Drinking too much alcohol regularly can result in Alcohol-Related Liver Disease. There are no safe levels of drinking – avoiding alcohol is best for your liver.

If you do drink, healthy adults should drink no more than two standard drinks per day to reduce/lessen the risk of Alcohol-Related Liver Disease and alcohol-related injury.

Persons under 18 years of age and women who are pregnant should not drink any alcohol.

People who have liver disease are advised to avoid drinking.

The effects of alcohol
If you drink large amounts, your liver starts to have a hard time processing the alcohol. If your liver cells are worked too hard, they can start to become damaged. This damage can lead to fatty liver or fibrosis (scarring of the liver) and sometimes cirrhosis (serious liver damage).

In general, the amount of alcohol consumed (how much, how often, and for how long) determines the risk and severity of any potential liver damage.
