Why does a little bit of alcohol make me vomit hours later?

I have a sensitive stomach and 1 drink can make me throw up 6 hours later. Help me find a way to combat this!

When I was a teenager, I could drink whatever alcohol I liked, and the only thing that could make me throw up was excessive consumption. Now I'm in my 20s a cocktail or 2 will make me throw up the next morning (I pretty much stick to vodka). The only thing that keeps me from vomiting is smoking pot. When the pot starts to wear off (1-2 hours later) I go back to being nauseous.
If I don't have any pot around, I throw up yellow egg-yolk-like bile (apologies for the image).
Recently I drank (probably a little too much) and threw up every 10 minutes for 4 hours. I could not figure out how to stop it. Drinking a tiny bit of water or sprite didn't do a thing. Eating bread didn't help either.
Why do I always throw up hours after drinking? Does anyone know of a way to prevent this?
Also, if I start throwing up for hours after drinking too much, what can I do to end the vomiting after there is obviously nothing left to vomit up?
