I actually drink far less than I once did. The reason? As already noted in this thread, nothing messes up meditation quite like alcohol. If I share a jug of beer with a friend over dinner, I can kiss any hope of jhana goodbye for at least two days.

No hell, just lower rebirth (if you believe that literally).

Makes one wonder, you wouldn't drink the wine that was corked, but a lower rebirth is not as off-putting, it seems... Then again for us Mahayanists it's not a problem - they need Bodhisattvas in the lower realms even more!

After one has taken vows, there is no question as to whether they should be kept purely.
