    Nothing quite relaxes me and puts me in work mode like a cold Corona. I've always been a daily drinker. I guess you can call me a "functioning alcoholic". It makes repetitive tasks less boring, has made me buy domains to the point where I would say fuck it, and see through an idea I would not normally do. I've been in the IM game long enough to find a few things that have stuck and earned me money.. and now I'm at the point where it's rinse and repeat type stuff. I guess you can say I'm comfortable right now, and just scaling up. Juggling 3 projects right now, but doing fine.

    Anyone else like to crack a cold one, or mix some jack and coke while doing IM? I still work a 9 to 5, with a lot of down time in front of a computer, so even when I'm working, I'm working.. if that makes sense. Then I come home and do it some more, just in a more relaxed environment.

    Sure nothing wrong with a Jim Beam* and coke, Corona, or my favorite Guinness. I do not
    drink daily though because alcohol over time can be a depressant, nevertheless cutting a fresh
    cigar and enjoying it with a shot of whiskey is a hobby.

    Everything in moderation! :)

    From my own experience, I found that drinking slows me down. So I just
    drink coffee while IM'ing. Once in awhile I will go out and have a drink with
    a friend, but that is only on rare occasions.

    Me... got my best ideas when drinking while focusing on a new idea (basic idea exists then needs to be turned into a fully fledged concept). I don't drink at the computer tho, I take pen and paper, go to a place like a cafe or pub where it's not too noisy and just start... flows by itself after a while.
    I usually drink beer+coke then :D :D :D

    I drink energy drinks when I work.

    A beer is always great in the evening though. I save them for later because they make me sleepy as hell.

    I sometimes drink this when doing IM, but not much since the beer is hard to get lately. For many tasks it actually improves concentration and allows me to do more without over thinking stuff. Sometimes I need a boost to calm down unnecessary paranoia when doing certain projects.

    Not usually when working, but after wards... No door can hold me. Especially the fridge door.

    I work every day so if I start drinking while working, I will become an alcoholic for sure.
    Save the drinking for parties. I enjoy tea while doing IM ;)

    Every successful marketer should afford a glass of wine (or bottle of beer) a day. I found myself as a good english writer after one glass, though I am not native speaker.

    I am drinking one or two bottles of beer too while doing IM. It's just relaxing and makes me work more. Especially for a rinse and repeat work it goes really on the nerves and in these moments its just good to have a cold beer. love it.

    Crown and Diet Coke does just the trick to relax me enough to drudge through the some of the more tedious tasks.
