Hey /fit/.
I have a simple question, however, as I'm a gym newbie, I'm pretty clueless.
So I've started to go to the gym and lift about four months ago. I've got myself a coach, who gave me my diet and a whole training and all that jazz.
I've started at about 190cm and 55kg, and currently, I'm weighing at about 65kg, so I'd say the bulk is getting pretty good.
However, even though I follow my diet closely and whatnot, I can't get off of my habit of drinking. I do about 5 beers and two shots daily. And besides the obvious problem of going drunk to the gym, which I've done only a couple of times, could this affect my gains and growth somehow?
Thanks alot, /fit/.

It will absolutely CRIPPLE your possible gains.
The average can of beer has 154kcal x 5 = 770kcal DAILY, not even taking the shots into account.
Not to mention that alcohol has a negative impact on overall strength.

You were a skelly, you are still a skelly, but 10kgs is a lot for a skelly, so good job gaining all that.
Stop drinking. It is horrible for your gains and growth. Beer in particular is full of empty calories and promotes estrogen production reducing your test and fucking up your gains. Stop drinking right fucking now. get drunk AT MOST 2 times a month, and do it by mixing cheap vodka with low sugar mixers.

Aight guys, thanks. It will take some time to break the bad habit, but I'll try to get it down as soon as possible

I wouldn't go cold turkey on it, that will just make you even more likely to relapse onto it.
Wean yourself off of it, doesn't even need to be fast.

Just try and lower it to maybe one less beer, or cut out the shots. Do that for 2ish weeks, and then try and cut out another beer, so on and so forth.

You may very well be screwing yourself if you stop drinking too fast.

Good luck man, you will see a huge difference once you're done drinking (at least regularly).

>1,90

Daily reminder that skellingtons like OP are the ones trying to poke fun of manlets.

Don't feed them attention or you're gonna get your gains spooked away.

Just drink Spirit Waters

Vodka Water
Whiskey Water
Gin Water

Well-filtered liquor by itself isn't as damaging as beer or mixed drinks and has a fraction of the calories

op you're an alcoholic and you need help. drinks won't ruin your gains much but you have bigger problems if you can't control yourself. forget about micros/calories whatever.

Skellies are atleast able to do something about it, and as you can see, I am :^)

Not really in the yet alcoholic phase, it's just the peer pressure and all, so it's hard to say no. However, I'm not the type who'd get drunk alone just for the sake of getting drunk

>I do about 5 beers and two shots daily.
Shit dude, i was gonna say nah it won't do shit but nevermind that. 7 drinks every day is definitely going to ruin your gains. That's just as bad as the people sucking down packages of soda cans every week.

For myself, I quit drinking during the week. Switched to grapefruit juice. I fucking love grapefruit juice and it's bitter and chewy like my favorite hoppy beverage. One night every weekend I'll go drink whatever at the pubs with my friends. Drinking alone isn't fun anyway.

being a peer pressured bitch is literally worse than being an alcoholic, which you still are technically, op. don't kid yourself.
>>
>>35616736
Well, I don't really mind it though, I wouldn't pay any attention to it, if it didn't come to my gym routine

Still making excuses despite clearly just being razzed to me shows that you actually do feel bad about it. I'm not the guy from before by the by.
