doctor is it necessary to stop smoking,drinking alcohol for a person who was infected by hiv+?
Response from Dr. Pierone
Smoking is one of the worst things one can do from a health perspective (standing in front of a train is worse though) and should be stopped. Alcohol is ok in moderation. Anyone with a history of a drinking problem should abstain completely and get help to do so if needed.
