Not caused by ETOH: Hepatitis B is not caused by alcohol use, however if you are alcohol intoxicated , you are more likely to have an unprotected sex which can be a cause for acquiring Hepatitis B infection. If you have contracted hepatitis B infection and have liver disease, it is better not to drink alcohol at all because of a possibility of further liver damage by alcohol.
