In a truly mind-bending acid flashback, a new study reports that LSD could help alcoholics kick their addiction. Based on a new analysis of six randomized controlled trials from the 1960s and 70s, and published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, researchers from Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Harvard Univeristy found that a single dose of the hallucinogen “had a significant beneficial effect on alcohol misuse” for up to 12 months.

Hmmmmmm...

A pretty rough solution. But maybe, if it works.

Can LSD Cure Alcoholism?


I don't think it can....every time that I did it, I drank beer like water and liquor went down way too easy and often.The buzz only lasted for 8 to 10 hours and that's enough time to drink yourself silly normally, but on that mess I couldn't have gotten a alcohol buzz even if I had wanted to.


I wonder why I even drank while I was on that stuff if it didn't effect me?

Now something natural like shrooms is a different story

Acid makes the mundane become interesting.



It also makes your skin crawl.


I have no idea why people become addicted to alcohol, coke, cigarettes, or anything. If I understood it, I would probably be addicted to something. Some people have addictive traits (prone to addictions) and some dont.

Altered consciousness is attained through many means including the release of chemicals in our own bodies and people have sought to enhance awareness as well as dull their senses through these practices throughout human history.

Maybe these monkeys could use a hit of acid.

Don't tell the zealots about animals self-medicating. They won't believe it even when it's presented to them.

I drank a lot of water or pepsi myself.
Of course, the real LSD was very hard to find.

Everyone I knew taking LSD were also drinking like fishes at the same time. Really doubt that's a cure.

I drank some back in the day when I was on LSD. The flashing lights and patterns I got made me think I was flashing back to my favorite bar sign, so naturally, I had to go find it!!

This isn't too far-fetched an idea. Remember thalidomide? It turns out the drug that caused countless birth defects overseas (it was never approved for use in the US) is actually quite effective in treating the wasting issues in late stage AIDS patients, and was approved for use in the US for limited use in those individuals. One never knows what a compound will proof useful.
