I've seen a few mentions online of smokers experiencing more back pain, as well as faster disc degeneration. Like most smokers, I have tried to quit many times.
Patches, pills, gum, hypnosis, acupuncture.. I've tried pretty much everything. But I had a thought.. If there's a real chance my pain will be less if I don't smoke.. That may be enough motivation for me to kick the habit for good.
Has anyone quit smoking and found that their pain was less intense?
