1. myself and my family are following strict vegetarianism. but very few of my relatives (due to their settling abroad or due to that influence) have started eating non-veg foods and i feel offended from within. pl tell me whether they cease to be Brahmins and is there any scope for condonation of the same in our texts?

2. i am a social drinker. very occasionally.. say once in two-three months, i consume limited alcohol. but some inner voice keeps on nudging me. pl tell me whether alcohol is totally banned or consuming it will make me non-follower of Brahmanism?
