Alcohol And Squirts?

l 100+ pointsm 1+ points - Newb


Dear Poopreport,

Why is crap so watery and fluid-like after a night of drinking? Bud mud or beer shit. Southern Comfort will really twist up your guts -- sometimes I use almost an entire roll of paper. Should I stop drinking or eat more fiber?

-- Insane Wayne

The answer is relatively straightforward: Alcohol is a toxin, and is toxic to the human body in even moderate amounts.

While we may have a few drinks and not feel anything, our body certainly takes notice of the alcohol. Alcohol is toxic to any area of the body that it touches -- from the point where it comes in contact with the oral cavity and is swallowed, down the esophagus, and into the stomach, alcohol is poisonous to cells and tissues of these parts of the digestive system.

The absorption of alcohol begins in the stomach and continues in the small intestine, where the bulk of the alcohol is absorbed. As the intestinal cells absorb the alcohol, the toxicity causes these cells to lose their ability to absorb water, and some cells even die. The cell injury and death leads to an outpouring of fluid from the intestinal lining, which is in turn poorly absorbed.

The end result is large volume secretory diarrhea. The diarrhea usually lasts for several hours until the alcohol is detoxified and removed from the digestive system.

Diarrhea after the consumption of alcohol is not a universal side effect. Many of us who drink do not have episodes of diarrhea afterwards. Why this occurs in some and not others is most likely related to the sensitivity of our individual digestive systems to alcohol, along with the amount of alcohol consumed. Furthermore, other kinds of food and drink can certainly cause and/or worsen diarrhea that was already caused by alcohol.

Does this mean we should never drink alcohol? No. Alcohol has been shown to have many beneficial effects throughout our bodies. However, I want to emphasize that alcohol is toxic -- it kills millions of people in the world every year, and should be consumed in small amounts with responsibility, moderation, and respect. Even by PoopReporters.

Best wishes,

Shitwit, just do what I did. Install a mini bar above the toilet.

Doc I am a 22 year old heavy drinker and I shit dirty green waste into the toilet after long nights of drinking dry bourbon and tequila. I had some really cheap Tequila last night and now I am farting and my ass is leaking. I have been on the toilet for hours. But I think that it might be due to the fifteen dollars worth of Taco Bell I ate after 6 shots of Pepe Lopez. Help me Doc!

Stop drinking? I prefer to stop shitting.

I've been a heavy drinker since i was 16, most of the time cheap malt liquor(about 5pints of 8.5 a day) since i cant hold a job due to my alc intake lol. ive got this for the last 3 years but when i do stop drinking for more then 2-3days it goes back to normal.

i also sometimes get throw up in the same constant squirting, for up to 12hrs at a time sometimes, and it has the same traces of yellow bile my shit does, sometimes my shit goes BLACK to lol, thats never fun to see. no odd smells tho :) , 90% of the time anyways.

Well after a night out and heavy drinking session. ove vodka i always get th e runs but also a foostie smell as well. I also sweat really bad below the waist. Any help? Cheers

I'm only 22 but have always been more a pothead than a boozer, and maybe I should stay that way. We bought a keg of Amber Bock this weekend since the beer stores are closed on Sunday and we didn't want to run out. I only weigh about 100 lbs, and drank quite a few beers, and now I literally can't even stop swearing and whining enough to read on the pot! It's AWFUL! The majority of these posts being from 30+ people makes me wonder if my body is just not designed for alcohol. This happens almost EVERY TIME I get drunk! Tipsy, I'm okay. Drunk, I'm shitting everywhere. I'm also poop shy so I just have to pray my boyfriend is asleep and I can creep downstairs.

Time to go poop again. :( My asshole is on fire.

Max's picture

This secretion thing just happened to me this morning, after a hard night of drinking. I'm a really big guy who is 17 years old and can drink more than anyone I know. I drank something like 1.5 L of different 40% alcohols last night and passed out. I have several questions for you doctor: I have heard of being able to increase one's tolerance through consumption, is this attributed to the killing of bowel cells? If so, could I be able to drink so much because I have a weak/damaged intestine? Am I in danger if this is happening at such a young age? How will I know if my cells have been killed? Will they regenerate over time and if so, how long do I need to go without alcohol?

