i had my upper left wisdom tooth pulled yesterday at 1130am...

the paper says not to smoke for 48 hours...but i work tonight and i get so bored pumping gas that smoking is the only thing that keeps me sane for 8 hours...is it ok to smoke 36 hours afterwards? or is there an precautions i should take while smoking?

any help would be appreciated

I would stick to the advice of not smoking for 48Hrs or you risk having a dry socket. That is something you don't want. :scared:
