Loss of sense of smell and taste
An_206847 posted:
I stopped smoking a year and a half ago on Chantix, however I lost my sense of smell and taste shortly after I quit and have not yet gained it back. Is there anything I can do as I worry that I will be unable to smell a fire, or any other dangerous scent. This really came to the front when I poured some drain cleaner down the drain and a friend came over and asked why there was such a strong smell of sulfuric acid in the house.
