Like the article said, there are other possible causes of jaundice. But if someone has jaundice, a doctor will certainly ask about drinking habits. Someone who drinks daily and heavily probably has jaundice caused by alcohol induced liver damage.
Ideally though, people who like to drink should do themselves a favor and get a liver function test once a year to see how their liver is doing. Because by the time that jaundice develops, the liver is quite damaged. It would be best to diagnose the problem before this symptom, when it's only at the fatty liver stage. Then people will be more likely to recover completely as long as they quit drinking.
Or I guess the best alternative is to stop drinking in the first place to prevent these complications. Unfortunately, not many people think ahead this way. I know someone who wasn't an alcoholic and still developed liver damage from alcohol. So everyone's body functions differently and some people are more sensitive to the effects of alcohol.
