you can smoke anytime you want, BUT, after every smoke wash your mouth out with a baking soda/salt water solution i got a tooth pulled yesterday and iv been smoking but washing my mouth out every time and my "socket" is healing fine.

Usually we recommend three days after extractions to not smoke.  You should call your dentist to see what they recommend for your particular case.
