My guess, nothing could work as good as a big fat blunt!

Never had seasickness though. But if I do, that will be my treatment. :wink:

I am at work and can't get ahold of what the best sea sickness pills are. My parents have been on many cruises and my mother gets really bad motion sickness. She found one that made her completely fine. I will reply again tomorrow THursday the 11th to let you know. Definitely need good stuff I get sick on a porch swing, can't imagine a boat! :D

I have actually heard that drinking liquor helps sea sickness. Something to do with your equibrium swayin' with the boat. So that's what I'm prescribing...lots of rum and bahama mamas!!! :D

OK I believe that it is called Bomine or something like that. She said that it is over the counter. And she said it worked wonders, so hopefully it works for you and me. I took a cruise ship over to the Bamhmas when I went on vacation there, and on the way back there was a storm at sea and I was literally being thrown into the walls walking down the hall, so hopefully the boat is bigger and there are no storms. Cya on the boat!!!!!! BOAT DRINKS ! :lol:

Its actually Bonine and it works quite well, without causing all the drowisiness.

my brother is a boat captain, and he recommends ginger root capsules.

he says over-the-counter stuff might make you feel sleepy or feel out of it.

he said to take ginger root three times a day- it's all natural (and is okay to drink alcohol with!) :)

Just picked up my Bonine, says to "avoid alcoholic drinks".

I just penciled in the word "warm" after avoid, so it says "avoid warm alcoholic drinks"

I guess I should be fine then..........roight.......(belch)...... WooHoo!!!!

Everybody knows, that you stand on one foot,
hold your breath, rub your tummy, pat your head,
sing 'Hammer Time', turn clockwise, and whistle Dixie
while singing the blues...
