Hi ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.

Drink as you already know is like a slow poison, which damages your liver gradually and permanently in due course. This is more so if you already had a pathological liver disease earlier. So your liver is now more vulnerable to the damage initiated by alcohol.

There is no safe limit of alcohol for those who already had a liver disease. I know you are young, and that is more of a reason to abstain completely from alcohol, so that you get a fair chance of enjoying your life with your family and friends in a healthy way for a longer duration ; one fact is that you can enjoy parties only when you are healthy, and to remain healthy, you have attained the age in which you can decide what is good for your health. When you drink with your friends, no friend out of those would come forward to donate his liver for a transplant if you need one due a alcoholic liver failure, and all the transplants are not 100% fool proof.

And no reason in the world can be taken as an excuse for indulging in alcohol and I hope this much of information is sufficient enough for you to decide against drinking any more . If you still do, then the bitter truth is that God only can save you, as doctor is just a human being just like you.

Thanks any ways for choosing health care magic for your doubts on drinks. I hope this information will help you in your efforts for saving your own liver from the gradual hepatic dysfunction resulting from alcoholic drinks. Good luck.
