    Being intoxicated in any form can always inspire a different wave of the thought but sobriety is better for the final thought in my opinion

    idk, sometimes i write better while being tipsy. i think it depends on the mood, not only your condition

    I've always found a few drinks not to hurt. Sometimes it loosens me up a bit. I think it depends on the vibe of the song though. And it's a fine line for productivity you walk. You could be feeling loose and creative on a few, but then the more you go the less you get done. There's a quote for writers that says, "Write drunk, edit sober," but I don't think whoever said it was being very literal. I think it means pour all your ideas out loosely and polish them up later. Interpret it how you like.

    Myself it depends on what stage of producing I am in. If I am trying to write some lyrics I like to have a drink or 2. I especially like to have a drink when I have to record self vocals. When it comes to Making the base tracks I prefer sobriety to help focus while keeping creativity. My doctor prescribes me adderall and I find that helps in almost all stages of creation, ESPECIALLY MASTERING O.O, though it also tends to make me feel a bit less creative and more methodical. So it really depends on my hourly/daily goals.

    When Im loaded I just need my notes handy and a clear plan of operation or I would get lost in the sauce and probably make some weird ass shit.

    In my opinion sober or maye a few beers, cause I dont know how can anyone concentrate to write, and i think its bs, that you need to be high to be more creative, it is all just in your head!

    I like to produce with my rapper friends while we all party; seems to always end up with a banger.
    But if I sit and smoke alone i'll make some vibes.
    Trying to make beats drunk, high, or sober has variable results both positive and negaive,
    but don't let it be a crutch for which you can only make music under the influence.

    You'll never know until you try both. Just don't forget what you did with your work once you come down :-) I suspect you won't do as well drinking as being slightly stoned (not shitfaced), just enough to make you think differently.
