Addiction to Alcohol/alcohol now induces nausea-good or bad sign?

Question
Hi
This  may be more of a medical question but I am hopefull in your experiance you have encountered this.
I have been able to pretty much curb my alcohol intake to next to nothing since mid summer. At that time I was a binge drinker, and needed copious amounts to get the desired effect.
The last couple time I have drank recently, I actually felt nauseous-kind of like I did when I was a kid taking my first drink.
I think its kind of cool as it reinforces my desire to abstain, but I am a bit worried.
Does this indicate my liver is back to its old self and alcohol does not agree with it, or is it so damaged now that just a bit gets me sick. I sue hope its the former!
By the way, that is the only negative sign in my health I have noticed. My digestion, mood, energy levels, and just about everything else are improving. Thanks!

Answer
Hi Barry,

THus seems to be good signs. You may have been withdrawing from  alcohol addiction, and relapse may have induced these nasty feeling. Stay away from alcohol an don't touch never again.
