You need to make sure that you understand that diabetes is a lifelong problem that can affect every part of your body. If you are in denial you will not be able to take care of yourself effectively and will most likely encounter many more health problems than you need to.
Drinking alcohol is something you need to be very careful with when you are diabetic. You need to talk to your doctor to see if alcohol will affect your blood-glucose levels. If you are really not much of a drinker, it is best that you refrain from drinking at all.
