Also, chariy were you actually an alcoholic or just partied a lot? I go out every weekend, wonder what my liver function would be at...
I will have to admit I've had a bit of a drinking problem in the past. Started off by partying a few times a week, to every day, then to a point if there wasn't a reason to go out and drink, I would drink myself to sleep alone in my room. Was going through two handles just drinking at home every week at my worst point. Those days are long behind me though and I'm a better person now.
It's still a good idea to get your bloodwork done since everyone's bodies react to alcohol and anything else.
Same rule goes for sleep. I do agree that the 8 hours doesn't apply to everyone but it's a good baseline to start with. I know guys that run fine on 6 hours a night and have more energy than me. On the flip side, I know guys that need 9 to feel okay.

And yeah, my warm ups are long as hell compared to the average gym bro. Soft tissue work, mobility and warm up for the major compound lift for the day usually takes 20-25 min. The workout itself is like 45 min and then another 10 of stretching at the end.
Yea, my workouts take anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours total.
