    Hahaha! They really have to try hard to lure you in

    Magic dust and exercise are kinda contradictory... but if you do party on Saturday, I'd definitely take Sunday completely off and refeed/veg-out.

    Saturday night is my designated drinking night. However, before I go out, I make sure to have 2 servings of Poseidon and 1 before I go to bed. Unless I drink a ridiculous amount, I do not have a hangover the next day. Sunday is the only day of the week that I don't train, so I use that as my rest/recovery day.

    I probably drink more than most on this board, but I make sure to have a strict diet, training, and rest routine the rest of the week. It's pretty much my treat to myself for a hard weeks work.

    See that's the thing for me, even though I doubt a couple beers on a weekend here and there would show visibly on an active person's physique, I just can't help but think I'm just chugging
    a bunch of worthless carbs and sugar, and that while my body's busy processing it all, my liver is too distracted to metabolize fat.
    It makes me not want a drink.

    I hear ya... I kinda learned to let go a little bit here and there, though I'm not touching it while I'm cutting/recomping.

    I've seen many cokeheads that are cut. It doesn't mean you're in amazing shape because your face is sunken in and you have excreted the subcutaneous water weight from beneath the skin. It doesn't mean you're in great shape because you sniffed so much blow that your appetite decided to go away and you don't eat for extended periods of time. That's called being anorexic. It doesn't mean jack when you hit a good line of snow and the dopamine (and NE & adrenaline) rush causes the nervous system to contract every muscle in your body.
    I must've HONESTLY been 5% bodyfat while using speed. It doesn't mean I was in great shape. My confidence was high and a ton of women would be talking to me and that definitely boosted the ego, but what does being in good shape mean to you?

    I like this strategy. Good example of a balance between both sides

    I think like some others have said you have to decide what your goals are. If your dead-set on looking like a bodybuilder, then obviously drinking won't do you any good.

    However there's a balance in life, and if it's all work and no play... are you really enjoying yourself? I think you should let yourself have a night of drinking here and there. I know tons of guys at the gym who look ripped and drink beer regularly! Just avoid eating tons of food late at night, and maybe try drinking on an empty stomach so it doesn't take as much to get you to the drunk point you want

    Enjoy life, it only happens once. The girl won't care if you put on 0.1% bf that night, or that your bench is now -5lbs. All that matters is that you met her.

    **** that. On a similar note, be VERY careful if you drink while taking any product with naringin in it (e.g. RPM, Drive, etc). I have had some very bad nights and mornings because I forgot about these. A 12 will hit you like 18 and you go from sober to buzzed to trashed within 1-2 drinks.
