Question: Is it OK to get drunk if you get "Holiday Heart Syndrome" alot? I get it when I have a hangover, but can you die from it?

Answer: I would say that is dangerous to get drunk and you should not drink so much. It would be Ok to have some alcohol but not to excess "Regular consumption of alcohol in modest amounts does not seem to have the same potential to cause arrhythmias as alcohol consumed in heavy amounts. In fact, it has been shown in a sample of patients whose usual daily alcohol intake exceeds 6 drinks that the risk of developing atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and atrial premature beats is at least twice that of patients who drink alcohol at least monthly but who on average consume less than a single drink daily.
