In brief: Not recommended

Alcohol will dry out the tissue and delay healing.
Bleeding after wisdom tooth extraction also could happen as the alcohol raises the heart rate. Smoking causes constriction of blood vessel, leads delay healing and possible dry socket as the clot may be lost.

In brief: No smoking

Do not smoke after wisdom tooth extraction.
You increase the chance of very painful dry socket. Follow the directions from the dentist or oral surgeon that did the extraction. Eat a soft diet, drinking is ok but avoid alcohol while taking pain medications.
