I am 21 years old. I have drank alcohol about 10 times or so. The last time I drank was a year ago. I never want to have a drop of alcohol again because I have heard it causes brain damage. Do you think I have brain damage from drinking 10 times? I have had a few nights in which I did not remember everything. How many times does one need to drink alcohol before having permanent brain shrinkage/damage?

well, it will be your liver that is going to suffer first... brain damage is rather relative: its the nerve cell death, happens every time you drink, especially if it is low quality alcohol. i don’t think 10 times can make such a difference, and considering the time of abstinence, you should be fully recovered by now.
