Nyquil doesn't help, nor does any other OTC med. Enter Laguvulin 16yo scotch whisky. I haven't coughed once tonight since I've started drinking. And the wife says, "Keep it up, I'd rather have you drunk than coughing. I'd rather you keep drinking the next week, rather than coughing."
"I'll do my best," was my reply.
We've been fighting that dry cough for about three or more weeks and have been trying the Dristan cold medication every 4 hours.
To think Lagavulin will help dry coughs and here I was drinking Caol Ila CS tonight. I'll go pour some Islay cough medicine right away.
Did you and I attend U of M together a long time ago? You may be in Edmonchuk, but you sure sound like some of the Aggies I used to party with. I'd like to add that it was an Aggy Degree friend that introduced me to Single Malts one Saturday morning - a Glenlivet 12 yo in 1977. I've never been without one in my possession since.
I must not have infused my body with enough Lagavulin as I still have a dry cough, just not so frequent. Maybe I should crack the 1979 and let it course through the body to help the lymphatic system. Is the sun over the yard arm yet?
I think you have the Badmonkey mistaken for someone else. I'm a UBC Thunderbird through and through, and I didn't even start drinking until I was in my late-20s. That helped me skip the part about drinking low-grade swill in vast quantities and go straight to the quality.
I keep my intake fairly low most of the time. I have found that over the last 1 1/2 years that I am catching colds and the flu much less often than before. Whether that has anything to do with my daily dram is anyone's guess.
