Shifting an auto?

ok i got a 4-speed auto and you know how they got the lower gears 1 and 2? well (lol) i speed shift like i put it down in 1 and shift at 30-~40 mph to 2 and 55-~65 mph in to drive...i have race it both ways against a v6 sebring and was a car length way from the car when i was speed and about 2 car lengths away when i wasn't. the only problem is that i heard that when you speed shift it hurts the transmission is that true?

Foci> <civics

Hopefully (when i gat some money will put in a new and improve t3/t4 turbo system!!!
