Hi,At times moderate amount of alcohol is allowed,but the best person to answer this is your cardiologist.Depending upon your reports he will advise you,but do take regular medicines and go for regular exercise as advised this is most important.Alcohol and smoking is injurious to health if due precautions are not taken and you are already having established heart disease so be careful,bye and take care.
