Default Smoking when one has a cold

I smoked for a short time in my youth but took it up again a few months ago to relax, and it's worked a treat.
I have a cold at the moment and stopped. Do others do the same or do you find it's ok to smoke when you have a cold?

I tend to go without. Then again I'm a somewhat light on and off smoker. If the nicotine had more sway on me then maybe I would but if I got a cold or something wrong with my throat I find smoking becomes very unpleasent.

When it's just a common cold, I smoke the same as ever. Smoking even seems to help me clean my nose and breath easier

I still smoke when I have a cold/pneumonia/bronchitis. I may not smoke as much because I'm usually spending free time laying on couch or bed and don't have energy to do much of anything even smoke.

I am to much of an addict to not smoke when I am sick. I may cut down a bit, but I still light up. In my nature to smoke, can't help it.

Everyone is different and it depends on the severity of the cold and/or cough.

Some smokers don't change and others have to cut back due to the severity of it and only you will know the answer to that once you have one and your system will let you know (thumbs up or thumbs down).

I began to smoke newports when I had bronchitis..then walking pneumonia... menthol smoke was easier to inhale deeply...and I certainly was not going to let such temporary ailments get in the way of smoking! So if you have bronchitis or pneumonia, menthols are easier to get into the lungs...and isn't that the whole point?!

Kool, the first major menthol brand, was originally marketed for when you have a cold. And don't forget the asthma cigarettes of the Victorian Age, of which menthol was one of the ingredients, although the main "active" ingredient was Datura stramonium (thorn-apple).

But I think you should draw the line when it comes to pneumonia! Though I have to admit I didn't draw the line either: when I was 19 and away at college, I had walking pneumonia for five weeks, was guzzling down cough syrup, went to all my classes and did all my school work, and continued smoking every day. My "excuse" could be that I was young and thought myself indestructible.

My rule of thumb is if the nasal congestion renders me unable to breathe through the nose, then I can't smoke. It is possible to be so sick that you lose the desire to smoke. In February 2007 I had viral tonsillitis for three weeks, and didn't smoke at all. When I recovered I resumed smoking, ignoring my Dad's suggestion that I should quit permanently.
