Work hard, party harder
Lean how to vomit in the ocean.
Find somewhere to vomit: If you’re at home, toilets, sinks and buckets will be your best bet. Sinks aren’t really great because if your vomit comes out chunky, you’ll probably have to fish your own vomit out of the drain.
- If you’re outside, try to get away from people and their belongings. Nothing makes you more ticked off when some random drunk comes and spews all over your car. Try to find a forest or an empty lot. You can throw up on the open ground in one of those areas.
Make sure you need to vomit: Some people are assaulted with waves of nausea, and aren’t really sure that they need to throw up. In this case, vomiting might not be all that comfortable because it’s unnecessary. Other people know that they’re going to vomit — perhaps they’ve had too much to drink — and purging is an inevitability. Look for these telltale signs that you or someone else is going to vomit:
- Lips turn pale, lose all color
- Start sweating, feeling excessively hot
- Start salivating a saltier-than-usual spit
- Extreme discomfort in the stomach
- Dizziness, an aversion to movement
Try to prevent nausea and vomiting before it’s too late: There are a few things that you can try to do to prevent your body’s vomiting response. Try these before you force yourself to vomit:
- Drink small amounts of clear, sweetened liquids such as soda or fruit juices (orange and grapefruit juices are not advised because these are too acidic).
- Rest either in a sitting position or in a propped lying position. Activity may make feelings of nausea even worse, leading to vomiting.
Let your body vomit or induce vomiting yourself: Your body will do the trick itself if you give it enough time, or if you just want to get it all over with as soon as possible, use the following emetics:
- Medications, such as syrup of ipecac, or salt- or mustard-water, can be taken orally to induce vomiting.
- Use your fingers to stimulate the uvula. Take one or two fingers, place them in back of your mouth, and try to touch the uvula, which is the little dangling flap of skin at the back of the throat.
- Watch another person vomit. Seeing another person throw up can increase your likelihood to vomit. While it’s difficult to spontaneously will nausea on someone else just to induce vomiting, it is possible to watch videos online.
Try to hit where you’re aiming: Now that you’re sure you need to vomit, accuracy will be the next objective. When the vomiting feeling comes over you, get your mouth close to the toilet bowl or container, preventing spray or spillage. If you’re outside, the closer you are to the ground the less splatter you’ll produce.
Drink something: When you’re done, drink some water. It will wash away the acidic taste. Also, if you have to vomit again, your stomach isn’t empty; vomiting with an empty stomach can be very painful.
