I don't know if I have a weird stomach, but it seems that every time I drink any form of alcohol, whether it is hard liquor, wine, or beer, it is horrible. Before I was diagnosed every time I drank it caused bleeding in my stool, needless to say, I stopped that real fast. Now I get horrible cramping and gas and then it causes constipation for two days. I don't understand it. Is there something in the alcohol, or am I just a weird case. Would beano or gasx help with this problem or is that a bad idea? Im not an alcoholic but an occasional drink with my friends would be nice.

used too drink lots pre-crohn's(averaging 30-40 beers weekly). now the boozes is off limits and lost the taste of it.had a bit of beer this past summer after 3 years and don't like it or miss it.
in a sense this disease probably saved me from becoming an alcholic.
Hmmm.....this thread is really interesting.....
If I am not in remission (or really close) I don't even feel like drinking, so I don't know if I can tolerate or not. HOWEVER, if I'm feeling good, then I drink whenever I feel like it. At most it is one drink per day or three on a Friday or Saturday. But it doesn't bother me at all. I do need to mention I can't drink like I used to, but I'm quite out of practice from my college days :)
