Embarassing side effect?

Hi all, I've nearly finished week 3, and I have been experiencing bad wind and have been more regular than normal (I thought it was supposed to be opposite when you quit?) anyway, just wondering if anyone else is having this also? :o

    Hey Matt.. yep.. its normal.. Gas is one of the signs of withdrawal. Acid reflux is also a sign where you might feel a little pain in your chest and want to burp...;)

  • Thought excessive wind was normal for the male of the species....... or is it just me:rolleyes:

    Yup, even my male dog farts more than his sister!!:D

  • But consider this ....

    It demonstrates life's balance - if you farted this much when you're a smoker you'd have to be very careful with the naked flame ...

    PMSL :D Well said Pono!

  • I think the answer is in your signature. Unless you were a very very heavy smoker I would think you are now taking in more nicotine then when you were smoking, 25mg patch and an inhaler is a lot. It is the nicotine which has laxative properties in smoking and that is why a side effect of quitting is being constipated, but I think because your using so much NRT you have now gone the other way.

  • Doctor, "What seems to be the problem?"

    Patient, "Doc, I've got the farts. I mean I fart all the time,"

    The Doctor nods, "Hmm."

    Patient, "My farts do not stink and you can't hear them. It's just that I fart all the time. Look, we've been talking here for about 10 minutes and I've farted five times. You didn't hear them and you don't smell them, do you?"

    "Hmm," says the Doctor,

    He picks up his pad and writes out a prescription.

    The patient is thrilled "Great doc. This prescription, will it really clear up my farts?"

    "No," sighs the Doctor, "The prescription is to clear your sinuses. Next week I want you back here for a hearing test."
