>>67868658the no fun allowed crowd is scared of ever leaving their tiny little box
Because it negatively impacts muscle protein synthesis.
>>67868658>boosts testosteroneNo it doesn't
>>67868658>>makes you more social>>makes you more confidenti wish i could do it without liquid jew
>>67868658Have you ever seen a healthy alcoholic? Next your going to say that drinking beer gives you sick pec gains lol.
>>67868788I would fucking smash yourself in you fucking cunt if I wasn’t so fucking drunk right now cunt bitch.FUCK UOO
>>67868658>>boosts testosterone>>lowers blood sugar>>reduces your risk of type 2 diabetesyour first three points are literally opposite of what alcohol actually does, not gonna bother reading the rest of your post.sure, there's no harm in occasionally having a couple drinks with your buddies but why lie about its effects? you're not doing yourself any favors
>keeps you warm and alive during winterCompletely false, and actually dangerous in a real survival situation.It makes you feel warm because body heat is being brought to the surface of the skin. That's the opposite of what you want if you're cold enough to str8 up die.
>>67868658i'm pretty sure no one is against alcohol, aside from some few retardsgetting drunk/wasted on the other hand is what it is very look down in here. not because the alcohol itself, but the stupid shit you do or eat and drink while drunkthat and also the degenerancy that carries being drunk often
>>67868803> Completely false, and actually dangerous in a real survival situation.Lol your full of shit. Knew a guy that crashed his car on his way home from the bar. He had to walk five miles home, barefoot, no coat, -25 bellow. He never would have made it withought the booze. Sure he lost his fingers, a foot and some of his other foot but better than dying in a ditch right?
>>67868799Don't worry buddy, i'll be joining you soon
>>67868839jesus this entire situation is brought on by alcohol, wtf man
>>67868839.Dude was missing fingers and a foot? You know what alcohol does to blood, right?It's more like he made it in spite of the booze, ain't it?
>>67868797idk man my dad is an alcoholic and he does Ironman triathlons
>>67868856The kicker is that the guy was in the bar 3 days later. Went straight from the hospital didn’t even go home first. I quit drinking after seeing that.
>>67868801Alcohol =/= beer. Beer is starchy, full of carbs, and aromatizes into estrogen because of the hops. Neither wine nor liqour does this.
>>67868904Holy fuck. I drink alot (been cutting down) and that is probably the worst i've ever heard
>>67868767That's like after 6 servings worth.
>>67868658the blood sugar effect varies based on your individual physiology. It is processed immediately because its recognized by your system as a poison. This means that it is burned before glucose, which usually will increase free blood glucose.There is a small effect on blood vessels, and its true that moderate drinking might reduce heart disease risk slightly, but it is heavily dose-dependent like most poisons. 1 or 2 units is a very small amount of alcohol.There is nothing you can put in your body that is unequivocally good for you. There are no 'weird tricks' in nature. It increases risk for all cancers slightly. How can injuring your esophagus and stomach lining with strong alcohol not result in disease eventually? Hot water also will eventually cause dysplasia and cancer.Have a drink, idgaf. But its not healthy beyond 1 or 2 units. Thats 2 weak drinks or 1 strong drink per day.
>>67868839Maybe he should have called a cab
>>67868658A lot of these claims fall under the 'citation needed' category.
>>67869120[citation NOT needed]
>>67868658>boosts testosteronein reality it does the opposite.
>>67868658The only drugs that does more damage to your brain and body than alcohol are crack and meth. Alcohol is legal for cultural reasons, but if it was a relatively new substance it would have been rightfully classified as a schedule 1 drug
>>67868658>boosts testosteroneYeah every alcoholic I've ever seen was a totally jacked high T chad.All of the people I know who swill beer all weekend watching nigger ball all look like Rich Piana.Fucking retard.
>>67869156>graph of brain damage per drug>LSD is the lowestFound another memegraph shared by a retarded nigger. Yeah, one of the few drugs that makes you go clinically insane has least brain damage.
>>67869156It's fucking mental when you look at the facts about alcohol and then look at the UK with its pub on every street. Pretty confident the pub industry will be good as dead in the next 20 years.
