User :   Hello. I drank a bit too much last night and threw up. When i threw up there was a black gooey substance in it, almost like oil. Is this something to worry about? I had not eated anything black all day. I was drinking vodka and coke all night. I dont drink often. but i do go out around once a month and then i tend to binge drink. This is only the second time i have thrown up due to alcohol. I would really appreciate any advice. thank you.