Max, if your post is true, then you've got bigger problems that your bowel cells sloughing off. Drinking that much at your stated age puts you in a position to have serious alcohol troubles later on in life. Serious. Like alcoholic troubles.

I'd recommend taking a break just to see if you can. I'm 39 and love to drink. Just love it. Put a good bottle of red wine in front of me and it won't last that long. However, it seems that I don't have to worry about things progressing to alcoholism - my drinking has a limit, and over the years, I've realized that it always stops before getting to a point where I honestly worry. Not everyone is that lucky. And many people who start drinking as young as you become hard core drinkers and end up addicted, lifelong alcoholics.

I'm not saying that you're one of them, I'm saying that by drinking this early, you're increasing the odds of becoming a drunk tenfold. By the way, I cannot take pain killers. I am a hard core pain killer addict and have very little control over them. When I broke my foot a few years ago, I could not take pain meds because I would have gotten hooked again. That's my burden. It's something I have to deal with every time I get injured. Honestly dealing with it - my addiction - is important.

Please take care of yourself and give your body a break from the booze. If you find yourself obsessing over it or wanting to drink really bad, talk to someone. If not, then good. Your organs (brain, liver, stomach) have to last you a long, long life hopefully. Take care of them! Big hug.

If a lack of intestinal bateria is what is giving you the runs I offer the following remedy. Next time you overindulge just stop at a hobo incampment on your way home and offer some bum a rim job.

Eat chilies and feel the burn!!

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on!

I've only recently had this problem surface too. I'm 25 and have been drinking anywhere from 1 to 5 drinks a day since I was 21 and only had these sort of intestinal problems arise over the past year.

What if you might be lactose intolerant and/or a heavy drinker, but you can't give up dairy or alcohol. How do you figure out what the problem is?

daphne's picture
PoopReport of the Year AwardSite AdminComment Content ModeratorComment Quality Moderatore 6000+ points

Then you know what the problem is - you don't care enough about your health to stop drinking for a week or two.

Don't think I'm judging you, because I'm not. I am a wino. I love a good buzz and will always have a little wine with dinner, even if I'm 99 and have to sip it through a straw.

What I'm saying is that you have a conscious choice to either chose
1.) your health
2.) your buzz

Make up your mind to get through 2 weeks without each thing, one at a time, and ask people for help - your friends, family. You can substitute soy milk for regular milk during those 2 weeks and at least get your cereal fix on.

Oh, what do you drink that has alcohol? If it's beer, you might not be allergic to alcohol, but beer. Some people can drink wine and liquor, but not beer because of the hops or wheat.

I never had a problem until I STOPPED drinking every night. Before, if I had super duper heavy night drinking, I could just count on a really great shit the next morning and maybe a minimal hangover. Now, I drink like two beers and I'm immediately shitting and continue for the rest of the night and following day. And they're the kind of watery shits that don't give you much warning. Yeah. But I just make sure all of my drinking takes place within a 15 foot radius from a washroom. And no funny business...anymore.

You are right.. I noticed it too. Well, I suppose after a long night of drinking, not eating, and again, only drinking, what could we get out?!

I drank last night and I awoke with a hangover and a serious stomach churning. I came to work and shit all over the toilet and everything and it was muddy. It smelled like a sewer too.

I have been farting and sharting all day and my coworkers are complaining and think something died in the office. What do I do?

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

One time i had the flu, and really didn't eat much of anything for like weeks...becasuse i had the flu...but then i started to get better so my friends thought it would be a good idea to go drinking. I had some LIT's and a salad....OHHH MAN DID I PAY FOR THAT. Literally i thought i was going to shit my pants. Thank GOD we lived only a few mintues away (cause i have this thing where i CANNOT poop in a public restroom). I got home just in time. Swear to God i pooped that entire salad back out.

