  1. Hello Everyone! I am new to this forum so thanks in advanced for taking the time to read this post and help me out. I truly appreciate it! Little background about my drug use. I first tripped LSD when I started college about 3 years ago. Since then, I've done acid about 20 times and shrooms twice. Last time I tripped was technically 7 months ago, but I had no visuals and a very very light body high. The time before that was about 10 months ago. I use cannabis almost every day. I have been dealing with some mild anxiety recently for about two months, and I've noticed more floaters and blue field phenomenon more than usual. Ive seen an eye specialist who says everything is fine. Sometimes if I zone out hard enough, I can see surfaces drifting and moving slightly. I can also see afterimages very quickly but only rarely if Im really anxious and that goes away when I calm down. I dont see trails, fractals, or feel any DP/DR. I feel dissociated slightly sometimes but I can get myself out of it and my psychologist says that has to do with my brain coping with anxiety and not possible HPPD. I guess my main question is, is it still possible for me to get HPPD if I abstain from any other psych use? (I know weed is a psychedelic, but Im talking about acid and shrooms). Im definitely not gonna trip ever again, and I dont think I have HPPD right now (and if I do, its very very mild and not noticeable when I'm calm). Is it possible to develop HPPD months or even years after psych use? Should I be abstaining from all other drugs (weed, alcohol, caffiene) to lower my risk? If anyone has ever developed HPPD so long after tripping, please share. Thanks for reading!

  3. @dayum_son Thanks a ton for your response! I'm pretty sure I don't have HPPD. People say that if your symptoms are not apparent enough that you dont have to look for them, then you probably dont have it. Since I am constantly "searching" for disturbances in my vision, I guess I dont have it. According to the other cases you were mentioning, what was the max amount of time someone has gone without symptoms showing up (how long was the onset)? 3 months? 6 months? Additionally, have you heard/read of anyone getting it 10 months after tripping or even later? Im trying to be reasonable because i know several people who have tripped and not cut out cannabis because they dont have HPPD. I am scared that I might develop it but how long do I have to go on living in fear before I know Im clear of ever developing it?
