How LSD Addiction Affects the Brain

LSD is a serious drug that is normally used recreationally to create a high. Users can develop a tolerance for LSD, which requires users to abuse LSD more frequently and with more substance to achieve the same high. This makes for a very dangerous situation, especially considering overdose, which can be fatal. LSD affects the brain by creating hallucinations. However, if you are abusing LSD then you should do some research on the long-term effects that LSD can have on your brain.

Long-Term Effects of LSD Abuse

The long-term effects of abusing LSD are all very serious and some may even be fatal. These include but are not limited to the following:

  • Mood swings
  • Flashbacks
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Violent tendencies

Because the very basis of LSD is to mess with your brain, LSD can affect the brain in a negative way. It’s never okay to trick your brain with drugs, especially hallucinogenic drugs. LSD can also make your brain think that you must have LSD. This is a large part of addiction. Your brain will keep telling you that you need LSD, and without proper help you will most likely give in to these cravings eventually. LSD addiction is something that you may not be able to beat without the right professional help.

Immediate Effects of LSD

LSD can give you the hallucinatory high that you may be searching for. But you should also be aware that you could receive what’s called a “bad trip” when you abuse LSD. These “bad trips” can become very serious very quickly. These can create extreme panic and anxiety in the abuser. If you find yourself on one of these “bad trips,” you may lose all control of yourself and wind up hurting yourself or others without ever knowing what you’re doing. LSD makes you lose the logical sense in your brain that you should always have. LSD affecting your brain can be a very dangerous thing for you and those around you.
