Loc: Lake Linden, Mich in the U.P. IBS-C

Hi Polly, That's a very good question! I don't smoke cig's,
but I have read about a large amount of anecdotal evidence
that smoking or chewing the nic gum has helped people's IBS,
even to the point where symptoms vanish. Of course the med
community doesn't have a clue as to why. Nic does supposedly
stimulate bowel contractions, which would point to it help-
ing C. You'll notice that on airplane flights that they
warn you about smoking in the bathroom because they know
people will smoke when they go to poop.
I wouldn't go back to smoking if I were you, but I might
try the gum occasionally. -Bob
