Strange smells
redone11 posted:
After trying everything on the market to help me quit smoking, and failing at it I might add, I quit cold trukey.

Which is fine, has been over a month now. However, since I quit, I seem to smell and taste car exhaust. Doesn't matter where I am, I can still smell it. Like when I drink a coke, all I can taste is the carbonation, cannot taste the coke taste.

Is anyone else having any issues like this? I don't know what I can do about it or how to make it go away and its really frustrating!!!!!

Hi Redone-Actually my family doc told me an exsmoker has a keener sense a smeel than someone who had never smoked! He told me that when I told him about some unpleasant smells I never smelled before.
