    Default New Piercing and Alcohol

    Hi! I recently got my industrial pierced (on tuesday) and I'm in love with it. I almost didn't bleed when I got it pierced and it sweald but it got down quickly. I doesn't hurt much, even when I touch it (which I try not to do). I already had mi helix done in my other ear and it was kind of a pain (I got it more that a year ago and it still causes me problems, it hasn't get infected or anything like that but I had a few bumps on it that come and go and it bleeds when it gets pulled with my hair).
    Anyway, I have a big event this friday (3 days after getting it done) and I was wondering if drinking alcohol and smoking normal cigarets would significantly affect the healing process? It's not like I'm a heavy drinker (or smoker) but this friday is an special occation. I would like to know your opinion on the matter, could I drink? What do you guys recommend?

    I've never smoked (the one vice I never picked up) but I drank my normal levels of alcohol afterwards without a break. The risk is really that if you drink a lot then you may become a little careless and bang or knock your new piercing which could well upset the healing process.

    The alcohol and smoke itself won't do the piercing harm, at least in my experience.
