    What does everyone think about drinking a glass or two of wine whilst doing coursework/revision?

    Do you think it would help alleviate stress and perform better, or worse?

    Nope. Wouldn't reccomend it. Okay, you'll feel relaxed and everything, but the information wouldn't sink in...

    Considering I spend half the time at uni with a hangover, and I haven't been kicked out yet, I doubt it can be that bad for you.

    Smoking weed has proven to help studying as long as you smoke a splif before your exam as well.

    Same results have been produced with heroine,cocaine and masturbation.

    A glass of wine actually helps me to be a bit less stressed when it comes to essays. Wouldn't recommend actually getting tipsy though!

    Edit: Don't know why I got negged for this I'm a 23 year old masters student, I hardly ever go out drinking anymore, I'm not an alcoholic. My course is extremely stressful and intensive. A glass of wine helps me relax when it comes to essays and I think actually helps me perform better. What's the problem with that? I'm not saying 15 year old kids doing their GCSEs should be getting drunk whilst studying.

    The same has been found with chewing gum.
    It's not the drug that does it, it's the behaviour, or rather the repeating of it. It's a cue, like how some people can remember past events from a certain smell.

    That's the answer then, as long you have a few glasses of wine before your exams you'll be fine.

    Sarcasm doesn't transfer well over the Internet, and I only hope I misinterpreted your post.

    I masturbated before my C1 exam and I got 100%. It definitely says something... everyone knows C1 is terribly easy, it is silly mistakes that stops A LOT of students from getting 100%, perhaps masturbation helps you relax so you are less prone to silly mistakes.

    Depends, if you have writer's block, it could work. If you're just writing reams of bull**** as it is, probably not.
