Pain: Have to check pancreas , duodenum, and spleen . Possible pancreas inflammation, and ulcer have to be determined . Chek with your pcp. In the process stop drinking is recommended.

Of course: Alcohol use is actually declining, as is its abuse as reflected in deaths from alcoholic liver disease. I don't drink because it makes me sick. Many faith communities are mostly non-drinkers. I'm surprised (and a little sasddened) that you'd ask -- here's hoping you find nice sober friends. Best wishes.
