so i started having major digestive problems ten years ago so i was round 20 yrs old then..i did not smoke at all!! just woke up one morning and my problems began..however years later i started to smoke due to stress among other things..i have always been a healthy person i have the best diet you can have i exercise a ton and i am working with a really great doctor that has me set up with a really good health plan..however i am now wanting to give up the smoking but afraid it will make me become more constipated..that is my major issue is i can't go without taking laxatives! ive heard quitting smoking makes this worse but at the same time i don't want to be hurting my body in other ways esp since i do everything else right as far as being healthy!! but just afraid of quitting cause i am miserable if i can't use the restroom!! any advice?!!!!
