    Thank you.

    Someone said that the alcohol will break down into sugar. Kind of sounded like a bunch of bull**** to me.

    If your out drinking, drink what you want to drink. Unless your being sponsored or your body is how you make your living, I think as long as you aren't going crazy you do what you want to do.

    Keep in mind the alcohol slows your metabolism, so calories shouldn't be your only concern. If you're going to try to justify drinking, don't - drink and have fun!

    Just don't drink to much. Excessive drinking can actually cause the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum in yor liver to turn to smooth. Hence you'll produce more fat on your liver :P

    The only thing close is some mary jane. Only thing is, if you do smoke it, you might end up eating everything in sight for the next 2 hours.

    I'll take the alcohol. :alcoholic

    lol, that makes absolutely no sense. You do get a fatty liver, but definitely not by the mechanism you said.

    If you're worried about calories from Bacardi + Coke then your drink ain't strong enough IMO. Stronger drink = less Coke for same amount of drunkness.
