???: Why do you want to vomit? If youre swallowing things you shouldn't - solvents or other poisonous stuff - break the habit. If you did, this answer won't come in time. If there's a need to vomit most of the time our body just does that. Can you make yourself vomit that way, probably. But if it's a frequent choice are you bulemic? If so, psychotherapy is really important.
