Hi Jaxson,

It's good to hear that you have already consulted your doctor about these issues. It's been a few days since your last post, how are you doing today?

Stay strong.

Thank you for your words of encouragement and knowledge. According to my doctor, smoking cigarettes literally cooks your gums, teeth, throat and lungs. He explained that the body becomes used to the coating of smoke/tar/toxins, and when you stop smoking the body has to readjust. When you smoke the blood flow is decreased throughout your body, which includes your oral cavities. Your mouth has some of the most sensitive parts in entire body, so when blood begins to flow there again to heal, every little thing feels amplified. My doctor stated that this was completely normal, and actually a very good sign that my body is healing and blood flow is starting to return to normal. Although it’s no fun right now, it certainly sounds like my body is healing.

Hi Jaxson,
 Congratulations on quitting smoking! /  What’s bothering me is I came down with strep throat two days after I quit, along with tonsillitis and a bad sinus infection! My eyes hurt, along with my gums and teeth. Smoking cigarettes covers up or hides a lot of ailments, and when we stop smoking we start to notice them. It could be a coincidence that you came down with the strep throat, tonsillitis and sinus infection right after you quit, then again maybe not. Have you consulted your doctor yet? As for your eyes hurting, that can be a side effect of quitting smoking, that and headaches along with a few other issues. I'm not sure about the gums and teeth, again, have you talked to your doctor about this? I truly have no desire or craving to smoke. That's great to hear. A positive attitude helps you on your quit journey. Keep that can do attitude with you at all times. / I'm sure your wife is happy you quit, and I hope your son is old enough to understand how hard this can be on you at times. I wish you the best on your quit Journey Jaxson.
Stay strong.

I quit smoking four days ago. I smoked between 10 and 20 cigarettes a day for about three years. I never smoked in my life before that, I started when I was about 32 years old. I’m still very active and play sports, most importantly I have a wife and a five-year-old son; so I simply do not want to hurt my body anymore. So I quit cold turkey, and I truly have no desire or craving to smoke. What’s bothering me is I came down with strep throat two days after I quit, along with tonsillitis and a bad sinus infection! My eyes hurt, along with my gums and teeth. I don’t know if any of this is typical or if anyone else has experienced it. Thanks everybody.
