I've seen my spending on alchohol has been significantly reduced since I've received my CCW. A 12pack of Miller Lite now goes stale in the fridge before I can drink it. I certianly don't believe that consuming 1 beer over the course of an hour would impede my judgement or ability to defend myself but wouldn't want to test a jury if I had to.
The bad news:
my expenditures on accesories, amunition, range time, and CCW appropriate clothing has far passed what I would have spent on beer! But I wouldn't change a thing. Hoping my waistline will shrink a little and more of my clothing will become IWB carry appropriate.
HEY! Maybe I can be the new Jared with commercials on "Lose weight thru CCW!!"
