No it isn't: A beer, glass of wine or a single alcoholic cocktail isn't bad provided it does not make you intoxicated. In fact, red wine contains anti-oxidents which may be extremely healthy. However any, even a little alcohol is bad for an alcoholic because they can not control or limit themselves to just consuming "only a little".
