How do you know this? Or, are you confusing wishful thinking for reality? Remember, it's called 'Acid' for a reason.

If you feel like your in the right state of mind for an acid trip and youve done your research and kind of know what to expect then its totally up to you and not really for any of us to say you should or shouldnt. Its an experience, like skydiving etc. Drugs like this kind of force you to confront your problems, instead of avoiding them, i guess you could say alot of what phychedelics do is kind of make you reflect on how you live life. Many people can do that without drugs but some people cannot, and i believe it should be a personal choice.
Are you seriously comparing the use of LSD with skydiving?! Although i personally think jumping from an airplane is a bit nuts, it is a PHYSICALLY recreational activity, by which i mean the thrill is the physical sensation of being pulled thru the air by gravity at great speed (again, I think this is nuts).
Either your chute opens and you're ok, with absolutely no side effects or bodily changes, or you hit the earth and make a mess, in which case there's no repeat performance.
With LSD, the 'entertainment' is entirely chemically induced. The experience is caused by a chemical change in the brain. Those chemicals interact with the brain, and cause the sensations. Because they're internal, because the 'thrill' is entirely man made and happening artificially in your brain, there's also the unintended consequence of mucking the natural order of things up there,too. Remember, it's acid. You're putting acid into your brain. And the effects of doing this accumulate, you might not be aware of the subtle changes until many acid trips. It's like smoking. Most don't recognize the changes to their lungs for many years. Until they get cancer.

You're justifying your decision to continue LSD use, you're denying the reality of what the long term effects of LSD use are. Like smokers.
