    This is sort of related to our other topic. I am interested in how people who smoke stay fit and healthy (with the exception of the habit).

    As I said in the other forum, I run and lift often.

    They used to smoke in gyms in Italy.

    People would walk on the treadmills and hold a cigarette, very Bella figura.

    Eat healthy and keep exercising. Same things one should do without cigarettes.

    Bob Crandall, the former long-time CEO of American Airlines, used to smoke three packs a day, but was also known for doing conference calls every morning from a treadmill, where he allegedly ran 4-5 miles a day.

    Don't know if he smoked whilst running on the treadmill.

    I don't think there is any secrets about the effects of smoking.

    That being said- I am not really a smoker. I have during occassional periods been one of those people who will grab a cigarette after a couple beers and smoke anyways though. During these periods, my own experience has always been that even if I had only a cigarette or two- the next day or so when I was working out I would find myself gasping for air a lot more. That being said, I was a childhood asthmatic, so maybe I am not the best example.

    I have a close friend who says that after she runs it makes her want a cigarette even more. Also when I was an exchange student in Germany, I remember when playing soccer in the afternoon, we would take cigarette breaks so between goals so that some of the participants could enjoy a celebratory smoke.

    I really don't get smokers...that being said I think smoking is nothing compared to some of the drugs other members of my generation are taking.

    I would rather be in a smoke-filled world than a LSD / Coke / Angel dust-filled world...

    Cancer is very painful and then you die of it.

    Having been a pack-a-day smoker for 7 years until two years ago, when I quit, my experience was always that right after working out I wanted a cigarette like you wouldn't believe. It was always the best cigarette of the day, with the possible exception of the morning wake-up-and-coffee cigarette.

    I can't imagine it any more, though. Except for that morning cigarette and coffee. Oh man, do I miss that.

    That and the post-prandial cigarette. Those were good. And the ones smoked whilst drinking.

    But I don't really miss smoking anymore after almost 10 months smoke-free.

    Who does Angel dust anymore? If people are on acid -- they're too worried about their own trip to care about you. Coke-heads you might have to look out for -- but even these types can be dealth with.

    Now tweakers on the other hand.....

    I recently started biking. I continue to run and lift. However, I am only smoking about 5 cigarettes a day. I feel great though.
