Normally I hate being sick. I've been sick for about a week and it seems like the last phase of a cold for me is the constant dry cough. It's not fun.
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.
