      I finally did it!

      I'm 16 years old and finally managed to swallow a pill! XD

      How old were you when you swallowed your first one? Or, are you still trying to?

      Hmm, I don't really remember when I "learned" to do this. I take vitamin pills somewhat regularly and I've used basic medicine like paracetamol and aspirin since I was young. When I was a kid my parents used to mash up a paracetamol pill into powder on a table spoon and mix it with water. Gross, but at least I could swallow it easily.

      I must have been somewhere in my teens when I just did it. I've never had to use a lot of pills anyway, so that's probably why I don't really remember much of it.

      I usually take mine without any liquid or anything, even Ibuprofen 300mg ones, that are actually quite big.

      I don't take pills, and can't remember the last time I needed one. I am 27 though, and the idea of taking large pills still bothers me.

      lol Congrats on such a big first step

      It took me forever to properly take pills. When I was in my teens, I used to have to stick it as far back in my mouth as possible then quickly take a drink.
      When I got pregnant for the first time and needed to start taking vitamins, I slowly got over the initial gag reaction.
      Now-a-days, I take upwards of 10 pills at one time. I just throw them into my mouth then rinse them down lol But I still have trouble with uncoated pills that want to stick to your mouth.

      Taking meds without liquid is a very bad idea. At least for me. If I take ibuprofen with no liquid, I'll soon be barfing my brains out. And some meds I have to eat a little something right before or after taking for the same reason.

      Probably around 12 or something. If I mixed it with some rice (you can swallow that without chewing) it was pretty easy really. Took a little bit before I could just swallow a pill with a glass of water.

      I think I was like 7. I find small pills harder to swallow than big ones for some reason

      I think it's because pills don't have the texture of food. It's easy to swallow steak and something with texture, but pills are hard and small and just start up my gag reflex.
