This surprised me. Believe it or not (check the link above) they say that moderate drinkers have less pain than teetotalers or over drinkers. I am a teetotaler and intend to stay that way. I have drunk occasionally, but not found it overly helpful for anything although now that I am taking the medications out of my body things should be easier to take if I do want a drink.
