I can take a drink or leave it. It's never bothered me one way or the other. I say that because that's how I've always been.
Since I began suffering from CH, I just leave it because I don't even want to take a chance on the pain. When I go out I drink mix. I love bloody Mary mix. In fact back in my "drinking" days, half the time I drank Bloody Mary Mix. It just never bothered me if it had vodka or not. If you make up your mind to have fun, I've always found that it's not the alcohol, it's the attitude that does it. (and don't get me wrong, I had my share of hangovers too- my choice).
But it's just not worth taking a chance on the pain of a headache for me to take a drink or the chance of the meds not working because I've had a drink, so I just don't. I'm not a prude about it, I just don't do it. But if you enjoy your drink that much, it's your choice and only you can make it.
And that's my opinion... I could be wrong.
