    Wickedly hot curry. Clears the sinuses very fast.
  4. Large amounts of curry to clear the tubes and give you fuel to fight the disease, hot toddy to help you ignore the symptoms; soak in as hot a bath as you can stand for a bit; then straight to bed for 10 hours gonk.

    None of this pissing about 'Oh I'm so ill I can't do anything' for me. Just get it over with and get on with things.
  5. A good curry works for me. Or a whiskey honey and lemon. Or a small glass of port is good at waking you up for the day in the morning!

    Ah, whisky, honey and lemon. My aunt's excellent throat remedy with the addition of a spoonful of glycerine. I well remember her lining up the children to take their medicine, and the Dads and older (RN) cousins joining the line!

    Not sure it had any medical benefits, but by 'eck it cheered us up!!!!

    Sod' bleedin' law!!!

    Off to have a hot curry, paracetamol, hot rum/whisky toddy (with or without honey and lemon) and an early night......................looks like I was tempting fate :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

  11. CS clears the nasal cavities.A bit tricky on the tube though.
  12. Lemsip, rum (or buchu brandy if you can get it), honey and lemon juice. Bung in two aspirin and top up with hot water. Into the scratcher early and sleep as long as you can. Reckon a good night's kip is the best start to kicking the snots.
  13. I heard a bit of bumming down irvine beach does the trick "apparently"
