Cigarettes  & Bowel Movements
There is a clearly distinguished relationship between cigarettes, bowel movements and laxatives. Many people find difficulty at bowel movement after they quit smoking. The good old reason is that nicotine contained in cigarettes stimulates receptors in the intestines making it easy to move things through. When smoking is halted this hyper-stimulation is not available for the gastro-intestinal tract to make speedy movements. So your bowel movement (which has gotten used to the speed track by now) stops altogether or delays.
