Depends, often yes: Alcohol harms the liver in stages, and until the very end stages (cirrhosis = scarring), the damage is reversible if one stops drinking. First is alcoholic hepatitis, which can show just on lab tests, or can cause right upper abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, bloating, jaundice (yellow skin), bruising/bleeding, and hormone changes. Quitting drinking at any stage will improve health & decrease risks. ...Read more
A healthy liver can metabolize alcohol at a brisk rate; a person with liver disease or an elderly person will likely metabolize it more slowly, so there's no single answer.
The half-life of diazepam and its metabolites ranges from 20-200 hours after a single dose of valium. This is deposited in fatty tissues, and so with chronic use, detectable levels can persist for much, much longer. ...Read more

Probably not, but...: You can get just about all of the benefits by eating a banana or two a day. And as a GI doctor i recommend avoiding one of the ingredients, cascara, on a daily basis unless prescribed by your doctor. The amount of alcohol is probably negligible.

Progressive fibrosis: The liver becomes progressively more fibrotic and functions imperfectly. Fluid accumulates in the abdomen and other organs become affected in late stages, such as the lungs and kidneys. Early changes may be reversible with alcohol abstinence but once into late stages the changes are not reversible. ...Read more
No: Some people are inordinately affected by alcohol, just as some are affected by tranquillizers or other medicines. Sometimes people who are very sensitive will look intoxicated after even a single drink, something called pathological intoxication. This sensitivity is from your brain and nervous system, nobody can explain it, and it is not likely anything to do with your liver. ...Read more
Why do the liver cells of people who abuse alcohol and drugs have an increased amount of smooth tissue?
Alcoholic liver : Not sure what you mean by smooth tissue. Generally, early in the disease alcoholics get more fat in their liver, followed shortly by liver inflammation, and eventually by fibrosis or scarring of the liver. At that point the liver appears shrunken. and hard in texture. .Best to try to quit drinking now. Your doctor can provide help. Good luck. ...Read more
If I drink 10 units of alcohol in 1 night once per week or once every 2 weeks, am I likely to damage my liver fast?
No, but other harm:: Exceeding 3-4 units daily can lead to liver disease. 1 unit=10 ml of pure alcohol = 25 ml of 40% whisky = 8 oz of beer( 0.4 pints uk). So it's not likely that you would damage your liver BUT it's more than likely that you will become intoxicated, suffer poor judgement and accidents, and hurt your relationship with significant others if they are around you.
