I find few things more obnoxious than smug ignorance and contrariness for its own sake, and I'm done encouraging you. Go display your incredible brilliance and vast knowledge to someone who cares....

So to be clear, you're saying that you had flashbacks while you were an LSD user, and they stopped when you were no longer using it?

Wouldn't a flashback be something that happens much later? Not just between frequent trips? Your experience sounds different than what others seem to describe as a flashback.

I had several LSD flashbacks when I was a younger man. Most were minor, but mainly I experienced the synesthesia effects and disorientation. l had one severe flashback that lasted a couple of hours that occurred about a year after I had stopped using all intoxicants. As others have submitted, my flashbacks tapered off and I have not had any experiences like that in 20+ years. I am a very stable person, fortunate enough to have not experienced trauma of any kind and have had a very happy and healthful life so far. I never had a bad trip, I drink in moderation, I don't have an addiction of any kind. Explain it how you will, but the experience was convincingly real and I don't believe I would have had those experiences had I never experimented with LSD.

I have never liked kombucha, but as soon as I find my old vinyl of Electric Ladyland and Aoxomoxoa, I'm heading to Whole Foods

Fascinating. Not one of you have reached out to ask MY opinion. Seriously?

For the OP, this was after a workout - I think you had low blood sugar.

How did they usually begin?
How did they usually end?
Was there anything different between a flashback and a trip?
How would you know which it was while it was happening?
How long after your first LSD did they begin?
How many times did you take LSD before they began?
Did you continue to take LSD after you had your first "Flashback"?
If so, Why?

Where were you when your flashbacks bagan?
Were you alone?

Have you ever suffered migraine headaches?
Have you ever had anyform of epilepsy?
Were you ever around someone with easy access to a large amount of LSD?

Have you ever worked for the goverment?

What other drugs have you taken?
(all, illegal and otherwise )
Where you ever addicted to any drugs?
Have you ever been diagnosed as having a mental illness?

What were your LSD trips like?
(give a real example)

What were your LSD flashbacks like?
(give a real example)

Have you ever drank alcohol?
Were you a drinker during your LSD use?
Were you a drinker during your "flashback stage" ?

Were you ever an alcoholic?
Have you ever tried to stop drinking?

After taking LSD did you see things that were not there?
Did you hear voices?

During a "flashback", did hear any voices?
What sort of things or visual disturbances did you experience?

Did you enjoy your LSD trips?
Did you enjoy your "flashbacks"?

Why did you stop taking LSD?
Would you like to take it again someday?

A serious investigator would want to know a lot about you and your mind.
Are you kidding? What sort of mind thinks answering a list of 31 questions is a 'concise summary'?

I'm surprised you didn't ask whether I was wearing underwear or going commando at the time....

My experience seems to dovetail very nicely with that described by masonsjax, in the post immediately following yours:

That is more than enough.

We do not allow discussion of illicit activities here, and this has gone on far too long.