The alcohol shits are the only thing I look forward to the next day. Between slow and embarrassing recollection of regrettable things I said and did, puking, and trying to get a ride back to my car in that condition, that great big poop always gives me just a little albiet temporary relief.

I can drink Vodka all night and get drunk or drink a 6 pack or more, and I don't have the watery poop effect. It just comes out as usual. I usually eat something while drinking, like carbs (bread pasta) , small portion but enough to soak up the alcohol. Cheers!

It is not the booze but the collateral things associated with boozing too much. You eat things you would not eat sober, you do things with others you would not do sober, you laugh to hard, you cry to much you do whatever with your emotions and there will be hell to pay in the morning.

I have had constant loose bowel movement for the past 14 months, surely it cant be the fact that I enjoy sparkling wine each night after work, about 2 standard drinks a night with a meal. My poop is always bright yellow to light tan in colour and I think I deliver these about 3 to 4 times a day.I am healty in every other part of my body except having this problem. Advice anyone..constructive advice that is ?

daphne's picture
PoopReport of the Year AwardSite AdminComment Content ModeratorComment Quality Moderatore 6000+ points

If the poop color correlates with the sparkly, then what other answer do you have? Lol!

By the way, if you're taking 2 drinks a day, good for you. Your heart says thanks. As to tan poop, I'd take a big stab and say that the bubbles in the drink are oxygenating your doody, thus creating a totally different environment, and thusly, different color.

Don't sweat it. If your poo is coming out OK and you feel well, you're probably OK.

Best wishes, Deb,

Hey Deb - I'm glad I'm not alone. I've been reading though this rather informative post (trying not to cringe at some of the excessive coarse language) and realise that there are a lot of people out there who do drink in moderation and are affected similarly.

I'm 38, healthy, and for the past three years I had 1-2 cocktails about 4-6 days a week. And for the past 19 months I have had mild diarrhoea mornings, not debilitating, but enough to be very annoying, some days worse than others. After abstaining from alcolohol altogether recently for unrelated reasons, I have noticed that bowel movement is beginning to be more normal.

I think alcohol and IBS must be related.

I accidentally drank half a bottle of vodka the other night and it feels like someone has been twisting a knife in my gut for 2 days. This of course has been accompanied by horrific bowl movements the likes of which I have never experienced before.

Logically shouldn't drinking more make the stomach stronger? Like getting a callous, or dish-hands? How nice would it be to have a iron belly.....

If you're losing controls of your bowels, you are most likely attaining a 0.3 BAC.

No, I'm not kidding.

I am an experienced drinker and love to drink. I love good wines and about once or twice a month drink bourbon with my husband. If I drink too fast, it catches up with me, and I hate it now at the ripe old age of 40.

After doing some research, I've found that a 0.3 is not only 3 times over the legal limit, it's also close to comatose. This means that at the time you're shitting yourself, you have the equivalent of 9 to 10 drinks in your system at one time.

At a 0.3 BAC, you can be passed out. Your ability to speak is severely hampered, and you will not be able to stand without help, if you are able to stay awake at all. At a 0.3 BAC you will pee your pants. At this point your central nervous system is so affected that your sphincter muscles will not be able to work at 100% - ie, you can crap your pants.

I love to party as much as the next person (I even have a drinking helmet), so please listen to me when I say that you might want to cut back a bit. You should be drinking slow so your body can adjust to what you're ingesting. You are risking not only hurting yourself, but if you're a female, you can be sexually assaulted while passed out. No matter your sex, you can be mugged, drawn on, or someone can kick your ass. Not only that, but you are putting your friends in the spot where they have to babysit you. That's not too cool to do to your friends. Sooner or later, they'll stop partying with you.

