No but...: you really shouldn't mix them. The combination with make you drunk very quickly and depress your breathing. It is very dangerous.

Hopefully, 60+ yrs: I'm thinking that you might have a part of you that wants another chance. This was an action that certainly is serious and may have done some significant damage - but it is not a drug that is reliable for ending life. Please don't take more - it may just do more harm. Please call a suicide help line - it's confidential and can really help you get through this hard time.

I took a .5 mg Ativan (lorazepam) last night (about 18 hours ago) is it safe to drink a few alcoholic beverages? Or will I die?

No problem: The Ativan (lorazepam) has a relatively short duration of action, and by now should mostly be "out of your system".
