AC Compressure cycling

Sorry about another thread about this but none of the other ones fit my question. My compressor is cycling about every 5 seconds and not kicking in. I can see that everybody is saying that the freon is low and to add some. I've even watched videos on it with the same condition. I'm worried about the level that the gauge is showing now. When the compressor isn't engaged the pressure is in the red around 80 and when it kicks in it drops quickly down into the yellow around 60 or so boarder-line red though.

I've placed about 1/2 of an 18oz can into the system and it is blowing cold now when I'm moving or giving it some gas but during an idle it blows air but is slightly cooler than before I started.

The main question do I ignore the pressure that I'm seeing and keep forcing freon into the system and hope that the compressor will eventually stay engaged.
