    I'd lay off for a while, you don't want any problems with those things. Besides, it's just one weekend.

    Keep your mouth closed & breath through your nose! I don't smoke and didn't drink through a straw & still got them, twice.

    I was smoking and drinking within hours of mine being pulled. Maybe not the smartest thing, but I survived .

    You shouldnt drink anything with carbonation because the bubbles will lift out the blood clot

    I had all 4 pulled at once. All dry at once. :( I didn't do anything wrong, didn't have a straw and all we had at the time to drink was "bug juice", I didn't even smoke. I was underway on deployment. Fun times.

    had all 4 of mine done at the same time, i never stopped smoking cigarettes and I was drinking Jack as soon as the pain meds wore off. But i never had any problem with dry socket, but i did have to chew on gauze for like the first 12 hours because it would not stop bleeding.

    I had my wisdom's pulled on 4 successive Fridays a few years back. The first one was a mofo and took em over an hour to yank, the rest were easier. I smoked and drank pretty much right after each one and didn't have a problem.

    I had all 5 (yes five!) pulled at the same time. Knocked me out and woke up about 7 hours later, was told it only took about 20 mins. Smoked and got dry socket on the bottom. Not fun at all. Do whatever you can to avoid it. :deal:
