Drinking alcohol before a smear - bad idea?

I had many years of fuss-free smears before childbirth, but something seems to have been triggered and it is getting increasingly difficult. The latest attempt was a car crash, and had to be abandoned. I know I've got to get this done, but how? Would a stiff drink help, or are there reasons why that's not a great plan?

alcohol make your liver and body very weak.. so try to avoid it...

Meh, have a shot if it helps you. Just don't drink and drive.

I'd say it depends on the time of day. Afternoon appointment, yes... 9am, bit dodgy.
