I'm on Day 21 of being smoke-free, and am feeling terrible with the worst being my taste. I have always loved coffee and this week no matter what coffee I had - home made, bought, hot, cold, cream & sugar or none - it all tasted terrible. At first I thought it was a bad coffee, but now I'm thinking otherwise.
On top of that, I'm getting a cough and feeling the gross mucus and phlegm in my throat, which every so often, I get this horrible taste in the back of my throat - almost tastes like a smoke, but 10x worse.
Anyone else experience these two things? Is this normal to not like food/drink you previously liked? Anyone else find the mucus/phlegm to taste like smoke/tar/grossness?