>>67869210Confirmed for being retarded. Every drug comes with risks, but psychedelic drugs are only dangerous for those who are either already mentally ill or have genetic predisposition to serious mental illnesses like schizophrenia. If you were already programmed to become a schizo at age 30, you will turn into a schizo at age 20 if you were to consume psychedelics. To people with normal brains it's harmless.
>>67869229Lsd is for literal retards buddy but keep on coping. Shrooms is the only worthwhile psych
>>67869229>source trust me bro
>>67869263The only thing I care about are the risks, and psilocybin comes with nearly the exact same risks as LSD if you were to consume equivalent dosages of both. Despite the risks, they are still the least harmful drugs to consume for anyone who isn't already a nutjob or a schizo-in-waiting
>>67869324You can google it yourself, or if you have a source of expert opinions you can just look at this analysis >>67869156 from a top 5 international medical journal which had the top 25-30 experts on drugs in the UK as part of it. But you're probably one of those dense fucks who'll revert to "I won't trust the experts", while asking for sources from those very same experts
>>67869351Yeah, you've never taken hallucinogens nor interacted with those that take them regular or who used to. Please go back now.
>>67869366>but muh anecdotal evidenceOkay
>>67868975That's like every night I drink Jack
>>67869229schizophrenia doesn't exist
>>67869390you don't exist
>>67869142Smoke some pot instead bro it's much better for you.
>>67869371You're arguing with trolls or alcohol shills who work for the night time industry, who capitalise of people's problems and drug addictions. Don't bother. They're time is coming to an end.
>>67869399vape it bro it's healthier
>>67869220The drinking culture is too strong for anything to be done, and that has been the case for a thousand years in many countries. It's very addictive and if you take it away from millions of junkie citizens all at once you will have social unrest of your hands. One of the funniest things at the peak of the covid lockdowns was that in most countries liqour stores were among the only stores allowed to stay open, as it was considered essential
>>67869475Fun fact: the soviet union nearly fell a decade or so before it actually did, and for a simple reason: they tried to add a few kopeks to the price of vodka.The decision was quickly reversed.
>>67868658>Lowers testosterone>Terrible for health>reduces pain>kills bacteria>increases euphoria temporarily>decreases your energy>decreases your ability to feel things>artificially makes you drop your inhibitions and natural fear and anxiety, doesn't make you more confident>Realistically if you went out not drinking with the same attitude you had when you are drinking and having built up your confidence you would get laid just as much and wouldn't be prone to having sex with hampigs/getting stds or causing pregnancy from unsafe sex
>>67869475Yeah as it stands now for sure, but younger generations don't visit the pub now like they did back in the day. A change in the generational mindset will end most wet only premises.
>>67868917I heard that phytoestrogens actually decrease your estrogen levels because they are not as potent as the ones your body produces and they take up space in the receptors preventing the more potent native estrogen from taking effect
>>67868658its funny reading alcoholics here coping when theres 3 million alcohol related deaths yearly. your choice of drug sucks ass but thats ok, i like alcohol in social settings too but theres no reason to shill it.
Alcohol is nice. Comparing it to alcoholism is dishonest. Like comparing lifting to getting crushed by a pallet of bricks. Nondrinkers are always disingenuous pieces of shit.
Having a few light beers with some hot wings on the weekend is a pleasure I will not give up
>>67869864I think it might be because younger generations have access to an ocean of information online and are beginning to understand that alcohol is in reality a hard drug despite being legal, so why opt for that when softer drugs like weed exists
Only thing I drink is water, milk, espresso, and fresh OJ. Sober for almost 3 weeks now.Feels good boys
>>67869917Every drug, including alcohol, feels nice. And most people don't turn into addicts despite using them occasionally. I drink every once in a while, but I don't fool myself into believing that I am any better than some guy who snorts coke at parties as rarely as I drink, because I am in fact doing more damage to myself than he is
>>67868797Nice either-or fallacy, asswipe! You don't have to be an alcoholic to enjoy some booze now and then. Fucking DYEL
>>67868797>>your going to sayESL much?
How much is too much ??
