    I'm averaging about 3-4 times a year, hoping to get that number down through better sleep and ... green tea. :coolugh:

    1 - 2 at most. Already had some bronchitis. I normally have sinus issues all winter but since starting working out in march i've been good to go.

    I have terribly allergies and have athsma and my parent smoke in the house. The smoke affects my allergies and athsma so basically I live with a cold (stuffy nose, dry mouth, crap in lungs/throat) about 360 days a year. It sucks, which is why I cannot wait to move out. I am hoping to God that moving out and getting away from the pets and smoke will make me much healthier.

    I live with a cold 24/7 basically... And when I do contract a real cold ITS BAD. I dont just get a regular cold, its usually a sinus infection on bronchitus (which happens about 4-6 times a year and lasts for upto a month or so)

    Dude, tell your parents to knock that off, it's not healthy at all, not to mention that stepping outside isn't a huge deal

    At a minimum i would push for a few air purifiers around the house

    jesus that's horrible that your parents surround you in that shit.

    my dad smokes, but it doesn't affect me.
    i haven't gotten sick in over 2 years..and i'm around sick people constantly
