Beer or Sober
Considering it is a pub game, I used to play better sober and be absolutely hopeless after having a beer or two..

Now, after an extended festive break and the habits that come along with it.. I seem to play better after a few "bevvies"..

My 'A' game has turned full circle and I hit the board alot easier when having a drink.. Given this, would like to ask..

What is your best state to play in??

Best sober, but just a few wont make me play better/worse. But I try to not drink alcohol during a game.

I play better with a few, but also, have had a few too many and lost some league matches that way.

I drive to League so only have 2 light beers, more out of habit than anything else, so play more-or-less sober.

It was hard at first but I think it really helps your game if you can do it. I find now that if I do have a drink I tip over the other side a lot more easily so I actually find it easier just to have a couple.

I like to have a couple drinks, either beers or a couple cocktails to get a bit more comfortable and relaxed when I was playing league darts. I've pushed it over the line a few times when in long sessions with friends just tossing darts for fun.

There is the tipping point that once reached finds my game going down the tubes. That is usually after a six pack or about 5 mixed drinks------but that mostly depends on the length of time I'm playing. If for 3-4 hours, the above amounts wouldn't really bother me, but if only a couple hours, all bets are off.

I've not tried to play after a few drinks since I took it up properly so I can't say. Always best to play when you're sober though because it's unwise to rely on a crutch to help you play to your optimum.

I imagine for some people that a beer or two helps them to relax.

UThis may be frowned upon, but im at my best between 4-8 beers.

There is a guy in one of my leagues that can't/won't play unless he's half in the bag... maybe all the way. The last time my team played his he was drinking triple Jameson's. He mentioned he had something like 5 or 6 of them. 6? That's 18 shots. They'd have to scrape me off the floor.

That said, most dart nights I'll have only one or two pints of draft/bottles of beer

I like a couple before playing, then a few whilst playing. The window seems to stay open quite nicely from 2-8, then starts to close.

Starting to play when already drunk is another case entirely. Chalker would need a hard hat!

League night is typically my only night out in the week so I would have a few beers. I do keep the number to 3 or less before I throw my match so that the nervous edge is taken off but the beer goggles aren't on! Once I reach a certain level I set the darts down as there really is no point in trying to throw them. When practicing in the house I am always sober
