Mouth Ulcers

I woke up this morning with really, really painful mouth ulcers, right at the very back of my tongue, which my teeth keep scratching.

Is it because of the gum? Or the not smoking?

oooo thats weird, my hubby got mouth ulsers as soon as he quit, he used patches tho

Dont think it was the patches, unless he was trying to smoke em ... :D :D :D

Ye it's quite common when you quit nothing to do with NRT just take extra vitamin C.

When my husband quit he had mouth ulcers.

Think I will pop down the chemists in the morning, they are absolutely killing me.

But it has one wonderful side effect - do not want one of the devils little white killing sticks anywhere near my gob!

Yup...I used to get horrid mouth ulcers.

I think it's the quit not the NRT or whatever.

Same old messga, though...it DOES pass!

Good luck...My solution was warm slightly salt mouth washes just as often as I could...it helped!

STILL... it's all worth it! What's a few eeeks of rubbish compared to the rest of our lives feeling wonderful??! Bring it on I say - I'll fight the nicotine all the way!! :D
