    whatever you do....DO NOT breathe in while re-surfacing...lung overexpansion is a *****...only breathe out....and make sure you take your required safety stop at 15 feet (3 meters) if your nitrogen level is too high...you dont wanna risk getting the benz...

    good luck...i miss diving...

    edit: forgot to mention that you should learn how to pressurize your ears...and if you have sinus problems like i do, it can be a bit tough. sometimes its as simple as yawning, and othertimes you have to pinch your nose and blow...you'll get used to it eventually...just remember to keep equalizing as you go down..and before you feel pain...

    Get real training from a certifying agency instructor (PADI, SSI, NAUI or similar)

    And use a spell checker

    Oh god...here we go.

    Dont scuba, go snorkeling. Then, take a deeeep breath, go down. Fast and far. When your ears start to hurt, keep going untill you hear a pop and the pain goes away. Blood and snot should come out of your nose. Your sinus just popped and youll never have sinus problems again....

    Or....just be careful and enjoy it. Take the 15ft stop and for gods sake, if it does hurt, stop! Do not smoke after you scuba either. Unless Im around to laugh at you while you run around with your hair on fire.

    I was teasing, but it was more than two... still teasing.

    My second job is teaching for a local dive shop. Please be safe.

    Find a good local shop and go to class
    Ask to meet the instructors before you pay, chat with some of them. Then decide if it is a good shop for you.

    Get the gear checked out before class. Some bargains are not really what you need.

    I used to have problems with my sinuses clearing during a dive. Now, I take a sudafed a few hours before I head out (I don't get drowsy for some odd reason though).
