I tend to have a few puffs of a cigarette through out the day. I just started 25mg of sertraline 4 days ago? I know smoking is bad in general and I am working on quitting. I am wondering if this bad habit may affect my treatment negatively?
Does cigarette smoking affect how sertraline 25mg is metabolized?

If you do further research though some sites say that smoking can decrease the efficacy of antidepressants. A good reason to stop.
Good for you for trying to quit!
