I'm flying for the first time on Thursday and needless to say, I'm a little bit nervous.

Any tips?

You will be alright, chew gum so ur ears won't hurt as much and bring a laptop/portable DVD player/Ipod or something to read, especially if its a long flight.

Chew gum, maybe have a beer to cool your mind down. I think its fun to be honest with you, maybe a couple bumps in the air, but you'll be good. I am flying on Saturday, where you headed?

How long is the flight?

Ipod + laptop + gum/candy + pillow is all you really need...

Yea it's really just a thing you have to do to get over. No other way around it.

It's not even 'not that bad' - there's absolutely nothing wrong with it.

It's not an unpleasant thing, it's not a dangerous activity. Just take something to do - some music or a book - and make sure you drink water before and during the flight - just makes you feel better on arrival.

i'm afraid of heights, so i try not to look out of the windows, or if i have a window seat, i just close the shade.

I'm also afraid of heights, but I love looking out the window. It's such a beautiful sight, especially when you're flying over the clouds.

Just relax and you definitely need something to keep you busy. Not only for entertainment, but also to keep you from thinkning of all the bad things that will most likely not happen. Haha Just expect a couple of bumps, but it's all part of the experience.
