I had a buddy of mine say that alcohol helps with the fighting of a cold. I have never heard of this before but the more I thought about it, the more sense it made.
Can anyone here verify this? No I am not an alcoholic
Sounds like your uncle may have tipped the boat over in December to catch a cold, thus having a good reason to hit the whiskey.Charlie MV wrote:My uncle [88 now] claims that a fifth of Jack Daniels mixed with falling out of a Sunfish sailboat in December is a sure fire cold cure. He was fuzzy on how well it worked the other 11 months.
To think, a woman drove me to drink and I didn't even have the decency to thank her. ~ W. C.

When I have a "Hot Toddy" I know darn good and well there there is no real medicinal effect except maybe the crushed asprin. Other than that it is a "feel good". Yes alcohol in excess is a real killer but in moderation - no big harm.
Snifff - snifff - Is that a cold I feel coming on Naw just foolin.
