What is best to do and what should I eat, after vomiting black after drinking too much alcohol and smoked weed?

Vomiting black: The best thing to do now after drinking too much, smoking weed, and then "vomiting black, " is to be seen by your physician.

Can drinking too much alcohol lead to diabetes?

Yes, sometimes: In very heavy drinkers, damage to the pancreas can occur (pancreatitis), which if it occurs many times can damage the ability of the pancreas to make both Insulin and digestive enzymes. The lack of Insulin can lead to a form of diabetes resembling juvenile or type 1 diabetes. In diabetics, alcohol worsens control in a number of ways, and is also a high calorie "food" - twice the calories of sugar. ...Read more

Why does drinking too much alcohol make us puke?

Too Much Alcohol?: Not everyone has this response, but alcohol can significantly irritate the lining of the stomach...Thus making it easier to have an upset stomach and to lead to nausea, vomiting, and ulcers.

Could going to church help me stop drinking too much alcohol ?

Not just going....: People find their way out of chemical dependency in many ways, including increasing their spiritual/religious observances. However, the mere act of "going" is not likely to have a major effect. People drink/drug because they are in some kind of pain, usually old trauma, and untreated underlying emotional/psychological issues.
