ok, so ive had this horrible sensitive teeth thing going on since i quit - bloomin' painful.
tonights visit to the dentist was yet another lightbulb moment.
he explained the expected - that everythign is just coming back to life, blood flow is back and therefore sensitivity is natural for a few weeks or so.
heres the clincher.........
he showed me an x ray of a tooth i am having particular problems with and showed where 20 years of smoking has started to essentially eat away at the bone around the tooth/gum thus causing some additional pain. he told me in no uncertain terms that if i had not quit i would be facing dentures in the not so distant future - BLIMEY - I AM ONLY 40:eek::rolleyes:
NOPE - not one puff ever
