    Doubt it but alcohol is a hard drug so you’re playing with fire.

    ITS POSSIBLE .... have BLOOD TESTING for KIDNEY and LIVER FUNCTION ..... as in ACR ( albumin and creatinine ratio) and a GFR (glomerular filtration rate ) for kidney function ALT & AST for liver function both measure enzymes that indicate LIVER DAMAGE related to albumin and bilirubin

    to see TODAYS levels and once a year to see if any change results from consumption of alcoholic beverages for ones personal medical status

    per MERCKS medical manual STATS show about half the men that drink more than 8 oz of ALCOHOL a day for 20 years WILL develop CIRRHOSIS of the liver - ALCOHOLIC LIVER DISEASE

    There is no guarantee it won't. All of us have genetic predispositions and won't find out what we have until it is too late.

    Alcohol will damage your liver, your kidneys, your brain cells, and may cause diabetes. It is a cumulative effect, but with heavy drinking the problems show up sooner.

    Last year a global study changed the advice about drinking .. finding that NO amount of alcohol is safe to drink. Not even moderate amounts.

    It depends on the person. For some it may. For some it may not.

    No one knows for sure. Everyone is different.

    WILL? No.

    MAY? Yes.

    Will you die? Yes. So you might as well enjoy whatever lifetime you get.

    Doubt it, I generally drink 2-4 a day, and when I was younger drank 8-12 a day and my liver is still fine.
