Default Cure for the common cold

I'm all out of ideas, I've tried Zinc, antihystamine, tylenol cold, and even dayquill (eww). I'm out of ideas, and this cold is causing me to get behind in school, being that I can't think... Help!

Drink some Vitamin C and use vapor rub under your nostrils. Alo whats good is a vapor mist. You boil some water, put some powder in (I believe you can buy the stuff ta the Pharmacy over the counter) and breathe in the steam. Ahhhhhhh

ahh, I forgot about that vaporub stuff! I used to love that! sweet, and I'll get some Vitamin C while I'm at it. Ryan, I've heard some bad stuff about that, like it'* addictive or something, so, uh, might wanna stick with the vitamin c and vaporub

I always take Echinaccea and Vitamin C and bomb my system with it. If that doesn't work I take the "remedy" which consists of cherry cough drops, honey, and Jim Beam whiskey which has fermented over the summer time. It is yummy!! And it cures what ails ya I just had to take some of the remedy last week.

So, I guess the consesus is tons of vitamins, and, um, whiskey. Still in college, Tracy! No alcohol in dorm rooms... But, yeah, I'm gonna try to get out to the store today, hopefully my car'* ball joints won't break off , and I think I'm gonna get some Echinaccea, some vitamin c, and probably some of that vaporub while I'm at it. Thanks a bunch you guys
