What kind of surgery: Generally "social" use of marijuana is not going to cause any difficulties. Heavy marijuana smokers can get lung problems just as cigarette smokers do, and if you are having general anesthesia, that might make a difference. It should not cause any problems in general with either surgery or anesthesia in lower-dose smokers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again had 1 anxiety attack but i can't smoke no more will the anxiety go away ?
Yes: The effects of smoking marijuana generally last just a few hours- the effects will wane hour by hour and within 6-8 hours you will likely be feeling no effect. However, it may feel like a much longer time if you are anxious. If your anxiety persists beyond this it is not directly caused by the marijuana. Taking magnesium glycinate or citrate & drinking tulsi tea should help calm you. See comment:. ...Read more
Gave up smoking started e cigarette 3 weeks ago now experiencing nose bleeds every 2-3 days that last about 3-5 minutes healthy before quitting?
Quit e cigs: I suspect the nose bleeds are the result of starting smoking e- cigarettes and not the result of quitting smoking, that' s why I would recommend first to quit smoking altogether. In case your nosebleeds continue talk to your doc. I suspect it is only a coincidence as far as timing and not due to quitting smoking. ...Read more

Cold turkey.: As far as quitting without any nicotine replacement, the cold turkey method is great. But plan it ahead of time.

Good luck!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've smoked pot for 3 weeks daily&i'm having breast lift & nose surgery. How long should I stop before surgery&after to start back? Dont smoke cigs!
Got it backwards : Nicotine (nicotinic) receprors are so named because they have an affinity for bonding with nicotine. That's where nicotine exerts its effects. They were there before you started using nicotine, and will be there after you stop. Think of any other receptor site that has an affinity for a specific biochemical (serotonin, dopamine, endorphin, acetylcholine, gaba, etc). ...Read more
Quit smoking for 5 days, couldn't have bowel movement. Slipped and smoked, movement within 2 hours. Quit again, completely constipated again. Why?
Withdrawal symptom: Nicotine has a stimulating effect on intestinal transit. Constipation is a common during nicotine withdrawal. This symptom will gradually decline during the first 1-2 months of quitting. Meanwhile, you should also make sure that you have an adequate intake of fluids, (1 1/2 liters/day). You may need fiber based laxative. Please keep trying. Smoking will kill you, constipation won't. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have quit smoking for two weeks now after smoking 2-3 packs per week for 10 yrs. No withdrawl signs. Is this normal?
You're normal: Withdrawal from nicotine in tobacco typically takes from 2 to 4 weeks or longer, but varies a lot from person to person. There are physical parts -- dependence to nicotine, but also psychological (i want it now, my brain says), and social too (l want to smoke with friends). It's totally ok you don't have withdrawal. Lucky you! keep going! stay tobacco free :-). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
