I do lots of coding software and enjoy a dark beer when I get home in the evenings.
But man, my brain functioning drops off a cliff. I can hardly code anything intelligent, but it sure relaxes me at the time.
Some days I just don't drink because i know I've got work to do and a beer although enjoyable destroys my ability to think sharply big time.

I don't smoke or take drugs.
I work very long hours and fear it is turning me into a boring old fart, constantly work at a computer day and night.

For the mods, this is a serious question, and of course not meant to encourage or glamorize use of any illegal drugs.

... clues to observe any patterns.

Fwiw, I've never gotten high, if that isn't already obvious.

Mr A;
Sure- IBD/William O 'Neill taught all his readers/deciples to ''buy high'']Above 200 day ma.LOL but true.

Same with Rch Dennis;
buy high & and sell the low, because trends may extend.LOL but true.Not a prediction, wisdom is profitable to direct.

This post has nothing to do with drugs but i do buy high[good uptrend.] I am addicted to water;
i recommend that addiction highly.

red wine is healthy in moderation
I'm a recovering alcoholic, but yes, I would like to have a glass of red and a filet now and then.

That's so true!

I'll have an urge when at a nice steakhouse, but ginger ale keeps me alive vs the alternative.

To quote my old boss (an old CBOT trader):

When I got started in this business, there were three kind of people on the floor - the Ginnies, the Irish and the Jews. Irish would drink like fish, Italians would do coke. Jews? Jews would do both!
