In brief: Let's find out

If you have to ask, the liver enzymes may well be up because of your drinking.
If they go down to healthy ranges on two weeks of abstinence, it's your wake-up call and time to find other ways to enjoy yourself without alcohol. If not, look for some other treatable cause -- hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's, medication effect.
