As a LHP individualist and occultist, in my rituals I use a graal or a unique Victorian sort of cup. My question for you is what you fill the graal with? in case it's part of your ritual. I personally drink from the graal a really strong black coffee.

I also know alcoholic drinks complicate or disturb the ritual's essence. What do you think? I really would like to read about your personal experience.

Personally, I use mixtures of energy drinks and Vodka. I find orange Monster and vodka to give the effect I'm looking for. It helps break down the walls of inhabition and gets the adrenal flow going as well. I've also mixed aphrodeziac with the other elixir. This was quite a potent combination, pun intended. Point being, lower inhibitions and get the adrenaline flowing. I've experimented, Red Bull and Tequila is a good combo for a destruction ritual. I natural act aggresive on either one stand alone. I say experiment with every drink you can. Same goes for oils and inscense. Find what works for you!

What you drink should be pleasing and stimulating to YOU. If strong black coffee is your "cup o' tea," that's what you should use.

Dr. LaVey usually had whiskey in the Chalice. I used Diet Coke. He didn't like it much when he took it from me and drank it down, but hey... my Invocation, my elixer.

There is no reason to drink with every ritual working, but a fortified Cabernet Sauvignon with a couple drops of blood makes an excellent vinum sabbati when the occasion calls for it.

I would use absinthe were it not so damned expensive.

I may have told this story before here, but on the 6/21/70 event of my III° ordination at 6114, the Chalice was filled with Wild Turkey, which I knew nothing about but dutifully drained. I have zero tolerance for alcohol and never drink it. So that evening, while I am reasonably sure I became a Priest of something or other, I was more enthralled by a magical revelation of the entire cosmos unfolding before me. Not to mention that the next morning I was equally certain that my immortal soul was now damned in Hell.

Anton and Diane hadn't known, of course. Thereafter they kept a bottle of ginger ale in the fridge for me, although Anton complained that it would give the Church of Satan a good name if word got out.

My only other similar experience was stopping at a roadside "Cider" stand on a hot summer day on my first drive through the Appalachians in 1968. I had grown up in California knowing only Martinelli's apple cider, so a nice big glass sounded very refreshing ...

In the Nineveh Grotto we used cold blackberry juice, which we kept in a gargoyley decanter and served in small red-glass taster glasses. Thus all the Grotto members could drink at once, and of course it was more sanitary. It was also mysterious to visitors, because unless you know what blackberry juice is, you don't. Some visitors from the local theological seminary were very reticent, probably thinking it was some of Kesey's "Electric Kool-Aid".

That's really not a satisfactory attempt at penis-based innuendo, Satan is le puss. Stay behind and see me after school.

This is a common myth in ritual magic. I've seen this very concept in Wiccan books that you can find in major book stores. For me, alcohol enhances my magic. What it really comes down to is that, despite there being general principles of magic, every practitioner operates differently. Reading too much into magical "rules" can make your practice mechanical and ineffective.

As for what I put in the cup, besides using alcohol when it's available I usually use plain old water because of its symbolic elemental significance.

It all depends on the goal of the specific ritual. If you are looking to do a serious-minded working that requires focus and concentration, drugs would not be a good idea.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a spontaneous and "ecstatic" experience, then mind-altering substances will certainly help.

I generally use the finest brandy I have on hand. Partly because I'm a brandy drinker, and always have some in my liquor cabinet. But also partly because the idea of using "burnt wine" appeals to me.

Not really a ritual man, but when I perform I tend to make cocktails.
Why? You can lengthen the ritual and put some more actual time in the preparation and general flow.

All it takes is being creative with alcoholic drinks.. Pure magic you can do with coke, orange juice, tomatoe-juicy, whiskey, genever, gin,...
Mixing certain strong drinks together can give it those special colors like bloody red and even pitch black. (Once had one which had the color of shit... tasted well though.)

Nothing like the rituals I do.
For instance last month I embarked on a month long ritual that entailed sensory deprivation and concluded with sensory saturation.
All towards the mind bending state of cracking the psyche open.

The finest point came during the sleep saturation, where I eventually existed in my waking hours in states of consciousness and unconsciousness.

. . . and now I'm insane!!

Um, I think you mean sleep deprivation. My longest ritual was nine days (nine being a “magic number” – lol). It was my first ritual, a ritual to better understand the purpose of rituals. Maybe I didn’t do it right, because I’m still stuck somewhere between “heavy, man” and “what’s the big fucking deal?”

Hey, Oxus may have meant sensory deprivation! I've heard of people using those tanks for meditation and visualisation (and rather them than me, quite frankly).

I don't do formal ritual - I've found in the past that performing it actually detracts from concentrating on the task at hand and have my own way of sorting stuff out now. However, I am in communication with an archetype / neter / loa who appreciates a drop of rum and if I drink any always splash some on the ground or put a drop in another glass as a libation.

It's good to see Dimitri favours cocktails; I have a very funny story concerning said being and a particularly splendid mojito if anyone would care to hear it. As I've no desire to go into the kitchen for ten minutes and come back to see people calling me and each other liars and bastards I'll keep it to PM. ;\)

Yep, I meant 'sensory' deprivation, cutting off eyesight or hearing for certain durations of time, while saturating other senses. I wish I had a Think Tank!

I agree with William Wright . . . I'm never sure if I opened something up or just wasted my time, we will have to see.

Ive used blood and I dont drink except for ritual because of the energy it contains. Plus I have donors as well then continue with the rest of the ceremony.

While reading this post I was surprised to hear that LeVay had whiskey in his challis, from the actual people that practiced with him none the less! I have come to find that this is also my favorite liquid to use. Personally, I don't believe that alcohol interferes with my "ritual essence" if that's how you want to put it. Not in the least, but that's just me.

Excuse my bad grammar of the LeVey name. Worse things have happened from 48 hours of being awake than confusing an e with an "a". My bad. I just found the post interesting and thought I would add my personal appeasement on the subject. I won't bore you or anyone else with such rubbish anymore dread. Thanks for the tip big dog ;\)

Enough said. Sleep is much needed. I seem to be digging myself into a hole here. I will crawl out later...
Edit- the comical part is I actually went on a different post I had to change the spelling to LeVey instead of LaVey. Amazing the delusions that can accompany a lack of sleep. School, work and trying to find self sovereignty can take a toll on you. No excuses.
