I can relate I was diagnosed with lupus at age 20 and now serveral other stuff and I'm only 22 so I know how it feels to wnat ot go out and have some drinks and party.
I feel that at times my youth was striped from me at a young age because of this illness not being able to do things the way I want and such and not being able to drink cause of the effects nad the medications.
But seriously you do have to be careful, alcohol can interact with meds and stop them from doing what they are supposed to do, and smoking also can interfere.
I would say try to stay away from them both and the odd time you feel the need ot be with friends just try ot have only one drink.
I don't think you're killing yourself but I do think you need to be careful and besides for me I don't drink anymore at all (that's just my choice)
I foud that the pain teh next day just wasn't worth it.
