Yes, I rather enjoy beer.
Im not sure if there has ever been a poll on here about this, but I'm just curious. Do any of you drink? If so, how often? I personally am not a big fan of drinking. Several months go by before I have a drink. Even then, I hate it and feel like crap. I really feel alcohol is best left out when trying to put on muscle or burn fat. From what I know, it shuts down protein synthesis and fat burning for a good period of time.

I can count on one hand the number of drinks I've had.
Didn't like the taste of anything and getting piss-azz-drunk doesn't appeal to me.
I only drink Guinness and a certain red wine. Haven't been drunk in years. I do try to have a glass of wine once or twice a week.
I don't drink.
I am in college and underage too! Amazing ain't I?
I would think drinking is the only thing left to do in North Dakota
bro that is my problem i drink like crazy in college and lose all my body mass and size and its a pain in the a** to get back into shape...your in good shape if u dont drink it destroys your body in a number of ways
I am in the same boat as you. I went to a bar on my 21st bday and still did not have a drink.Originally Posted by Brent

i haven't had a drink since my 18th b-day.
I likes my beer as well. I'm actually going to start making it. I have a few friends who make it and they are getting me started.
I also like certain tequila drinks or shots (which is seldom). However, it has to be a quality tequila so there's no hangover. When the night comes to an end, fix yourself up with a calcium/magnesium/advil ****tail, drink some gatorade and wake up refreshed.
You need to have some vices to enjoy...as long as you're responsible.
I bartend but never drink, i see how stupid the patrons get...LOL
RIP Ryan, :(
My friend is a bartender as well.... do you know about the visine trick????Originally Posted by toughchick401
I never really drink in the U.S., but over here in Germany I used to drink a crazy amount of beer at least once a week. I stopped 2 weeks ago, so I could get more serious in the gym, but MAN, these metalheads friends of mine really love putting on the pressure when it comes to drinking beer :/
In the end, a little alchohol here and there isn't going to be all that bad for you. I mean, you can't let lifting run your life (unless you want to turn pro).
I think friends who pressure you to drink may not be real friends.... just MHO....
We could attach so many things to the end of that line.Originally Posted by Ronin13
I hate that saying so much.

rather simple really... if you are adament about not wanting to drink because you are serious about living a healthy life style but they harp on you (and I mean really give you sh1t) every time you guys go out then they are not respecting you. If someone does not respect me then they are not a friend.
Its more of a light fun-making. They understand why I don't do it and leave me alone about it. I do think its pretty dumb when people treat you differently just because you won't drink, but if its just a little fun-making, then its no big deal.
I voted for once in a bluemoon, i don't drink often but when i do i go all out, i'm talking like getting plastered at my cousin's wedding or something like that, lol. Other than that i just look at as empty calories.
