You can still be straight edge, don't listen to fanatical Jay. People tend to judge others a lot. If you feel sxe, then you are :)
As explained in the faq, sxe is not about being fanatical about not drinking ect. Is about the fact that you don't go out every weekend and get drunk as h.... One beer is not abusing your body.

I think you're not sXe.the first principal is that you don't drink,and you're breaking the rule with that 'one beer a day' stuff.maybe you can consider yourself 'clean' but not sXe.you can't bend the rule...

If you drink you not edge.
Drinking one beer isn't as bad as drinking to get drunk but you are still drink alcohol.
sXe means no alcohol, no smoking and no drugs.

<b>NO. you are not sXe.</b>

Straight edge is a life long oath to abstain from all forms of recreational drugs including alcohol and cigarettes, and to abstain from promiscuous sex and moderate our sexual desires in general. These are the only guidelines for straight edge; all other lifestyle choices such as diet, religion, and political views are all optional pursuits often associated with straight edge.

Straight edge is an independent philosophy and is not directly associated with any creed, trend, music, religion or principle. Straight edge was born out of the hardcore music scene but the ONLY requirements of adopting a straight edge lifestyle is abstention from drugs and promiscuous sex.

The straight edge oath is one for life, taken to the grave (til' death). Straight edge is not for everyone. Straight edge is not flexible. Straight edge is a radical commitment to stay free of addiction and the destructive escapism common to society for your entire life. If you cannot maintain this oath until death, simply do not take it. If you must have promiscuous sex, call yourself poison free. The abstention from promiscuous sex is an element of straight edge often ignored or casually looked over by straight edge people but it is equally as important as not drinking, smoking or drugging yourself.

Some straight edge bands you might want to check out and especially read the lyrics of are Minor Threat, One King Down, Strife, Earth Crisis, Snapcase, Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Over My Dead Body, Judge and Good Clean Fun. A couple of other seminal hardcore bands which don't specifically promote the straight edge philosophy but do promote positive ethics include Sick Of It All, Warzone, Suicidal Tendencies, Cro-mags, Shai Hulud, Raised Fist and Madball. Google is your friend.
