Not an alcoholic, have not drank in the past 12 months, had a transplant 3 mo ago, doing great.sometimes in the past when my wife and I have gone to dinner, a beer with a steak was sure good.i know doctored will say u shouldn't drink alcohol, but if I have a clean healthy liver and am recovering great, is there a danger in this?

I think the biggest danger lies in it becoming a more regular habit. I was the same with protein and salt at about the 2 year mark after my kidney transplant. I had a wake up call and luckily my kidney wasn't damaged. All I can say is be careful. And talk to your transplant doc. If you can keep it to a (one) beer every few months, it's probably ok. But there are no guarantees.

Personally if I had my new liver I would do nothing to cause any possible damage to it at all. I am sure the transplant team and your hepatologist would probably say it is a bad idea. Why did you have a liver transplant to start with? Just curious.
