If you have been an alcoholic for quite a few years and you start drinking moderately is this okay? Liver enzymes elevated once back 2 normal now.

In brief: Is this wise?

Most people who drink heavily enough to make themselves sick have lost self-control and are wisest not to touch the stuff again.
The word 'alcoholic' carries a connotation that it's hard for the person to stop. Why play with fire? If in fact you just binge-drank and are over that stage in your life, your liver will be okay but get checked every so often. And think about being 'high on life.'

In brief: Yes

It's wonderful you're decreasing your drinking and you may want to continue to do that slowly.
Also increase your exercise and do some deep breathing.
