The most common causes for pancreatitis are drinking and gallstones. I would strongly recommend that you abstain from drinking so as not to develop another episode of acute pancreatitis again in the future.

Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
