Very unlikely

Artery
Clogged arteries could theoretically develop in adolescence, although this would be highly unlikely as this process generally takes decades to develop, except in very rare case, such as in the setting of severe hypercholesterolemia, long-standing poorly controlled diabetes or heart transplant.

Dr. Rodeen Rahbar answered:

can drinking alcohol cause clogged arteries?

How much, how often?

Arterial_plaque
Alcohol in low doses (1 drink/ day) may in some people delay the process of atherosclerosis. Anything more (2 drinks+/day) will have a net negative effect and can lead to multiple health problems including atherosclerosis. Alcohol metabolism leads to free radicals which interfere with protective mechanisms and stimulates inflammatory processes like atherosclerosis -- "clogged arteries" may result

Dr. Rawan Tarawneh answered:

Can a clogged heart artery affect the brain?

Many possible ways

Cardiac
Clogged heart arteries may be associated with hardening of the vessels in the brain because these 2 conditions have many of the same risk factors (diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, etc). A clot in the heart may travel in the bloodstream and cause a stroke in the brain. It the heart clot affects the heart's ability to pump blood efficiently to brain, other problems due to that may also occur

Dr. Anass Zaitoon answered:

How can I tell if I have clogged arteries in my heart?

Assessing risks

Atherosclerosis
Do you have symptoms? Are you a diabetic or smoke cigarettes? cocaine? etc..If not, your risk given your age and female gender would be low . Your doctor may order an EKG/Stress test if you do have symptoms but we do not routinely screen young women without symptoms or risk factors. What I would recommend is checking your cholesterol and working on preventative measures.
