Hi to all, I just wanted to stress the importance of not smoking cigarettes especially if you have been diagnosed with hpv. I was just diagnosed with high risk hpv with ascus in february, Of course I am terrified but one thing I did do is quit smoking. At first I was like why am I going to quit smoking of course the doctor is going to say quit smoking all doctor's say that. Then after realizing how serious this hpv is, I thought to myself, I already have high risk hpv, why do I want to increase my chances even more of developing cancer? Cigarettes also break down your immune system and I dont know about you guys, but I need mine to be working in full force! I know it's alot harder for others to quit, I have been smoking since the age of 13, I am 24 now and it's been almost a full week since I've picked up a cigarette. I dont even miss it and I already have noticed a change. I just feel better period. I hope this message has helped someone out there to quit smoking or at least think about it. My doctor has also told me that smoking cigarettes activates the hpv and gets it going. Not for me! I am not going to help this virus in any way.
