laffin--glad you brought this post back up! Seems like I have just about a kazillion things to toast each day--I enjoy my Miller Lite, and ohhhh, the occasional glass of Merlot! Drank before, during, and after treatment--retirement is kinda hard on me because happy hour can start any dang time I want!

moderation is the key! So, I tell myself--you can have a glass of Merlot--you can't drink the whole bottle......I tell myself I can have a beer, but I can't drink the whole case in one day!

sorry--but I like my booze...and, I've never quite understood some of the hysteria over oh my god I had a drink......glad this thread has activated again--helps to know you're not alone!!!

Why does alcohol always get such a bad rap?

Janis L

I still like my red wine, too, but am going to give it up awhile to try and lose a few pounds.

I think it gets a bad rap because it's processed by the liver, and that may have let some of the estrogen get by (for us er+ gals) and stick around in bad places. That's just a theory I've heard, my onc. says nothing about alcohol has been proven, and I'm sure many other factors were also involved in my bc. (taking birth control pills, being around other chemicals, having mono as a teen, and on and on.)

If we are on Tamoxifen, we should not have that problem at all. The estrogen is not sticking around anymore.

I've also read taking folic acid along with our B vitamins is helpful if you drink alcohol.

Can I join the drinkers in this forum? PLEASE?

I didn't drink during chemo as it tasted terrible to me. I guess I saved a lot of money during tx but I think I've more than made up for lost time! Cheers!

I am so glad to see there are drinkers out there. I haven't had a drink since I started chemo - not because I'm clever but because I feel ill. Today is my birthday 36th so I'm going to have a vino tonight and see how we go. It doesn't seem fair to feel crap without the giddy pleasures that usually cause hangovers.

Cheers to you all...
