you're doing it wrong imo.
Yeah I see where you're coming from and I wish I could change it, it just seems like if i'm playing stoned i'll be like 'OH MAN THIS GUY IS TOTALLY SAD FROM WHEN I BLUFFED HIM BEFORE AND NOW HES ANGRY SO HE WILL ACTUALLY BE BLUFFING ALOT OF THE TIME' and 3bet over a c/r on the river or something and get called by a fh. That's a bit of an extreme example but basically I have too many other factors (mind wandering, tripping out, reading into emotions too much) that hinder my real time play, but if I'm just thinking about a hand (even though it might take longer because i'm tripping etc) I'll generally come up with something better than sober that will be mostly theory based.
Also alot of the time I'll come up with an idea stoned (poker idea obv) and write in in a notepad with details and then think about it later when im sober and that works out well too.
Note that I smoke a fair amount of weed so it's not just a lack of experience with weed.
