Smoked for 5 years. Haven't had one in 16 days. I am not even craving them right now.
But the problem is I feel so awful!
My tongue is getting tiny little white sores that hurt all the time unless I'm chewing ice or for about 30 mins after numbing it with strong mouthwash.
My gums bleed when I brush.
Got an ear infection that refuses to go away (probably not related, but after 6 weeks of pain when swallowing after antibiotics and a syringing did nothing, it just adds to it).
All my gums feel pained and I just feel like they have receded. Feels weird anyway.
Constantly hacking up phlegm. I know my lungs are clearing out, but bleh!
I wake up to breath that's far worse than when I smoked!
I don't crave a ciggy. But I also know (because I have had all this before) that as soon as I smoke again, all this pain goes away.
I don't want to smoke. But I quite for 2 months last time and this was like an unending hell.
Does this stuff go away, or is it a choice between this and smoking?
