Alcoholism is dangerous and it not only harms the liver, it can also lead to various other physical and mental problems. Too much of anything is bad....

Hello I read your comments on your health problem. I am going through the same thing with a friend here in California, I can't comment on your stage of health but my friends only got 2 or 3 weeks left. The Dr says the liver does not heal it self. His stomach has to be drained every 2 day's He is now turning very yellow. I wish you the best and may God help you back to total health.

My husband is a heavy drinker of whisky. He consume around 500ml of whisky a night and has been alcoholic for more than 10 yrs and is now suffering from liver disease. He starting noticing a pain in his liver area 4 weeks ago and now showing a jaundice or yellowing of his skin and eyes and so as his stool and urine. Are all these symptoms of a severe stage? I think he's got a hepatitis liver disease which worries me and my sons health. Is this contagious or transferrable if it is how? He completely stop drinking as soon as he starts to see the sign and symptoms and trying to eat more healthier food. For how long would he suffer this disease? And is it still possible to cure this?
