I don't get what you're trying to say.
Heroin is illegal and incredibly harmful and addictive, even in small amounts.
Alcohol can be used responsibly and be very positive for the person.
I agree that he should stop drinking alcohol, at least for now, but maybe an investigation into why this is happening would be a good idea.
Alcohol is harmful and addictive, you can see that everywhere. When you start hearing people ask "but how do you have fun?" when you inform them you're not drinking, things are worrying. Things are fine in moderation but, just as how there's no benefit in heroin in 'moderation', there's none in alcohol.

Just look at the replies in this thread. They don't sound like addict talk?

It does seem that far too many people have problems with alcohol, but simply telling people not to drink won't solve that. Personally, I drink less than 15 units a week and it helps me to unwind after a really stressful day at work, and I also get a sense of satisfaction when I mix the perfect cocktail. I use alcohol in moderation and manage to get two noticeable effects from it, as well as the ones that won't be noticeable (mentioned in that article).

I used to drink a lot on a regular basis..and because of that would often be sick, but now the taste and drinking any amount makes me feel sick, it could be a mental thing e.g through association

I am more than use to alcohol drink it everyday (no not like a bottle of spirits a day) just on weekends but on weekdays in general it's beers (5-6 a day) or maybe some cider on the odd days in the mid week. I have Anxiety it isn't to get drunk so much because normally i'm by far function it is just to take the edge off because i'm sick of feeling anxious and taking medication that makes me feel worst than the booze lol.
I get full blown withdrawals when I even go the next day without a drink (or 3 just to subside them) I'm quite a nasty sober person not going to lie, even before I started drinking I was always quite a nasty sober person altogether. I do not take anything illegal whatsoever just self medicating alcohol use and tobacco but my diets exceptionally healthy with cooked meals daily. I get this sickly feeling however (for me it's probably stage one withdrawals) but it's worst than a normal hangover. I'll go hair of the dog like a beer the next morning and just sipping it I know I get terrible gag reflex and normally it ends in vomiting. The pus side is once I finally do vomit (which sometimes I simply go finally) about time. Its a reset mechanism for me and I am back to easily downing a bee pretty much right after the last heave. So yes sometimes I drink my first beer asap to make myself vomit on purpose I have no idea why it works for me when most would still feel crap after it just does. I am really quite able to drink pubs out of business though these days I don't do that anymore I drink at home. I slowed my drinking down when I had withdrawals on waking up last summer- they were not bad they wee absolutely petrifying in fact they were so bad it took the entire day of drinking to get rid of the, I even downed a bottle of Gin in desperation- I at this point I ad really odd symptoms like feinting feeling, body jolts, couldn't taste the Gin whatsoever and Gins powerful stuff, couldn't swallow, I believe that was my first very dangerous close call with what only appeared to me as the beginning stages of DT's so I wasn't risking that.

My wife is like this - it seems she has an intolerance to alcohol. Even small amounts, no where near enough to get you even the slightest bit tipsy make her feel sick.

shes found a great solution though - she doesn't drink. No drinking, no feeling sick.

I don't know why it happens but I'm the same! Can't have a drop of the stuff! Literally, I was given a mince pie over Christmas and the raisins in it had been soaked in brandy and I took one bite and couldn't stomach it. On the bright side we're not going to be destroying our livers, brain cells and dignities any time soon

Why bother, I haven’t had an alcoholic drink for30 years and not missed it! The reason you vomit with a hangover is because alcohol is because the alcohol has poisoned your body!

I don’t drink at all.

I though it would be really hard to give up and... it just wasn’t. Plus, I never have hangovers. There are some pretty good alcohol free beers and wines around too.

My point is, maybe just stop for a while. Not drinking doesn’t have to mean being straight edge or sober, it can just be. You can still go out (if I go out with people I don’t feel like talking to about not drinking i just drink tonic and lime or soda and lime and people assume I’m drinking gin or vodka and I don’t correct them). You can still have fun.

It may be that you’re allergic to sulphites, in which case try drinking clear spirits and see if that helps?

This same problem is happening to me. Used to be able to drink a fair bit, and suddenly this summer I was feeling sick after 2 drinks. Oddly enough it’s always after I’ve gone to bed, then I wake up shivering (despite not being cold) and feeling sick. I’ve tried a bunch of different stuff and nothings worked, so I’m just going to have to stop drinking Asked my GP about it and they rather dismissively said ‘everyone process alcohol differently’...

There may be a variety of reasons.

It might simply be that you are a bit 'run down'. I have had this happen a few times when I am not feeling well in general, that even a sip of alcohol makes me want to throw up!

It could also be a genetic thing as others have said. Your body may just not handle alcohol as well as others.

Other thing, maybe change what you are drinking and see if that makes a difference.

It doesn't sound like an allergy to alcohol, as an allergy would more likely cause a stronger reaction than just feeling sick.

It will pass I am sure!

The last 2 times I've had alcohol I've felt like I was close to physically being sick. However what made it really weird was that I knew I was 100% sober. Not even the tiniest bit tipsy. It's annoying because I wanted to drink more but my body wasn't letting me. Any idea what this is? It's felt like this with different types of drinks
If you're feeling sick when you have alcohol, then that's probably your body trying to tell you something and you shouldn't keep trying to force it. Perhaps see your GP, some people can have an allergic reaction to alcohol. Alternatively, try some different alcohol. I've found that vodka makes me very nauseous and gives a horrible hangover, so I have amaretto instead now, which is far tastier and I don't feel ill with it.

Sounds like alcohol isn't the drug for you, other drugs are available.

Probably good idea to stop drinking then

If you got drunk in the past recently and was really wasted (voming everywhere) then it’s probs just your body saying “DO NOT PUT THAT SH’T INSIDE ME AGAIN”
