I quit smoking (cold turkey) four days ago, after it suddenly hit me that I had completely lost my sense of smell, and could no longer taste anything properly either.
The past few days have had their ups and downs. I never knew it would be so much easier to get up in the mornings, but then I wasn't prepared for coughing up carbon gunge either. Ugh.
I registered here to ask a question, though. Last night and this morning, my mouth has been sore. I want to say that my teeth are sore, but I know it's more than likely my gums. Chewing is quite uncomfortable.
Has anyone else experienced this? Does this sometimes happen with smoking withdrawal?
