      Smoking is one of the risk factors that has been associated with ALS in several studies as described in this article. It is not known whether this increased risk is caused by nicotine, oxidative stress, or other toxins in tobacco products.

      Are you currently a smoker? Have you tried to quit? If you smoked in the past, do you think it contributed to your having ALS now? Does your caregiver smoke and how do you feel about that?

      Yes I think my smoking was one of many contributors to ALS.  I stopped in 97 but still think it may have contributed but is not solely responsible.  There are way too many ‘could haves.’

      I smoked throughout my teens. I quit in 1994.  I doubt it’s a contributor for me.
