The chances of you blowing your brains out is the same in each pull of the trigger, assuming a spin in between. The only time the bullets being adjacent will matter is if you keep pulling without a spin.
Of course, I am very likely wrong as statistics was never my strong suit.

If you pull and miss, there are only 4 chambers you could have attempted to fire from. Three of those chambers are followed by another empty chamber. One is followed by a chamber with a bullet in it.
So that gives you a 3 out of 4 chance of having another empty chamber if you don't spin. (3/4)
If you spin, assuming total randomness, you have a 2/6 chance of having a chamber with a bullet in it. (2/6 = 1/3)
So you have a 3/4 chance of not being shot if you don't spin, or a 2/3 chance of not being shot if you do spin.
Since 3/4 (.75) is larger than 2/3 (.66), you have a greater chance of not being shot (assuming you survived the first trigger pull) if you do not spin.
