alcohol is not really good for you or your body

drinking more alcohol can cause stomach and liver damage long term

Anyway to fix it? I sure miss the good times with friends

you should take a holiday from alcohol use for 3-6 months

then your body will down regulate the alcohol dehydrogenase

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
