Anatomically, the right upper quadrant (RUQ) of the abdomen includes: liver, gallbladder, pancreatic head, bile ducts and ampulla, c-loop of the duodenum, stomach antrum and pylorus, the hepatic flexure of the colon. Don't forget the diaphragm and lower chest are pretty close by. The abdominal musculature, ribs, and skin can all contribute as well to localizing RUQ pain. Time to stop drinking!

Difficult to really say. Have you had the pancreas , kidneys and gallbladder evaluated. And to be honest I think you have been very fortunate thus far given your history of "heavy drinker" but do you really think that it is wise to continue to drink period given that you are now experiencing pain after alcohol consumption. Could be warning signs of a much larger problem.
