I think for each individual the answer will be different depending on their reason for partaking. If one can say honestly that they are indulging for the sheer enjoyment and there is no addiction or attachment involved then it may very well help in an overall good feeling. However, when it is used for escaping or avoiding their current reality then the good feeling will be fleeting, at best, and is usually followed by a period of lower vibration. The key as always is to be honest with oneself and unveil those self delusions...many addicts and alcoholics are not aware that they have a problem
Even a lot of those celebrities you refer to indulge, as a coping mechanism, to deal with the smoke and mirror reality they have created. Quite often no-one knows what goes on behind closed doors and we certainly don't know what goes on behind closed minds.
If you are considering getting drunk or high for anything other than a moment of enjoyment I have a feeling that you will be disappointed - the transient high may just set you on a road constantly seeking a temporary fix to raising your frequency. If you want to raise your frequency in a more lasting way I'd suggest meditation and a daily appreciation of life. And if you find what makes you laugh incorporate that into your daily life as much as possible:)

Nothing, nothing, nothing, NO THING has any built-in meaning, other than the meaning you give to it. This applies to EVERYTHING. Therefore, if you FEEL that getting drunk or high raises your vibe, then it will.

Yes, it must do.
If you use positive thinking or focus blocks to raise your thoughts to a better feeling place then alcohol would seem a perfect way to do the same thing.
Now i know the good feeling high wont last forever, but then neither will any good feeling thought just go on forever. If it did we would all walk around in a constant Nirvana type state.
Alcohol has done more to raise my vibrational state than any factor ive experienced. Now i know its meant to be addictive, bad for you, marriage wrecking and so on.
But its not been that for me.Ive always firmly believed that Alcohol is a blessing. Its helped me tremendously in my life. I wouldnt be without it.
Now is it that way for everyone? I dont know. Im only aware of my own reality.

Excellent. Argument became very three dimensional. Thanks everyone.
I have abuse all sorts of stuff and I know how that can be a host for all sort of disappoint but I was asking for just small recreational. My brain is naturally per disposed for extreme depression which causes all kinds of bodily pain eventually if no real happiness occurs. Had it since I was a child and only through socializing and recreation use did I ever come out of my shell.
Since I've been sober and mediating I have found how mind was not capable of the depth it is now, however, at the same time I have totally reach a blah plateau and become socially alienated. Which for me- I will never find any happiness, especially seeing how in the past recreational use has allowed me to find natural acting aspect of the LOA before ever even reading about it. I naturally adopted some ideas through experience. I think moderation is key, because the lows can become worst than the highs, also not doing anything as habit will allow new better experience in my life.

It is my understanding that just because you are drunk or under the effect of some drug does not mean you are having a good experience. People speak of "having a bad trip" quite often. Pot can "make you" paranoid. Drunks often become aggressive, abusive and complain of how miserable their life is. So I imagine the question to ask is, do I raise my frequency when I get drunk or use this drug?

All depends on intent. I have used weed to get into a state where my vibration was higher, where I could easily get in touch with my subconscious and release energy blocks. It's a bit tricky though, because drugs do sometimes diminish your focus, and they are hard to control. I still like the idea of using marijuana as a spiritual tool, but in moderation, and approached with respect. Other times, it's just nice to get high and veg out, being totally self-indulgent and hedonistic. Because I feel good about doing so, that helps my overall vibration too, as long as I don't do it every day and neglect my other responsibilities.
As for alcohol, I have had many a good night out with friends, getting drunk, and waking up the next day feeling great. I've had more experiences that were the opposite though.
As other people have said, it really is different for everyone. We can't tell you whether getting drunk or high will raise your vibration or not. The best thing you can do is really examine why you want to get high or drink. For me, doing it to escape usually leads to a bad time, but doing it because it truly feels right has led to some amazing times.
Be safe :)
Depends. I have known this idea very well. I once had issues with this. If you are able to use it as a great time/ enhancer of experience, such as mushrooms used to do for me, then yes. BUT the problem I see with it is that I know the possibility of becoming dependent on it. If you begin to enjoy the experience more than you do your daily life, it can consume you and disconnect you form your soul worse than anything else. I know from experience when I let the drugs overcome me it made me disconnect worse than any other point in my life. What I have found now is that all these experiences you have with the drugs, you can have without them. They are inside you. You can not have them with the drugs if they are not already a part of your existence. So what I am saying is this. Why damage your body for something you can achieve in a meditative state anyway? Listen to Treb explain a bit better. Hope this helps.

From the book 30 Years Among The Dead. It has been found out to lower the vibrations so much so that on loss of consciousness the person becomes a host to other souls that may not be so nice. These souls just want more substance to abuse and maybe a fight or two, also sex with who ever they can find willing. This is why when someone gets told what they did, they have no memory of it. "Dude you was so hammered last night! You got into a fight with that guy, then left with that biker girl only to get beat up by that gang then to top it off thrown in jail for indecent exposure! Wow you know how to party hard!", "Ha what? I don't remember any of that! Why do I have these bandages on my head and arms, and who's cloths am I wearing?"
I'd never want to end up like this, no drugs or drinks for me ever.
I'll always remember that commercial for pot. The kid smokes this joint and goes insane! He then pours gasoline all over his own car and lights it on fire while laughing hysterically about it! That was I believe an 80's just say no commercial.
