I'm pretty anti-social, so I have little trouble giving up drinking when I decide to. Beside that, alcohol is a second-rate drug anyway. I can think of other substances I'd rather use, but I don't use those either. I can tell you that cutting it out 100% for several months early on this year, did very little to help me attain any goals I had. So, this article is a little presumptuous.
I don't think the article was talking so much about the person that only drinks occasionally, and only has a couple of drinks when they do. I think it was talking more to the weekend partier. The guy that does strict Paleo all week, then Friday and Saturday nights are spent in the bars, getting smashed on their favorite booze.
I know that alcohol consumption (1-2 nights every weekend lately!) has led to a stall in my husband's weightloss progress and it has led me back to some symptoms that I'd rather forget about, we're thinking of forgoing all alcohol until New Year's eve. It would do us both a lot of good, I think!
I'm banking on the theory that our primal brothers also indulged in Magic Mushrooms and Marijuana time to time :smokin: :glasses: :smokin: :glasses:
