If you really feel this superior, why not "Pain Pussies" for those who need opiates
to control pain and bring emotional relief.
Compound Femur? Just walk it off, you big "pain pussy".
Lost both your legs in an IED attack? Lay there and deal with it soldier, you're what we call "Pain Pussy" in my Army.
If you were joking it was in bad taste. If you're not joking, I hope I've made my point.

In my personal experience with using Nyquil, as a comfort med (attempting to ease a Cocaine
crash), it required overdosing the medication. As in: half a bottle. This is bad because you're getting way too much Acetaminophen
and more antihistamines.
Doxylamine is the sleep aid in Nyquil and is an antihistamine
, but is also called a hypnotic. It builds tolerance quickly, so while Nyquil might work for one night, it loses it's ability to induce sleep quickly on successive nights...and let's not overlook the hangover.
Coming off of Coke
, the hangover was horrific (actually there is no word in English I can think of to warn you of how bad you'll feel). So, I simply cannot imagine the suffering experience should you wake up in opiate
withdrawal AND a Nyquill hangover.
So, there are many reasons to avoid Nyquil as a comfort med or recreational substance.
There are OTC meds with Doxylamine only. Please be careful.
