In brief: Alcohol and SVT
Alcohol is known to damage the conduction system of the heart and cause all kinds of arrythmia.
Svt is caused by an anomaly of that system. Alcohol surely unavoidably aggravates that anomaly, besides turning the heart muscle into a mass of jello that has no strength to pump blood properly (reduced ejection fraction). No alcohol abuse. Period !

In brief: Avoid it.
Alcohol can actually triger various types of supraventricular tachycardias.
Binge drinking is even worse. It may also impact on some of the medications that you might be on . Avoid it . Svt is usually curable. (radio frequency or other methods of ablation).
