    Huh, pleased to stimulate your creativity, so there you go, Creativity expanded sans opiates!! Hence, proved no opiates and Narcotics don't aid you rather they destroy your creativity or in some cases 'you' too!!!

    Interesting thought. Like the "Clearing out the cobwebs" metaphor. In my opinion, narcotics-induced-creativity is short-term with no solid conclusion whatsoever. Agreed on the last two sentences. And it is the sharper wit, indeed!

    Agreed on the first para. Getting high does certainly makes us audacious. And yeah the early morning writing is always productive.

    I tend to write with a cup of coffee in hand. Maybe the caffeine helps.

    hahahha...lighter side to it I see. And there is a reason why it is corny, to say that the best high you get is from life, it is corny because it has been proved correct time and time again.

    So, you are suggesting, that it doesn't necessarily have to be drugs, the trick is to find the right drug/hobby/exercise to trigger creativity?? It's different for different being. That's a point to ponder upon.

    Let me get one thing clear, here, i am a 20yr old guy pursuing engineering, so I wouldn't want to waste my life on drugs. In fact, i condemn it too.

    Nevertheless, agreed on the first para. but we should ask the Pink Floyd crew the same question.

    I will. Drugs are harmful, needless to say but the question here is do they really do stimulate creativity??

    I don't do drugs or smoke for that matter. The question came to my mind after stumbling upon a new snippet!

    Hmmm..interesting fact. Yeah narcotics and opiates are known to have ill-effects on your body sooner or later. Asked this question, after stumbling into a news snippet claiming that a famous writer used to "use" it

    Yeah, you can say that. Because many other factors trigger creativity too-

    Like long walks, rainy day etc.
