Depends on: Your ability to detoxify alcohol. Certain people have inefficient enzymes and can get liver damage and GI cancers with even small amounts of alcohol, while others seem to be spared. Moderation, especially with alcohol, is important.

Alcohol consequences: Some people are resilient and can absorb a lot withut results till late. But mental consequences are disastrous to self and family and to all your loved ones. It is deadly inherited and younger generations suffer much more than the first gen, from schizophrenia and severe mental problems along with alcoholism. Autism also is a result on kids, adhd, disabling anxiety.. Treat now.
