Hello,
Women are more affected by alcohol and can become sick after 2-3 drinks.This is because women break down alcohol more slowly than men because there is a smaller amount of alcohol metabolizing enzyme (alcohol dehydrogenase) in the stomach of women.

Also by regular drinking,your liver is affected.It becomes less efficient at breaking down alcohol.Alcohol intake also causes stomach,heart,liver and kidney diseases.So pls abstain from it.If it seems impossible for abstainance,then drink moderately on a full stomach, and avoid becoming dehydrated. Food slows transport of the alcohol into the duodenum. The longer alcohol stays in the stomach, the less it can affect you during a party or the next day.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
