clean living

I love the way the house smells. It's day 8, and my heart rate has dropped drastically.... having problems with bloatedness and gas, really not fun. I look like I gained 7 lbs around my middle. Looked it up, and apparently, this is common. Nicotine is a "digestive aid" and when we stop , it puts our digestive tract in a spin. Also, sugarless anything, causes more gas issues. Sooooo, less sugarfree, and continue drinking lots of water etc etc.. Wish my husband would quit..... he's not even thinking about it.

Hi clean living,

Well done with your quit. was just the same with the gas and feeling really bloated, it's only just going back to normal.

I think it is quite common when quitting, along with a few other things.

Keep up the good work hun.
