BJT,

Forget about a cocktail for now! There was a time, and not too long ago, that alcohol was questionable after treatment with the type of cancer, treatment, such as being HPV related, and some did have a cocktail whenever. Now, they say no alcohol is good for you! I don’t have the articles off hand as I lost them in my files, but it might have been two or three years ago. You can look it up as I will probably too. It may even be on the discussion board here.

On the other hand, I now do have a drink occasionally, beer or wine. Maybe not even once a month or two. It was several years after treatment that I drank beer, which I could taste before soda and others, but it still doesn’t make it right.

Whatever decision you make do so being informed, and do so responsibly. Good luck