My best, best advice to you if you're going to drink is to drink slowly, and for god's sakes eat something before you go out on your birthday. You'll have so much more fun if you can remember what happened. If you want to get a buzz fast, then have a few quick drinks, but then wait a bit. Have bar snacks, good ones for your stomach like bruschetta or baked potato fries. Chew your food well. Drink water during the evening, too.

Whatever you do, though, if you plan on getting fucked up for your birthday, please promise me that you have friends ready to take care of you. You're going to need it.

Oh, and one more piece of advice. Take a few of those vitamin b drinks with you, Instant Energy. Have a few waiting for the next day when you are ready to wake up. Have Gatorade, Pedialyte, or a decent sports drink waiting along with some Ramen Noodles in your kitchen.

Ah, to be young again.

Try adding White Castles or Krystals to any drinking binge and you will never forget the smell, the texture or the volume of poop.

In past 2 years I have become heavy drinker and I almost drunk daily. I am bodybuilder and very cautious about the health but tensions in relationship with my girl friend led me to drinking habit and now I have realized I am become alcoholic.

I noticed when I drink, I eat allot, I eat like hell. I am a bodybuilder and always counting on calories while eating. While usually I do not eat meal which is greater then 800 calories, after drinking I eat 2000+ calories and last Monday I eat 4800 calories which caused me diarrhea and my stomach was upset for about a week. On Monday, I eat dominos pizza 1800 calories, chicken breast roasted 600 calories and few potato chips 1200 calories, along with 6-7 shots of 60ml whiskey (I don't remember how much) 400 calories(48% volume) and some other food 800 calories.

I got diarrhea next day and it continued for next 6 days, I never had this problem. Do you see what is the cause of problem here?

Alcohol makes me hungry and I keep eating , eating, eating. My body do not need that much food but again alcohol is an ACID hence I must eat something with it or it will directly hit my kidneys.

Alcohol makes you eat so much, you end up upsetting your stomach and you get diarrhea in the morning.

Seriously, I love drinking and getting high and I feel out of this world after drinking but I have now realized -

1) Alcohol should not be consumed daily
2) Alcohol make us loose control of our self
3) Alcohol makes us eat which makes us FAT, over weight
4) Alcohol makes us angry
5) Alcohol takes over emotions out and we talk garbage which we never talk if we are not drunk
6) Alcohol makes us aggressive (that's why they say do not drink and drive)
7) Alcohol if consumed in large quantity can cause diarrhea and will damage kidneys in the long run (if consumed daily)
8) Alcohol makes girls out of control and most of the time they do not even remember what they did while under influence of alcohol. My Girl friend do not remember anything after drinking alcohol. Alcohol makes girls 100% vulnerable for sexual abuse and rape.
9) Alcohol makes us sleep, do not drink if you intend to work or drive.
10) Alcohol severally effects our decision making abilities, even after 12 hours in case of over drinking.
11) Alcohol is severally effecting my body building goals and I am not able to archive my goals due to consumption of alcohol.

I love drinking alcohol but all these problems are too much for my goals. I have realized under influence of alcohol, I was not able to decide on many things in my life and my decision making abilities have severally effected. I will now become very sober with alcohol and will drink very casually.

I read some where, for people who want to leave alcohol "not drinking first drink is a problem, drinks following first drink are not a problem". Hence, If I don't intend to drink, I will not touch alcohol at all.

First, let me say that your post is extremely honest. Because of that, you may not be on your way to alcoholism. Alcoholism is a progressive disease, one of its main components is that it takes years to reach full tilt. It can take years to become a true, true alcoholic.

Being a true wino, I always find myself drawn towards these posts. It's not out of denial, it's out of genuine concern. I will be a wino until I'm dead and gone. I love good wine, and it will be a sad day that I can't enjoy a decent red with some beans, olive oil, and some friends.

This being said, I wanted to respond to you.

First off, alcohol does not make you hungry. It makes you thirsty. Do some research on the mixed messages that your brain will receive via hunger/thirst. These studies are very interesting. From what I've seen, this is one of the reasons that people who drink 8 8 ounce glasses of water a day loose weight. It's been recently debated that we don't "need" all that water. What hasn't been debated is that when our bodies send us hunger pangs, they often aren't water/food specific. You may be receiving true water/electrolyte pangs and thinking this is hunger.

