The vomiting does not remove the damaging effects of the smoking as it goes in to the respiratory passage. So vomiting cannot get back the smoke/tobacco outside, once it is inhaled.

The vomiting can decrease the effects of alcohol if it is done immediately withing 30 minutes, after the consumption, as it won't be absorbed by the intestines.
