Can drinking too much alcohol cause your liver to produce more cholesterol?

Razwell R
Cholesterol does NOT cause coronary artery disease.

Alcohol is bad for you for OTHER REASONS

Not too sure about this, but it is quite probable, as cholesterol could be produced in an effort to repair damage caused by alcohol. This link indicates that alcohol actually interferes with cholesterol's functioning, which also could cause an increase in cholesterol production.
Let's say that alcohol does raise cholesterol production. That would mean an alcoholic could theoretically have cirrhosis, and elevated cholesterol. Would that mean that the cholesterol is the cause of the cirrhosis?

On the other hand a damaged liver may produce less cholesterol.

@ ckm1956, can you actually produce any science to back up your claims?

Razwell R
Ignore ck 1956 He refuses to accept that the Cholesterol Hypothesis of coronary artery disease is a complete SHAM

Alcohol is NOT good for you . It might not necessaruily raise cholesterol but alcohol is BAD for you and VERY health damaging

it HARMS your liver.

And even if it did raise cholesterol this would NOT matter because
