Forgive me if this was asked before: I smoke, very rarely. Last night was a special occasion. Smoking raises your sugar?

I quit 15 months ago after my stroke. Saw the stupidity in it. Also the terrible example I was setting. Since you only smoke on 'special occasions' why not just give it up all together? As a 40 year pack a day smoker I assure you that smoking is for losers.

I honestly don't smoke at all… Once a year at most! I just noticed my sugar was really high after the fact. Just curious!

Howdy Kejo
When in High school vocational Ag shop, someone set my hair on fire. Does that count for smoking? LoL! I would have expected that something like that would raise my stress levels, especially if the fire burned my scalp and would have had a negative effect by raising my BG levels!

I have never smoked tobacco, so I don't know how it would affect my BG or A1c% but I couldn't resist telling this true tale from my youth. (they did beat the fire out before it got too big). Hope you got a chuckle because laughter can cause one's BG to lower. ;- o

God's best to you and yours
