Hi new here and a little bit about me

Hi ,

Today has been my first 24 ( well over 24 hours now) hours smoke free in 10 years to put that into perspective I am 24 this year so the math speaks for its self :eek: . I don't smoke in my house ,car and I find its really easy to stay away from smoking in cinemas etc and I hate the smell of smoke yet somehow I have a 10-15 a day habit. Today has been fine so far just used 2 of the 1mg lozenge's fingers crossed for the rest of my life :) I went to fag ends this morning and got the mini lozengers but for some reason my mouth and throat felt numb with them ?? is this normal. I am going to sick with the Nicorette brand instead of the NiQuitin

Hi welcome to the forum and well done with your will find lots of help and advice on here has been a godsend to me...xx



A good time to quit while you are still young. Stick at it, it will be worth it in the end.

I suspect it is not unusual to have a numb mouth with lozengers. If they continue causing you a problem it may be you need to consider something different to help you.

I suggest you have a look round the forum. someone will have had experience of numbness


Thank you so much, Still have not needed anything so hopefully that is a good sign. I am not putting my eggs into one basket just yet though :) I have been using the Lozenges all week to cut down no problem but when I changed brand today that's when I got this numb sensation in my mouth and throat that ended up in a panic attack.
