[QUOTE=DDNYjets;4412509]He has ulcers you dummy. Drinking will make it worse, WAY WORSE.
Now that they have begun to show up in your intestine you need to fix it.
Are you a heavy drinker/smoker/tobacco user? If you are, the ulcers will never go away if you continue.
Also, did your doctor tell you that stress is the main cause of your ulcers? It might be your diet. Ulcers could be a sign of that you are eating something that you could be allergic to and it is damaging you. Food allergies will cause ulcers, even you do not get the traditional allergy symptoms. And the fact that it is in your intestine makes me think this could be food related.
If it is stress, which I think is only part of the problem, then it is hard to tell you how to alleviate stress if we don't know what is causing the stress. Some stress is unavoidable. Also my experience with stress is mainly minor agita which occurs in the throat rather than stomach and intestine.
If you want to alleviate stress, the best way to do so is exercise. Go for a walk. Find a hobby that you can do by yourself.
Hope everything works out for you.[/QUOTE]
Actually not completely true. I had ulcers a few years back when I owned a bar. The dr told me to quit drinking, smoking and caffeine. I was drinking alot of rum a cokes, and given my occupation at the time I figured I'd go with the quit caffeine first. I started drinking martinis instead of rum and coke, quit coffee etc. Within 2-3 weeks my ulcers healed. To this day I only drink cola once in awhile, maybe 2 with rum a year. I'm not saying this will work for everyone, but it worked incredibly well for me.
