    Hello, ya'll.

    I know it sounds farfetched - and it is. For years I've had ADD and ADHD but I refuse to get on adderol or ritalin. I was on that shit as a kid and I remember just being a zombie at school. Shit makes me sick even thinking about it.

    I recently started drinking a little bit when I'm studying. I don't necessarily get drunk, but I get to the point where I start to feel that 'buzzed' feeling, maybe a little more. Whether it's beer or liquor, it just helps me calm down and focus.

    So far it's worked. I've gone from a 2.0 GPA, to a 3.97 GPA average the past 3 semester, with even harder classes.

    I try so hard not to abuse it because I have friends that have dropped out of school because they have drinking problems.

    Anyone done this with school? Anyone done this with IM'ing or anything else?

    PS: Also, if anyone could find any information or study supporting this, let me know.

    hmm I drink all the time when IM'ing... as far as studying the books goes that another story. good question about the evidence supporting the theory.

    I do know they say if you study drunk then you have to take the test drunk etc in order to achieve maximum results. There is plenty of evidence behind that idea.

    I'm often drinking or smoking weed with friends before long/boring lectures ( my university is kinda strange when it comes to arranging timetables - for example this term i have mon-friday free, but 7 hours at thrusday and 11 at fridays ( ending lessons at 9 PM SUCKS. ). One just can't survive 4 hour lecture about memory management in various systems sober...

    never tried using liquor for that purpose but ive always found weed to work. when i was still in highschool, i'd smoke some weed before i got to school the day of a big test and i always made better grades than when i was straight. when im high, what im dealing with at the time just seems like my focus locks onto it and everything else is blocked out lol.

    Ya. I smoke weed before I go to sleep sometimes. I have insomnia and I have tried all sorts of sleeping pills, depression pills and other things but NOTHING worked. There would be times where I would be up for around 72 hours without sleeping.

    A friend of mine said when he smoked weed, it made him tired. So I tried it and it worked like a charm.

    I've probably smoked it this school year since the fall, maybe 20 times? I bought an ounce at the begininng of the fall semester and I still have most of it left. I don't think I've smoked and actually got crazy high.


    Haha, someone reading these posts probably thinks I'm like fucked up all the time, but I'm defintley not.

    This is plain stupid. You can't be more focused while drunk then when sober.

    Go and try climb a mountain while drunk. You won't survive.

    I said I drink, I don't get drunk. Big difference. I don't even remember the last time I got drunk. Maybe 2 years ago?

    I take a shot or two, study homework and/or study.

    I don't think it's fair to judge if you haven't tried it or if you don't go to school at all.

    yea lol i watched that on 4:20 on g4. all the test that he did, he got better results when he was high than when he was straight. all the usefulness of weed and its still illegal... when is the government going to wake the fuck up. alcohol is legal and it has worse effects on your body than most illegal drugs. its bullshit...

    Years ago (late 80's or early 90's) a group of researchers
    from a well known uni tested the RECALL of 100 people whom
    they gave a few beer ... then had them study ... then the
    next day they tested them. THEY DID HORRIBLE.

    Then they gave them the same amount of booze
    and THEY DID VERY WELL on the test, better than
    another group who did not during before/during study.

    So get drunk, study in your relaxed state with no distractions
    then get drunk and write your exams and I'll see you at MIT.

    You obviously never were on a mountain. It looks easy on the TV huh? That exact attitude that you have would kill you on a mountain. If you think you're superman and lack respect from the rock it will quickly teach you a lesson. I'm not here for a pissing competition. If you need that you can take on another member.

    I'm not saying it can't help a person learn, but I am saying that nothing can compare to a really sober mind. If you need drugs to help you learn, then the proper question you should ask yourself is why you need it.
