    Are smoking and alcohol, two harmful habits for MS and increases the attack, their types and intensity?! 
  • livinglifejoy
    I've heard that smoking can increase MS issues for sure. Alcohol, I believe, is fine in moderation (though double check with any medications you are on), but may increase some of your symptoms temporarily (i.e. balance issues, frequent bathroom use, etc).

    If you have MS must educate ur self. MS is liken to a snowflake no to are the same. Educating ur self is the best.

    I read that there are seven thousand chemicals in every cigarette. I didnt even know there were seven thousand chemicals, gggle. 

    I smoked fpr 44 years so I am not a born again non smoker. I always think we smokers are replaying the childhood stories of the fire breathing dragons, though my excuse was partly for defense living in NYC I always had a lit cigarette walking at home from the subway and though about burnig the 'bad guys' with a butt.

    Also, smoking seems to mimic our need to take a deep breath, try it without a butt to see if you feel better.

    One report of an mri I had says I have a hole in my brain from cigarettes, almost two inches in diameter, want one? you can grow your own. ( also, my farher smoked two packs a day and my mother five so there was plenty of smoke in my environment.)

    Use to have a drink or two, but since beng on all different medications all it did was give me indigestion. Just use common sense whatever you do, moderation seems a wise choice in everything.
