Alcoholism, if untreated, leads to ulcers and eventually stomach cancer.
Q: Heavy drinking is my pastime. Any advice for a borderline alcoholic?
All heavy drinkers are vitamin-deficient. Moreover, the alcohol you consume usually replaces your meal requirement very poorly.
In fact, most drinkers jokingly brag about being on a liquid diet. Joking aside, drinking prevents the absorption and storage of much-needed vitamins and nutrients.
Alcoholism, if untreated, leads to ulcers and eventually stomach cancer. Undergo counseling to guide you through your personal issues. Chances are, there are deeply rooted psychological problems that must be addressed.
Nevertheless, drinkers in general require vitamin C (1,000 mg); B Complex (100 mg, take twice daily); calcium (500 mg); magnesium (250 mg, take two to three times daily).
It is also important that you do not drink on an empty stomach.
Have a full stomach and when you have the urge to drink, reach for red wine.
