In brief: Smoking and GERD

Yes, smoking is associated with gerd and/or worsening gerd symptoms.
It is best to avoid any triggers for gerd, such as smoking, spicy or acidic foods, caffeine and chocolate are common triggers. Your best bet is to stop smoking.

In brief: Cranks the acid tap

Agree with dr p. Smoking is like a wrench that cranks the acid faucet wide open.
Your tap's running. Hopefully this will help you decide to make good changes for your health.
