What do you say?

Typically I say: "No, I don't smoke cigarettes", but I'm just wondering if when they ask you they mean any type of smoke inhalation?

I'm recovering from foot surgery and my doctor asked to make sure I didn't smoke, but he didn't say if he meant only cigarettes or otherwise. I'm not really sure if there's anything about smoking weed that would hinder my recovery (bone fusion in my foot).. but I'm not the most knowledgeable on the subject so any input would be appreciated :smoke:

I say yes to both, but looking back, I sorta regret doing it because I have a weird feeling this sorta info gets into health insurance companies hands...

Even more reason to worry with Obomacare and whatnot.

I guess I should do the same because there's doctor-patient confidentiality. I don't know.. I just never thought it was worth mentioning because I've always thought weed was harmless.

And I just felt weird telling a foot doctor that I smoke weed... it seemed very irrelevant at the time, but I want to recover asap.

Don't jut say "yes" because they will assume cigs. Don't be afraid to tell him everything. Lying is literally a matter of life and death. You don't want bad reactions...

i got asked if i do alcohol/drugs and if i forget things when i do alcohol/drugs, on a sheet of paper. i circled yes. Then my indian doctor comes in the room, and asks what kind i do. i say cannabis, and he was cool, and just said don't drive on it. He asked nothing about frequency or anything... bet he puffs that hindu kush:smoke:

I prefer laying on my stomach too, it keeps me from getting hard with a finger up my ass. The last thing I need is some queer doctor trying to have sex with me.


You sure?? ;)

Haha thanks for the tip. I'm not really worried about insurance.. more like my doctor is this woman that reminds me of my mom and it feels super weird telling her I smoke when I'd never tell my mom that I did haha.
