Quick Update

Hi Everyone. I am on day 66 today and I had a dentist appointment today for my six month check up.

The dentist said my teeth and gums are in much better condition now and it's due to the stopping smoking as much as the electric toothbrush. She then went on to list all the problems with gums that smokers have and there are loads! Receding gums sounded particularly unpleasant! :eek:

So pleased I stopped and whenever I crave I'm just going to think of the consequences of smoking.

    Fantastic having someone else confirming one of the many benefits of quitting the fags.

    Nicky doing so very well indeed, the dentist is oh so right, I am having terrible time tooth and gum wise, and can confirm it's not nice, ALL BECAUSE OF SMOKING, only my self to blame.

    66 days is a great achievement, hope you proud and happy,.

    So pleased all is going well for you .:):)

    Well done

  • Thank you all for your ongoing support, I love this site!

    Max - you are so right but as smokers, we ignored advice from others.

    Tractorgirl - Thank you for your encouragement :)

    Andy - Thanks for your comment, pleased all of us posting is helping each other :)

    Tracey - I hope you can get you teeth and gums sorted. I have one loose tooth and some bleeding gums on brushing, which is all since quitting, worth it though for the benefits. :)

  • well done nicky! I like to read posts like this one. It gives ideas of what to think about during craves. Receeding gums! EWWWW!

    We shalt not smoke!

  • Thanks Princess, it really does help when the awfulness of being a smoker is pointed out :)

  • Oh for that Dentist teeth clean!!!

    Hi Nicky, pleased to hear you are doing so well. One of the things I have promised myself now that I have given up smoking is the dentist teeth clean - this time I won't have to listen to the 'you shouldn't smoke' lecture.

    I am now 10 weeks in and have saved over $1000 so getting ready to treat myself
