You're good: Glad you quit. This isn't enough to give you cirrhosis, and without cirrhosis, your liver will heal itself magnificently after a week or two of sobriety. I've got an idea -- your liver loves it when you exercise. Why not really hit the fitness activities of your choice hard -- the quality of the people are much better than in bars, and you'll feel and look great.
