Reminds me of the time I went to a Thai restaurant in San Diego... I love spicy food and they asked me how spicy I wanted it and i said "hot". So the waiter tries to talk me into mild and I said, no, hot please. Then he said "how hot do you like Mexican food" and I said "hot" so he said, well, that's like Thai medium. I insisted on hot and he must have gone into the kitchen and told them to really fire it up because that was the hottest food I've ever eaten, including about 40 or visits to Thailand.
Water is no good for spicy food, it just spreads it around. Milk works.
No matter what you do its going to mess up your digestive tract though, just depends on your tolerance. My relatives in Minnesota think ketchup is spicy.
