Bobby6string, or stringman (sounds good too), You and I both know that we are not going to study maths again to play better.
About "playing better" after a few drinks, it is perfectly normal, but it can end in a bad situation.
Alcohol, and "illegal" drugs take away a certain limit. You will feel it for yourself, after, but not too much, a few vodka's, beers are enough to play more relax. You have to pay attention if you like: somebody who drunk MORE THAN ENOUGH, will have almost no injuries when he falls down: because of the relaxation of the muscles, where a "sober" man, falling the same way, is trying, or is contracting his muscles followed by injuries. I don't need a drink, compared to 5 years ago, I was too shy to play in public, even to speak in public, but I changed: MORE ASSERTIVE: I was always saying yes, still working as a Doc, and somebody phoned me to come, I did come. But when I started again, my phone line was coming out on my cellular so I could talk to the people personally, and avoiding a lot of calls, moved them to the day after, I could have a "fast" diagnosis, just by asking a few things. But this were remains of who I was before my car crash.
I worked always very late, 15 hours a day was nothing, I had too much work, and because of my since 1996 ex-wife, a fantastic excuse to hide me behind my job.
