Urination during or after intake of alcohol and water. Reason?

I have been a regular drinker for the past 6 years+ now. By regular I mean drinking mostly on weekends. Off lately I observed that while drinking alcohol or after consuming the same even the same holds for water, I do urinate but not as much as the intake is. I used to take Cod Liver Oil - Seven Seas when I was in school but hardly for 1-2 years

Dear tejasuthani,
I am very concerned about your drinking. Binge drinking can cause as much
or more damage to your liver than people who drink 1-2 glasses of wine or
beer on a daily basis. Initially what happens is that your liver cells get
damaged and are replaced by fat. This causes a condition called "Fatty Liver".
This can lead to inflammation and finally "Cirrhosis" which is not reversible.
This can lead to liver cancer and liver coma and death.
The end stage of liver disease includes kidney failure .
Hope I have talked you out of Binge drinking.
Good health.
