    When I gave up smoking my sense of taste and smell was no different!

    You won’t necessarily notice it coming back – I gave up several years ago and never really noticed a great deal of difference – I even wonder if it’s true that you lose these senses very much due to smoking – and furthermore, if you want to beat Yahoo’s silly idea of a swear word, type the word F A G with spaces !-

    Your sense of smell and taste will improve your craving for a smoke is not so strong and that is n about two weeks. When I gave up smoking (33 years ago) I smoked my last cigarette on Friday afternoon and spent that evening and weekend in bed because I was feeling very drowsy and was perspiring a lot. By Monday I was feeling well enough to go to work and the rest is history. I never used patches or taken any tablets. I was only thinking of how much better off my family and I were.

    I quit about 6 years ago using Zyban tablets and found my sense of taste came back so gradually it wasn’t noticeable that it had changed. My sense of smell came back with a vengeance after a couple of weeks. I could smell someone smoking at a hundred yards and many other strong smells are very noticeable over quite a long distance.
    I wish you loads of luck with your attempt and hope it is successful

    it all depends on how long u smoked for if you smoke no stop it will take about 3 months and if uv dun it for a a month or sumthin it shud come back within a week lol but eat spicy foods and ur taste will come back a bit sooner

    Well done – keep on going you are doing great. I gave up six months ago, my taste buds did change but it is a gradual thing – it doesn’t happen overnight. I really really started to enjoy my food – when I smoked I would eat afew mouthfuls and then my mind would wander to a ciggie – now for the first time in years, I finish my food completely!. Buy a peak flow meter (boots about £10) and watch your lung capacity increase – that will make you feel good too. Keep at it – I have pretty much forgotten that I ever smoked now.
