    ^ 55 years is a hell of a habit, good luck in staying off them. Cigs are such an insidious addiction, it's so easy and casual.

    Re: "bleeding" from the feet.

    If it only happens when you don't practice your yoga beforehand, then energy leakage out of the bottom of the feet sounds like the most likely (metaphysical) explanation.
