OK, so here's the story. The medical community doesn't completely agree about immune system and how it impacts your HPV. Things like weed, excessive drinking, bad diets, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, more stress, etc all lower one's immune system. Some booze is worse than others (ales, liquor, etc) where as red wine seems to be better for people. Do realize that a normal Pap result is still no assurance that you won't get a abnormal result some day or that cancer won't occur. When I was trying to prevent a second wart from appearing, I stopped all drinking. Spent an entire Summer sober. Was the designated driver for my friends and got very healthy. You should cut down to no more than 1-2 drinks per week and it should be wine. Reduce 420 consumption (via vapor or smoke) to maybe once or twice a week. Exercise more, eat healthy, get more rest, take vitamins and supps, eat healthy foods and you may get a normal Pap result. I don't drink to excess anymore. Two is enough. I would rather stay semi-sober than get another wart any day!
