I agree I REALLY dont want to go but my girl and all her friends already think I am anti-social and boring... I am about to turn 25 and already I would rather focuss on my training than drinking

I feel your pain justreading, my fiance just turned 21 i took her out last night after she got off work at 11:30. didnt actually get to the bar until almost 1.... they close at 2 around here. She was soo pist cause she didnt think she could get drunk in an hour, like 15 minutes later she was crying and puking and ****..... Good Times(not). I cant stand drinking or being around drunks, not sure why, probably cause i grew up around that ****. Going out is only fun before your legaly allowed to do it.

dude i don't even drink anymore and im 24, i just cant stand alcohol, other than a good wine, when ppl ask why i dont i say 'i hear its bad for you' all it does is create drama and dissapointment....good riddance. i also go into how alcohol is catabolic, slows down protein synthesis, lowers testosterone and makes you dehydrated by the end of that they don't bother me about it again.

honestly, the appeal of alcohol kind of wore out around sophomore year of highschool.
there were a couple of 25+ drink nights in the beginning of college but that is the last little round of binges i could manage to bring myself to engage in.
i have no problem going out and having a beer or two. drink slowly...if you are with girls chances are theyll be **** faced before youre done with the 2nd drink and wont be paying attention to your drinking one way or the other.

Yeah i have never really been a big drinker. Personally i think its kind of sad if you have be drunk, every time you go out, just to have a good time. Dont get me wrong. Drinking is great every now and then. I just prefer to do actually do something other than holding a bottle and taking and be able to remember it the next morning without feeling ****ty.

I'm pretty much done drinking. I just feel worthless and poopy and dry and tiny when I do it.
Just order a Perrier with lime. I'm sure the women will see you as manly
In all seriousness, if you have to drink alcohol for people to think you're social then they have a problem. There are such better things to do and spend your money and time on. My friends tend to be the same way, and just like to go out to bars and try to pick up girls. I'd rather go to a climbing wall or a jazz club or attempt to pick up an old hobby like skateboarding at the skate park. That stuff just has so much more appeal to me.

the most important thing i can advise is to find a balance to keep you happy. i was the exact same way in regards to drinking. it was a lose-lose situation. either have a good time and sacrafice some muscularity, or stay at home and be bored wishing i would have gone out. lets be honest, for most of us, the night is much more enjoyable with some drinks (i prefer a mild buzz).
i guess what im getting at is identifying your balance. if you're miserable becasue your social life isnt what it used to be, and a few drinks will help improve that status, have some drinks and enjoy yourself. the last few years, i stayed extremely dedicated to training. although i liked my appearance, i was disappointed with my social life. one of the big reasons i train outside of competition reasons is for attention and attraction to girls. i dont receive that if i dont go out and let loose every now and again.

Agree on the balance thing. It wasnt the sole reason but I'm pretty sure I lost my last GF b/c of not wanting to go out and drink all the time. She was a party girl and at the time I wasnt. I still go out and drink it up now and then. I dont compete and training for me is more of a stress relief then it is just to look good.

I feel the same as hulk. For awhile I wouldn't mess with alcohol. Now I enjoy a few beers on the weekend and it hasn't hurt my training any. I like the buzz feeling like hulk also but I usually don't even drink enough to feel anything. I just enjoy the taste of 2-3 beers and an occasional long island or yager bomb.

im a recovering alcoholic at the age of 23...haha. Ive been thru so much crap i dont know where to begin and the list is long, all because of alcohol. With that being said im still quite a drinker when i drink. People already know not to challenge me or say anything that would bring me to outrageous binging because they know all hell will break loose. Pretty sad actually. My current GF is a big drinker too so that doesnt help. I have learned to control myself a bit now and i dont drink everynight now just every other night lol jk. Ill drink maybe once a week if that. Methyls help me stay off the bottle too lol.

besides everyone in London drinks, the weather is so sh1tty there isn't much else to do besides get wasted!

All but gave it up by the time I was 25ish. I stayed drunk for about 2 years once. Every weekend, and 1-3 times during the week. The week of Christmas one year I don't think I was sober for much longer than a few hours.
The drama the comes with it isn't for me. Someone is always ruining the buzz. When I have gotten **** faced, the best times have been either with my best friend and very few others, or my girl. Other than that getting hammered by myself creates the least amount of drama and bs that goes on. I can sink into the couch and watch tv.
