DailyMail- Cough medicines are waste of money, doctors declared today.Both NHS bosses and leading GPs have dismissed the products - and say traditional home made remedies with lemon or honey to be the best approach.
Oh, goddamn it. Listen I knew that cough medicines didn't work all that well. That's why you always end up with a cough for like weeks on end, sick or not sick. The shit doesn't work at all though? Hats off to these people tricked the whole damn nation for decades. 28 year old me? Pretty indifferent on the matter. 10 year old me is throwing a fucking temper tantrum.
Do you remember how bad cough syrup tastes? I will NEVER forget that. It's probably more memorable than the first time I had sex, for all the wrong reasons. Had to chase me around the house for an hour to get me to take that crap. Now it turns out my parents could have just given me lemon or honey? Better yet, they should have just given me some whiskey and called it a day. Tastes just as bad, but guaranteed to do the job. Assuming the job is to get your child to pass out and shut the fuck up.
Whatever, I haven't actually tried to treat a cold in like 15 years. Toughen up and let the cold fight itself. Do you really even consider yourself 'sick' when you have a cold? The last cold that got me to call out of work sick was a hangover. In fact, I think they all were. It's not like you can go to the doctor now anyway, everything is fucking ebola.
