I would like to know a few more things in order to come to a good conclusion

Please let me know what alcohol you consume and whether you mix it with soda or water. Do you consume exclusively on Saturdays and no other days?

Hello

Thanks for the query

According to studies a person can take upto 80g of alcohol per day to prevent long term effects of alcohol. You are consuming alcohol at a safe limit, however I should mention that these studies have been done on european or american individuals and indians have a lower safe limit. Therefore I advice you to restrict your intake of whisky to 90 ml per week, get your liver function test done every year to see for alcohol related changes.

I hope I have answered your query
