Like "I have no idea to what extent you're thinking of using alcohol again, but I would really caution you to talk it over with your doctor before starting again. Since you have not been drinking over such a long period of time, and since you were not diabetic and on the meds at the time, you really would need to be extremely cautious, as you have no idea how your body/system is going to handle the alcohol/med combo. I personally would limit my drinking to only an occasional drink, making sure you are not doing it at home alone, in the event you do experience some adverse reaction. Balancing things in our lives is never easy, but to remain healthy we often have to give up things we enjoy. "
