For some reason now, and this has been for awhile, after I eat, and then smoke a cigarette, I vomit, its not always, but its often enough, the only time I don't is if I fight the gag reflex. More strange, is that the gag reflex is there for up to a couple of hours after eating. Its often enough, that its concerning. I've also started vomiting in the morning after having my first cigarette.<P>
I'm 6 feet (male), 30 years old, and 170 pounds, and not looking to lose any weight, I can't understand whre this gag reaction came from. I don't always vomit when I smoke, its only after I eat and then smoke does the gag kick in. The only surgury I had was last year and that was for a hernia, but I doubt that is related to this.

Perhaps your body is trying to tell you something. Of course you can't quit eating but if you quit smoking you can have some life-long benefits. Seems like it would be worth it.
Aside from this obvious solution, you may want to see an ear/nose/throat doctor to see if there is some kind of obstruction.
