  • dry lips - yes, i remember this from my first quit, you may be licking or touching your lips and so removing all the protective oils (wel that's my theory!!) so, tough as it may be, cut that out!!! yup that's just normal

    thirsty - drink then!!! :) yes sounds quite normal, did you used to make yourself a cup of tea every time you smoked?

    heatburn - from all the detox stress your having to cope with, sounds quite normal, exercise may help?

    brushing teeth makes me retch - no that's just weird :)

    On the plus side im not missing the smokes im really proud of myself

    brill :) happy for you too!

  • What a correct assumption - brew drinker along with a smoke ! brews havent been tasting the same since quitting they have been tasting really strong! obviously i havent been having as many without smoking hence my thirst! not put that link together so thanks for that :D

    I do a lot of excersise normally. The heartburn seems to have eased of today.

    Still feeling positive... lovely to have a clearer smelling nose.. went to my brothers today all i could smell was smoke!!! came out my hair stank of the stuff blurghhhhh !

  • i'm feeling the same

    felt coughing up my left lung this morning!! and i've been feeling very thirsty too!

    but i thinking calming the thirst craving is alot better than lighting up..dont you agree

    keep up the good work :D
