Hi,

Welcome to healthcare magic!
SOME PEOPLE HAVE A VERY POOR TOLERANCE TO ALCOHOL AND OTHER ALLIED SUBSTANCES OF ABUSE.
BECAUSE YOU HAVE COME OUT OF THE TROUBLE TIMES, I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO AVOID ALCOHOL AND THE SHOTS DRUGS.
OPTIONALLY YOU CAN TAKE THE SUBSTANCE IN CUSTODY OF YOUR PHYSICIAN AND MAKE SURE IF YOU HAVE EXCESSIVE FLUCTUATION IN BLOOD PRESSURE AND BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS OR DIAPHORESIS.
IF REACTIVE YOU MUST AVOID THE SUBSTANCES TO BE SAFE.
I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!
