Alcohol is known to damage pancreas. Pancreas produces insulin. In diabetes, the insulin productin is hampered leading to high sugar levels in blood. So taking alcohol while having diabetes will further worsen the condition. Best will be to just quit. Take help of deaddiction centers if not able to quit.
