Is it ok to drink alcohol when I'm sick?
I know that I need to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate when sick, but will it hurt me to have a few glasses of wine?
I don’t want to prolong this illness any further, but I have been craving a drink or two.
Are there certain types of alcohol that are any “better” than others to drink when you are feeling sick? I know a lot of this lies in myths/old wives tales, but I thought I’d ask.
Just FYI I have a sinus infection/chest cold, going on for a week now.
