In brief: Smoking and HRT.

Smoking and HRT are very bad together, greatly increasing the risks of cardiovascular side effects, like blood clots and strokes.
Alcohol in large quantities, both primarily and secondarily, can have some estrogenic effects which could impact those also taking HRT, too. Smoking is dangerous enough just by itself.
