How does it feel like to be under the influence of drugs? People who don't do drugs can never understand the feeling. Those who do drugs know it but they find it extremely difficult to explain. People use different kinds of recreational drugs from marijuana, cocaine, heroin to LSD to get 'high', which is a phenomenon of consciousness being altered. Of all the drugs, LSD is the most powerful hallucinogenic drug. A Swiss chemist named Albert Hoffman discovered LSD while he was working on a medicine to treat common cold. 
What makes LSD (acid) different? It causes hallucinations. It completely alters the way your mind perceives things. The LSD experience or 'trip' is no less than a deeply disturbing horror story for an ordinary person. A typical acid trip lasts 10 to 12 hours.
A woman drew 11 self-portraits of her during her first acid (LSD) trip while a friend was there with her all the time. The pictures are an accurate depiction of hallucinations people go through when they are on drugs like LSD. 
1.Before any Effect

By the time she drew the first portrait, she had consumed 200µg of LSD. It takes twenty to forty minutes for the acid to kick in. She was quite normal at this time.

You can clearly see that she started to see things differently. Usually during an acid trip, after a couple of hours, powerful psychedelic effects start to set in.
