Just dropping in on my thread. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] I'll give it a little longer to "pan out". My oh My. Do I raise that much suspicion?
Hugs to you for smoking outside. More than anyone, I would believe it from you. Not that I advocate smoking, but I, as a human being myself, understand we all have baggage and there is none perfect, eh? Everyone comes with baggage. It's not the baggage that matters, but how we carry it. Or how we help others to carry it. And...................OH YES, I AM DEFINITELY GOING SOMEWHERE WITH THIS. PEANUT RELATED, BUT NOT LIMITED TO. OH, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. hehe. Unfortunately, I am sleep deprived at the moment and need to take down my Christmas tree [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] And it is MY tree. Down to the last ornament. MINE, I TELL YOU, ALLLLLLLLLL MINE. I am the only one capable of doing it correctly. (off on a tangent here,------------I wrap the ornaments in tissue paper so we can "open" them the following Christmas and remember those who gave them to us fondly. Or remember what we were doing when we bought them. It's my favorite part.) As able and innovative as my hubby is, I wouldn't DREAM of letting him do it. LOL. (Did I forget to mention "nimble"????)
To those who have quit: BRAVO!!!! As an CCU nurse, I can only tell you that you just laid 1,000,000 watts of light on your future! I won't go into it here, but you would never believe the unthinkable things it does to your body, and those around you. Lungs are the tip of the iceberg.
To those who never touched cigarettes, pipes, cigars, chaw, or tobacco in any form: You are better than me. I probably smoked less than a carton in my day. (Thank my controlling nature for avoiding getting hooked) Congratulations in the biggest way! You are the better for it.
Enough said for now, I let this thread "mature" abit.

Never smoked a day in my life... Never been around smokers either. Except for my uncle who smoked Gitanes (French cigs. totally unfiltered, the worst kind). When I was 6 years old, he let me "take a puff" on his Gitane. I coughed for 48 hours, and have never tried it since then.
Hubby smoked just a little when we met, and he quit right away. He only smoked in his car, while sitting in traffic. No one from my side of the family smokes.

I don't smoke. My mom did all my life, until she died in 1994 - from oral cancer. It was a horrific thing to witness.
To those of you contemplating quitting, please do... if not for yourself, for those around you who love you.

I smoked from 1983-1993. I quit when I became pregnant with my 8 y/o (no food allergies). I didn't start up again. My 6 y/o is the one with multiple food allergies.

I never have. I grew up in a family where my father smoked all day and all night. I hated it. I couldn't wait to grow up and have my own house with my own rules...Now I am married with two children and no one is allowed to smoke in my house, including my father.

I smoked for many years and quit about 16 years ago. Haven't had one since.

Never have even tried. Both parents smoked when I was young. DH did (outside, too) when we first met - and for about 2 years after that. At the price of them now - I'm sure glad he doesn't anymore!

Never, and neither of my parents did either.

LOL! Now I've gotta go read what all the fuss was about on this board over the weekend . . .
PS -- Answering question, light smoker until age 30 -- gave myself the 30th birthday present of QUITTING. That was more than a decade ago. So far, so good. PA child born 8 years after I quit smoking. Just wish now I had quit PBJ's too. . . but that's for another thread. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
