  • Hello Sheknows1 and congratulations on your milestone!

    I didn't have any problems with mouth infections myself but I have seen quite a few posts from people who did in the time that I've been here. I think it's fairly common, and your dentist doesn't seem to think there's much to be worried about. Hope it clears up soon.

    Anyway, just saying hello...Keep it up!

  • Wow hun congrates to u too. and thxs will keep going.... Lol i find loads of persons i know still offer cigs to me though and say one wont hurt.... Really! but i think NO! It will .... Also in 6 months my denist said as smoking has loosened a lot of teeth. He is willing to give me permenate ones for free....as a reward as he knows it does bother me and says he can afford it....been with him for 40yrs now....anyway gl to u hun. Xxxx

  • I wish my dentist was that generous...just paid ยฃ53 to have a filling replaced!

    Good for you for refusing the cigs offered to you. It's very tempting I know, been there myself. People don't bother offering me one now, which is a relief. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Hi nozmo. Thxs for that as it is at the mo hard...also had to tell them to stop blowing the smoke my way...was at party and they said dont u wish u were still smoking ,then blew the thing all at me...think i nd to get a hand smoke machine ready then iยดll let them have it...LOL. Due to ill health i nd to keep going. So hope to post one day 1yr too.xxxx

  • Shecknows...Yes, I have read about few people suffering the mouth thing. I was one of the lucky ones although after my quit lost a couple of Moulers.... I was also certified to have COPD but it is livable....Yes, I am still excruting some grid and grime with hard practice but in general it is way better than in the beginning of my quit....Stay strong and be assured you are on a amazing journey of recovering.....!!!!

    (Agreed with Nozmo..wish my dentist was that generous.. Removing that 2 teeth was the equivalent of โ‚ฌ 250-00)

  • hi Sheknows1

    you have done well ๐Ÿ˜

    I had mouth ulcers,loads of the little buggers ๐Ÿ˜

    I've had a throat infection for a while now and I thing gargling salt water has helped me.its a bit grose but may work ๐Ÿ˜’

    my infection was not with stopping.just a bug I picked up ๐Ÿ˜’

    I had "boarder line COPD which now all this time is a 100% better.the constant coughing had disappeared I can run around with grandchildren ๐Ÿ˜

    its a hard battle to stop smoking,but its a battle we must win ๐Ÿ˜’

    you keep at it,it's well worth it ๐Ÿ˜

    take care ๐Ÿ˜Š

    keep kicking ๐Ÿ˜Ž
