I remember hearing Master Lin tell the story of feeling socially trapped by friends to drink, so he moved the alcohol form his drinks to theirs.
I'm not recommending this as an alternative to treating your body right, but using the technique could help make your practice go further down the good-better-best road. I am a social drinker and when my practice was strong, I had a gathering where I was expected (and formerly had drank). I tried moving the alcohol from my drinks to others (and then just to the universe) and I felt none of the effects.
As Kev suggested, it is something to consider.
As Shawn said not consumer is better.
You are perfection,
