Bad breath sure stinks, but lung cancer stinks worse!
FitPerez reader Samuel made the right decision and quit smoking recently, but he's suffering from bad breath, which is a common side effect of quitting tobacco.
He came to the right place for advice to get rid of it and wrote smoking counselor Craig Nabat, asking:
I quit smoking a month ago and I have been getting really bad breathe? How long will this last?
According to Craig:
To still be experiencing bad breath one month after quitting is pretty unusual. If you haven’t snuck a cig here and there over the past month, you should be in the clear by now, because all of the toxins have left your system.
You may want to try one of these two breath freshener products, Therabreath or Mint Asure. Each of these products can provide you with fresher breath that should also help inspire you to stay off smoking. Keep one of these products near to you at all times. Just do a Google search for them.
We always recommend to our Freedom Laser Therapy clients that it is a good idea to get your teeth professionally cleaned once you quit smoking. The former smoker loves experiencing their clean teeth and a fresh mouth again.
