When can I smoke again?

I had three of my wisdom teeth removed on 09/03/15 and I am just wondering when it would be safe for me to smoke again and eat normal foods?

Do not smoke for at least three days after extractions of your wisdom teeth.  When smoking, the suction used to inhale, may also dislodge the clot which is  the first step in the wound healing.  It is very painful when this clot is dislodged.  Be careful and follow your doctor's instructions!
