I was wondering if anyone else had this same problem that I have. Although my doctor told me that I should quit smoking because of my ibs, it's hard to stop. Sometimes smoking actually triggers bowel spasams. I'm in the process of being diagnosed with chrone's, and I'm really stressed about it, hence, I light up a cigarette. My mom was just recently diagnosed with chrone's and she was told to quit smoking too. Any suggestions for us?

when i was diagnosed with ibs i gave up smoking for 3 months but it didnt stop my symptoms just made the symptoms different (from diarrhoea to constipation). smoking also triggers spasms for me, so i use having a ciggarette in the morning to speed up the inevitable so i can leave the house quicker! sorry, not much help
