    I just got my smell senses back after 3 years of smoking! Went to the shop this morning, and a woman walked past me absolutely stinking of cigarettes, yuk! I've never noticed anyone who smells of smoke when I smoked analogs. I live near water and on the way back I swear I could smell water and grass all around it! I almost cried :). I can't believe I am a non-smoker! I remember myself a few months ago, after numerous attempts to quit smoking, feeling so stuck... like I will forever be a smoker and there is no way out for me :(

    Whoopie and congratulations. That's the first health benefit I noticed. I remember going in Wal-Mart and thinking I never knew this place stunk like this. Don't remember which section I was in.

    You will find there are many pros and cons to regaining your sense of smell - LOL! I was absolutely amazed at how good the garden smelled last summer. I try to keep that in mind whenever I come across something rank ;-)

    Oh goodness yes, the sense of smell. A newfound delight or absolutely disgusting. Once mine came back it was in hyper-drive, though I think it is starting to calm down now after almost 3 months smoke free. That first couple of weeks when it came back, I could smell a smoker (not smoke, but the smokers smell) from across a large room. Today I threw out 4 steaks because I could detect a slightly fishy/rank smell. They were probably fine but my sniffer said no :cry:

    Hey, some of us have to live with that Brookshire's museum... in our backyards

    I work retail, and we sell the "OMG satans" at reasonable prices, so I have several customers a night that I literally have to hold my breath around now. The smell of cigarette smoke rolling off of them is just appalling. I seem to have a brand-specific repugnance, though. Camel smokers smell WAY worse to me than Marlboro smokers, for instance.

    That's awesome. Getting back that sense of smell is a wonderful feeling. I remember visiting my parent a month after I quit smoking, my mom was making apple pie. The smell from that pie literally had my taste buds melting. Good for you. It only gets better from here!
