I have not been advised to give up smoking but have read enough to know that it can cause complications with Ulcers and the obvs none related health issues. I am on day one with a patch, ive never smoked alot but im scared ill find it all to much with quitting sugar, alcohol going low carb etc. Anyone else in similar situation?

I decided to quit when I started my journey for wls and I am officially on day 9 going cold turkey. If you need someone to talk to I am here. I smoked almost 2 packs a day for 15+ years. If I didnt quit cold I felt like I wasn't going to at all. Its just one step of many towards a healthy life change.

As a former smoker who smoked over 2 packs a day for years....you will never stop smoking until you find a reason to not smoke that is greater than your reason to smoke...for me I like money, and at $5 a pack for smokes I was spending a quarter per cigarette, so I went to the bank got a roll of quarters then stopped at convenience store at got a pack of cigarettes...every time I lit a cigarette I threw a quarter away...that was the last pack of smokes I ever bought.

Im going cold turkey from today as i didnt realise nicotine replacements are also a no no! But yesterday was my first day without one cigarette in a long time.

I smoked 2 packs a day for 13 years. I quit 21 years ago. Best thing I ever did. I went cold turkey. It was hard, but it gets easier with time and I don't miss smoking at all now.
Smoking really interferes with healing so it's not good with the surgery.
