Re: stop smoking and then bad bloating/slow digestion
I haven't experienced this yet but I'm just 2 days in. I do know that I seemed to experience it at times when I drastically cut down on cigarettes in the past (i always went for the slow torture methods of quitting until recently).
Just force yourself to down a glass of water every time you want a cigarette. And one thing to watch out for is artificial sweeteners or anything that contains them! Equal, Nutrasweet, Truvia, Splenda--pretty much all of them but Stevia in the Raw! My god, they will eventually bloat you like a beached whale, and they do it slowly, insidiously, within days--sometimes weeks, depending on your sensitivity and how often you consume them. But just you wait. You will find yourself consuming more and more of those little packets or drinks (because watch out: they also make you crave more sweets) and then it's like suddenly you wake up and you look pregnant. Sometimes it's just water weight, and sometimes it's just the fallout from the massive cravings they gave you.
