Question For The Blokes - Non-Restrictive!

One of the strange changes I've encountered since I quit is shaving. My face has become incredibly sensitive and sore, since there is no change in my technique or style I can only put it down to the quit. Thing is I don't know why - any ideas or am I the only one experiencing this. Maybe it's the same on ladies legs and stuff.

Thanks

Can't say I've experienced this york. Are you sure you are still using a razor!?;)

Seems an odd side effect, but it could be something to do with blood vessels being less constricted, increased blood flow to the skin etc - I would go and buy yourself a super-sensitive shaving balm and see if that does the trick. If it is anything to do with the quit, it'll likely wear off soon.

Nope, that's definitely a strange one!

I had TERRIBLE mouth ulcers, the worst cough I can remember ever having but no sensitivity.

This stopping smoking is just the weirdest thing immaginable. Today I'm salivating like a mad dog!

However I wouldn't swop my worst craving day for my happiest smoking day.

My skin isn't sore in the least, but it has gotten a lot softer since I quit... A few pimples, but really very little.
