  • Great job Bev1234๐Ÿ™Œ... I was wondering why my mouth was sore and my throat. I thought I was coming down with a cold. And my gums were sore too. Makes sense since our mouths were beat up pretty bad for so long it has to go through the pain of healing! So proud of you and it's encouraging hearing everyone's stories! Keep up the great work! And remember NOPE!! ๐Ÿ™…

  • My mouth was sore and my teeth ached...... My physical withdrawal was brutal...... Just out of it and nauseous.......aching muscles and non stop headaches.... But.... I'm okay now... I just have to follow our NOPE NOT ONE PUFF. EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

    Keep up the great work๐ŸŒท

  • I just used corsadol mouth wash and still do, our mouths go through so much as the nicotine kills off all nerve endings and taste buds, I will be so glad to get to the 6-12 months mark as I know everything will of gone back to normal and the thought of nicotine entering my body again will be a big fat NO xx
