Beer on day of fasting
#11
I wouldn't. I try to avoid something I enjoy that much. I don't drink coffee either because I enjoy that a lot as well. The cravings for my several-times daily coffee and my "beer-thirty" and not following through are reminders of what I'm supposed to be doing: pennance.


Anything you're pretty attached to, I'd think pretty hard about ingesting it on a fast day. Fasting from food on a fast day is not a diet, it's to help you reflect on attachment, and if you merely indulge in something else you're attached to, you may miss the point...depending on magnitude of the attachment.

It's a judgment call, but I'd try to err on the side of 'caution' (kinda bad term here) and just not. It's only one day a week.
