Is it correct to say the following sentence?

By drinking, I am trying to forget things, even if temporarily.

Or I should put it inside parenthesis? Like

By drinking, I am trying to forget things (even if temporarily).

You don't need any parenthesis. The sentence by itself is correct.

By drinking, I am trying to forget things, even if temporarily.

Even if -

Used for emphasizing that although something may happen or may be true, another situation remains the same

Example -

He's determined to prove his innocence, even if he has to go to the highest court in the land.
