00:01:11.343. My record used to be almost a minute and a half.

My mind does not simply allow me to hold my breath, as it gives a chance of death.

Actually, I'm too scared to hold my breath for too long. Unless I'm under water and have to swim 30 meters whilst not surfacing, I'm not going to risk anything.

You can't harm yourself by holding your breath. Your body will force inhalation and/or pass out to reduce need for oxygen to the brain. Any mental block to holding your breath is psychological--it's an ability innate to all humans. Fear of it is one thing, but your body will 'allow' you to hold it until you begin to auto-respirate (before or after passing out). The only way this can translate to harm is if you're asphyxiating yourself with an external method, like a tie or a rope or some shit. Unfortunately, that's not a sign that your body is ultra-tuned for survival. It's a sign that your blood is not oxygenating properly. Obesity, high cholesterol, asthma, and apnea are common causes.

Knowledge bomb dropped. :)
