Cholesterol level and drinking alcohol contents in any case,might not be related. But the food you take after liquor might definitely be related to cholesterol level. Therefore you need to watch the diet and exercise to lower your cholesterol level.

Secondly high cholesterol level is accompanied with heart ailments risk. Such risk is doubled if you smoke and consume alcohol.

So consider quitting these two and exercise and diet. Get well soon,
