It is a different culture

It is. And people saying "just have a coke" don't really understand. It's like going to a waterpark and someone telling you to just stand by the side wearing a ball gown and watch the fun, it's just as good.

I’m down with that but wouldn’t that be empty calories too? I say hit the pen. Just my opinion 😂

Consuming 5-10 calories and a couple grams of sugar (to me) far outweighs the tertiary effects of inhaling any chemical substance into your lungs. All of my surgeons and doctors support an edible but do not support or condone smoking of any kind.

If you're okay with that risk, then by all means, toke away!

Not sure if this is a funny question or not, but as you can see from the article there are several areas of health that smoking can effect.

Personally, I don't enjoy coughing, upper respiratory infections, shortness of breath in any form, etc.

Some people don't find drinking "fun." It's just the way it is. Not everyone has to drink in order to have fun. But I get it also that some can't enjoy life or have "fun" without being inebriated.

Woah there! I hate to channel our not long-departed friend but this is an Americanism and quite judgemental to say the least. I prefaced my previous post by saying some people don't understand and that's you.

The "pen" isn't smoking and nothing mentioned in that article apply to vaping.

hey listen, I'm not the researcher here. I'm only relaying my experience. Partake at your own risk.

...better yet, report back in 20 years after you have adequate scientific knowledge on the harmful effects of vaping. One thing is for certain, there is no health benefit for it whatsoever.

First of all this is a forum. I have no friends here, lol. I don't use that word loosely.

I said I understand. I explained it in my previous post. I'm not sure what's difficult to understand about this.

I don't care what nationality or culture I was, even if I wasn't American, I would have the same stance. It has nothing to do with where I live. Lol @ judgemental. Okayyy.

So yeah, I understand perfectly well.

No, I mean the research you quoted relates to smoking not vaping. You can't get lung cancer from vaping.

That's my opinion. I'm allowed to have opinions, lol. Just as you are.

I never asked for help. Did I?

No idea what this means. You're trying to scare people without evidence.

You're allowed to have judgemental opinions, I'm allowed to have opinions on your opinions and so your circular logic progresses, irrelevant to the point though it may be.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
