Thanks. But I believe Buddha taught the middle way. There must be a health reason for you to do it.
Remember the recollection.
Paṭisaṅkhā yoniso gilānapaccayabhesajjaparikkhāraṁ paṭisevāmi,
With proper discernment I make use of the requisite of medicine for support when sick,
yāvad-eva uppannānaṁ veyyābādhikānaṁ vedanānaṁ paṭighātāya
only to ward off oppressive feelings that have arisen
and at least be free from oppression. 
Times to use it. Probably not before meditating.
It have to be seen in healthy ways. Boiling etc. And to not get high. So not strong. Just exact to help to slowly physically make you stronger. Like a drink of Local herbs helped me with my Bad digestion. I’m not done yet. It’s still bad. Just saying. Understand it’s not the same after a stroke.
But the effect is actually not even like alcohol. The rule actually related to alcohol. And intoxicating yourself. Well we don’t have to reach that level of deluded mind. It’s about not teaching the mind in delusion.
In this samsara the Bodhisatta probably was like Sadhus. Why go against things if in the past we did them. Enough to use things without attachment.
