Of course it's OK to have different philosophies! And it's OK to be a little bit anxious, esp. with your family's history.
But as I said, if you are just drinking a little, not even feeling tipsy, there is no reason to test your milk. It sounds like that mama went on a binge, and of course it's not OK to nurse when you are sloshed, or the next morning, either (shouldn't drive the morning after a bender, either! I know one IBCLC lactation consultant who said, if you feel OK to drive, you are most likely OK to nurse.)
