Research has shown that 1-2 cups of coffee per day can be useful in various types of liver inflammation. I feel that you are doing your liver more of a service by having stopped abusing alcohol, however. If you have continued concerns for your liver, your primary care doctor can do blood tests that will give a good idea whether you are having any liver problems at this time. Good luck.
