One of the harshest truths today is Facebook addiction. It doesn’t matter whether you are a middle aged person or a teenager trying to be cool and smart on the internet, the social media addiction is a rude fact that applies to everyone. Right from the time we log in to our computers or laptops, the very first and also the last tab that we close is invariably Facebook. Despite despising social media for making us unproductive and even dumb, we struggle to stay away from it.

But someone finally seems to have found a solution reports suggest. The answer to cutting away from Facebook is having a very small dose of LSD for breakfast. Yes, it does sound like an obnoxiously insane solution but there is a rational reasoning behind it. The concept of taking LSD is called microdosing which was initiated by psychedelics researcher Dr. James Fadiman who is considered a towering figure in the psychedelic research arena. He is also the author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide which beautifully illuminates the use of sacred medicine.

According to a story published in Metro, a writer working with psychedelics researcher Dr James Fadiman – who worked with LSD until it was banned until 1966 – took a tiny dose of LSD for breakfast… and found that he gave up Facebook. Sharing his impressive experience, author Baynard Woods said, ‘The most remarkable effect of the microdose, which I noticed on the first day, was that it broke — or significantly disrupted — my addiction to the internet. Like many people, I often find myself scrolling aimlessly through Facebook when I tell myself I’m too tired for anything else. But that day, I stayed away from it almost completely. I didn’t really want to go online much the next day either. I didn’t avoid the internet entirely. I could still go online and do the tweeting and email I needed to do for work, but it wasn’t compulsive. I could take it or leave it. It felt great.’

Well in that case, LSD sure needs a legal comeback than ever.