>>67870463If you can't go more than a week without consuming a substance, whether that be heroin or alcohol, you have a problem
>>67868797>Have you ever seen a healthy alcoholic?You see them all the time you just don't know it. Especially in the legal field did you know 1 out of 3 lawyers are alcoholics? >>67869882>I heard that phytoestrogens actually decrease your estrogen levelsThat's dumb. They wouldn't be so effective at treating estrogen deficient ailments otherwise. They're commonly used in lieu of HRT for a variety of conditions related to menopause, from hot flashes and headaches to osteoporosis. If phytoestrogens worsened their estrogen condition by filling up the space with weaker molecules then nobody would use it. Additionally, anabolic steroids are commonly synthesized from plant sterols. You can go unironically touch grass, pluck it out of the ground, and turn it into steroids with the right equipment.
>>67870028>every drug feels niceThat's not true. Kratom feels awful. Alcohol's feel good comes from agonizing GABA in the brain. It's what makes you more social too. Funny thing about GABA, deficiency of it is associated with a few select mental ailments. Take a look at this and let me know if it reminds you of a certain website.
>>67868917based. this is why i only drink vodka, whiskey, or tequila. i fucking love beer dont get me wrong, but it sucks how carby and fat you get from it. hell, pro bodybuilders are known to get super smashed on liquor because theres no carbs in it.
>>67869220Theres stuff that probably should be banned when it has zero benefit like syrups and crazy sugars and stuff but when you want to ban alcohol because of your gay ass health system you might as well start shoving dildos up your ass
What are the best first date cocktails for girls bros?
>>67868917>>67871306Alcohol in any form is still one of the worst neurotoxins you can consume, and not only that but it nukes many organs too. As was said earlier, the only drugs which has a worse impact on users health and mental impairment is meth and crack. You might not get fat from vodka but you are still nuking your body
I worked out extremely hard yesterday, ate a ton of food and then had 9 beers. Did I fuck up my recovery?
>>67871479Moscow mule is great in my opinion
>>67871447Would you be in favor of legalizing every drug which has a lesser negative impact on users health than alcohol? Because then everything except meth and crack should be legalized. And maybe heroin. Most experts say alcohol is worse than heroin, but some say that heroin and alcohol are about equal so it’s up for debate
>>67871548thanks! hmm looks pretty tasty but I worry the soda will make me bloated and burpy? I rarely drink soda because of that
>>67871515Long term impairment from alcohol isn't primarily from alcohol use, it's mostly related to thiamine deficiency. Alcohol strips B vitamins from your body and brain. If you take a multivitamin, as i'm sure your do on a /fit/ness forum, you can avoid serious and/or permanent consequences. It's hard on your organs though, especially hard liquor, but most pharmaceuticals you take are going to be much harder. It's one of the big reasons why everything says not to use with alcohol. Not because alcohol necessarily interferes with the drugs, but because of how oral pharma drugs strain your liver. A few grams of over the counter tylenol is enough to kill you by shutting off your liver.
>>67871596Lmao are you a woman?
>>67868658>>boosts testosteroneStopped reading there

>>67871535wtf is this real?
>>67871623>implying you know how to read
This thread is filled with faggots who never have fun and can't hold their liquor. I bet you fags won't stand on your feet anymore after drinking 10 beers.
32yo, went out with some friends last evening until 7 in the morning and got extremely drunk, did cocaine and some ketamine on top of that, smoked half a pack of cigarettes and ate at a burger king in the middle of the night. My hangover is actually quite ok, just tired. What does this mean for my gains and how can future drunk me avoid these dumb decisions?
>>67868658> literally none of this is trueEnjoy being a fat, low t drunk with type 2 diabetes
>>67868658Like with anything in life, it should only be taken in moderation.
>>67868658>keeps you warm and alive during winterIt makes you think, that you are warm. Then when you start freezing, it feels even more warm. Thats why people fall asleep smiling and freeze to death when they are drunk. t. Russian
>>67871551legalizing every drug would result in less harm in the long run
>>67871551Heroin is harmless unless you take enough to knock out respiratory drive. Out of all the recreational drugs it's probably the safest. A lethal amount of anything is bad. The only laws that should be in place for drugs are labeling and purity related. It's absolutely insane that any drug is illegal.
I drink like 2-3 cocktails a week only on weekends.I'm very happy with my alcohol intake, it's great to just be able to have a few drinks on the weekend and enjoy the process of making them.
