Hey Kavi_17

Merry Christmas to you.

I'm sorry to feel about your problem. I now sometimes life is easier to just drink alcohol. But you do know that it's not the proper way of dealing with life. People use drinking as coping mechanism because alcohol can numb and make you feel okay. That's why you feel heavy on the chest when you haven't drank. If you really want help then don't resort to alcohol. I encourage you to go and see a counselor. Smile

Enjoy the holidays.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Alcohol on its own lead to anorexia and GI ulcerations and dyspepsia and many other metabolic disturbances . The way you are drinking needs help and signup to FDA approved AA programs. Seek help please.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
