Hi,

I've tried juggling under the influence of several drugs, and I must agree that at least some of them (mainly pot) have helped me to learn faster. It's a very usual that before we go to practice, we first smoke a joint. Pot helps me relax and keeps me from getting frustrated when I'm trying a new trick and dropping all the time.

Psychedelics are little different. I have found that I can get more easily to "the zone" (as Ferret calls it) but they work also the other way around; My thoughts can wander elsewhere in just matter of seconds and suddenly I lose it again (whoa what's that morphing letter doing on that wall ;).

Ecstacy, well, your best off juggling numbers :) And you'd probably have more fun dancing and talking your inner secrets to people so why even bother...

Alcohol and juggling don't mix. Dot.

One weird thing worth mentioning happened to me one time I was tripping on acid. It all started so that, well, we took absolutely too much of it. I was freaking out and crying, because I was pretty sure that I'd be ready for the mental hospital. When my friend had talked to me for while and got me to chill a bit (I was still sure that I had gone mad, but didn't think that crying or anything would help), I suddenly grabbed my acrylics (like an instict), and started doing palm spinning. I sit there for a moment, just spinning them, and after a while, started doing butterflies, body rolling and tossing. It was the juggling that convinced me "that I can still do something; that I can still function somehow" and helped me to recover from the frightening psychosis I was experiencing. After a while (and a relaxing walk outside), I found the trip pretty pleasant and enjoyed the ride.

Hmm... make your own conclusions from that...
