i just noticed that alot of online players enjoy smoking pot as well i am also one of them players and although it weakens my awareness i find it helps my patience and makes the badbeats almost seem like they never happened my question is i wonder if any of the online pros get high throughout the grind of mtts? ive heard that lots do at the live tourneys.

I agree with your assessment that although it weakens (a little bit) your awareness, it helps your patience. I believe that the increase in patience more than compensates for the slightly diminished awareness. I don't smoke anymore and am overall a much better and productive person because of it, but when I did, I was a much better poker player.

if you dont have a problem using drugs you should use adderall instead. it does all those thing plus strengthens your awareness, makes you not have the munchies and makes you stay awake for long periods instead of making you sleep for 12 hours.

There was a thread about this on twoplustwo a while back, and apparently, a lot of live pros tend to get high in their car before they play, and the general consensus was that it made their game worse overall. Getting into taking drugs to help your game can send you down a slippery slope. While smoking up recreationally or blowing off steam with your buddies by having some drinks is fine in moderation, both live and online players commonly take Xanax and Adderall, which if abused can become dangerous. Lastly would probably be street Meth, of which the consumption among players has died down considerably, for good reason.

Anything is fine as long as you have balanced lifestyle. Problem is that if you take something, like adderal or that you're smoking pot before a sesh, you might find yourself in a spot where you force the drug into your routine so that it ends up with you feeling like: I need a hit before I play a sesh bc that's what I always do. And then, you're addicted. And it's helluva lot easier getting addicted than getting out of an addiction. Long term, smoking will have very negative results on your mental well being, since it's very easy for addictions to spiral, meaning it's easy to substitute a light addiction to a more heavy addiction, but it's not as easy going the other way.

I smoked pot everyday for 12isch years, nowdays i smoke a couple of times a year at the most.

Can´t say it either helped or made my play worse tbh. What i do know is that im quicker of mind nowdays regarding doing math in my head and i remeber alot more hands and such from each session.

Go ahead and smoke if u like, somehow it will get u in trouble tho, it sure did for me.

No, opiates is never good for playing poker... or for life either...
All ins, are overrated!!

It's pretty common knowledge that the Rio parking lot during the WSOP is just a big weed smoking lounge. Also many high stakes players readily admit to smoking. Although its more of an MTT thing than a cash game thing. I get aderall from my doctor and I absolutely think it helps with poker. As for the weed, online yes, live no haha.
