CrunnchyVanManabsolutely, don't wanna sound like an asshole shaming ppl who drink and putting myself on a high horse cuz I'm more woke than everyone cuz I don't drink, but I stopped drinking about 6 months ago cuz it makes me feel like absolute garbage every time I do. It was throwing me off in all my sports and day to day life, then it started messing with my mental health and thats when I knew I had to cut it for sure. I feel so much better now in all aspects of life, I feel bad denying trail and lift beers with the buds but thats just how it be sometimes. Stick to the moderate cannabis consumption NS homies
Nice man. I think some people verifiably do love alcohol and it increases their enjoyment of life and is not at a level that is pwning their liver.
but i would encourage adults (18+) to experiment bc they might find a drug that is both better than alcohol and doesnt harm their athletic capability. Just bc something is legal doesnt make it optimal.
for me, opiates/opioids were the answer, and im still on them, in the form of methadone.
If you are extremely competitive in something like skiing, it is worthwhile to find a substitute for alcohol that doesnt make your liver heavy and doesnt put on worthless pounds in the form of fat.
but for the most of us, alcohol isnt going to drastically change our sports career success, bc we dont have a sports career.
i have so many friends who have become full blown lard-asses because they are consuming an extra 1500 calories a day in the form of alcoholic beverages. If you truly dont give a fuck, thats one thing, but sometimes its fun to not be a complete sack of shit, health-wise.
Word of caution though: one of my friends from college wrote an op ed in a big newspaper about how psychedelics like acid can be used to quit addictive substances. I felt it was reckless and biased as fuck to recommend psychedelics as if their were no risks involved bc they arent addictive, like it was all fun and games. My uncle went schizophrenic due to psychedelics and needed to take anti-schizo meds every day for the rest of his life.
Unless you are 101% secure mentally, psychadelics can be very damaging and they have the ability to bring on a quasi-global mental collapse in certain people.
just bc something is non-addictive doesnt mean its safe. And just bc something is
addictive doesnt mean its bad.
if something addictive is readily available then the looming threat of withdrawal becomes a non-issue. Psychedelics are not fundamentally superior to opiates just bc opiates are addictive. That would be an unreasonable opinion to hold.