Second - alcohol can be consumed daily. My mother is 63. She can do that one yoga stance where she balances her entire body on her elbows. Dude, I'm not kidding. She's amazing. She drinks 3 glasses of 4 ounces of wine per day. Every day.

I visited my mother in November, and I watched her pour her wine into a measuring cup every night. 4 ounces a time. Some nights she had GASP 4 cups of wine. But, every day, she had wine. And every day she drinks tons of water, and she did handstands in her living room.

You can drink every day.

Third - alcohol does not make everyone loose control. You must believe me. I'm the Poopreport resident wino. I love expensive wine. Does it make me lose control? Not necessarily. I drink too much and get funky.

If you choose to blame the alcohol, you have shown one of the steps towards admitting you're an alcoholic. It is an alcoholic who blames the booze and not his/her self.

Fourth - alcohol doesn't makes all of us fat or angry. In fact, when I drink, I'm the happiest bastard on the site. I'm truly happy. I love it and don't make excuses. As to it making me fat? No. What makes me fat is that I may drink a bottle, and then I decide that I need to eat 2 tacos before I go to bed because my body says "dude, ingest some carbs, or you'll puke." (which is all my fault)

My fault, not the booze.

Fifth (god, don't I love the fifth) - of course booze loosens our tongues. Get over it. If you're that worried, don't drunken dial or drunken email. Who's in charge here?

Sixth - alcohol might make YOU aggressive, but not me. Don't assume the rest of the drinking nation reacts this way.

Seventh - YES. booze can ruin your kidneys, liver, heart, and stomach.

But guess what else? So can smoking, smoked meats, too many soft drinks, anabolic steroids, sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, and a diet devoid of fiber.

I'm not going to candy-coat this for you. I have been a drinker all my life and will drink when I'm that little old lady in the wheelchair on the steps of the retirement home. I have no problem with that because I have no denial about what I do. I love wine. I love olives. I love Mediterranean cooking. To me, wine is life.

I get the idea that to you booze is a demon. However, many of us enjoy liquor as a part of a healthy, non guilt-related lifestyle. We embrace that bottle of wine. To us, it represents familial bonding and friendship. To you, a serious bodybuilder, it may represent a serious temptation.

I would suggest if you're concerned to find a nearby alcohol-related testing facility. There's a SASE test you can have administered to you to determine whether or not you have a drinking problem.

Listen, your body is your temple. Build those muscles. Flex. Be beautiful. But consider this - if you get to the point where you binge because you're tired of such a strict lifestyle that you can't deal, then maybe it's time to realize that life would be easier and more enjoyable if you cheated once a week. Eat a sunday. Have some french fries. Do some shots.

Don't binge.

If alcohol is a trouble for you, I get it. But, for many of us, alcohol is just fine.

I wish you serious muscles and a great life. But, please bodybuilder Mike, please make sure to enjoy life. Don't live life constantly denying yourself. Best wishes.

P.S. Here's a great link for you -
genuine fat free, calorie free, high fiber food

I've always been impressed with bodybuilders because of the amount of mental strength needed to eat the right things and to avoid the good stuff. But, at this point, I think, with the great fruits and vegetables handy at today's produce markets, and now these crazy noodles, there should be a marked increase in the concept of enjoyment of life. To be a bodybuilder today doesn't mean total denial, nor does it have to.

Bombay Mike, I want you to find a great middle of the road. Great body, great love, great food, and great fun.

Email me someday and let me know how you are. You big lug.

Hello daphne,

Your reply is very informative. I don't know why, whenever I drink strong beer or whiskey, I feel hunger and I am not able to control my eating. This also make me very angry. Also, its because of my relationship problem I am not able to think rationally.

btw, I am not wine drinker (I don't know anything about wines), maybe whiskey and beer are different from wine drinking?

but its true, while I am drunk I become very aggressive and I have noticed similar symptance in other people as well.

what do you think. once again thanks for your informative post, i will read it again.

