How Can Alcoholism Be Treated?

Hi there. I ve been concerned about my excessive drinking and am considering stopping .. I had blood work done today as I wondered if my liver was affected. All results were within normal range except alkaline phosphates was 156. Doc said not to worry but maybe do an ultrasound. I can t help but worry. I also read breast cancer is indicated by high alp. What are your thoughts please?

high ALP alone is nothing in breast cancer there are many things presents along with high ALP like nodules discolouration of skin..weight loss lymph nodes etc. I would suggest you not to worry and try leaving your habit of drinking ASAP
