Whether or not drinking is causing a person's ulcer, science has concluded that drinking doesn't help an ulcer heal. science, when one has an ulcer, can make the condition worse. When you take alcohol, ulcers do not heal as quickly or as well as if you avoid alcohol. Your ulcer may even get worse or more painful any time you drink excessively.

Tobacco And Cigarettes Smoking

The increased secretion of stomach acid and/or a reduction in sodium bicarbonate production in the pancreas can interfere with the protective mechanisms of the gastric mucosa and the inner layer of the duodenum, where ulcers are normally formed. The chemicals present in tobacco and cigarette are very bad for anyone suffering from an ulcer.

On the other hand, smoking contributes to many common disorders of the digestive system, such as heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcers, and some liver diseases. Smoking increases the risk of Crohn's disease, colon polyps, and pancreatitis, and it may increase the risk of gallstones.
