alcohol and BB'ing

You'll actually be healthier and leaner than the non-drinking you from a parallel universe if you have one to two drinks a day. Any more than two and the deleterious effects of alcohol will tend to overwhelm the benefits. Any alcohol will do, but red wine is probably best -- Pinot noir, for instance has one of the higher resveratrol contents.

Blah blah blah. Alcohol is bad for you, yes. But, in college, do you want to be the sober lame ass riding the wall with his diet Red Bull and vodka but oh-so-well-defined pecs.... or do you want to have a few drinks, be loose, and have a great time as well as a social life?
I choose the latter.
Chances are you could improve your diet, training, or intensity and see much better improvements, anyways.

I've just came off a weekend bender with a bunch of m8s on leave from the Army before they go to Iraw/Afgan in June. Spent most of today in bed aswell! My bank account doesn't look to healthy now either.
Any gains i've made lately have probably just been pissed against the wall
Saying that i'd say i'm healthy now than i ever was Back in the gym tomorrow! and no more drink till the festival season.

I haven't had a drink in about 2 months. Every once in a while I think I miss it, but I'll tell you one thing that I don't miss - the hangovers.
It's so weird being sober while everyone else is ****faced. Really makes you realize how much of a jackass you are to onlookers.
Moderation is key. I'll drink again some day, but I have no desire to get stupid plastered again like I have in the past.

The key to not having hangovers is drinking hard liquor and mixing it with an antioxidant like cranberry juice. I've never had a hang over when I drank with cran juice.

"Beer isn't alcohol - beer is FOOD!"
And, in fact, beer is arguably a way to preserve the nutritional value in wheat (fairly effectively), and laborers from ancient Egypt to the present day have derived nourishment from it.
However, it's not really part of a carefully-created and maintained anabolic environment, and the damaging effect of alcohol on the liver should be of special concern to anyone who contemplates any modification of their hormonal matrix, given the nature of many of the compounds that are used for such modifications.
Take-home = "not worth it!"
