Can my landlord evict me for drinking too much alcohol?

Question Details:

After finding a bag full of beer cans in the recycling, my landlord has threatened to evict me for being an alcoholic. He commented on it as being substance abuse which I thought absurd but after rereading my lease the part that worries me is quote, "Nuisances - Excessive noise, drinking, loud music, parties and illegal acts are not permitted on the premises." Though he was told that I drink and I was told it was OK all before signing the lease. Ihave my roommate as a witness to this.
