    Worked out for a couple hours last night and got suckered in to a Thirsty Thursday event then drank til 1am.

    I know this probably isnt a good idea but how bad is it? Someone told me that it would nullify my workout that day. :hsd:

    alcohol blocks testosterone receptors for up to 72hrs and also reduces metabolism the same time... not good at all

    It won't nullify your workout completely. Don't worry about it just don't make a habit of it.

    I don't drink anymore..not against it, I just figure I'd rather waste my calories on other stuff if I'm going to have empty calories.

    .

    I usually drink on Friday night, but only work out Monday-Thursday. Is it less severe if you drink on a non-workout day?

    I was drinking roughly 10-20 drink per night for 6 months when bulking. I still made gains, but they could have been much better. I cut the drinking down to 2 days per month and fucking blew up, and stayed leaner too. Now I don't really want to drink at all, ever. Its hard to be single and not drink though, it freaks women out.

    That's exactly what I think and I've lost friends because I prefer not to drink. Not a bad loss IMO if drinking was that important :greddy:

    I have two very good friends who gave up drinking and drugs and as a result have lost a 3/4 of their old friends. no one wants to hang out with em anymore because they don't drink and don't do drugs

    Yup. Every time we were going out they'd harass me about how I was dumb not to drink. We could have talked about other things but we spent every night talking about that at least half of the time. I became bored and stopped talking to them.

    It's really funny that way..I've got friends I don't hang out with anymore because they give me so much shit about not drinking. There's just things I'd rather do than get smashed :dunno: Somehow it's acceptable to rag on you for not drinking but if you said anything to them about drinking it would be unacceptable.

    Yeah, there was one girl in particular that was harassing me. Iwas really disappointed because I used to think she was intelligent. She's obese too and ate like a fucktard, I've never fucking harassed her about that though...

    now that i've quit drinking everyone wants to be my friends because they want me to drive everywhere, but i still feel alone when i go out because its hard to feel included when your goal for the night isnt to get wasted.

    like if you're drinking and someone says "hey what you doing" you're like... "boozin man. boozin" but if you are sober and someone asks, you're like... "sittin here on this couch man."

    oh good lord... you wont make it, and rightfully so. It's your SENIOR year of college, give in. There's plenty of time to make up for it later, but you'll never get back that senior year.

    God forbid you go to a club and don't have a beer in your hand. I went out with my girlfriend and about 10 of her friends for her 24th a few weeks ago, and you should have heard how much crap I caught for not having a drink.

    When I stopped drinking I realized how many people depend on drugs/drinking to have a good time. It's kind of sad.

    I do it once a week now. I've quit for months before, no reason really, just to prove to myself that I can, and could have fun without it. Mostly if you are not drinking, you still ned to hold something in your hand. I just got waters. Its weird when you have both hands free, you don't know what to do with your hands.
