Diary writing can also help you judge the effect of any drug on your thinking and perception. If you write under the influence of marijuana, alcohol, hashish, cocaine, or another drug you can later see just how the drug alters your consciousness and writing. Memory can be very deceptive when it comes to assessing the effects of a drug. Some drugs offer an elevation that seems to heighten the quality of an activity. Rereading and comparing entries made when you are under the influence of a drug with entries made when you are not can help you determine when a particular drug is not functioning as a mind-expander but as an inner con artist.
