    Thor,do you exercise? My 3 times a week at the Y pool really help. I did all the machines,including the Elliptical, but decided the therapy and pool made me feel better. Most Insurance companies cover this. Silver Sneakers .

    I was very weak after a bout of gastroenteritis. Really built myself back up.

    Every time I go to the doctor, they check my o2=99%. Then listen to my chest, then listen again. Then the doctor looks at me, and says "...well, you would save a lot of money if you quit smoking", and I look at him and say "I could save a lot of money if I quit coming to the doctor so much". Then we both laugh.

    Well, you are one of the lucky ones.I heard that same thing for 30 years before the cancer killed him, very quickly,I might add. 4 days in the hospital.

    Never mind that you reek to high heaven, give your children breathing problems. Your house smells,so do your clothes.

    Smoking was a big thing in the generation before me and in mine. Thank God most people understand what it does to the average person's lungs.

    Hysteria Reigns? I wondered why I was having all kinds of physical symptoms. Can not even stand to watch the news as they try to explain their idiotic coverage. I am reminded of how they pushed the Iraq war,then tried to explain that,too.

    The diabetes will take me long before smoking ever could.

    You have diabetes and still smoke?

    Honestly, I am not being mean here. My Mother smoked, my Husband smoked. The house and care reeked for years. Our light blue Olds had black clear up the drivers side. Caused my Son to have bad allergies.

    I bought a new car, no one was allowed to smoke in it. When I visited my Mother,even my packed clothes had to be washed.

    I just wish you would try to quit. I know it is a hard habit. My husband quit the month before he died, after finding out on Thanksgiving Day his second brother had lung cancer. He lived until January 1ST. Our youngest graduated from College two weeks before. His brother went through chemo and radiation. 9 months. We buried him next to his brother.

    Yes, I know, all the evils in the world are due to smoking. Honestly, so much propaganda has been put out about smoking, that it tends to make it all lose credibility. I even heard on the news a while back that smokers are more likely to have children that are bullies.
    I am of course, considerate around non smokers. But I expect the same respect from them. I had someone walk by me the other day, and I had an unlit cig in my hand. The person walking by started coughing, and mumbling under his breath about inconsiderate smokers. I had not lit it yet, because I didn't want my smoke to bother them. But I guess just the sight of a cig is enough to set some people of. This isn't directed at you personally, it's just for those who choose to be inconsiderate of someone who smokes that is being considerate to those who don't smoke.

    Well, I can say I'm very glad I quit smoking just over 6 years ago now. Hubby wouldn't quit until he couldn't breathe anymore. Now he has trouble walking more than 10 feet or so because he's out of breath. His activity is severely limited. His lung capacity is limited because of scaring.

    My husband took statins for a long time and it almost crippled him with joint pain and muscle cramps. You are supposed to pay attention to muscle cramps while taking statins...this can be dangerous systemically.

    Statin side effects: Weigh the benefits and risks - Mayo Clinic

    His doctor changed him over to Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules and Niacin. Along with the Med change and my strict monitoring of his diet...his levels are perfect. Diet and exercise, of course, is the best way to fix lipid problems.

    As far as the OP question, there is some research supporting your grouchiness complaint.

    Did I post any of that? I simply told you of my experience and my feelings on the subject. I also wonder how you can spend $37 a carton on cigarettes. That was the cost when I refused to go to the store to buy them for my Mother. It was a control feature with her. She was fully capable of going herself in her new Caddie.
