I was just wondering whether or not anyone else does this. I remember being sick when I was younger and my mam saying the first thing she'd get me around in the shop was a 2 litre bottle of 7-Up. Is this purely an Irish thing? Been feeling like crap the past few days and I've had a bottle of it next to the bed.
Tonic water and Coca-Cola too. Both work wonders. Best to have them not too cold and best to let them go a little less fizzy too.
Feel better, OP!
I've heard it many times in hospitals that flat 7-up is just as good for you any any other Lucazade type drink out there.
Yes, flat 7-Up and dry toast. I kind of miss it in a funny way...
I can't do it anymore because it reminds me of being sick
Yeah but you're supposed to boil it first to flatten it. Otherwise the gas could make you hurl again
It has to be boiled to get rid of the fizz. Nothing better for an upset stomach.
I thought it was just my mother made me do that!!!
defizzed 7up ... That's how you knew it was serious... Out came the 7up... and it's been stirred up to get rid of most of the fizz...
Yeah, always what my mam gave me, easier on the stomach I suppose
Get back to studying, waster.
I was always told 7up was good for you when you were sick, thought it was just an Irish thing but then I saw it on South Park (though they mentioned Sprite, same thing!)
My mammy used to always get me Lucozade
Yup nothing better than a drink full of sugar causing osmotic diarrhoea, to exacerbate an already existing stomach problem. I would use rehydration sachets, but of course mammy knows best.
