In brief: Your symptoms may

Suggest hyperacidity, gastritis/ stomach irritation, gallbladder/pancreatic problems etc & drinking alcohol can definitely contribute to it.
Consider cutting down on the booze.Otc ppi/omeprazole and antacids/maalox, peptobismol may help. Seek medical help for reassurance. Take care!

In brief: Constipation???

Constipation, defined not by how often you go but by your stool looking like a banana, not round, hard and no straining.
Your banana should not be composed of round rock like things either. Are you eating enough fiber and drinking 64 oz water a day? If you have had this for a very long time and are otherwise healthy i usually look for constipation first, then other things if not.
