Could i smoke after 1 month ?



Recommended Posts

I think you are insane! I quit for about 3 weeks before and 2 weeks after and this idiot started again! Sure you can smoke but why? I regret ever starting again, You have made the decision to get healthy and you want to kill yourself with the cigarettes? Makes no sense to me at all
Get a dog or play a game or get meds for your anxiety - But smoking would be the last decsion and this is coming from someone who F@#cked up big time and started again
I really apperciate it , that you care about me And what you said was really impressive , i decided to dont smoke again but im sooo upset , food and cigarette was only things that made me happy and now i dont know to what should i do what should i do when i want to give myself a prize

Yes please do not start back up. I was a smoker too, I quit just 1 month ago so I could move forward and get my surgery date (which is 4/7/20) and I have no desire to go back. Get one of those app's that tracks how much money you have saved and how many cigarettes you HAVEN'T smoked it really helps me to see those numbers. My mother died from lung cancer and it's not a nice way to go. I know I would think the same thing it helps with my anxiety...but no it does not. Like someone said to me, your going though this process to better yourself and your heath. Why would you start doing something like that again? Smoking.
You can do this we can be buds lol we both stopped around the same time. 🙂

Hi every one !

I used to smoke befor surgery , but i quit 6 weeks befor surgery and im now 3 weeks post op .

I really want to smoke again beacuse i think smoking reduces my anxiety .

Does smoking would be harmful after one 1 month of surgery ( i mean things that are related to the surgery not the common effects of smokin cigarette )

Does anyone smoke after surgery ?

First of all smoking will kill you and is horrible for you but that aside, I know at least the program I did- they refuse to do the surgery on smokers and you are told you can never smoke again. And since you already got over the hard part and quit why pick up the bad habit again. You are doing so well. Stay the course and stay off the Cigs. You can do this.

I really have sympathy for you: this kind of addiction can't be beaten just by motivational platitudes.

Initially giving up smoking is not the hard part - you have to decide to give up every day for years and years - that's the hard part. Finding alternative activities is helpful, but some day you will fall down and smoke again. Having a plan for when you fall off the wagon is the key. I suppose some people could say that that is just planning for failure, but I disagree. It's just planning for the day that your human weaknesses get the better of you. Everyone here has those days. You're giving up two addictions at once and that's harder than giving up one(!)

Having re-read this, I realise that I sound quite strident. I don't mean to be disrespectful of anyone who has given helpful or genuinely-meant advice.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
