    I've been binge drinking on weekends for about six months now. I really want to stop soon because I feel it's not having a good effect on my health

    It has already I think, but the effects are not quite felt

    Sorry pal, you're in for it.

    Na really, all depends on the individual. Some people can be pretty much alcoholics for many years and they don't have any health problems. That doesn't condone it of course, because many people will have side effects, all you can do is 'detox' yourself from the binge drinking because if you're starting to feel it then surely your body is just internally screaming at you to stop before something serious happens.

    Difficult to quantify exactly. Dependent on a variety of factors. But typically, fatty liver will manifest itself first, before the onset of other, more severe symptoms.

    Ideally, sooner you stop drinking, the better, or at least, stop drinking excessively. The liver is a remarkably resilient organ, and with time, damage CAN be reversed...so long as the damage is not too advanced.

    Why do you say CAN be reversed?

    Just to cover myself. I.e. once it progresses to advanced stages, it can't be reversed.

    I'm thinking I'll give it up completely from now. I don't think I want to get to the advanced stages.

    I only binge when I go to the clubs. So I'll stop going to those. I don't really have a problem otherwise as I don't really have a reason to get drunk at home.
