Avatar 10:54am Dan B From Upstate:

Worst decision of my life was starting smoking. Finally kicked it about two years ago after a scare. I couldn't breathe. It was enough to put me off of cigarettes forever. Haven't even been tempted, and I breathe a lot better now.

Oh, Ken, I didn't know you smoked, sorry to hear that. It wreaks havoc on many of the systems. Start a breath practice (seriously), I'll look for a link to send to you. And, you could play that Courtney Barnet track about having trouble breathing in.

@bbell - breathe practice.. like meditating?
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 11:17am bbell:

Breathe practice is a path towards meditation, but it is a very deliberate way of putting a control on the breath, guiding it physically and mentally, gradually expanding one's lung capacity (over time), and it has all sorts of great physiological and psychological benefits. And no hangover the next day.
Avatar 11:19am Dan B From Upstate:

I think I could use a link to that, too, bbell.

Ken from Hyde, I'm a non-smoker who within the past year took up vaping, both w & w/o nicotine, in an attempt to lose weight. I haven't done any for about the past month or two, though. It might be a ticket to nowhere, but it's not a ticket to anywhere bad.
