Well here I am at the beginning of the 2nd month and a good few days into week 5. I have never gone past 4 weeks before now, and I only did that once, many years ago.
My poor mouth is still suffering, I have ulcers, part of my gum at the front is inflamed, and my teeth have become extremely sensitive. Ive tried using very mild mouthwash but even that burns me so much I have to do a quick rinse then spit it out and rinse my tongue off.
The thing is if this had happened when I smoked I would never have blamed it on smoking, I know this because I have had problems with my gums for many years and no matter what the dentist said I wouldnt give up. I know its worse now as the ph balance in my saliva has changed because Im not smoking, but whats a girl supposed to do.
I can put up with the pain in my mouth for however long it takes or I can sit back and watch my illness develop into chronic bronchitis or emphesemia or if Im really unlucky I could end up going through cancer and all the treatment that brings with it.
No contest really...So get on with it mouth, bring it on, give it your best because you will not be getting any more smoke.
