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?

IF you get sick at the clubs it is because you are drinking to much. Slow down and don't drink more than 1 drink every 2 hours and you won't get sick. Straw or no straw.

Nah, I think that's not it. I rarely go to clubs and parties.

There are different ways to touch your ear! Same is the case with using a straw and not using one! The point is this you got to get it inside your mouth, into your greedy stomach!

Are you just responding to my post for the sake of responding? Because if that's your cause, please refrain from doing so because I really want to know the answer to this.

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 ^^

Yeah, I thought she was right too. She has more drinking experience. Lol

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....
