I've always heard that smoking was really bad for Crohns. Made it worse. I quit smoking almost 3 years ago (before I was dx'd) Last August was dx'd during a resection. My daughter started smoking (without my knowledge) when she was 18 and has been in remission since. She has quit while pregnant and so far she hasn't picked it back up after her third child. Seems we are the exception to the rule.
