These are symptoms of acid peptic disease.The pain after taking alcohol may be due to acute gastritis induced by alcohol.You should reduce the quantity of tea,chilly and alcohol etc. In the mean time you should take antacid and P.P.I .If it does not work then you are required to undergo Upper gastrointestinal tract Endoscopy to rule out any peptic ulcer.
