Thanks for getting in touch.
People who are positive, as with people who are negative, should try to have a balanced and healthy diet. What this is will depend on where you live globally.
It’s OK to drink alcohol. However, this should be done in moderation. Smoking isn’t advised for anyone due to the health risks.
