    If I did drugs and drank alcohol, I wouldn't be able to afford knives.

    I don't recall someone asking this question before in GD.
    Probably a better topic for places we don't mention in the open forum ;)

    However, now that I've taken a look and thought about it, most of mine were purchased with at least a slight buzz going.
    Hell, most of my time on Blade Forums I've got at least a buzz. ;)
    I think it's only natural that my time spent chilling is the same time spent browsing blades.:D
    A little drink, a little smoke, and lots and lots of knives are a nice way to end the day.
    I have no intentions of asking anyone what's in their glass or rolled up in their cigar.
    Just enjoy blades and substances responsibly and it's all good! :cool:

    Heavy drinking and smoking are bad, you gotta find the right balance of blades and booze
    With the scale tipped heavily towards knives of course!!!

    Sober 313 days. Not a drop. I actually bought a lot less knives when I was drinking a lot, now they help keep the focus off the booze among other things.

    I've never purchased a knife because I was drunk or high, but I have had quite a few that I was considering where I finally ended up pulling the trigger after my evening beverage ;)

    I wanted to buy a Buck Marksmen for years. I never actually bought until I had a couple of beers and saw it on sale.

    Now I carry it everywhere!

    Pretty much all of them! I smoke weed all day, everyday. It's my hobby as well. I love to watch them grow from seed to fat sticky dank buds!! It's legal where I live so....no drinking since 07 -13 years alcohol free and 4 years no cigs.

    If I got drunk, I would be worried what I bought...I would not have any memory!!

    Most of my knives over 200 bucks were bought in a state of limited inhibitions, let's put it like that.

    i tend to play with knives under the influence more than buy them under the influence.

    and that's how you cut up your feet by dropping a balisong on them.

    Buying stuff is the high! I'll take dopamine over booze any day. :D

    I've purchased several knives from eBay on drunken Friday nights. I regret none. They are all knives I would have purchased sober if I had the funds. For me, alcohol just removes financial inhibitions...it doesn't alter my aesthetic sensibilities.

    Zero. I haven't been high or low on adult substances in many years. I just don't like feeling out of control. I won't even take prescribed pain killers unless the pain is severe.

    I haven't done anything in years, but I was a mess years ago.

    I never bought a knife while high/drunk. Was too focused on other things

    Drunk/High and buying knives...Isn’t that how Cold Steel Espada XL’s get sold?

    I call alcohol money spending lube. 10 years ago I would agonize over a purchase because I'm frugal. Then after a few drinks I would put non refundable deposits on sites that offered layaway. The next day I would complain to my girlfriend that my computer needed a breathalyzer. Side note that's why I have a pistol grip 12 gauge. Totally unrelated to my severe carpal tunnel.
