One of my sons brought a cold back with him from college and gave it to us. Stuffed nose, difficult breathing, stand-ten-feet-back dragon breath --- just like smoking!
I believe. Btw, the worst component is the smoking cough. It's specially disgusting, because it has got a cigarette-flavour, literally! I experienced it pretty often, and I thank my lungs and complete respiratory system for being sensitive enough to warn me that cigarettes aren't my type of sport. :rolleyes:

I keep smoking with a cold. The lungs feel more clear, though I do know its altogether for the worse.

Good luck to you, seirousboutit!

So, you folks from 2007, how are you making out?

I quit smoking cigarettes four years and seven months ago after smoking for just over 28 years. It's a challenging thing to accomplish, especially depending on how your body metabolises the drugs involved. I have to admit, I still think about smoking at least once a day. I wouldn't ever even touch one again because I know I'd be hooked again immediately. And I couldn't bear to go through all of the physical difficulties I had in order to quit. It can be a super tough haul beyond the psychological aspects.

So, please tell. How goes it?

I've been cigarette free for about 14 years after smoking for 15. When I was smoking, I couldn't imagine not smoking. Now I can't imagine going back. I am soooooo glad that I quit! The first six months were the worst though.
