if you were not on daily basis

User :   i dont drink unless i go out once maybe twice a week
Doctor :   but the symptoms are only after drinking right
User :   yes
User :   always the day after
Doctor :  
ok then you shoul know this
Doctor :  
people might think that everyone want to avoid alcohol so they are blaming it
Doctor :  
but it is documented
Doctor :  
that alcohol not only gives kick
Doctor :  
but also stimulates those cells which secrete th acid and an enzyme pepsin
Doctor :  
by direct stimulation of the stomach wall and
Doctor :  
by irritating the stomach and oesophagus and the intestine in order of its effect
Doctor :  
then when absorbed it goes to the liver were it is detoxified- means its poisonous effects are counter acted
Doctor :  
as the days pass on the livers function is hampered and when it cant handle people become chronic patient
Doctor :  
that is fine for few days patient for few days
Doctor :  
and of course when liver signs are there gall bladder also pushes back the bile one by direct irritation or by acidity
Doctor :  
when the stomach cant bear the increasing acidity it gives way
User :   ok
Doctor :  
that is the acid acts on the stomach wall causing ulcers
User :   this sounds bad, will it get worse? should i stop drinking or are some things better to drink then others?
User :   this is really helpful thanks
Doctor :  
if they are established then its bad
