    say you drink on a saturday night... 5 miller lites...
    and you smoke a blunt on friday

    will this slow down your gains?... or make you look worse in the mirror?

    if so how much does this affect you?

    alcohol blocks test receptors and slows metabolism for up to 72 hours.

    weed makes you eat like shit and might aggravate gyno if you have it. If you can control your food intake when :420: and aren't smoking multiple times every single day of the week you'll be fine.

    alcohol is terrible. if you want to get fucked up and be jacked try GHB or Ketamine. Weed is ok but I can never control my raging appetite if im blazed and theres some studies done saying it does lower test/raises estrogen. :dunno:

    i blame alcohol partially for my lack of progress over the past few years. I feel a lot better now that I've cut back over the past month. I've always tried to taper down but failed ... now I max it at two drinks if I go out, unless it is a special occasion.

    yaa weed's fine if you can control what you eat. i unfortunately consumed 4 slices of bread and 8 oreos, followed by some grilled chicken and cottage cheese last night.

    Yeah I've never understood how a person can say they just cannot stop..unless they're an alcoholic and needs some serious AA help.

    Weed, well, it's just very very very tempting, especially when it is sitting in your desk drawer.

    It's not easy when it's part of your life. I'm really into beer, I'm in numerous beer clubs, and I'm constantly buying and trading beer. I'm not going to drink beer for a month and it's going to be hard :dunno:

    Think about it.... go workout with a hangover. Tell me if this is conducive to putting up weight? The more time your body is trying to eliminate alcohol and its metabolites, the less time your body is devoting to getting swole.

    I have set numerous PR's while hungover...

    I benched my first 501 in competition with a brutal hangover and Scott Yard benched his first 804 after a long night of drinking
