Even though I haven’t had a cigarette I keep getting this gross taste like I have had a cigarette after everything I do! Any suggestions? Is this normal?
Totally normal as that tar has built up in the tissues in your lungs and rises as air exchanges. You can brush your teeth, get yourself some pepermint or cinnamon gum. Or some mints... to mask it but it won't go away right for some time. You're half way to having the nicotine out of your blood stream! Now THAT is awesome!
Thank you! I thought it was a little strange! I am trying the straw thing also but every time I pick one up the taste comes!
Give it a few more days and it should be gone, gargle, brush, rinse, mint, water. Your body is cleaning itself. You will be fine. Congratulations on 2 days of freedom.
I wonder if this is a side effect of patches?
Anyway, keep the smober days coming!!!
During the early stages of my quit. I could literally smell the tar and nicotine from my lungs.
That could be what’s going on!
I know that if the doctors try to put me on to many meds I can smell the meds coming from my pores!
How are you doing Grammy25? I remember being able to smell and taste the cigarette smoke in the early days of quitting smoking even though there was no one around but after a few days it stopped I just wanted to check in with you.
I am doing ok today!
I was in church yesterday and kept smelling cigarette smoke so I smelled my sweatshirt and it wasn’t my clothes so I guess I’m not the only one that is going through this! Thank you!
Ew, YUCK...I have had phantom smells even years later but just THINKING about that taste makes me physically ill. I am sure it is a clean out of your lungs...
You’re probably right!
Sometimes I feel like saying if I’m going to taste it I might as well smoke; but it is just a thought!
My question asked and answered! Just today (Day 10 of freedom) I have had that phantom smoke taste in my mouth and throat, bizarre I thought until I read all your comments. So not losing my mind (today anyway)...thanks!
It’s great to know you’re not the only one going through something!
