Cely I am not a medical profession by any means.

Alcoholic hepatitis is caused by excessive drinking. Which can lead to cirrhosis.

Hepatitis C is a virus that attacks the liver. Which can lead to cirrhosis.

Check out the American Liver Foundation's website. It will give you a better understanding of the different liver diseases.

Hope this helps.
