In brief: Your doctor

In order to be listed for a liver transplant you need undergo a thorough evaluation and meet several criteria.
Transplant listings are ranked by severity not by time on the list. Generally people with alcoholic liver disease must be free of alcohol for at least 6 months and in an alcohol treatment program. You need to see your gastroenterologist for further details.
