maybe not for a healthy active lad who eats a good diet like yourself, but caveat emptor

I cannot remember where I read it... one of the medical docs my mrs sent me

but this random google for instance gave it as a rule of thumb

https://www.aspenridgerecoverycenter...-repair-liver/

Quote: Severe drinking may require three months to a year to fully regenerate the liver to its original capacity and functionality.

Sure, a casual drinker who has a sherry with their sunday dinner need not worry, and sure a moderate to semi heavy drinker will see much benefit after quitting for a month. But (not including proper alkies) us bingers are advised to have a full year off. I did 14 months (and regularly have 3 to 4 month breaks) best thing I ever did

Anywho, you aren't daft, good luck

EDIT link asking the semi-relevant question; does the human body really renew itself every 7 years? Just fyi

Decent. Worst nights sleep Iíve had in a year though. Alcohol coupled with the heat wasnít a winning combination in that respect.

Well done to all sticking it out. Iíve just done a week booze free and although Iím sleeping better already (heat notwithstanding) I really did miss having a few at the weekend. Massive well done to dunk, nearly a year? Bloody hell.

This weekend marked 2 years for me being alcohol-free. (And smoke-free, as I only ever smoked when I drank).

Might get c***ed after the Derby.
