At this time in my life (I’m not a teenager anymore), I see less and less use for alcohol. It subtracts from my available time. If I don’t drink, I gain extra 1-2 hours each day I don’t drink. The health considerations are big. If I am on a “good schedule” and eating well, exercising, and doing well overall, and then if I stop or if I drink alcohol, I can physically feel inefficiency creeping in. So, there are some uses which we’ll discuss later, but overall, and especially for people well into their careers, alcohol is much more harm than good. Avoid.
That’s a negative term; avoid
