I'm not sure exactly what you are considering-- drinking is not absolutely contraindicated while taking morphine.  Yes, both morphine and alcohol are central nervous system depressants, so caution is advised when mixing them-- the morphine will have a stronger effect when consuming alcohol, and vice versa.  You may also be more prone to nausea or other side effects when combining the two.  And of course-- don't drive while under the influence from one, the other, or both!
The medical practitioners I spoke with recommend not mixing the two, and waiting 2-3 days after your last dose of morphine to consume alcohol.
