Hello and welcome to HCM
First of all a big yes for the complete cessation of alcohol because alcoholism
is a factor that cause AVN or weakening of the bone. Alcohol does not allow the important nutrition to reach into the bone and thus causing weakness of the bones.
In my personal opinion please stop taking alcohol it not only delays your AVN process but also protect the other organs like liver
of the body.
So stopping alcohol will help you in all respects and has no side effects.
