    ok who here smokes and drinks a lot while bulking?

    can bulking be done effectively while smoking and drinking excessively? should i just quit them both or just moderate them?

    they both hurt gains while bulking



    quitting smoking entirely is never a bad idea.

    I smoke about a half pack a day.. Comes with the business im in.

    I drink heavy on the weekends sometimes, but not all the time.

    I smoke pot about 4 -5 times a week, usually after my protien shake.

    I have no trouble gaining.

    agreed partially. nicotine is an appetite suppressant, and bad for your lungs which would inhibit you cardiovascular system.

    There have been a couple of studies that show moderate alcohol consumption can actually increase test, at least temporarily.

    Until there is more research, personally, I'd still try and stay away from alcohol for the most part, but I wouldn't totally cut it out

    yeah that's almost exactly what i was saying. for sure i'd cut out smoking b/c of bad health in general, and because cigarettes constrict blood vessels preventing nutrients from feeding muscles during rebuilding.

    alcohol you should stay away from, but... easier said then done, and a little alcohol now and then isn't going to be that bad.

    Great way to bulk, the number of Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers I can destroy with the muncies is ridiculous. I think I did 10 once. (can knock out 6 unassisted if Im felling good). In addition to the frys, nuggets and a frosty.

    I dont get hungry until the buzz wears off.
    I dont eat fast food unless I cant get anything else to eat (i.e. too busy, etc.)
    I find pot mellows me out really good after a stressful day..

    I get crazy hungry about 30 minutes after I smoke.

    Wendy's Dollar Menu is my one vice.

    Pot is great for relaxing.
