HEllo, Simple question, how many of you smoke cigarettes? I am not here to lecture you, cause I do it too. No lectures please, cause I know it it terrible especially for thyroid sufferers. Just curious to know how many of you smoke, thats all. Thanks.

I used to smoke, but I quit a year ago. I had read on about.com what Tree Frog mentioned, so before I quit I got my thryoid levels tested and they were fine. Then shortly after I quit smoking thats when my thryoid and symptoms went haywire, and I knew to get tested for thyroid imbalance. Sure enough my levels were really high. If you do quit make sure to monitor your levels more often.
