now i have this problem evry time i go flying. i love to fly. its the greatest felling being thousands of feet in the air. the one thing i cant tolerate is the takeoff. i get sick every time we take off and every time we land the plane. anyone know how i can avoid the embarassment of throwing up each flight?

I have the same problem I hate take off and landing. What I do is get my seat belt on real tight on my hips and then right before the plane takes off I tighted up my stomache muscules and hunch over a bit and hold my breath. you can try it wile sitting at the computer and its like doing a crunch so I get a workout too.

Have you tried taking a motion sickness medication? They sell these over the counter for pretty cheap. I hate flying and get sick the whole time. I find the medication really helps. I also try to distract myself during take off and touch down. I plug in my iPod and flip open a magazine so that I'm not focusing on it.
