Support and practical advice

There are a number of non-commercial websites and bulletin boards for people with emetophobia. Remember that some of the advice given by other sufferers may lead to maintaining your problem (e.g. a better way of avoiding any reminders of vomit) rather than overcoming your phobia and doing the things in your life which are important to you.

Support groups include:

Gut Reaction

International Emetophobia Society

Emetophobics Proboard
