Is alcohol contraindicated with LSD?
Q: For a first-time user of LSD, what kind of effect would alcohol have on a small dose (one hit)?

A: Although there appears to be little pharmacological danger from the combination of alcohol and LSD, many people who have combined the two report feeling significantly less to no effect from the alcohol, and therefore don't feel that there is any reason to add alcohol to LSD. The dampened effects of the alcohol could cause one to over indulge, increasing the likelihood of a hangover the next day.

There is also the danger that a person may feel as though he or she is 'safe to drive,' due to not noticing the full effects of the alcohol, even though their blood-alcohol level may be well beyond the legal limit. In any case, driving while on acid alone is strongly discouraged!

Finally, when taking any psychoactive drug for the first time (or first few times), many people feel that it is prudent to stick to that single substance, so that they can get a better overall sense of its effects, before seeing how it interacts with something else.
