Clean eating and living...or is it?

I'm curious as to how some people, despite taking up a "clean eating/healthy mind/healthy soul" lifestyle approach, justify frequent alcohol consumption and/or occasional hard drug use as fitting part of the lifestyle. I am curious to read about any anecdotes, studies, what have you, on the matter.

An example of this would be someone whose dietary restrictions are ideology based (e.g., being vegan), practices daily meditation and yoga, forgoes any western medication (OTCs like Advil), but consumes alcohol daily as well as the occasional use of a synthetic drug such as cocaine or ecstasy.
I'm not at all familiar with eastern philosophies, schools of thought, or religions. It seems contradictory to me, to practice a la carte, clean/mindful living. Is it? I'd love to get some perspective on this. Thanks!!!
