Hahaha..seriously, if I am in a room where it's full of smokers, you'll either see me run to the nearest clinic, or see me get rushed to an emergency room. I can't stand smoke. It irritates my sinus. If it's just 3-4 persons in an open space, it's okay. Which is why clubbing is not my idea of fun.  ;D ;D ;D

if it's raining and everyone shelter under the bus stop, and if someone smokes among the crowd there, normally i'll prefer to not join them, thus standing under the rain, have the smell :P

this one u have to use your upper body strength do a flip turn. upon reaching the end, about 1m or less, use your waist and upperbody and macam.. look and move down and your whole lower body and leg will follow... thus, a flip turn is occuring. while doing that turn, make sure u exhale, otherwise, air akan masuk hidung ... kekee, after turning, use your leg and tekan against the wall and u're off to go.... kekeke.. not sure whether u understand what i'm trying to say or not :P ... kekeke... one day can show u during pool session :)

Smoking is bad for health - YES but if you're a smoker and you can't smoke because of some dive regulations - that is worse...I don't want to dive with someone with withdrawal symtoms...! ;D

Im a smoker myself and i see lots of DM's and Instructors who are smokers as well. As we all know smoking is bad for health and its a bit difficult to cut the habit, altho its just mind over matter. To answer ur queries SKK and not to scare others, smoking raises carbon monoxide levels in the blood 3 to 12 times which impairs O2 transport and CO2 elimination which will increase blood pressure and heart rate. Of which is not good when doing any physical actitivies such as diving. Im not a doctor but trying to recall what ive learnt in my DM course. Just my RM0.01 opinion ;)

i tried to quit 4years back..... after 2 and half months, i was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with high fever (the dr said, might be suspected dengue case)... after 5 days sleeping in the wad, daily they took my blood for lab test and found out that nothing wrong... and before discharged, the dr was doing a short conversation with me, i told him that i quit smoking directly... And guess what the dr said it's not the way to quit, need to reduce one by one.... but i was too stupid to quit in fast.... so caused the admisssion....errr.. even i am still smoking now, but seriously i am looking foir a way to quit the habbit... even vali "stem: when u blow yr smelly smokes out....sometimes... hahaha

I believe there are instructors who do not smoke. As a role model instructors should not smoke when conducting their classes. They can smoke during the breaks, not in the classroom preferably. It's polite too!! I've seen dive boats with a "No Smoking" sign displayed. It would be appropriate if instructors and divemasters observe this sign and refrain from smoking in the boat when taking out divers to dive. We cannot stop people from smoking but we have to recognise there are people who don't smoke prefers not to be at the recieving end. :)

I was with my friends diving last time, and a few non smokers friend really used up their air really fast compared to us.  Thus my friends made a new "theory"..smoking is good la actually la, cuz the tars block up ur lung and less oxygen goes in, while those non smokers have good lungs, so need more oxygen thats y finish air faster... ;D

er... using up air fast or not... doesnt depends whether u smoke or not... i have seen a mat salleh girl.. that can share her tank wif her hubby and yet she can tahan for 45 minutes dives with around 100 bar left.... so it depends on how u breathe... anyhw smoking pre is not good to health according to book..
