    I don't get colds very often, but I do have a chronic condition that has me seeing a cadre of specialists on a regular basis. It's been quiet for a long time but is flaring up now, so I've been feeling pretty crappy for the past few weeks. :( And how do periodic visits to a chiropractor fit into your scheme of things?

    Is this a general interest thing or do you have an ulterior motive for gathering this data?

    You missed the 20-30 option in your poll, where I belong.

    On topic, I frequently sport, I haven't been seriously sick in my entire life, I never get the flu or anything (except a little hayfever in august). So I'm damn healthy.

    As alcahol I mostly drink wine which is healthy too so that shouldn't be a problem either.

    Hey, what about people ages 21-29? Oh well, I am male, in the above age group.

    I don't smoke and never have

    I drink very rarely i.e. mostly toasts at weddings etc.

    I don't and never have used drugs

    I exercise regularly but don't play sports.

    I eat fresh fruit but not nearly as much as I should. I do eat lots of vegetables.

    I normally get sick once or twice a year but I usually just get the sniffles and it is never bad enough to cause me to miss work. I have never broken a bone or suffered anything worse then a minor strain.

    I can't quite compete with Morgoth, I have seen my doctor once in the last five years.

    I hope you weren't going to use this data on a project or anything, as your age snafu screws the integrity of your results.

    I don't drink or smoke, but my eating habits and lazy nature inhibits my health.

    I have a couple of physical disabilities, so I can't do sport.

    I don't smoke or do drugs

    I'll have the odd drink my grandparents offer, though one time they were trying to get me drunk, lol :thumb:

    Because of my disabilities I am always at the hospital because of broken bones or dislocated joints

    I eat enough fruit and veg, my mother is vegetarian, so I don't get much choice :p

    Sometimes I feel ill even when I am not, because of a rather strange reason. I won't bore you with details :p

    Age: 20 (sometimes 2000)

    Length 195 cm/6'5'' with 72kg/171 lbs weight.

    Constitution 12. Apart from having asthma (400 metre run is all you'd get from me) and some backbone thingy that bars me from lifting, I just hate PE, sport (swordplay excepted), heartily despise any team game, have a leave from all that. What's fun is that I can be on heavy duty run (like mountains, constant marching some route in heat or struggling with bureaucracy all over the city) without food, drink or rest for whole 16 hour day, or sword-fight some 8 hours or dancing and drinking whole fortnight sleeping 20 hours whole time. All that with jocks gazing jaw-dropped or begging for a break. I'm not seeing the doctor because my uni hates sick leaves.
    Military cathegory: A aka bull.

    Cigs: I used to smoke a few cigs a year when I was down or there wasn't enough alcohol to fly ;) I think I'm immune now.

    Alcohol: Have some?

    Drugs: Suck. If you include caffeine though - yes, permanently incaffeinated.

    Vegetables, fruits: whatever in sight (should really eat more fruits though). But I love unhealthy food nearly as much as drinking a litre/2 pints of booze or being on the computer 16/24 or 40 or having a dozen of coffees :shake: .

    Hours of Sports a week: Well I don't really keep count but since I play Baseball and work out I'd number it around 7 to 9 hours a week.
    Smoking: I don't. I don't think I'll ever try either.
    Drinking: I don't. I'm under-age and it's against my religion.
    Drugs: No.
    Fruit, Vegetables: I do eat a lot of vegetables (in salads) but I rarely ever eat fruits even though I should.
    Resilience, endurance, etc.: I'm pretty sturdy but I tend to pull my muscles a lot making the stretch at firstbase.

    Sport: 0. Try to get some sportings done soon with my friends. Probably indoor-soccer or squash.

    Smoke: Like a candle. Only when I go out...

    Drink: About 6 glasses of beer at thursdays, 4 at fridays and 14 at saturdays. A special beer at sunday afternoon. About 25-30 beers a week. That's about 6 to 8 liters. And I drink about 1 glass of Jack in a week, for the special Lounging-moments.

    Drugs: I'm Dutch, but honestly, I never tried some. I want to keep it that way.

    Vegetables: Plenty
    Fruit: Hardly any, except for the fruitsalads my mom makes at sundays.

    Visits Doctor: once/3 years. For my ears. Allmost never ill and use medicines as few as possible (Never, that is).
    Break something? Only thing I have broken once is my heart. I am quite slim and I think I will quite easily break something as well, but I watch my step to prevent a good whack on side of the head.

    What type of sport? There's a clear difference to your health wether you do something that enhances condition (like swimming, jogging, playing football for example, etc) or just go to gym to increase your strength and bodymass. I do the latter, 3 times a week, which amounts to about 5 hours. In addition I jog 2 times a week, 1 hour per time.

    I don't eat fruits, I eat sallad and other green stuff 2/3:rds of the time I eat lunch. I also take multivitamin pills every now and then.

    Never even thought about using drugs, I'm not *that* dumb afterall.

    Never smoked, the smell is bad so the taste must be as well. Besides my mother used to smoke a lot back when I lived with her, so I've developed sort of an allergy towards cigarette smoke.

    I've drank alcohol 2 times in my life. Considering my age and considering the psychological purpose of the first time, that's close to nothing. So I answered never to this as well, as I certainly don't drink "rarely" (which implies regularly, even if not very often).

    My immunesystem is probably inherited from my parents. I got all the casual child-diseases when I was a kid, but after that there're but a few times I've gotten sick in my life. Usually I get a flu or something every 3 years, which lasts for a couple of days. Never broken any bones, but I've managed to seriously strain my ankles twice now in the last 2 years (seriously meaning that it took months to recover enough before I could even walk with a fairly confident feeling).

    For the age I answered 30-40, but that was just because of the lack of 20-30 option.
