What a great time to stop smoking.
You are 19 you can do it. Smoking causes so many problems, why start again?

In brief: Forever

Forever is best, but if that is not doable, then at least 3 - 5 days to help allow healing and reduce the chances of a dry socket.

In brief: 3/4 days min.

At least three to four days to give the socket a chance to heal, as negative pressure, heat and smoke can take the blood clote out or cause an infection called dry socket, which is very painfull and needs to be treated by your dentist.
