Cough medicine with alcohol and codeine. In the 1960s and 1970s, soldiers complaining of a cold were issued a small bottle of cough medicine. It contained alcohol an codeine. Many drank it down for the buzz.
Go to the medics and get yourself a bottle of G.I. gin. It's great on a cold day like this.
He is useless once he gets some of that G.I. gin.
