Today, I traveled by plane for the first time. Once in the air, I was absolutely terrorized by the whole experience. Luckily, they had free booze on board, so I necked some to steady my nerves. Unfortunately, the vodka mixed with air turbulence made me spurt some vomit into my lap. FML

And now you get the inevitable downpour of red thumbs, which will then cause you to spiral out of control into depression. After hours of drowning your sorrows in alcohol, you will die from alcohol poisoning. Hope replying first was worth it...


22- That's all fair and well, but travelling to the other side of the world is a pretty hefty boat ride. I'm terrified of planes as well, but I'm not going to allow that fear to conquer me; I'll still travel by air. I just can't place my fear upon others since it was my own choice to be on the plane in the first place. I just remain wide-eyed, quiet and strapped to the seat throughout the entire journey.

Me too. Being afraid of planes is not the end of the world though. Unless you are going to the other side of the world there are other ways of getting there.

Don't give up on flying yet. See if you can get some Valliun or something for your next flight. Headphones help too once you're allowed to use them. Scary as they may be, they're still safer than driving.

IntI agree. My father takes something to calm him down while flying. And he flies weekly, has been for years.

Also, it seems weird to me that the OP is just now flying for the first time (during adulthood). Traveling has been a big part of my upbringing. Is this common for people not to fly until later in their life?

It depends where you live and other methods of getting to foreign countries, I traveled a lot as a kid with out flying we went to italy, spain, switzerland, belgium, and holland (not in the same trip) by going through the euro tunnel then driving and stopping lots of nice places on the way, the trip was part of the holiday not just the way of getting there. My dad did not fly til he was 55, never needed to...

As a lightweight, it's not just that. Alcohol has up to three times the impact on your system at cruising altitude. As an example: two shots of rum on the ground only makes me frustratingly sleepy, but two shots of rum in the air and I'm out like a light.
