The only thing I've heard is that the onset of symptoms in smokers may be delayed.

I'm a smoker :ph34r: My biggest problem was when they changed the glue they used in making them. All of a sudden my lips started to blister. You would have thought that would have got me to quit but I found a brand that didn't do that. Another issue is that some companies will put gluten containing ingredients in the ciggarettes themselves. I believe this is because they are aware of the addictive nature of gluten and increases the chance of you staying with their brand once hooked. I have 'quit' quite a few times and Walmart's nicotine patch is gluten-free. Many of the others have gluten in the glue, I would get DH sores from the patches. For myself I think maybe it's time to try again.

Really- is this DEFINITELY true? If so, what brands use gluten?

I'm a smoker and all I can say is that since I have celiac disease my immune system is WAAY low and I have bronchitis at least 3 times a year. I also have scarring on my lungs from who knows where. I know I should quit, but when you have to give up just about everything you like, you get kind of bitter about it.

Tobacco is a nightshade and some Celiacs are sensitive to nightshades... I smoke and have Celiac... not a good idea to smoke anyway tho... wish I could quit.

Don't really know about the healing process with a smoker vs non-smoker, you might want to ask your doctor.

No tobacco on the compound, ladies, it makes the geese nervous! ;)

Seriously y'all, I know it's hard, but you've got to quit! I know you can do it!!! :)

I only smoked for like, a year, so I didn't have the longstanding addiction to deal with. I did watch my mom quit though after smoking since she was a teenager! Ironically, she's now allergic to cigarette smoke.

Ok, I say people can smoke in the smoking area in R-ville. It's not so easy to quit. I quit almost six months ago and it has not been easy at all. I will say that the psychological part is the hardest for me. I used the patch for about 2 months and then weaned myself off from there.

If anyone wants to talk about it just email me. It's a struggle, and not really feeling like it has been worth it but I know that day will come. I just got so sick of every time I got a cold it went to my lungs. There are a few things I tell myself:

What would I do if I knew the next one I picked up was the one that gave me lung cancer

I tell myself not to make it romantic

I tell myself having one really won't make the situation any better

I can't have one because for me they travel in packs

The other thing that helped initally was that I didn't carry any money with me so I would have to actually write a check and that would require some thought

I don't know there is no easy way, I am just trying to stay away from them. I haven't really exposed myself to them because the desire is way too strong

Really CC you thought it would get you kicked out? Never

:D Hi everyone! Storm's over so I thought I'd check back here -can't sleep-just had a smoke out on the wet patio. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!! I thought I was the only one in R'ville!!! So, is this the smoking section? I quit/started up/quit/started up at least 3 times since March. I am like ravenwoodglass-I changed brands because of lip blisters. I think it was in the "Dangerous Grains" book that I read that it is very hard for a celiac to quit smoking. I forget the exact reason given. Will look that up. Also, I really, really need the nicotine after a bad bout of D. It has a relaxing effect on my intestines. Maybe I am just weird, but I have noticed this for years. My neighbors all quit, and I was going to quit with them, but I backslid again. Geez, they are all substituting with foods and snacks and using the patch. I cannot handle that patch. It gives me nightmares and makes me jittery. (excuses, excuses, I know, I know) I guess I really like it too much. Please don't hate me. :blink:

I heard that too

And I have just realised I gave up smoking 16 years ago, maybe i should not have, cause that would be about the time I started getting symptoms

Silly me

Can it all be reversed if i start smoking again?

Wow everybody--I think after reading this thread that there may be more smokers in Rachelville than non smokers! :D No one will be kicked out of R'ville for smoking--the Vice Pres. has spoken! :P

I smoked for 8 years, up until I got pregnant with my first child. I was SO nauseous that I literally couldn't smoke (or eat, for that matter). I just never started again after he was born, although the cravings lasted for a long time--actually, after all these years, after a nice meal, I still remember how much I enjoyed a cigarette :ph34r:

This thread is making me want to smoke. :lol: ... :( ...:lol:

There is something wonderful about smoking with others, has anyone else noticed the way people will inhale at the same time?

