I've heard people say they hit PR's with hangovers but I'm sure that is few and far between. The PR's came from past training, not because of booze.
That being said, I anxiously await the first kickoff of the day with a fridge full of Bud Black Crown. ;o)
I've always wanted to drink and watch NASCAR, and I never have.
As for effecting my job, school, and relationships...yep. Been there, done that. Still do to some degree, but thankfully there's a thing called "will". I've seen myself effected, I've seen others effected by drinking much too often, and the question I always have to ask is, "IF I was driving the Titanic, and knew that I was going to crash into an iceberg if I didn't change directions, wouldn't I have changed the direction?".
That said, I do enjoy the occasional pitcher after training.
