I don't smoke. Never have. I prefer to not get sick, but I do anyway.
I think it is great you quit smoking and all, but unfortunately some of us have a poor immune system.
I understand that you can have a poor immune system. However, preferring not to get sick and choosing not to are really different things.
The human body will remain in perfect health unless we do something to change it.
Our mental attitude has a lot ( a lot ) to do with our health, mental and physical.
If you have problems with your immune system, then certainly you do whatever your doctor says.
But, along with that, you can greatly increase your chances of recovery with changes in attitude and life style.
Start taking massive doses of vitamin C and other vitamins.
Spend a little time to "smell the roses" as they say.
Learn to enjoy the beauty of the world around you.
Take deep breaths.
Look in the mirror and smile. ( do you know that it is impossible to be sad or depressed while you are smiling? )
Look in the mirror and smile again.
My philosophy of life is simple;
Life is too short to be miserable!
As an example of how this type of thinking can affect your body;
A couple of years ago, I was trying to start a car with a cup full of gas . The car backfired , I jumped, the gas spashed and I went up in flames.
It wasn't life threatening, but I was burned pretty bad on both arms and hands. I recovered and was mostly healed up in about a month instead of the 4 to 6 months the doctors told me.
I attribute the quick healing to the fact that I just made up my mind that I was going to get better as fast as possible. While I was standing there like a crispy critter waiting on the life flight to arrive, I told my mother and sister " well, I am hurt, but let's get on with whatever I have to do to get over it".
One of the things that I have learned over the years is to pay attention to the important stuff and most things are just not that important.
luck and joy,
