Hi. I understand your concerns. if the clinical suspicion is high tb treatment can be started by the doctor. Smoking is definitely a cause for increase in risk of getting tb. Stop smoking before it causes more harm to you. alcohol consumption while on treatment for tb is strictly not advisable. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks
