Default Re: any ex smokers?

I was starting back up at the boxing gym (after being out for several months) while quitting cold turkey.

That was a rough several weeks. Not the cessation, that was easy (2nd time in my life I've done it) - but finding the wind to put in a proper workout even long after beginning to clear out my lungs.

Not holding your breath is excellent advice. Your body will instinctively compel you toward gasping & retention. Ignore it. Breathe normally, regularly and evenly.
