In brief: Depends

Depends on what caused the lbbb (congenital or after a heart attack), and how much you are drinking.
Alcohol in low doses (1-2 drinks/day in men, 1 drink/day in women and older men) is often considered a tonic for the heart and raises "good cholesterol." in higher doses, it can damage the heart, raise blood pressure and cause heart rhythm problems. Talk to your internist or cardiologist about it.
