Default for those that train/compete

do you drink alchohol? obviously not when youve got a fight comming up soon, but on the weekend is it ok to have a drink? will it have any permanant effects afterwards?

Yes I enjoy the occasional tipple once it dosent interfer with anytraining or preperations with upcoming fights after 5 or 6 days of hard training I feel its ok to have a few drinks on your day off.Let of steam and relax.

I do it. I wouldnt go out and get hammered if u have training or ur working out the next day. I don't think that the drinking effects me too much...I only do it about once a week though. I'm sure it would effect u if ur doing it 3 or 4 times a week.

Also, I drink liquor instead of beer so I don't gain as much weight.

Yeah, beer puts weight on. So if you are trying to keep it down, then stick to spirits. Alcoholonly really affects your reaction time and judgement, so it shoould be ok as long as its a decent time before you train.

BTW Kostya says in his first book he loves a beer, and when not training for a fight usually has a coldie after training.

I hardly drink at all during the competitive season, but outside of it I binge like a maniac.

me neither. I dont even like it. Not like some of my friends just wait till the weekend just to get drunk and that's all they live for. Last time when I said to them that I don't drink they looked at me like I was from a diffrent planet.
I just dont like it!
I know B hopkins doesn't drink and doesn' smoke.

I never drank until I got to Wildcard, I would go to a my friend Big James's fights and almost always after he fought we would get drinking, but drinking leading up to a fight can not be good, I have never done that, since I havent been boxing any more I have drank a bit not like every day but its nice to finally be able to get to do things you have kept yourself away from for so long.

Whenever I fight I usually wind up going out with my boy who also fights and we head to a party and ill drink. I hardly ever drink anymore I used to be drunk all the time before I took up boxing training.

hmmmm
If I liked it I would probably drink occasionaly, it's just that I don't know what the fuss is all about. When I sit with my co-workers or my friends and they always talk about getting drunk, throwing up and they all think it is so cool to get drunk and wasted. I can hardly drink 3-4 beers one after the other. I think that drinking in moderation is fine but not like 80-90% of people I run into. They live on that. If it wasn't for that party on saturday or for that cluubing on friday they would be depressed all the time I guess.
I don't know Either I dont fit in here or I was not supposted to be born in that era

There are people that will try to fit into that lifestyle just to fit! so they won't be looked on as losers or geeks that don't drink or smoke. They fall under the pressure. I dont get caught up it that. I will go out once in a while when it's my friends birthday or some family event but other then that I rather go to gym or attent some tournament and watch fights or just simply read a book.

i like a bud every now and then. by the way how much is a 6 pack of budweiser over there in the US? it's my fav beer but it's a bit expensive and hard to find.
