Do any of you guys that drink worry about damaging your liver? How can you tell if your liver is running optimally? I recently had a problem pop up (hemorrhoid), which I attributed (after hours of research) to some liver congestion as a result of excessive excessive alcohol consumption. Might be a completely off diagnosis but it got me wondering. I'm not a consistent throughout the week drinker but for the past 5 years I've been the kind of person who would get fucked up (borderline blackout or blackout) at least once a week and earlier on twice maybe 3 times a week. The past year I have worked on cutting back but still do this on occasion. I'm 23 years old. Curious what the odds are I could have done some kind of less than temporary damage to my liver as a result of this? Decided to not drink for minimum 3 months and wondering about doing something for my liver and see if I notice any effects from it. From what I've read, most of that cleanse stuff is bullshit. Thoughts? ---- It would also be cool if this could be a thread on anything kinda liver-related. Couldn't find any good thread on the topic.
