In brief: Possible but unlikel

Our liver is a remarkably tolerant organ able to put up with quite a bit of abuse.
While I can't put an exact number at which binge drinking causes liver damage, we never recommend more than moderate consumption, which is 1 drink/d for women & 2/d for men. And no, you're not allowed to average over several days of abstinence. Blood tests via your FamilyDoc can confirm health of your liver.
