    Depends......if someone is talking and my sneeze would interrupt, yes, I will stifle it.  If though, I am just walking or no one is directly around, I usually just cover my mouth and let it out! (Careful not to let anything else out:)

    If I try to stifle a sneeze it usually comes out as a snort which is far more embarrassing than a sneeze. I always sneeze into the sleeve on my shoulder anyway so that muffles it quite a bit and prevents germs.

    I know it isn't healthy, but yes, I do. Every single time.

    suppressing any natural flow is injurious to health, but in public it is equally an infringement to etequetts & yes bound to do so... however in excercising the same, condition becomes even more wacky sometimes with giggles & laughters around..!

    I try if I can. 
    Nothing worse than the germ spattering mucous of an uninhibited a - chew!
    Keep the germs IN!!!!  Even if I have to soak my hand with sneeze stuff, to keep the sneeze towards me, anything!
    Better into a handkerchief though!
