In brief: NO
If i told you "no, " does mean that you (or your spouse) will stop smoking? Do yourself and you children a huge favor - stop smoking!

Smoking, aside from the long-term negative effects, also affects healing. I know surgeons who have stopped doing elective surgery on patients until they are smoke free for 4 to 6 weeks. We have many aids to help you quit. The biggest aid is wanting to quit. Even cutting down helps. Good luck

In brief: Yes
But only if you are so addicted to tobacco that you don't care how much it hurts.
It will make the tonsillitis feel worse, cause more pain, and probably take longer to clear. You are still very young, but you are going to find out that you are not immortal, and that tobacco is hurting you. Quitting is usually easier during a respiratory infection - please try to quit, and get some help.