>nooooooo if you drink alcohol it fucks with muscle synthesis noooo>I don’t like alcohol I much prefer my Asian fart and herb water that cleanses the soul Reminder that drinking is not only part of being a man it’s also about rejecting tea drinking faggots
>>67872184I agree with you but the only people who care about legalising drugs are hippies, women and libcucks from cali-Washington coastline so I’ll call you a dirty faggot
>>67872144Better dead snug and happy than the dread of freezing to death
>>67872227I never could get guys like you. What do you get out of drinking so little? And dont say taste. Ive been a hardcore alcy for the last 10 years. Alcohol tastes like paint thinner.
>>67872332>what do you get out of itA slight buzz, feels good and relaxing>doesn’t taste goodI dunno wtf you’re drinking but whiskey sour and old fashioned taste fantastic.
>>67868839>my anectode disproves actual medical research into why alcohol makes you feel warmKill yourselfYou think cold alcohol magically combusts and raises your temperature once inside your body?Learn some basic biology and thermodynamics american retard
>>67869156These statistics are bunk when you consider the prevalence of each substance. On my 1.5mile trip home from work I passed two stores that sell liquor and beer, and one bar. When Walmart starts selling heroin we can revisit this idea, but untill then, everything in moderation is the key to a balanced lifestyle.
>>67869390Did the voices in your head tell you to post this
>>67872332Because i drink so little even 2 drinks gets me a nice buzz. And that's all i need to relax and have a bit of fun on the weekend.
>>67872227>plantation 3 starBased, my man
>>67872144Wrong. It imoroves peripheral circulation by dilating arteries. This makes you feel warmer (especialy in your hands, feet, and face). Only an idiot would think this means you should walk in a snowstorm naked. Coincidentally, one of the few survivors of the Titanic crash survived the ice cold waters by getting drunk before the ship went down. The alcohol raised his temperature and prevented his heart from stopping from thermal shock. Cope more virgins.
>>67871619>for girlsyeah I specified for a reason since I assume most guys get beer or whiskey etc
>need addictive substance to function as a manlol
>>67868658>gives you a disgusting alcohol gutim good
>>67868658I drink beer then drive to the gym to burn off the carbs
>>67868795Just pretend you're on it then lmao
>>67868658My daddy beats me after drinky time.
>>67875270Tell him "keep up the good work"
A work mate recommended I try a white Russian. Thoughts?
I walk to the gym, so I occasionalky drink both vodka and preworkout throughout my workouts. The lifts feel insane.
>>67875853Too much caffeine
>>67873029You seem to misunderstand the analysis. It doesn't count the overall usage, that would make no sense. It's on a per-user basis measuring equivilanet or standard dosages for each substace. The fact that it's legal seems to fool a lot of brainlets into thinking that makes it less harmful than its illegal counterparts
>>67873029>>67877294Having said this, heroin is a bit more addictive than alcohol is. But because alcohol is so easily available and still an addictive subtance, it comes as no surprise that roughly 40% of Americans report alcohol abuse having been a problem in their family. From a physiological and cognitive standpoint, an alcoholic destroys himself more than a heroin junkie does. Simple as
>>67868658Occasionally indulgence is fine. This could be alcohol, weed, psychedelics, party drugs, junk food, all night Vidya sessions etc.The problem is when it becomes a substitute for an actual personality. Your post is reminiscent of stoners with no other hobbies saying:>Bro it's just a plant bro>It has healing properties bro >Dude I was so high lmao Try socialising without it and you'll realise how fucking boring you actually are.
>>67877390>Occasionally indulgence is fineNice try Satan. Indulgence makes you weaker and makes it even harder to resist in future.
>>67877421Yeah if you're an addict but that isn't an issue for healthy people.
>>67868788It’s a mindset thing, you’re a beta cuck who says it doesn’t affect testosterone and or that it is bad and therefore your brain will tell your body no testosterone this not a high testosterone drink but if you drink it and are a chad (like me) and think this shits great your brain will be like fuck yeah this shits pimp and you’ll get all the happy chemicals and testosterone shit
For a long time I was anti-alcohol person as I've seen what it can lead to.Now, as I am older, I realize that this is nothing more than just a suplement for one to relax, improve his heart health a little bit and that is all.If you indulge too much into it, that's when the problems come.
