and the last time I took 1.5. 2 worked great everytime. When I took 6 I didn't trip any harder, it was just a bad set and setting and some cheap, impure lsd. After I peaked out I went to bed and woke up about half an hour later and I honestly thought I was in a dream, then I'd realize I'm actually tripping and go back to bed. Happened like 8 times until I finally came down. And apparently it's impossible to go to sleep on lsd. The last time when I took 1.5 after I tried smoking meth for the first and last time earlier in that day around noon and took the acid late at night. It started off great then I barely remember the rest. I only remember a few thoughts I had when I completely lost my mind. It was literally like I was in my own world in a dream. I thought one of the two friends I was tripping with got injured or killed and I ran around outside yelling his name. I thought my car that was driven to the location was his and thought I was supposed to move it. That is all I remember. So I drove revving the engine speeding up and down the street and parked at a gas station close by where we were. I felt like it was my job to help with these emergencies. I disturbed the peace of the neighbors so they called the police. 5 or 6 showed up and I resisted against them when they tried to arrest me. I got taken down to the ground many times. Cuts and scrapes all over my body. I got tazed 3 times. The first 2 times it took me down and I got right back up resisting against them and sprinting as fast as I could all over the place. The third time I must've been moving around in some dangerous motion because I fell right on my head on the street and went unconscious. Bled out a big pool of blood. There was also another small pool of blood so I think I fell on my head one of the first 2 times being tazed as well. I also remember what it's like to feel tazed while on acid. Most painful thing of my life and I have a high pain tolerance. I suffered a traumatic brain injury and was in the hospital for 2 weeks. I kept asking the police how it happened and they kept saying they didn't know. I dont remember the first week and a half. After I started remembering each day after that it felt almost like I was still coming down from an acid trip. I was so grateful for life and everything. I had no worries at all. I used to be a quiet and shy guy but not anymore. I have all the confidence I need and project my voice as I should as well as being talkative. I thought so much about life and I honestly felt like I figured out life and it's whole purpose like God put me through this experience to bring me into this mentality to understand life. I no longer am interested in drugs like I was before. I am now focused on staying close with my family since I began growing apart before this and am now a lot closer. I am also focusing on my career and the rest of my life in front of me. Lifes purpose is not to continually take drugs. Natural drugs are there to look at the world from a different point of view and seeing it again and again will not help. Forget the synthetic drugs. Life is there for the experience. Forget your egotistical self. You can't make yourself happy. Experiencing life with others is what really brings happiness. I almost think hell is getting lost in your own world by yourself but I have no idea. God created the universe and created us so God could experience the world. We have our own consciousness as well as Gods consciousness in us. Think about this, all protons, neutrons, and electrons are the same. Each different atom contains a different number of them. Everything is made up of the same just different numbers. Energy is the only thing that can change the protons neutrons and electrons. Who knows where energy comes from. Who knows what brought life into lifeless atoms and molecules on this earth. God is the only explanation. We'll understand everything after we die. Right at death the brain releases DMT into itself. So I kinda think psychedelics bring us closer to death in our consciousness. It is a way to understand life and then return to normal reality. We will never completely understand life until death but we do seem to be getting closer. Who knows. And yeah like I was saying I'm way more talkative now haha. I feel like this trip and injury was supposed to happen to bring me this understanding. Some may think I am wrong but who really knows. I honestly feel smarter than I used to. I can think clearer and things are coming easier to me. I can understand much more than I used to. My effects of this traumatic brain injury are almost the opposite of the usual. Except for my verbal memory. Which still seems to be pretty good and I've always had a better visual memory so I'm just even more of myself than I used to be. It literally felt like I was reborn as an adult as I reentered the world and returned to myself as my brain healed. And this was only a month ago. It takes half a year to a year for the brain to completely heal. I just want to know why this all happened and if anyone can back me up. I'm not worried about it. Just curious. I have to see this neuropsychologist once a week and he kept telling me i'm not recovered yet. He wont let me go back to work or school or get my license back for a few months from now. He tells my parents to watch over me all the time and keeps my allowance of myself very limited because of the brain injured individuals hes had to deal with before. Last week I asked him about the protons etc and how life is made up of everything the same just different numbers. It had him completely stumped he was shocked I came up with such a theory. And this theory was completely my own, I never saw it anywhere else and i've searched for answers and found none. Well that is all. Take your carefulness with lsd. I'd say stick with shrooms. They are completely natural. Also lsd has impurities now. It is illegal and cannot be made the same anymore so it is no longer pure. It used to be way more spiritual. Not a euphoric body high as it is now. I discovered this after that injury haha. I just wish I was allowed to get back into life. By the time the doctor gives clearance for me to work and go to school and drive i'll be in court possibly having a jail sentence and probation etc. Other than drugs I completely follow the law but no one completely knows who I am and i'll have to legally suffer because i lost my mind on lsd. If i didn't i wouldn't have gotten in trouble but i would not be anywhere near where i am now. I am happy it happened. the only thing that pisses me off is the cops wont tell me how i got a traumatic brain injury and they wont take responsibility for it because they are afraid of getting in trouble. and also it terrified my family. i was mentally injured and wasn't back to myself at all the first week in the hospital. and the first few days the doctors had no idea if i would completely recover or how bad the injury really is. yeah its my fault i lost my mind but i could never predict that. its rare. i only disturbed the peace. the cops gave me the injury and scared my family and they wont even tell me. but its all in the past and i'm closer with my family now so i really dont have any regrets. its a huge life story to me and theres so much to say about it. i never expect to talk or type this much but i do haha. hope you enjoyed reading. also i left this out, i was born 3 months prematurely and had a brain hemorrhaging. then it happened again after the injury so it makes it feel even more literally like being reborn haha. and my brain swelled and bled a lot as i was saying and just bled out my right ear haha. it sounds terrible but i guess its normal for that injury. i could barely hear out of it at first cause the ear canal behind the ear drum was all filled up with blood and fluids but its been getting better and should be good in a month. and now that is all. my story wasn't all about acid but i wouldn't have gone through these experiences without it


mrstaples 3 years ago

Also I really do think it's the police's fault for injuring me. I hit and bled out of my head twice so why couldn't they have learned the first time i hit my head to be careful. I guess I was too out of my mind and it was like a life or death situation for me and they couldn't stop me until injuring my brain. They didn't know what else to do besides taze me. The only thing i did to them was they tackled me to the ground on my back and i kicked one in the chest and got back up. And they only got called on me for disturbing the peace. Not violence or anything
