Hi - I'm new here. Have had IBS for over 20 years after a very bad parasite infection that went undiagnosed for over 10 years. I have mainly diarrhoea, multiple times a day, but the only way I can usually manage to go to the toilet is to have a few puffs on a cigarette. Does anyone else have this, or (which would be really helpful) did anyone have this problem and manage somehow to overcome it? I do not want to be a smoker for ever!
