Alcohol in and by itself cant. However check out some secondary causes of alcohol abuse, IF you are a persistent heavy drinker(binge drinking especially), you are at risk of developing calicifications in your pancreas. This reduces the proper function of your pancreas over time and can produces what are called pseudocysts. This can be the culprit that will cause you to possibly bleed to death because depending on where the pseudocyst is, it can burst your spleen. I say this because it is exactly what happened to me. I was lucky I was sober at the time it burst at 1:30 in the morning

, that way I could feel the emense pain of the rupture and feel the incredible instant nausea and blood vomiting, that I did not aspirate into my lungs.
