Does drinking on an empty stomach cause vomitting?

Patient: My fiancé got drunk on an empty stomach and when he ate he threw up. I have horrible emetophobia, did he vomit because he was drunk?

 

 

Doctor: You mentioned a single episode of vomiting with no repeat of vomiting in the hours and days after.The most likely ca se of vomiting in that case would be the intake of alcohol.
