It depends, really. Sometimes it's a spontaneous urge, sometimes it's me drinking and coding whilst doing so.
Sometimes it's a lot of coffee as mentioned in another post commenting on this week's topic.

Regarding the drinking: for some reason my code works and I write more in less time.

    I don't know why alcohol helps, but it certainly does sometimes.

    Actually, I probably can imagine: helps to stop me overthinking details that are ultimately unimportant. Fiddly details can be sorted out once the problem is essentially solved, with the aid of caffeine.

    Alcohol probably help because, while it's reduces logical thinking, it boosts creativity, and as much as programming is a science, it's much more art, sooooooo

    Alcohol reduces stress, makes you care less about every single detail, and therefore allows you to be more creative.

    I drink primarily because of the first.
