Alcohol's effect on training

I want to start off by saying I train a lot. 5-6 days a week either grappling, boxing, or weight lifting. With that being said I'm 6-1 / 185 and most people consider me skinny. I do feel that I am in very good shape though, and usually when I grapple with people they agree.

My two foe's are in-n-out (if you don't know what is is, don't ask. You won't understand) and alcohol. I like to drink. Usually 5-6 days a week moderately and 2-3 days a week heavily. I've head that this could be seriously detrimental to my training. I know that alcohol slows down the protein process. But it may be having a bigger effect than I think. I typically eat healthy and workout almost every day.

A typical day of alcohol consumption for me is 3-4 beers. On weekends 5-10 beers (or more) if I go out. Im 24 and most of my nights out with friends consist of heavy drinking.

Any advice from nutritionist or people who have experience in this area would be good. Thanks.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Yeah man you have to control that drinking. Your almost putting alcohol into your body everyday, which is terrible for your muscles to grow and slows down the process. Alcohol also makes you store fat more easily, I know you said your skinny but I think it will eventually catch up to you. Like im in college and only drink 1-2 times a week MAX. Drinking 5-6 times a week will catch up with you and is definitly not good for long term health.

What kind of advice are you looking for? Someone telling you its okay? Someone telling you to stop?

If you want to get anywhere competitively, you have to stop.

If you train for the hell of it, then keep drinking if it's that important to you.

Drinking is good for health but when you have it in high quantity it will have adverse effects on your health. This will in turn have affect on your training, so it would be better if you cut down and limit your drinks to a 2 or 3 to the maximum.
