It generally established that neither LSD nor Psilocybin are "addictive" at all. Not even psychologically.
In fact, it is one of the mysteries of these substances: Those who have used them in ways other than just for shits and giggles have found the experience to alter their perceptions of their personal ways of living, but almost never in any negative way.
I say "almost never" because no matter how complete a set of results are, when you are dealing with the human psyche there seems to always be one that does not conform to the constant.
The truth is that you cannot become addicted to LSD nor to any similar substance because they won't work in the same way tomorrow. Unlike alcohol, you must wait a significant period of time before it will "work" again, psychoactively.
Flash has provided detailed info about this in previous posts, and the EROWID sites I have mentioned and the one he specifically used in this post will clear up just about any question one might have encompassing the old "fear factor".
For anyone who has developed or held unkind or suspicious beliefs about these substances (I wish there was a better term for them) it only requires one, clinically-directed experience to completely clear up all of those specific misunderstandings.
I personally know of well over a hundred individuals who have used them intentionally. Only ONE of them has expressed a regret for doing so, and his experience was while on an outing with several others who deliberately and mischievously scared the hell out of him. That is not a "trip" you will get in a pain clinic nor from caring friends who are on your side.
