Hi daddyslilgurl,

I think that it is great that you are trying to educate yourself about hepatits C. In addition to quitting drinking and seeing a good doctor asap, as Tiff said, here is a slideshow that explains the basics of hepatitis C and will get you started in understanding the disease. You can find more information in our Hepatitis Health Center . You may also be interested in this page about living with and managing hepatitis C.

Best wishes,
Atti
