i quit smoking, got my first super bad flare.
then i flared again in may and started having about
1-4 cigarettes a day and i went back into remission.
then in oct, my grandma died, stress caused another bad flare, which im in right now and im smoking again 1-4 cigs a day.
and it is helping id say.
i think it is. and that is all that matters right. i seem to be getting better.
and if i go a day or 2 without cigs, it seems to get worse.
so i dont know.. im gonna keep going with my few a day and see what happens.
