  • This post will seem weird but I wanted to leave it as it was being discovered as my husband a recovering alcholic peered over my should and enlightened me, (O: so here it goes. I hate it when he is right. (my info) Gallstones are not caused by drug and alcohol abuse but after researching this question Acute pancreatitis is mainly caused by alcohol abuse, Gall stones are caused by many thing cholesterol, pancreatitis., okay wait, I will leave my answer and add this which I have just been given from one of my husbands AA sites it reads as follows (his Info) Over time, drinking too much alcohol can cause or make worse health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, liver disease, gallstones, pancreatitis, and cancer. It can also cause problems at school or work and with relationships. If you have trouble with alcohol, cutting back or quitting can help you live a happier, healthier life.

Nowhere do they state that alcohol causes gall stones. This is very misleading.
