It sounds as though we are in the same boat. It will have been a year for me in two days

I drink, usually on weekends and always watching NFL games. There is nothing wrong with having a few beers, shots, or glasses of wine to enhance your entertainment. If it effects your job or any relationships in a negative way, then it's to excess. If it effects your training in a negative way, you need to evaluate your priorities. 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)

Since its Oktoberfest, I have marzen style beers in the evening. Sometimes even as intra-workout carbs. Plus it tastes good.

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.

What are your thoughts? Personally, I'd like to say alcohol can certainly have a good effect on training, but I have nothing to back it up rather than I like to drink. I will say though, I often tend to get very lazy when I go on drinking binges and have missed workouts because my mind is on drinking rather than training first.

Once more, it's not that drinking is essential to lifting success- it's that risk taking behaviors, drinking being among them, are an indicator of the type of personality that will succeed in strength sports. Additionally, drinking will not derail your efforts in the gym, as so many Americans will posit.
"


It's not about drinking it's about the risk taking behaviours indicating personalities...in relation to strength sports, as viewed by the author.
