Why can't i drink whiskey?!

Question: Why can't i drink whiskey!?
I use to be able to drink whiskey however after drinking some i was sick for like 3 days non stop (un-related flu thing)!. I can't even smell whiskey without feeling sick, is there a way to fix this!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

I am going to agree with what the first two responses!. Your body's defense system created an association between the whiskey and the illness!. This was a functional thing so that when we try unknown foods, getting sick and not wanting to eat the food again makes you avoid repeatedly foods that are potentially poisonous!. Learning fast is a survival skill!.

You can retrain yourself to enjoy whiskey again!. I would agree that you may need to reintroduce whiskey slowly, in weak quantities to start with!. I would suggest going with the best quality that you can, and to start with very, very weak drinks, mixing it with stronger flavors (like coke) so that that is the dominant flavor!.

You may also just have to wait awhile!. I used to have a similar response to fake coconut flavor, and it took me awhile to get over it!. I actually didn't realize that I could have it again, until I unknowingly took a bite of something that had coconut and I didn't react poorly!. This unawarness likely helped, becuase if you know it is whiskey, your body is going to perpare to protect you by feeling sick!. If you don't give it the chance to react that way, you may beable to create new associations!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I am a psychologist!. I also have personal expereince!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Whiskey can be rough!. I used to be able to drink it by the bottle but now I can't!. Whiskey can cause ulcers and other damage to your stomach lining!. I reccommend trying a scotch whiskey!. It's not as hard on your digestive system and tastes ever better!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

thats not good whiskey is good, was it bad, no it couldn't have been i have old whiskey i had some i didnt get sick!. try not to smell it!. but i wouldn't drink it any more if it gets me sick 4 3 days!. maybe one day it will smell good to u againWww@FoodAQ@Com

probably not!.!. your body thinks that the whiskey made you sick (even though it was the flu) so your body will not accept it!.!.!.!. you might be able to re-accquire the taste by LIGHTLY spiking your drinks!.!.!.!. and getting stronger as your body gets used to it!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes!. Drink as much as you can before throwing up and then when you feel like your going to throw up, go to a fancy restaurant and barf all over the waiter!. Really, it works!Www@FoodAQ@Com

tazzroxx is right!. Psychologists have shown that if you vomit after eating or drinking something, your body associates the two even if your vomiting was unrelated to the food or drink!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well, find another drink you like!. After some time you may get over the whiskey intolerance!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

accept the fact that you can't drink whisk(e)y !.!. alcohol isn't for everyone you know!?Www@FoodAQ@Com
