I was losing very slowly until I went alcohol free for 40 days. Weight came off much quicker then. Now I strive for balance. Drink alcohol only 2 days per week max. Amazing what this little change can do to speed up weight loss.
At 7 calories per gram, alcohol is a terrible choice for someone who wants to be healthy and/or lose weight. If I drink alcohol, I add a glass or 2 of water in between each alcoholic drink. I try to limit alcohol to weekends only. Its great to be able to have dessert instead and still hit my goal!
