    That must be it, PizDoff. Both of my grandfather's smoked since boyhood and they lived to be in their 90s. They were both good fighters too. My mother's father was especially a good fighter. He was about 5'7" tall, but he weighed 204lbs.. Built like a brickhouse. Didn't have any teeth left (lots of bar room brawls), but he was tougher than nails! ;) Hehe

    I smoked for years while doing MA. It never impacted my conditioning in the slightest. I could always outlast all but the truly superhuman. Everyone would always give me this line: "if you do this well smoking, then how much better will you be when you quit?"

    Well a year and a half ago I quit. I didn't want to but my girlfriend made me. Guess what? Zero change in my lung capacity and conditioning. Only difference: I smell better. w00t. God I miss smoking. sigh

    Asia,

    My brother was telling me that by the first week of Ranger training even the mormon folk were dipping (though the smokers had also shifted to dip), any experience with the like?

    Also read an interesting report that the AF and Navy routinely provide pilots with amphetimines that are illegal to everyone else. Kinda scary.

    Ok buddy, marijuana smoke has never been PROVEN to be linked to lung cancer. Not to mention the fact that its not physically addictive. Weed should be legall and cigs outlawed, im pretty sure thats a flawless idea.

    Kittens: Yeah, I know how that goes. I quit smoking because of a stupid promise I made to my girlfriend at some point in time that I'd quit in a year. To be hones, I didn't even think we'd be together after the year, and didn't take it seriously...

    It's interesting to note that the Japanese, as a society, smoke to the most excess, yet have some of the lowest rates of lung cancer worldwide. Must be something in the diet...

    Smoking gives you just as much benefit as any 'sports supplement' you can buy off the shelf.

    So light up !
