At that very moment I swore never to fish stoned, any reductions to sensory and reflexive data analyses and actions is NOT acceptable...

And on the opposite end of the spectrum, if take a couple of hits, without getting stoned out of my gourd, I feel more attuned to my lure and my retrieve. I feel like I notice subtle hits more often and I quiet down my presentation, rather than being my normal spastic self. 

 

I used to like smoking a little when I skied. Skiing would get very zen. I'd feel one with the slopes and the moguls. :)

coffee + a good poop

Yep!   

As far as coffee. I don't care. I usually drink instant anyways.  Just put a ton of cream in the gnarliest gas station brew and I'm happy. 

 

But the trifecta of AM Awesomeness would be a egg sandwhich on a poppy seed roll with lettuce tomato hotsauce & mayo.

I use to smoke up before and think that i was more in tuned and on my game but after i quit i realized it was just the opposite and my reactions are so much faster now.

I drink a cup of coffee( i like grinding my own bean and use a french press) and eat my cinnamon toast crunch cereal and i'm good to go.

Unfortunately, yes. I smoked cigarettes for 10+ years as well, but took Chantix to quit and haven't looked back. If there was a similar pill for the whacky tobaccy I would take it too. As much as I love the stuff leading research seems to say chronic users are more likely to suffer from an early heart attack

Well i smoked ciggies for 20 yrs so i got you beat. But i somehow managed to quit 30 yrs ago. No such addiction to weed, lukewarm on it at best.

What coffee gets your vote:th:

I’m not picky, dunks or even Starbucks is good for me. But night shift roasts some great coffee and I like shopping local

Sadly, after a lifetime of 3 cups a day, I developed a sensitivity to caffeine. I had a scary ER trip after too many extra larges on an all nighter on the water. Left two of my boys sitting stressed out in the waiting room thinking I was having a heart attack (I did too but I wasn't).

 

Now I have to be real careful and drink decaf with just one scoop of regular to bring it down to 25% strength. Makes all nighters difficult and the long drives home more so.

Winning strategy right there. Can't tell you how many early morning fishing trips have been ruined by nature calling

 

A number of canal fishers have been known to carry a wad of paper towels and/or pre-moistened cleansing wipes in the event nature calls while down on the riprap.

After years of trying most brands, I've finally settled on Peet's coffee for my home brew.  Specifically, the dark roast, Major Dickason's Blend.

I'm almost entirely off hot coffee. I made the switch to iced. Drink it almost exclusively.  

Before fishing I buy a 32oz, add expresso if possible. The trick is to drink it fast. All 32oz in under 10 minutes. I like that quick caffeine rush, esp late at night.   If I'm out just drivin around, I'll skip the espresso, and sip it in leisurely.

Curious Bob.  Unless it's that junky C store up at the bus stop, what other stores are open late at night in your immediate area to buy a 32 oz coffee?  Macarther Blvd?.

The Joe G quiz is in play, be careful how you answer follow up questions to come if the answer is not up to Inspector Gadgets standards!

DD in Buzzards Bay is open 24 hours, not to mention there's a DD or Starbucks practically every 5 miles from Cape Cod to Worc.

Truth be known, in a pinch Cumbies has a decent ice coffee, and it's only $1.

Ah, yes drinking it all the time. Like Cumby's says make it like you take it. Me Farmhouse Blend a little ice and light cream and I can drink right away. Summer when it ever comes works too. You can fill your cup with ice and the coffee is strong enough to hold up. Love Cumby's and 1 /2 the price and it is made the way you want it.
