The alcohol content is so low it would not be of concern ...
The slight elevation of ALT is not here at a worrisome level _ ( it is well below 100 threshold which would be more concern...)
From your history it sounds that you may have had significant drinking in the past ?? That could fit with you saying you had liver injury in the past...
Lipitor can cause elevation of liver enzymes and this may be followed over time ...this medicine reduced cholesterol and risk of heart attack or stroke --- discuss with your doctor as do the benefits justify any possible risk from the Lipitor --- it is case by case careful evaluation ...
The LFTs might be monitored for example if you remain on Lipitor so they may be rechecked in 3 to 6 months to make sure they are stable for example ....
I hope that this is helpful for you
