LSD helps to treat alcoholism ! What do you think?
An analysis of old studies suggests LSD may have a role to play in treating alcoholism.

The powerful hallucinogen LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) has potential as a treatment for alcoholism, according to a retrospective analysis of studies published in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
some more info in the blog...
Does anybody have experience with LSD ?

Bill W. used LSD years after forming AA.

LSD would be commonly perscribed for a variety of purposes today if West Point alcoholic Tim Leary had not stolen it from Sandoz to use for his wife swapping parties in the suburbs.

Yeah I have experience with it and only have one thing to ask:

You think it makes more sense to get off the alcohol by becoming addicted to LSD? No thanks.

Only way to treat this is to know one thing for a fact, one has to quit drinking and any other behavior which leads to drinking. One needs to attract people into their life who will never support their returning to drinking, will not encourage you to have "just one it won't hurt".

No, OP means LSD as in lysergic acid diethylamide. Cannabis is basically an introductory psychedelic. Cannabis has interesting properties and so do LSD, DMT, Ibogaine, Psilocybin, Mescaline, etc.

Re: LSD helps to treat alcoholism ! What do you think?
LSD was found to be helpful in the treatment of severe depression also. If given to end of life patients it greatly diminishes the fear of death.
I've never used LSD or shrooms but I 'd be interested in well sat experimentation before I leave this earth.

Acid dreams is a very interesting read on LSD. Government use and development and many studies captured within.

Re: LSD helps to treat alcoholism ! What do you think?
LSD will not help, and you don't treat alcoholism. You either stop or you die early, hopefully not taking anyone with you upon check out. Some need help with detox, others don't, everyone's pain and discomfort threshold is different as is their health upon the DECISION to quit.

Re: LSD helps to treat alcoholism ! What do you think?
From the personal experience of a family member, I can share that heavy LSD use as a teenager and young adult (friend was in a travelling, semi-successful rock band in the 1970's), results in permanently changing the brain in terms of serotonin uptake.

The person is 'hooked' on anything that duplicates the 'pleasure'.

This includes future alcohol addiction.

It goes both ways. The alcoholic wants drugs again.

So really, from the level of physiology, there is no difference between intoxicants of any kind.

What is not discussed by the medical literature, of course, are the social, empathic, and spiritual results of 'masturbating your mind' with hallucinogens... which include alcohol, for all intents and purposes.

The only treatment is abstinence, backed by the decision to totally renounce this form of self-destructive behavior.

The 'demon of drink' is very obvious:

- Violence
- Drunk driving (a form of unconscious death-wish/suicide)
- Collapse of inhibitions designed into human beings for self-preservation

So replace it with LSD and what do you have?

No answer is necessary.

Set and setting and quality is key.
Honestly I'm chicken to try but interested in altered trips of the mind.
I think the veil is thinner in this state.
Why shamans used hallucinogens since early time.

I also think extreme caution needs to be used with drugs that take you on a ride.
