Vomiting with black mucus after consuming alcohol, recently quit smoking. Cause of worry?

Hi I quit smoking about a week and half ago (not sure if this has any relevance) and I went out partying last night and got very drunk. I ve just thrown up due to the amount of alcohol intake last night and I threw up loads of black mucus type stuff. There was quite a lot of it. Is there anything I should be worried about? Thanks

Yes this is definitely to be worried as this black stuff could be the blood.
Blood from stomach,when vomited,is black in color because red blood becomes black after coming in contact with the acid of stomach.
You must consult a doctor and get yourself examined.
Alcohol can cause ulceration in stomach resulting in bleeding.
