I have extremely bad constipation. In order for me to go to the bathroom, I often need an enema or a strong laxative, and still end up sitting on the toilet for hours. I usually don't go for 4 or 5 days at a time. However, one thing that often helps is alcohol. If I go out at night and drink a lot (6-8 drinks), I usually will end up going to the bathroom a lot the next day without much trouble. Does anyone else expreience this?

Alcohol can cause diarrhea in some people, so it isn't suprising it can loosen someone who is clogged up.Unfortunately it isn't a good long term solution as the bad health effects accumulate over time.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html
