Prior to the contest prep I would drink a few times a month on the weekends. Vodka

When not getting ready to compete I try to limit the alcohol to once a week at most or maybe once every two weeks. BUT when I do go out it's ALL OUT
I think you can maintain a good physique as long as you limit yourself to no more than this and you watch yourself...as in stay away from nachos and pizza when you drink, etc. Also I stick to vodka and water or sugar-free coolers....soetimes martinis
Also I try to hit cardio the next day....not sure if it works but it's a mental thing for me.
I am much better about avoiding alcohol than watching what I eat. I just dont have a tremendous desire to "get wasted" or feel buzzed.
But, about once a year I may go through a 1.75L of Jim Beam along with some coke, every 6-12 months I may buy some MGD or Corona or whatever. Someone gave me a case of Corona for some computer work (friend) and I didn't turn it down, this was a few months ago I think moderation is the big thing, honestly though the more I allow myself to cheat the worse I get, the more I stay away from those temptations the less I think and care of them.
