Sue, my Dad doesn't have the same cancer, nor probably the same chemo, but 
about hard liquor - I would think that's bad for anyone on chemo as it isn't 
terrific for anyone NOT on chemo!  However, my father did find that a little 
beer or wine (at room temperature) helped his nausea and improved his 
appetite.  He had to drink it before or with a meal though, not inbetween.  
His doctor said it was fine as long as it was no more than one glass and not 
on a chemo day.  -chris
