I used to too. Taking up bike riding was my reward to myself for quitting.

Good for you!!

So, it will get easier on my chest then??? Sometimes when I get to the top of a big ass hill, it just ******** hurts to breathe..but like I said..it's only been 3 months since I quit...


I smoke a good pack and 1/2 a day for 17 years...I guess I need to have a little patience ...

Quit seven years ago last March. Never thought I could, but after forty-something years, finally decided it was time.
Had a physical exam a couple of years ago, the doc couldn't believe I had been a smoker, no apparent damage. Hopefully, I've dodged the bullet.

I have never smoked...*anything.* I grew up with a smoker (my mother) so I've had pneumonia, bronchitis multiple times and last summer, bacterial bronchitis. I have Asthma "Lite" too. I may as well ride my bike in front of a dump truck than smoke, it'd be slightly faster.

My dad was a heavy smoker and he smoked inside the house. he didn't believe in that "smoking outside of his own castle" BS. I've constantly battled bronchitis but I think bicycling has helped. The flu didn't even get me this year and I've always been a yearly subscriber.

Listen people - we have a serious World overpopulation problem brewing, and I don't see any of you doing something to stop it!
