In brief: Cigarettes

In addition to avoiding alcohol, cigarettes should be stopped.
You need to get an answer to the question "why do I have chronic pancreatitis?" that may be more important than taking pills.

In brief: Enzymes

If you don't have diabetes, taking pancreatic enzyme supplements with meals can relieve the symptoms of poor digestion.
Alcohol should be avoided since it can trigger acute pancreatitis.
