After I finished my treatment I asked my ENT was there anything I could do to prevent my cancer from coming back, He told me don't drink and don't smoke! Ive never smoked but I did like to drink occasionally. Ive noticed alot of people here say they continue to drink. He told me that smoking and drinking are the top two contributing factors to head and neck cancer and if it were him it just wouldn't be worth the risk. Im taking his advice because I would kick myself in the ass If i did drink and it came back (If it was from the drinking or not I would swear that's what caused it). I was just curious how many people here will continue to smoke or drink after going through this ordeal.
ps: I'm not judging anyone so please don't take it that way, I was just curious!
