What Is The Internet Marketer’s Drug Of Choice?

Techcrunch had a interesting story today about lots Silicon Valley entrepreneurs being hopped up on Provigil.

Provigil (aka Modafinil) is marketed by Cephalon in the United States and is available by prescription only. It’s only approved use in the U.S. is to treat narcolepsy, a sleeping disorder. But since the main effect of Provigil is to keep you awake and able to concentrate, a lot of people who get their hands on it use it to be able to work longer hours, even though it has not been deemed safe for that kind of use.

Now I have a pretty diverse background in IT. Going back over the last 15 years or so I have seen a lot of drugs in the tech industry. Back when I was super into security and used to goto the Defcon conferences years ago (like 5+) it was not uncommon to see Cocaine floating around.

But most people I know in the Internet Marketing, whether its Affiliate Marketers, Search Engine Optimizers, Social Media people, and even just bloggers seem to prefer drugs that slow you down as opposed to those that speed you up.

Drugs that speed me up always scared me. My mind goes fast enough as it is. I sometimes need to take meds that slow me down just so I can sleep. I have admitted before in q&a that I have puffed a bit on some sweet cheebah every once in a while so I am not here to judge anyone.

So I am curious… Being many internet marketers read this site lets throw it out there completely anonymously. What is your drug of choice?
