I have been contemplating this for one specific reason, whether or not you choose to smoke all day or not is one thing, but when I was a smoker I would have a cigarette in the morning, and as people say, it would cause D. However, I would have 1-2 more and when I would smoke and no BM, I was good to go.Now I go to the bathroom multiple times, and I have no way to "test" if I have emptied my gut like the cigarette did.Unfortunately I quit through Electric Cigarettes as well, and the reason I quit those is that they did not have the same effect as the regular cigarette (hence making me wonder if nicorette would also fail as well).Just my .02
Just staying at my aunt and uncles when I was a kid for the summer made my IBS flare up because they smoked a lot. My aunt didn't believe me, but I felt like ####.

I will give you an answer according to my experience not some stupid answer like "smoking is bad for you" like you're an idiot & don't know that. I wake in unbearable pain every single morning. When I smoke my 1st cigarette when first waking, in order to "get things moving" it makes my pain worse. I've considered not smoking in the morning but I do need it for the constipation but it does make my pain worse. Your experience sounds like it was a good one. If I could find something that would give me relief, like drinking which I don't do, I would stick with it. Anything to get rid of the pain.
I wish you all the best!!!
