TW: alcohol Okay so I’m a super light weight, who rarely ever drinks. And taking shots makes me want to puke lol like I can’t just fully take a shot. I’m the person to take a sip and gag. Any tips?

SAME. I can’t take a shot without having my gag reflexes killing me😭

Maybe try drinking something like club soda before and/or after taking your shot so that you won’t really have the taste of alcohol after you take it

It’s also easier taking shots when the alcohol is cold

I don’t have this problem, but honestly just drink like some fireball and Dr Pepper together then start taking your shot or the best way just chug some fireball then you’ll be numb from it and you can keep on drinking 😂🤗

Drink something you like. There’s no reason as to why you should try and force yourself into drinking something your body obviously doesn’t seem ok with xx

Try different alcohol! I found that i can only do shots of tequila. I like vodka and rum mixed in drinks but i can’t take a shot of it, or any other alcohol besides tequila, for that matter.

When I take shots I usually tap my nose. But you really shouldn’t force yourself to drink if you can’t/don’t want to! It’s not worth it.

Mixing shots has helped me. Like half alcohol half pop or juice in the shot glass! But yeah I'd say just stop forcing it because that's no fun

If you don’t enjoy taking shots and often feel nausea, don’t take them!

I used to be like that and now I can and actually enjoy taking them, but honestly if it’s really not your thing then don’t feel pressured to do them! Or if you want to but you struggle then maybe fill the shot glass half full or something so there’s not as much!

Don’t take shots! If it’s making you nauseas, don’t feel compelled to do it. It’s your body telling you it’s not a good idea so listen to it

It’s not worth taking shots if they make you feel that bad.

Honestly just don’t do shots if you don’t like them and they make you unwell. And sipping on a drink you actually like is a lot more enjoyable and less likely to make you sick so just spend your money on those

Make yourself a mixed drink instead

Try different drinks, and when you’re gonna take a shot, ask for the drink you like. You could always try to do salt and lime. Or have a chaser.

I can’t do straight shots of stuff either. I used to try to force myself because I thought everyone would judge me and I’d force myself and throw up more or only be able to drink half it and just gag. I didn’t want to feel like I was being difficult then realized how silly that was and they all want me to drink stuff i like and don’t care if it’s different. Dont drink anything that makes you feel sick or you don’t want to do. Listen to your body. I’ve learned I can do shots now but only mixed shots like Washington apples, kamikaze, green tea, Scooby snacks, bombs, pineapple upside down, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, pancake with OJ chaser. They’re not as strong and don’t have the aggressive taste of straight alcohol. But be careful because it can be more dangerous doing more because they sneak up on you since they taste good. If you dont have anyone to make them for you at home/get together if you’re not great mixing yourself just try making your own simple mix. Add alittle mixer (cranberry, club soda, oj, etc) in and you’d be surprised how much a difference it can make.

Yeah I don’t do shots at all, I’d rather just buy a drink. I got old and now can’t handle crazy shots😅 could try just having red sourz, shots of baileys or jäger bombs instead x

Drink something you enjoy, having it be ice cold is way better and goes down smoother. Don’t smell it before you do it, and chase with something after. Some people just aren’t shots people, myself included depending on the alcohol. And I always just say “I can’t do shots” because I know how they make me feel or how certain alcohol affects me and people can call me out or say I’m a baby for not doing a shot but I’d rather they say that than be throwing up later haha

I’m the same way with certain liquors. Maybe you need to find one that you enjoy? But if you feel this way with all alcohol then you don’t need to force yourself! Sometimes sipping on a chaser drink before you take the shot can help! But like others have said, you’d rather drink something you like than force yourself to take a shot, gag, get nauseous, then throw up later.
