Doing Drugs, Cigarettes, Drinking while playing UO

    Do you do it?

    If so, do you feel it makes you play better?

    I hope not, because it does not. Drunk pvp'ers are always the worst, make stupid mistakes and distrupt teamspeak/vent by fighting/laughing/being annoying. However drunk solo'ers can be funny and of course the purpose of the game is to have fun.

    Potheads are subdued and don't care about anything making them bad/distruptive (laughing all the time) players as far as teamwork/guild play, but lots of people like to get high and solo PvP for fun.

    Cigarettes do nothing but raise your blood pressure, heartrate, etc.. and you are holding the stupid cancer stick which is a distraction.

    I don't drink. Don't like the "high".

    I'll leave it the rest to your imagination to keep this post "family-friendly"....If it adds to my entertainment, sure, why not? That's what a play a GAME for anyway...entertainment and relaxation. I'm not logging on to be a moral compass for some mislead youth. I'd prefer the game be adult-only, anyway. =)

    well that doesn't have anything to do with it. the question is whether your pot smoking reduces your abilities.

    one of my oldest uo experiences when over guild chat while doing a rpg event someone wrote the following.

    OMFG GTG my trash can next to my comp is on fire!!

    At first this was a funny throw away comment but later I found out he had tossed a still lit cigerate in his trash can.

    I would also add that in my early days of playing I was hooked on painkillers (and now three years clean) and I would say bye some comments bye other idocers after I got sober that they liked it better when I was on them...

    So I would guesse that mean I wasnt exactly on top of my game.
     
  17. I like to drink, must be why I have a tavern in game. Best name I could think of while drunk was "The Staggering Mongbat Ale Hole". Though it has a great name, I never have the time to get it open and running to the public. (for tavern nights). There is of course a difference between drinking and being drunk. Drinking you can pvp, being drunk you cannot. Being drunk you can sort bods (and forget you sorted them in the morning!!!!), drinking you can still sort bods but you remember it in the morning.

    I do enjoy tobacco pipes and cigarettes, but not while playing.

    Won't touch anything illegal never will, seen too many people fall off the edge of the server borders so to say.

    As for making you play better or worse EVERYTHING makes you play worse the way your looking at it. Except maybe cigarettes, they were doing studies where I lived on how smoking helps you focus and concentrate better!

    Blue is the high dollar scotch right? For the Walker family. I have paid over a hundred dollars for a fine scotch. It is worth it. *nods*

    I have been in vent with Elvis when he is paying bills online and playing the game. Just my opinion but Luna and drinking go hand in hand.
    I always tell my wife to stop buying perfume and makeup and just get me drunk, it has the same effect!!

    Short answer: no.

    In the middle of a harry one night my cellphone went off. When I reached for it, I knocked my beer off my desk and onto my modem, instantly frying it. It took me almost 2 weeks to get a new one through the mail.

    Also about 5 years ago a buddy of mine hooked me up with some shrooms during 4th of july. About 3 hours into the fun I logged into UO. I couldnt even figure out which button to hit to open my bank. I think I spent about 45 min running around in circles before my friend came in and rescued me. The next day when i logged on I was missing half my suit including my hat of the magi. Not sure what the hell i did with it.

    If I drank while playing UO, I would never find my body...

    I have enjoyed playing online card games while being close to stinking drunk. I had a lot of fun but my ratings suffered.

    Heck Tiger I do that sober! *grins*

    Kelmo....that sexy smile of yours gets me every time *laughs*

    Now where did I put that darn bottle......
     
  47. I don't...

    Actually, my employer does random drug testing because being under the influence of anything is a major job hazard (to yourself and others)

    1. I don't smoke in my house. Its bad for electronics (and everything else), and since I happen to have an affinity for electronics that are ussually sensitive to that sort of thing, I smoke outside. Plus I've bleached the walls in here and I really don't feel like doing it again.

    2. I don't drink at home. There's no reason (unless you're having a party, in which case you won't find me on UO). I reserve that for going out and such, and if I end up home drunk I ussually sit on the couch and watch TV.

    3. I don't smoke pot. I have but after getting stoned a lot when I was younger I began to dislike how i felt on it, so now I don't. I don't mind people using it at all. Personally I don't see the harm in recreational use of ANY drug actually as long as its used recreationally.
