4FUN: How long can you hold your breath?

I just tried this also. I can hold my breath for just under a minute also. I smoke like a freight train and have done so for years. That could be a very good reason why I could not hold it longer than that. But what amazes me, is, when we open our swimming pool for the summer, my husband, daughter and I compete with who can stay under the water the longest and I can stay under water alot longer holding my breath than what I can when I am out of the water. It doesn't make much sense to me. I guess it is because I am under the water and I have to hold my breath or suck up water. When I am out of the water, I can release and breathe air any time I want without being hurt by doing so, is all that I can come up with. Plus I am not in any kind of competition, LOL.
