I used to suffer from sea sickness all the time... However one day when underway - in rough seas standing watch with the others - someone brought in some chocolate..naturally having not had dinner I nibbled at it piece by piece...drinking coffee until the queasiness got the better of me - I couldn't leave station so I barfed into my coffee cup...having done so - of course the riles from fellow shipmates...

The only way to shut them up - I drank the regurgitated remains in my coffee cup after five minutes of listening to the jives....that shut them up (two left station because they couldn't handle it) and from that moment forward - never again got queasy or sick at sea ...sometimes it can be more mental than physical I guess...


Another technique that works is putting a band aide or taping a cottonball right below the ear...it puts pressure on the nerves that are related to balance from the ear and helps some maintain ....
