Do you post discussions UNDER the INFLUENCE?

do you find yourself posting on here after you have been drinking or taken cold meds or maybe if you have a migraine or running on no sleep to where its affecting your concentration?? the reason i ask is because some times it seems as if some discussions posted by people that are like distracted or they dont come out clear like they usually do for that person (not saying they are bad or anything and not saying any certain person.. just will notice every once in awhile a little difference in habit of people im used to etc.. doesnt bother me since i can figure it out anyways).. i know i get insomnia and migraines all the time so if i were to wait till i was fully rested and never had a headache to post on here i would never sign in lol.. i know later on some times i look back and see that i made more mistakes or maybe my idea just didnt come out clear like it would have in other situations but of course you dont notice it at the time lol.. so anyone else do this?? do you think your ok then realize later you sounded totally out of it etc??

Whether insomnia, migranine or even an headache affects your concentration. I also think that can happen during financial crisis, parenting a kid and worse if it is two, work pressures or even personal problems. All of us have one or the other. These definitely make us lose concentration. Some people would also like to take a break from this and start blogging. Though they blog, deep inside they would actually be thinking of all these and that's when there is no flow or make mistakes.

true stress can do the same.. guess no one can really say they have never posted under the influence since everyone is usually stressed at some point

I'm not a drinker, and when I'm sick I generally don't have the energy to post here. Still, though, I have to admit that sometimes I look at past posts I made and wonder to myself, "WHAT WAS I THINKING?!" Is it possible to post under the influence of something without knowing what that influence is? Maybe it's the moonlight...

I dont drink very often and when i do one drink tends to put me to sleep - so not while drinking. I have however posted while on painkillers or cold medication. I notice though if im tired my responses seem kind of wishywashy as well.

I never seem to make it to the second drink because it takes me hours to finish one drink.

Part of the reason why I have so many tabs opened in my browser is because I open them discussions when I am too tired to respond to them. But I still want to be able to participate in them. So I open them and leave them there till I can get around to them. No point trying to post a response or a reply if you are not even sure what you are reading or writing about. I ever wrote a whole long article on my blog. Published it and then read it later only to realise that I wrote nonsense. So I had to take down the article to re write it again to ensure it is what I originally intended to share. Better to be alert than to write nonsense and incur the wrath of the author of the thread or discussion. Cos I get absolutely fed up when I come across a post that is nonsensical.
