Getting high is bad... Just tell the truth because there is no getting out of that one... hopefully your parents wont take it too badly and will just make it a "lesson to be learned, not to get high"

I was the master of getting myself out of things like this... and I seriously cant think of one excuse for you to use. In your situation its kinda hard because they have it in writing. In my opinion cold medicine is one of the worst drugs to use to get high. I'd say you just need to face it and take whatever your punishment may be. If anything, you'll stop using cold medicine to get high. You don't want to mess around with overdosing on that stuff.

When reality is a prison, your mind can set you free.

Just to let you know, here on TH we do not encourage any member to participate in illegal activities. And therefore we are not going to help you find lies on how to get out of this mess. We are here to help people, not teach them knew ways to lie to their parents about their illegal drug use.

I know it’s not easy but it would be best to come clean with them. Lying is only going to make this situation worse. If you tell them the truth they might be a little less mad with you and the situation. Plus they can then help you get the support you need to overcome some of the things you are going through, that make you turn to abusing cold medicine.

There isn't a way to get out of it without lying, which I am not going to tell you how to lie. If you're that determined for them not to know, you will figure out a lie no matter what people say here. We can't tell you how to lie anyways, as we won't encourage you to use drugs.

Anyways, I don't suggest lying, at all. They will find out eventually, whether it's meeting with your neighbors or in the future (near or distant.) If there is clear evidence you did ask for the medication, I assume there is because of them having the email, what use will lying do in this situation? I'm sure this alone, without lying, gives your parents enough reason to not believe you in the future. You should just tell the truth, it will generally make it easier on you. Owning up to it is to your advantage, no one elses. If you are addicted to cold medications, this would also be a good time to ask for help with it. Since, they will know now and there's no opening up about it to do, simply asking to get help.
It's up to you, good luck with it.

“There is nothing beautiful about the wreckage of a human being.
There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.
What is beautiful is their strength, their resilience, their fortitude
as they display an ocean of courage when they pick through the
wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill
