What's the difference between using a straw and not using one?

I often go to clubs and bars to party with my friends. I noticed that I puke my drink after an hour or two when I use a straw, but when I drink straight from the glass, it manages to stay in. My best friend says that it's because drinking from a straw rushes the alcohol to your head while drinking straight from the glass goes down. I don't really understand what she meant when she said that. Any thoughts?

Yep, I go to them too LoL. Actually, you have quite a story there. My friends also tend to puke more often when they use the straw, maybe the staw makes the alcohal get into your system more than just using a normal glass. I think you're friend is right though I don't have the scientific proof to prove it ^^

My theory would be that since when sucking on a straw your pulling from your lungs. That might cause some of the fumes/vapor/mist or whatever to go down your lungs. That could possibly get you slightly more drunk & cause the problem. Just a theory....
