In brief: Not necessarily.

Drinking alcohol in moderation has proven positive health effects.
Drinking alcohol in 'excess' can be deadly. I would discuss the type, frequency, amount etc. With your physician so they can guide you.

In brief: Drinking

For the sake of drinking is not good.
A glass of wine or a social drink on occasion is ok. But drinking in general is not good for you. Have water instead
