Hi I'm a smoker too
I was Dx in Jan this year Doc's told me I must quit said it would reduce flares and inflamation and would generally help my CD
I've tried everything except hypnosis. When I stress I smoke more and more then I notice the D's so I get a reality check so of
I was on Chantix in the lead up to my surgery all got from it was a head ache, I think the patches work better for me until the people around me light up
I do think if your not really ready to quit you wont be able too, you really need to fully understand and believe in the reasons you need to quit.
Smoking does worry me with my CD but more so now as I'm Pregnant also, I decied cutting back then trying the patches might be best a year ago I was smoking 25-30, 4mg cigs now I smoke about 20 2mg cigs and hope by next week I'll be ready for the patches again.
