I rarely used caffeine on tournament day, and then usually a flat soda or two. Water, fruit, and adrenaline usually gave me enough energy. My partner, on the other hand (between super-strength coffee and no-doz) was taking the caffeine equivalent of 12-16 cups of coffee every day...

i run on pure adrenili and bags of licorice, its kind of tradition for me to practiccly inhale black liccorice, this coupled with addrenilin and 2 liters of coke make me very skittish, i'm already very skittish without them, but on a debate day a flinch at everything and some of me is always constantly moving.

I roll with water and a power bar. If it can get me through swim meets, a debate round should be no problem. See, most drugs/sugar dehydrate you considerably, making your mouth dry and your words hard to understand - which is bad no matter how fast you are going. The double breath won't help either.

I don't debate on anything other than some energy drinks. But in answer to the which came first debate or drugs question, I must say I started smoking weed thru debate.

If it's not too late, I'd suggest re-posting this poll with that rule in there at the start of the poll...

 

And "18.37% of the 52.4% who have used drugs have used alcohol, and so on." is wrong...18.7% of ALL voters...

for example: 5 people voted LSD. 5/144=3.47%

eh, My speed flies when I'm on red bull, but that's all I do.

 

I've always wondered about the number of debaters who smoke, actually. I mean, I've had people marvel at the fact that I don't smoke. It's not a question of ethics (I don't give a damn if you smoke, half my team does), it's just more that I really don't see the point. It's a stick of chemicals that I don't stick in my mouth and inhale. So what?
