Congrats on: no alcohol since March! Klonopin (clonazepam) and alcohol don't mix so why don't you go with that non alcoholic beer. Yes, I know it's got just a touch but then so do twinkles. It will be safe and you can be the designated driver. Happy Halloween!

No: No amount of alcohol is safe with a benzodiazepine such as clonazepam. "Non-alcoholic" beer often contains a very small amount of alcohol.

Depends: It depends, of course, on how much alcohol you plan to consume. There are two main issues: 1) alcohol, especially excessive, and increase levels of propranolol. 2) Propranolol is often used to treat portal hypertension from cirrhosis, in which case alcohol consumption is a very, very bad idea.

You mean BCP's: There is no specific reason not to consume "social" quantities of alcohol while on most oral contraceptives, but you should talk to the prescribing physician for information on whatever pill you are on. If you miss the pill, and then drink, you may be disinhibited and engage in unsafe sex with all its consequences. Safe drinking in women averages 1 drink/day, and never 4 or more at one time.

Cure of what??: Firstly, the conventional wisdom is that people with chemical dependency, like people with asthma or diabetes, usually are not "cured," but their disorder can be controlled and put into remission where it is not causing harm. There are a handful of programs around that try to teach people with alcohol problems how to drink socially - one is called 'Managed Moderation,' but are of ? value.

No: Alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever, so stay away from it. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
