There are lots of different things that will damage your lungs, I am SOOOO thankful I listened to a lady working in the machine shop next to me back when I was 28 and really started protecting myself in this damn autobody industry that is FULL of nasties for the lungs.

I just lost a friend a few weeks ago to a damn bird feather "dust" that destroyed his lungs! He was letting doves go at weddings for goodness sakes!

dinger Good news, Geezer. Now you need to get away from the cig smoke and come out here for some tire smoke next fall.

i quit smoking 5 years ago, I have never heard anyone say they wish they had never quit. Aside from some weight gain, I am doing pretty good. Ask your Doc about prevacid, if I start getting acid anything I take a 10 day dose. It usuall works for 3-6 months before I have to dose again. Avoid the late snacks, specially if they petain to anything acidic, tomato sauce, orange juice, etc Pizza can rip me a new one. . Chocolate and peanut butter tear me up also. Take care of yourself, you gave us a scare!

MARTINSR Good to hear you are doing better and can continue to do so with your healthier diet and quitting that damn smoking!

All I can say to anyone who smokes or doesn't protect them selves properly when working on these old cars or drinks too much or any other bad habit, you want to see your grand kids! Believe me, you WANT to see your grand kids. And if this doesn't pertain to you, you have no kids or already have grand kids, pick what ever you wish, you WANT to see your team win the World Series, you WANT to see your great grand kids, you WANT to do something, do all the right things so you can.
