Zieve's syndrome: Although quite a rare illness, there is something called Zieve's syndrome, wherein alcohol consumption can lead to hemolysis. The mechanism of hemolysis in Zieve's syndrome is not entirely understood. Alcohol is a toxin, and has damaging effects to the body -which is really too bad. Hopefully you can get some help, as hemolytic anemia can be bad news, as well as the liver problems etc with alcohol
