ive read on some websites that smoking will cause CHRONS to happen AND MAKE IT WORSE and im assuming that smoking also includes pot.....some websites say that pot is used to help ease the symptoms SO I AM KIND OF CONFUSED...ARE CIGS BAD AND POT OK? PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK

  • I think many doctors say stay away from cigarettes but if it makes you calm down then I say what the heck as for pot is is well noted that it helps calm down your system so you can handle food better . My doctor has told me that even though both really aren't good if you feel that it helps you thru the day then why would he tell me not to do what will help me get thru the day. I have had it for 15 years now . I smooke but not pot but I know many other crohns people and they swear by it.
