[b]Well, Momma Bear, I'm actually quite embarrassed to be the only one that is still smoking that has responded in your thread (and probably the only person still smoking on the board since you got a great response [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] ). Embarrassed, but that's about it. I know I shouldn't do it and why I shouldn't.
So, am I really the only one? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] [/b]
[After spending 1 1/2 hours reading the now-infamous thread in Intro section, I'm only going to hop in & post here, where it's much calmer.]
Cindy S-C,(Oh-brave-soul-to-admit-still-smoking) --
You are working so hard to see that your children live long, safe, healthy lives -- you simply amaze me at the amount of time you spend on them and on PA issues.
You're just one precious gem, you are. I don't think I need to tell you that you just have to get *yourself* to recognize your own worth & then treat yourself accordingly.
BTW, I am just so glad you've stayed on this board.

NO i have never smoked,but here is a good note to announce. My husband has been about 3 weeks without. Yesterday he was miserable,but would not admit it. I told the kids just why not to smoke.
My dad smoked from the time he was 14 and now has emphasema. He is so sorry he ever smoked. He has only got to have oxygen at night as of now. Hopefully he will not get any worse. I was in such denial when i found out he had it that I would not listen to anyone.
I don't judge anyone by weather they smoke or not but if they can quit I give them credit for that. Good luck to anyone out there that can quit. claire

I have never smoked.
Cirgarette smoke does, however, bother my allergies which (over the years) have developed into more of an asthmatic reaction than a nasal one.
If you do smoke, please keep it way from your PA. If your trying to quit - best of luck!

jeannine, welcome! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] (I'm sure that I just spelled your UserName wrong, so please forgive me, welcome regardless [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] ).
ajas_folks, thank-you for your really super post. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Don't worry about me, my New Year's resolution this year (I never make them) was to help *me* this year, but unfortunately not in something as what I consider as simple (then why haven't I done it?) as quitting smoking. I think I'm actually suffering a mid-life crisis (want to post that in Off Topic if this board ever settles down so that you can navigate anywhere else other than contentious threads just to see what's happening now) and I do have a few different things I have in mind for *me* (and the little extensions of me - my children) this year. Here's hoping to them....
But quitting smoking is not the top priority.
I loved your post though, thank-you.
Momma Bear, I find it interesting that someone has popped into the thread twice and has yet still not answered your question. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I have never smoked, but grew up in a house with smoker-parents. I always hated it -- I remember the first time a boy hugged me, he asked me, "Do you SMOKE?!?" I just smelled like a smoker, I guess, and I hated that. I vowed to always smell good after that!! LOL! (Seriously, I have an "issue"!!!! But that's a thread for another day!)
Cindy -- I love that you are a lady about it! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
And to wrap this up, I don't NEED to smoke. God knows I have enough OTHER vices ... as I am sure we all do.

I am waiting breathlessly for Mommabear's resolution to this question, but thought I would add this: my father smoked when I was young, but quit before any of my siblings were born. I am the only one with asthma or allergies.

I don't smoke. In my disco days used to share a pack with 3 or 4 friends on Friday night because they made us dizzy and it was cheaper than drinking. (LOTS of year ago) Trying to be cool, as if wearing a white bra under black lights wasn't cool enough?
My DH has smoked for over 20 years, but quit just over a year ago. Now he's addicted to Nicorettes. He was a polite smoker too, never in the house, never in the car (when we were with him), NEVER in the baby's face.

Now the moment you've all been waiting for:
Question two. LOL.
What similarities, if any, do you see between tobacco smoke and peanut protein? (or any other food substance that causes anaphylactic allergies)?

For the smoker or the anaphylactic, they both know these things are harmful and can potentially kill them?

One brave soul. Thank you!
I'll give a freebie to get it going: They also are things people enjoy.
Anyone else?
