I drink coffee only because I paint in the mornings. I drink coffee no matter what I'm doing in the morning.

Never thought of most of these as 'mind altering'….

Agree with PzGeneral, I drink coffee or diet Coke but don't consider them "mind altering".

I would drink, probably tea or coffee, but my painting table is so cluttered that there's no room to put a cup down ….

Usually water and occasionally soda.

This needs to be a "pick five".
I drink coffee, tea, and water all the time, so during painting, yes. I also often paint when I would normally have a beer of glass of wine (hanging out with SWMBO, "watching" sports, etc.), so I don't drink alcohol for painting, but I also don't stop drinking I would otherwise be doing.

I often drink tea while painting as much to ease the pain in my hands from the heat of the cup as any effect from the tea itself.

Depends on the time of day.

Caffeine makes my hands shake so I stay away from coffee tea etc. I'm not much of a drinker so I never really tried painting after a few.

Another for water and rarely soda.

I find that if I have a beer the first couple sips are fine, but then I get into painting and forget I have and then it's flat and warm. Same sort of thing with coffee.

I don't mix drinking with painting. Which helps explain why it takes so long for me to get around to paining anything.
|Dave Crowell||12 Feb 2018 12:32 p.m. PST|
I have a strict studio rule of no beverages anywhere near the painting area. I have gulped paint water and swished my brush in my drink one too many times…
And it doesn't matter how distinctly different the containers are, it will happen.

Not being the most skilled painter, my drinking usually begins AFTER painting when I see what I did to my poor minis.
|Frederick ||12 Feb 2018 2:37 p.m. PST|
I sometimes have a spot of tea or a Coke when painting
Not often, but sometimes
| Ironwolf ||12 Feb 2018 8:19 p.m. PST|
I don't like painting so I drink a soda while packing up my figs to ship off to a painter. lol

Old habits. I used to use a Diet Coke can for my wash water. (Spills out much more slowly if you knock it over, and I was in barracks: no ready access to small cans.) Having a drinking can and a washing can on the table was just asking for trouble.

Water mostly but have done coffee or occasionally tea