I think it is a pity that we have taken what was once a ceremony and turned it into a "bad habit". I think the First Nations people had it right. Smoking really should be something we do together, therefore I would never wander out by myself to the patio to......

I grew up in a smoking home, and it totally screwed up my sinuses. I had huge adenoids that never went down and too-small sinuses that had to be widened, the ENT said that it was a result of all the smoke...

I think my mom quit soon after surgery. :blink:

I know that my Celiac Symptoms didn't get really bad until after I quit smoking. I started again right around diagnosis, and have found that it really does settle my stomach when I'm not feeling well. I know its a bad thing, but even my doctor isn't that stressed about it right now. I know that I will definitly quit when I decide to have kids though. My new BF is a non-smoker too, so who knows, I might quit sooner than that.

    • The thing is.  They didn't have to say anything about gluten free food.  They didn't have to put that mean-spirited dig in there at all.  They could have just showed the awesome thing for serving food.  People with food sensitivities would have just substituted gluten-free or peanut free food in their minds.  Just like anyone would have said - I hate cucumbers - so my party tray won't have that on it.
    • Thank you so much! So is the positive IgG pretty indicative of celiac (could it be anything else)? I havent read any of those posts on diet, so I’ll have to start. Honestly, I’m happy to start gluten free. At the start of this, I was so bummed out that I’d have to give up foods. But confirming that it is gluten making me sick, I don’t want to eat it anymore. Kind of nice I got a “farewell to gluten” tour but so happy it’s over. Unfortunately, there is only one office here in Asheville, NC and it’s renowned for being awful (just look at the reviews!!) I’m on Nashville a lot for work, so maybe I can look for a good doctor there instead. 
    • So PC is not celiac pc? I'm sure fictitious  "Tina" in the ad will discard her "immature anti celiac ad friends" like used napkins and find new friends that are less grossed out by her autoimmune disease.  Or perhaps fictitious "Tina " will patiently educate the baffon friends in the ad. Tina's choice. Another company made a bad choice to join the gluten dude list of celiac bashing in the public media  Hey PC want to attempt to get out of dog house ? contact me for where to send my check For your next marketing idea/ script for your commercial  Your next commercial show two tables one designated gluten-free and one non gluten-free show 2 different color coded themes one gluten-free and non gluten-free example red for gluten-free and black non gluten-free ( whatever game day team colors- catch my drift) showing gluten-free cake served on red plate and non gluten-free cake on other table on black plate. Yo support celiac awareness and safety. this marketing tip per AWOL  contact me for my royalty checks  👍  
    • .....damn I thought I had run into stupid doctors on my own, yours flip flop more then a ADHD kid and I should know that one. Yep celiac and gluten-free for life....get copies of all your POSITIVE test and compile them in a folder, write the others off as doctor stupid was tripping on acid. Get copies of all your medical records and personally take them to a new doctor....might want to look through them first and make sure the idiot did not put anything in there wrong. Well if you can anyway......
      Congrats on the diagnosis and sorry you found one of the idiots, you get those a lot in life just sucks when it is someone in charge of your well-being and health like that. I take it you have already been through the newbie 101 thread and gone to a whole foods diet to boost up the healing, cleaned out the kitchen and set for the haul.  
    • Also I should add that in the 12 weeks, my vitamin d plummeted and now am deficient. Would you guys accept a celiac diagnosis (I am pretty confident that I have it- I was sad before the challenge that I couldn’t eat gluten anymore. Now after the challenge i am EXCITED to never eat it again as I feel like such crap now) or can a positive diamodated Gliadin  IgG indicate anything else? Or is it specific to celiac? I am happy to get a diagnosis,  but want to make sure it’s the right one. I wish I trusted my doc more (example- 3 days ago they called and said congrats, no celiac, u can eat gluten!! The doc signed off on it. But I looked at my results and pointed out that the deamidated IgG levels were not reported yet. The doc said whoops my bad. The next day they came back positive and I got another call & they said, nevermind, no gluten, you’re positive! They are idiots).
