With that said,.. it doesn't matter if you're drinking or not, drugs or not, if you are causing harm, no excuse! It's reckless, you aren't keeping your vows, you keep it up and you will find yourself in Vajra hell.

there are vows to take alcohol in tantra,.. but there are also vows regulating it,.. specifically how you appear (because 1 bad practitioner can destroy a whole community by being a reckless jerk), who you involve yourself with, and of course your conduct.
