LSD is the most powerful drug in the category hallucinogens, being sold in different forms, colors, shapes and doses. The molecule of this odorless power can be found growing in fungus on rye and in some grains. It closely resembles a serotonin neurotransmitter, which is also apart of the reward system. When the acid gets into your system, it attaches itself to the serotonin receptors on their post-synaptic neuron and takes the place of the neurotransmitter, giving off a stimulant. This continuous stimulation can either inhibit or excite these receptors, which is why you may experience a vary of sensory effects in the duration of your high.
Taking LSD can give you different feelings. The drug is binding with different receptors, which is why the user will never know what "trip" they will experience. Some short term mental affects are fear, anxiety, confusion, aggression and many more depending on your "trip". Users may experience a difficult time concentrating,depending on the quantity and quality of their current hallucination. LSD can affect your memory short term and long term, it can also can cause confusion between recent and long-forgotten memories making them feel like they are in the present. After many years of taking LSD, some may experience "flashbacks." This means that even though you may not have LSD in your system anymore, it can still lead very visual memories to come up. A long term mental effect can be psychosis or some sever mental disorders that can impair your thoughts and emotions in which you may no longer feel like you are in reality.

Almost every drug out there causes physical affects to your body, whether or not its visible it still may be damaging your internals. Even medicine such a Benadryle or Advil can harm you if you take enough. The physical effects of LSD are numbness, dilated pupils, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, dry mouth, chills, weakness, increased blood pressure or heart rate and decreased coordination.
Users will experience different emotions depending on which serotonin receptor the LSD particle has binned with. It can be either inhibitory ("bad trip") or excitatory ("good trip"). Your mood will change dramatically when you are hallucinating as well. If its a good "trip" the user will feel excitement and joy, but if its a bad "trip," also known as a psychedelic crisis, can cause many mood swings such as aggression or anxiety. This can cause sudden panic attacks and you may be trying to run away from what is frightening you, which then can lead to serious injury or death.
If loss of concentration occurs when taking LSD, this can change the way you interact with others. Since you may not be concentrating on your surroundings, and therefore not be responsive to the person that is talking to you, this can vary well cause a loss of social skills, friends, or even the want to be around non users. If a frequent user of LSD develops psychosis, this will have a big impact of their social life because they feel like they are not living in reality. If the user feels like they are in another world, it can impact their relationship with those who mean a lot to them. They won't be interacting with them as much, nor would the friend want to.
LSD is not considered an addictive drug, simply because someone can take it for a while before developing some sort of attachment. Because your body never really get's used to this drug, it does not produce compulsive drug seeking behavior like other drugs, such as cocaine or nicotine. If a person stops for a couple of days and starts taking it again, it will then start to have affects on your body. Just because LSD isn't addicting does not mean it won't effect you in negative ways, and because it could be a different high every time, your best bet to safety would be to avoid it all together.
