Most common: none.: The liver is most regenerative organ in the body, which means it can take a beating for years, and remains fully able to do its work of digestion, metablism, detoxifying. "early" sx of alcoholic liver disease may be fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, jaundice, dark urine, pale stool, ascites (fluid in abdomen), itchy skin. Unfortunately, it's likely already in an advanced stage. Stop, now!
