One large bottle of barefoot Merlot, three bass ales, three shots of Jameson, one shot of Jagermeister, one shot of goldschlager, put me in the ER for gastritis. I was unconscious and vomiting for about 16 hours. When I woke, I just could not stop vomiting and hiccuping. I went to the ER eventually. The doc told me I'd burned away the inner layer of my stomach. I couldn't eat solid food for a week. The hiccups left a sharp pain in my solar plexus every time I swallowed.

After this experience my sleeping schedule reversed so that I was up all night and asleep during the day. I ended up on Zoloft and mood stabilizers after this experience. I took them for about a year while abstaining from alcohol. They worked.
I just got off the Zoloft recently and had my first drink in about a year. I never drink more than one drink in one day now. That is my new rule. If I break it, I'm done. I never want to go through that experience again. I nearly died from that experience.
