If you're vegan and eating healthy, the health benefits of alcohol aren't worth the bother.

I notice good musicians always seem to take drugs. I think that's more because they end up desperately suicidal and turn to music then to try to feel better. And they are trying to assimilate also. It seems that a lot of artist types are really concerned with trying to fit in/be cool or whatever. Which seems really strange to me. But I remember I always got dissed because I was getting degrees in engineering and didn't dress right for them. I was stereotyped and dismissed.


I went to art school for a while, and I found the opposite to be true. Most of them would try harder to be shocking and/or unique than to fit in and be 'cool'. For most artists/musicians, the drugs had nothing to do with being depressed or suicidal, more as a quick way to try and tap into their subconscious and expand their creativity.

Thanks for the links :) I love grape juice I drink it all the time. Wine to me tasted like grape juice which has been left in a barrel for a few years and has gone off, but it was a long time ago that I had it.

Or grapes, or blueberries, or green tea, or white tea, or roibos (red) tea, or goji berries...!

Good work Gorilla if it is working for you. The abs look great!

For me, i'm enjoying a nice brown ale about now. :D I was alcohol-free for the first 30 years of my life, so I hear where you are coming from. Don't assume though that alcohol is a problem for everyone. I drink moderately and work out very intensely. One doesn't negate the other.
