Can we use will power to negate effect of general anesthetics?

Is it possible for an individual to consciously alter or negate the effect of a drug? For example, can an individual use his will power to remain conscious after being administered a general anaesthetic? Can an individual retain motor function using his will even after being administered skeletal muscular relaxants, eg succinyl choline?. Just out of curiosity..
