For many many years my greatest vice was smoking, and to be fair i still fight not smoking to a point.
I worked in an environment that supplied cheap cigarettes ( oil industry ) and so smoked as if it was going out of fashion, which i now know is, but i also noticed in the last 3-5 years my AVM would grow in size depending how much i smoked, on the days i hardly touched one it would decrease dramatically, and on the days that i did in excess it would increase a lot, but to my pearl this would not stop me.
I then started using an E-cig in my quest to try to stop but this made things even worse and concluded it was the nicotine that was causing the increase of size, to quite a worrying size.
I wonder if anyone that does or did smoke ever noticed this or am i alone in this observation.
Luckily i have not touched a cigarette in over a year now but do still fight the dreaded addiction, but my wake up call has significantly helped and i no longer feel quite so drawn to it.
