Books N' Drugs

How's it going guys?
As a skinny, lonely manchild I've spent most of my time at college alone, studying, reading, browsing lit and best of all trying out lots of interesting and odd drugs.
After thoroughly researching and testing various chemicals I've found two that just go perfect with books.
I know it sounds weird, but just hear me out.
I don't like drugs that just get me fucked up, I like drugs that make my every day routine more enjoyable while also being relatively healthy.
First of all, Kava, one of the safest intoxicating beverages on the planet. It taste like shit but its worth it for the effects.
Ever want to read but feel anxious, like you should be up doing something active?
RLS ever fuck up a reading session?
Do you sometimes experience cluttered thoughts, or an inability to focus when all you want to do is sit down and enjoy a book?
This stuff works like magic for all those problems. Have a glass over lunch and enjoy a clear mind and perfectly relaxed body for hours, perfect for reading. It's just the perfect pairing with a good book.
Secondly, Kratom, India's coffee. At low doses it has a nice stimulating effect, good for a nice boost in the mornings. At higher doses it calms the mind, calms the body and puts you in the perfect state for enjoying a good book.
As an added side effect, I find it the perfect cure for existential anxiety. I know that sounds stupid as fuck, but I find it impossible to feel anxiety on kratom.
Anyway, I just thought some of you guys would be interested since I imagine there's a good portion of you similar to me.
My reading time doubled after discovering these wonderful drugs, and my enjoyment of it probably tripled.
I'm not saying you need drugs to enjoy literature, in fact I only use these substances one to two times a week, I'm just saying they're great for getting you in the perfect reading state.
What do you guys enjoy with book? Coffee? Tea? Alcohol? A smoke?

Hey, writers of /lit/. Go ahead and post the beginnings of something you're working on. Or any extract, really.
>Get constructive criticism
>Work out the kinks
>Improve your writing
>Another step toward publishing
>Come back and help other people out with theirs
Anything at all - prose, poetry, drama.
And, for the next hour or so, I personally guarantee a response for every piece posted (the thoughtfulness of my critique will, naturally, be commensurate with the ambition and scale of the text). I know a lot of work gets ignore in these threads, for no good reason, but I'll sincerely consider every original word you share!

Good morning, /lit/!
I have a question regarding reading apps for smart phones, if anyone can help me with this. This could be a thread for e-reading in general as well.
Recently I was saddled with an Iphone, and I'd like to try to make the best of it by getting an app for reading books on it. I've downloaded a lot of pdf files from the board and Calibre for editing files but I'm not sure which app would be best suited to use. Right now I'm looking at Comic Glass, which seems kind of nice because I could also use it for reading comics or manga. But if there's anything else that could be better or something that any of you use and like I'd love to hear it. I'm not really concerned about if it's free or costs money either, as long as it's good enough to have.
Twelfth Night essay!

I don't mean to be a drag or anything, I just really need help!
I'm writing an essay, and would really appreciate if someone could give me an example of irresponsible behaviour of one of the characters in the play! I used the example of Sir Toby, always drinking/never making money kinda stuff. I also used Maria, not being a responsible in stopping Sir Toby and friends, when they where making a ton of noise one night. Thanks in advance!!!
*Btw I read the book, just had a bit of trouble understanding some scenes, maybe I missed something.