Mike, after doing a little more reading, I owe you an apology. It does appear that while alcohol makes you thirsty, it can make you hungry if you drink on an empty stomach. I guess this is why people have had pre-dinner cocktails throughout history.

I also have to ask - what is your heritage? I don't mean to pry, but people with Irish/Welsh descent actually have a higher prevalence to possess what's called a 'mean gene' in their genetic code than other heritages do. My grandpa was welsh, and boy was he a bad drunk. It was about ten years ago that my mother found a great article about booze and certain nationalities that went beyond addiction possibilities into behavioral characteristics. I should ask her if she remembers where she found it. Sometimes, she would send me New York Times articles. Maybe that's where she read it.

Just curious.

Oh, and I forgot to tell you. When I drink vodka (grain vodka, not potato vodka), I get crazy. In fact, most clear liquors make me wacko, and I avoid them at all costs. It occurred to me some years ago that maybe my body chemistry doesn't mesh with clear, grain-based alcohols. Could it be possible that your body chemistry doesn't like certain alcohols? Maybe you should try some wine or something new.

Hey Daphne, I'm just curious - are you mixed with Mediterranean? I'm Sicilian and Jewish so I always like to bond with fellow countrymen and women. :)

Cakey's picture

Oddly enough, the only times Alcohol has ever given me the runs is when I've only ingested a little of it. I don't know, though, the last time I had problems, I was throwing up, too, so it may not have been the alcohol because I ended up actually getting sick. But yeah it's weird two times in a row I've gotten diarrhea by just taking one small shot of vodka/whiskey to help me calm down right before bed. Should I not consume liquor if I don't intend to be active for a while longer?

Derek's picture

If I might interject on the discussion, Daphne and Mike, I've always believed that intoxication is a unique experience for every individual. You see, alcohol lowers your inhibitions. If you have a "shell" that you never come out of, it could smash it like a hammer. I wouldn't say that alcohol shows us who we really are, since a person's inhibitions are an important part of their personality, but I would say that we all have different latent emotions that alcohol brings out, whether they are aggression, sociability, sadness, anger, hunger, depravity, contentment, or sexuality. I, myself, am a very relaxed drunk. I get this illusion that I'm a really suave guy it gives me a boost of confidence. I know some people who get loud, some who get quiet, some who get angery, and some who want to fight for very poor reasons. It's all dependent on what you're going through and who you are.

Oh... wait.

And I poop, poop poop poop pooop. This is a post about poop. Blah

Excellent point, Derek. I do, though, think that there are alcohols that don't mix with someone's personal chemistry. For me, it's wine that does the happy trick, but clear booze makes me psycho. The last time I drank clear grain vodka, I woke up the next day at 5 PM with a few bruises and half of my hair. Apparently, I'd agreed to a haircut while bombed and then attacked the girl who cut it for me. Never,never again. Novodkafordaphne.

Pass those grapes.

daphne, I am hindu, mike is just my screen name. well, i kind of took your advice and have now moved to premium whiskey (more expensive) (wine is not my thing! sorry!) and i am feeling much better... its kind of very light and i am not getting any hangovers even after 250ml driking.

btw, I tested jony walkers red label and it was amazing, damn it costs $70 / bottel here which is kind of expensive for me. I go for more of a like $20 / bottle wiskey.

Derek, I fully agree with you. alcohol does bring out emotions. Another thing I noticed is I have this bad habit of working and chewing food in nights, alcohol just enhance this. Tomorrow onwards, i will decide what i have to eat in advance and then will eat very less.

Lets c.........

btw, My dierrah problem is totally gone and I am feeling very normal. I think this happened when i stopped dirking for 2-3 days, anyway, it was long since I haven't drunk may be that was causing problems or it was whiskey which is hot and weather here is also hot.
