Ok people im 5 months in and i have a short story to tell. There are some really bad things about giving up smoking but for me it wasnt the bad moods or mood swings or the putting on a bit of weight of the champix sickness or the CT anger or any of the numerous other things that people have happen to them. The worst thing for me was teeth.... yes folks you read that right teeth.....almost since day 1 (which is why i am posting this here) my teeth have been really painful (i have always had regular check ups so didnt think it was an actual dental problem just a symptom of giving up). So anyway this went on for about 2 months and it got worse i was spitting out a small lake of blood everytime i cleaned my teeth as well as bad pain eating anything hot or cold. I didnt notice any increase in the taste of food because everytime i ate the pain masked any flavour. So i decided enough was enough and went to the dentist. The dentist looked at my teeth and said i needed work ALOT of work. so the other day i had my final (of many) visits to the dentist. on the way home i popped into a bar for a glass of wine while waiting for my OH. It was UNBELEIVABLE 1 simple glass of pinot and the flavour exploded in my mouth NO pain no nothing just beautiful flavours. So the point of my little story is i maybe be about £400 lighter because of the dental work but my god that 1 glass of wine was worth every penny!!!!!!!
