"No, they were not drinking too much yesterday." Is this also an acceptable translation?

So I guess, "No, they were already not drinking too much yesterday."

The construction PLUS negative verb = no longer, not any more.

Please--- They didn't drink too much yesterday. They no longer drink too much is not only yesterday.

The no longer is there for the Czech . You cannot just ignore it.

Why is 'no, they were not drinking too much any longer yesterday' wrong?
