Should recovering alcoholics use nyquil? There is something in that medicine that makes me want to go out and get loaded and it just feels a little too nice...it almost makes me want to get sick so I can have a little more.
No, a person in recovery would be best served staying away from Nyquil. Nyquil is 25% alcohol. That is a very high concentration, even though it is a small amount overall. This can set off a neurological craving in the brain for alcohol or another substance of abuse. Best to stick to something else when ill.
