For the hardcore gambling and drinkers out there. Talking about sessions of gambling and drinking for 12 to 18 hours. How do you keep your mind together and continue to enjoy Vegas? I usually begin my gambling around 1000 or 1100 am and first drink about 15 minutes later. Finish the gamble around 0200 or 0300. The wonderful cocktail waitresses usually bring a drink around every 20 minutes. After about beer 5 or 6. I add a water to my order and at beer 8 or 9 add a caffine pill to the mix. How do you gamble and drink hard and survive?
