I can't imagine that you could heal your body in this horrible struggle against candida if you smoke. It just doesnt make sense to me. Like trying to detox and then putting chemicals (very very bad chemicals) right back into your body. It's weird that the candida is effecting my lungs so bad and I don't smoke (i smoked 1 yr out of my life back when I was 18), and yet the smokers aren't. I would be so careful if I were all you, It is by far the worst symptom you can get (not being able to breathe). I would also think it would leave you wide open for infection and or candida, you guys are lucky it hasn't. (I wasn't being mean, just worried about it going to your lungs)
smoking is a weird thing, I smoked a pack a day for a year and quit in one day. and I have one friend who did the same but I also have friends who can not quit and its hell for them, its so weird the differences! Keep trying though, it will help you all around. good luck!!
