Brief Answer:
Avoid alcohol, smoking, spicy food and capsule omeprazole

Detailed Answer:
I would like to know what symptoms you have?
Have you undergone any investigation to confirm this?

Certain lifestyle changes can also help prevent ulcers from forming. Limiting alcohol consumption, avoiding tobacco ( smoking) products, and properly managing stress can all contribute to a healthy stomach lining.
Do not starve, eat small frequent meals, avoid oily and spicy food. Add more fibres to your diet, restrict taking meat. Avoid carbonated beverages, coffee and tea.

Medicines -- Capsule omeprazole 20 mg twice daily half an before food for 15 days.
If this measures doesn't help then we have to rule out H pylori infection.
Hope this helps
Take care
