Serious discussion between myself and some friends occurred roughly between the hours of 7:00pm and 2:00am this past evening on the topic of "ability to withhold non-drug/alcohol-caused vomit from expelling from one's mouth."

I have not vomited since May 19, 2002. I thought that since this was true for me, one could ALWAYS hold back puke. I created this poll to help me understand my situation.

Dude using vomit to fake sickness is essential.

1 in 4 of black men go to jail.

So I won't listen to Mr. T.

i'd like to see verifiable proof of that statistic, Buttons

because i doubt it

03-01-2009, 12:12 AM
I was wrong.

It was 1 in 3.

Take that Mr. T and Real.

oh you meant in the US

you should have said that

regardless, though, why should i believe what some asshole at the guardian says? i thought you were going to drop a university of governmental study on me. i still doubt.

Well doubt all you want, I am the one with evidence here.

Damn it, wheres the net, we got another black person.

I honestly can't remember throwing up without any help from certain controlled substances, I don't get sick often and when I do it's never serious and goes away in about 2 days at the most.

Well, since I'm only 16, and 10 years is 6 - 16 for me, then yeah, I've thrown up many times because as a kid, I had motion sickness and threw up every time my class went on a trip.

At least once every year until third grade..so I'd say maybe 4 times?

Ever since, nope. Not even when I had the stomach virus two Christmases ago.

Haven't thrown up in awhile, but it's not non-existent when I'm sick.

03-01-2009, 12:19 PM
I throw up loads. I've had 60% attendance at school since September. I get sick too much.

03-01-2009, 08:09 PM
I don't throw up. Ever.

03-01-2009, 08:12 PM
i havent thrown up in awhile i usually dont even puke when im sick

03-01-2009, 08:42 PM
I don't puke without "help"
Last year I did get pretty sick tho. Everytime I ate I puked it back up.

03-01-2009, 08:45 PM
who voted that they puke more than ten times a year

03-01-2009, 08:48 PM

Deathwish did. This is a public poll, so by clicking on the numbers you can see who voted for what.

03-01-2009, 08:59 PM
Probably once a year, maybe twice.

have since i was like i was 10

I nearly threw up on saturday (oh yes, another night of drinking alone and drowning sorrows), but I employed some mind techniques (no, seriously) and I was fine.

On a semi-related note, I apparently was texting someone and at some point sent them "TYPE LOUDER I CAN'T READ THAT" followed shortly by "oh wait"

03-02-2009, 09:32 AM
Last time I've thrown up was 4 years back. I've been healthy since then, no major sickness or anything.

03-02-2009, 05:02 PM
I love it when someone throws up and you see the chunks of food spewing out of their mouth.

And you see the food they ate like a few hours ago.

03-03-2009, 07:16 PM
3 / yr

03-03-2009, 07:45 PM
i don't record every time i throw up, so i wouldn't know

03-05-2009, 06:50 AM
I don't think I've thrown up in 8 years. That was the last time I was seriously sick.

The whole point of vomiting is that it's automatic and forced. If you resist and luckily stop it, it will come back later or just make you really sick or even worse, kill you as it's partly digested food with acid.

I have motion sickness, so maybe once a year I'll throw up.
