Fair enough.  To be fair, the last time I had issues is because I had the hot chicken pad thai and a cuban sandwich the same night.  That may have had something to do with the issues.

we had a great (if a little abusive) relationship my senior year of college. Now, it's like we never get together for heavy drinking anymore (stupid getting a job after graduating). Sure, we have a beer or so occasionally, but the 15-20 drink nights (on average) 4 times a week are a thing of the past. Occasionally I go back and try to rekindle the spark.... but my liver doesn't reciprocate. I'm like, come on honey! We'll do things just how we used to! and my liver decides, NOPE, you're going to pay for this one. 

If therapy suggests going on these 15-20 drink nights more regularly... would that appease or anger my liver?
