Related: Most likely this vomiting caused by this drink. Please observe yourself. If it happens again you need to see a doctor. Now, please drink water and avoid spicy food.

Poisoning: Alcohol is a poison and it never did anybody any good, ever, so stay away from it. It probably caused bleeding in your stomach. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age.
