after so much abuse to the liver via the virus it seems illogical to add alcohol to the already beat up liver.... they have non alcoholic products out there.

The rule has always leaned toward abstinence. People with cirrhosis should never consider the use of alcohol again, because it can lead to the advancement of it. Use of alcohol by anyone with chronic HCV (untreated) is a recipe for disaster. It can cause rapid advancement of the disease. I’ll insert the “pouring gas on a fire” analogy in here! 

However, there have been doctors and professional journals that have said, casual use shouldn’t present any problems for those without significant fibrosis. I wouldn’t recommend any heavy use, that would slow the recovery process required to return your liver back to the health we are striving for. That’s a conversation you should have with your physician.
