For the first 48 hrs after tooth removal it is advised to avoid smoking and alcohol because it interfears with blood clotting and wound healing, after a week it is ok.but since u hv stopped better to continue in the interest of good health

Smoking and alcohol can delay your healing process.. Healing below your gums can go on fr upto a month. So its advisable to wait fr some time to avoid further problems in your healing socket.
