Is making yourself throw up when intoxicated a bad idea?

Answer: YES

The idea of throwing up to “get rid of the drunk” is often idolized with encouraging phrases:
puke and rally, the tactical chunder, vomit and rock it, chuck and run.

I could go into a lot of biochemistry here, but I will spare you. The bottom line is that the only
way to metabolize alcohol is with time. So, if you find yourself a bit too drunk, hang in there,
stay hydrated, and make sure you have someone to check in on you. Also, feel free to refer to my
previous post “how do you know your limits?” to avoid this problem all together.
