In brief: Probably

I don't know of any specific interaction that would be any more harmful than either one separately.
Both are poisons. Nicotine is a brain stimulant and can raise blood pressure. Alcohol is a brain depressant and depresses the highest centers first (the centers that differentiate humans from other animals).
