Drinking Alcohol after Breast Cancer
Hi Everyone, I have been on this website a lot since my diagnosis (September 2022), and this is my first post, so please forgive me if this topic is on here somewhere - but I just couldn't find it. What are you thoughts about drinking alcohol after breast cancer? I am petrified of recurrence, even though I am at low risk. I am still having a few cocktails a week as we socialize a lot, but I always feel guilty when I do have a drink! I have watched some videos by Dr. Kristi Funk who sells supplements (Cosmo Companion) to supplement the negative effects of alcohol with methylfolate (whether it helps or not, I don't know). I know the best thing to do is to avoid alcohol completely as it also causes other health issues. I was just curious to what you all have to say about this as I sometimes find it hard to discuss anything related to breast cancer with family or friends because they haven't been through it (thankfully!). If there's a topic on this already, I'd really appreciate if someone can send me the link - thanks!
