Keep it moderate!: You chances of dying that night are similar to your friends who also should not overdo it if they care about living. But your special issues matter over time. Alcohol can overstimulate the heart and worsen the condition to the point that a mild case requires surgery. That seems foolish to me. Fun is possible w/ moderate drinking - learn how to do it. Best!
