Yes it can: Yes, this is binge drinking -- a form of alcohol abuse, which can damage your liver. See your doctor about this. Not only liver damage is possible, though -- it's also neurotoxic, and can increase your risk for heart disease later in life. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/259560.php findings with binge drinking were similar to damage caused by hypertension and high cholesterol. ...Read more

After alcoholic fatty liver reverses, is drinking actually dangerous? I don't see myself never having beers with the guys or wine with my wife.

After alcoholic fatty liver reverses, is drinking actually dangerous? I don't see myself never having beers with the guys or wine with my wife.

Potentially yes: Drinking leads to fatty liver, which is reversible once you stop drinking, if there is no scarring already. For you to know if there is scarring in the liver you would need a liver biopsy. Alcoholic fatty liver can then turn into cirrhosis, which is non-reversible. You can probably get away with a drink every now and then, but nothing on a daily / regular basis. ...Read more

If you want to lose weight is it better to stop alcohol if you drink a lot of beer?

It would help a lot: Alcohol has a lot of calories. So cutting out alcohol would do you no harm and would be a good way to cut down on calories. One 12-ounce can of beer has about 150 calories. Multiply that by the number of cans you drink and you'll see how many calories you eliminate. If you're having a hard time quitting see your doctor or an alcohol counselor. ...Read more

Is it possible to feel alcohol withdrawals everyday if i typically only drink 4-6 beers a night during the week and 10+ fri-sun?

Is it possible to feel alcohol withdrawals everyday if i typically only drink 4-6 beers a night during the week and 10+ fri-sun?

Yes you can feel it: Often an alcoholic will try to drink several times a day because withdrawal symptoms can develop as early as 6-8 hours after the last drink. A sign of alcoholism is called "eye-opener" drink--meaning upon waking the person needs a drink right away to actually get going because the symptoms of withdrawal starts to kick in. I suggest cutting down on your drinking and consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
