it seems quite a common thread that after quitting, ibs symptoms flare up,i was wondering who else has had it? how do they control it? how long since they quit? etc
hmmm I was seriously thinking about giving up smoking but if what you say is true, does it mean I will be worse than I am now
( i don't think i could handle being worse, i'm struggling as it is )

well i wouldnt worry about it getting worse then,in fact it smoking can irritate the gut,obviously everyone is different,for me,it staeted it,seems you have nothing to lose in that sense anyway.

Is it like most things it get worses before it gets better.Like the gut is healing itself?
perhaps,i think (for me) that after 20 years of a stimulant like nicotine in my system every hour that its no suprise that it affects everything when you stop (i did it cold turkey).it as been over a year for me though and the ibs is still going strong,i still do not regret quitting though,it causes a massive stress to quit an addiction but i think smoking causes more stress than it cures.
