Dry mouth

Hi on day 40 and am experiencing an extremely dry mouth, especially in the night. Anyone else had this? Otherwise doing great. Off to a dinner dance tonight, looking forward to having a few wheeze free dances with my hubby (we used to be competition ballroom dancers back in the day) just two old crocks trotting around a dance floor now though. It's turned a bit nippy here in Spain today, so I shall be pleased I don't have to stand outside feeding my habit tonight. A couple of days and I shall be 6 weeks quit. How its flown by seems like only yesterday I was posting on here for the first time.

The weather here in South West today has been the warmest its been for ages , I'm sure it will improve in Spain soon ??

I've had that hon and have twigged that it's down to the fact that I would always have a drink with a smoke (hated smoking dry mouthed) so since I quit I'm not drinking as much! Now trying to make sure I get through at least 2 litres a day and have a glass of water by the bed, could be worth a try :)

Smoking always dried my mouth out, so I used to drink loads when I had a fag - it made my mouth feel horrible - have kept my water intake up though so haven't had a dry mouth. :)


jeannie one of the reason,s i gave up smoking was because of a dry mouth, soon as i lay down in bed i got it, have nt had a cig in 2 months and the dry mouth has gone, seems its the opposite for you so i dont know how or what is happening but i do hope it clears up ........ good luck :)
