It really is though, I am anorexic, I have been dealing with it now for 2 years and have tried multiple times to purge, never happens. Some people just aren't built for it, I guess. Although I will continue to try. Why are you wanting to anyways, weight issues? Or feeling sick?

Firstly, making yourself throw up is a terrible thing to do. Just to let you know, making yourself throw up screws up your esophagus really bad and can lead to long term medical problems that can be very serious. (Such as losing your teeth because of the acid in your stomach coming against them so frequently.)

Now, to answer your question, it isn't hard if you know how to do it right. I heard a story of someone who used their toothbrush to make themselves throw up, but never use a toothbrush to provoke vomiting, because just as easily as it causes a gagging reflex, it can cause a swallowing reflex, and can cause you to swallow the toothbrush whole.

Warm salt water or ipecac can both make you throw up. Salt water can cause the runs if it eventually gets to the intestines, but if you throw up, the salt water will be evacuated.

So, as stated above, it isn't hard if you know the right techniques, but overall, I wouldn't make yourself throw up in the first place. If you are having stomach problems, or feel sick, please, take a trip to the doctor, or get some mental help if you are throwing up to lose weight.

Well the finger thing does not work for a lot of people! I'm one of those people that just can't throw up with any technique, but I found one thing that does work for me. Most people may think its stupid or just really don't feel like doing it but whatever it works. Just drink pop or anything bubbly then go on a swing and twist it around let it unwind while your on it and keep doing it over and over. You throw up a lot. You get dizy but it last only for a little bit so try it if you want..
