Hi Lee, Charles
 For me so far I think no. 1 is the case of vomiting for me. There was 
always a point where something would rise up very quickly and I would vomit. 
This happens in all my major sessions and in some mini sessions. I've had 
the feeling that I never got into the full initiation effects of the full 
sessions because I vomited too soon.
  I used motion sickness pills in the past and I'm not sure there was any 
difference. I still vomited.
