I haven't had a bad cold in at least a couple of years..I don't remember when the last one was....I also think getting outside and getting fresh air every day in the winter is important....Oh yea... and stay away from sick people...


    no kidding tho people close to me try not to come around when they are sick....when the wife is sick she gets the porch .......
    Yeah, back when I smoked I'd get bronchitis at least twice a year (usually late fall/early winter and then again late winter/early spring) with a cold or two in between. Now, I'll get a bad cold maybe once a year. And this is also the first year I've gotten a flu shot since I was a kid. Quitting smoking was one of the best things I've ever done.

    I'm a smoker, and I MIGHT get a cold here and there, but the worst I get is every other year around november/december I got an upper-respiratory thing for about a week. This year though, I OD'd on the bundling up thing early, and seemed to avoid pretty much everything but some nasal/sinus congestion, thankfully.

    oh, and dezz doesnt smoke cigs to my knowledge, just the Mary J Juana...

    I'm shocked you don't have chronic bronchitis.

    I have acute bronchitis, I get it only twice a year, spring and winter.
    I thought we had something special!!!

    I've managed to somehow build a fairly strong immune system. I credit it to honestly NOT being healthy for over a decade because i kinda always feel like i have a head cold (idk...). I very rarely get sick with anything. I had the flu twice in the past 20 years without flu shots(im not opposed to it, just dont do it), and like i said, only a respiratory infection once in awhile, but even my doctor thinks its from old exposure, so i've been sure to "bundle up" like mom always told me to. haha

    I really have no explanation...

    weird fact:
    both times I've had the flu were the weeks following the Giants winning their past 2 Super Bowls. Clearly it's because I used every tiny bit of myself to assist with the playoff runs =]

    Haha that's pretty funny, hopefully you get the flu again in February.

    I don't get sick either. Recently I went in for a physical before school and they told me everything was literally perfect.
    My immune system rocks.

    I remember one summer where I literally laid in bed all day and ate cheetos, and one day I was like I hate feeling lazy, I'm going to the gym.
    Ran for 20 minutes straight no problem. I'm weird.
