i started flaring again at the end of may due to stress and so i started smoking 1-3 cigs a day and i think it helped cuz my flare started to go away and was pretty much gone by end of sept until i had to go home for family emergency. my gram passed away and now im flaring again.. so im smoking again.. 1-4 cigs a day.
my doc told me it would help and it seems to be.
i will try anything really.
so much pain and when i have a cig it usually relaxes my belly.
even though i have to usually run to the can right after.
