    When you smoke, the poisons from the tar in your cigarettes enter your blood. These poisons in your blood then:

    Make your blood thicker, and increase chances of clot formation

    Increase your blood pressure and heart rate, making your heart work harder than normal

    Narrow your arteries, reducing the amount of oxygen rich blood circulating to your organs.

    Together, these changes to your body when you smoke increase the chance of your arteries narrowing and clots forming, which can cause a heart attack or stroke.

    Yes. The smoke you inhale contain;

    Acetone—found in nail polish remover

    Acetic acid—an ingredient in hair dye

    Ammonia—a common household cleaner

    Arsenic—used in rat poison

    Benzene—found in rubber cement and gasoline

    Butane—used in lighter fluid

    Cadmium—active component in battery acid

    Carbon monoxide—released in car exhaust fumes

    Formaldehyde—embalming fluid

    Hexamine—found in barbecue lighter fluid

    Lead—used in batteries

    Naphthalene—an ingredient in mothballs

    Methanol—a main component in rocket fuel

    Nicotine—used as an insecticide

    Tar—material for paving roads

    Toluene—used to manufacture paint

    Plus cigs damage your lungs causing you to cough up phlegm which may tear out your stitches. (Very painful!) All of these will affect your stitches keeping them constantly infected. It would be best to stop smoking until you heal.

    Yup. Smoke from anything being burned and sucked in through your mouth is full of nasty chemicals that will inhibit proper healing. You are also working under a poisoned and diminished oxygen capacity.

    You are...OF COURSE...going to IGNORE this statement. WHY THE F#CK did you even BOTHER to ask?...you F#CKING ADDICT!

    Stop your smoking you dimwitted TWAT!
