In brief: Will worsen situatio
Alcohol is usually one of the major contributors to liver damage.
Hepatic encephalopathy is a serious symptom of liver failure and needs to be treated very seriously. Continuing to consume alcohol or other liver-toxic substances will worsen the situation and ultimately lead to decompensated liver failure and death.
