Do you have to use air conditioning or can you survive without it?

I am wondering if we can survive without air conditioning. Many of us have gotten so use to the luxuries of life that they become a necessity I am using fans right now. Do you think it's possible to go without air conditioning? Joy

I'm sure its possible. I know there are people living in the world in huts without electricity. They seem to do ok. I was pretty poor for a while and living with friends in a mobile home that was old and had no air conditioning. We were miserable! It was sticky and warm and gross. I took a lot of cold showers, drank a lot of water and often thought I was going to pass out from heat stroke. It gets crazy hot around here in summer. If I had to, I'd survive without the air conditioning, but I don't want to! As is where I live now, we can't run it often because it costs too much. But you can be sure when it's over a 100F out I'll be running some AC at some point and eagerly waiting for winter to come back. I prefer cold weather as you can always wear jackets and fuzzy blankets to keep warm. But in the heat, you can only do so much to stay cool.
