In brief: Please don't

Of course you're in charge of what you take and don't take, but alcohol and Lorazepam are both CNS depressants.
When taken together they have additive effects, resulting in increased sedation. This is a potentially dangerous combination -- in fact well-known people have died using such combinations.
