I read that Jim Morrison of The Doors fame would eat LSD "pillets" like Chicklettes.
I don't know exactly how to answer such a broad question because I am not a doctor or expert, but I'll answer in terms of my experience, and others are welcomed to chime in their experience and thoughts or medical information.
My flashbacks can occur at any time. For instance, yesterday I was sitting at my computer and the hall light all the sudden got a halo around it. Right now, no halos around it. It seems certain things can set it off also. If I drink too much caffeine, the lights grow halos and trails and I become real anxious. I also noticed that when I was on Zoloft, it seemed to be a daily thing, so I'm guessing that medication has an effect on flashbacks. Sometimes when I listen to music, I get tranced, but no so often anymore and I think that it has more to do with my experience than anything, so I don't really count that as a flashback.
My wife said that I wasn't the same person. I've noticed that I'm quicker to anger and frustration, but thanks to counseling, I'm getting that under much better control. Also, the first mornings after I took LSD, I would hear voices like I was going skitzo. Now I don't hear any voices, but I do dream more vivid than I have ever before. I dream like crazy!
And yea, I bet he did drop them like candy! Party like a rockstar!
