Congratulations to both of you on your quits!
A common symptom of of smoking cessation....
Quitstipation --Irregularity in bowel movements associated with smoking cessation, caused by a change in GI tract bacterium.
What helped me the most was eating applesauce every day.
Applesauce was not something I had often, but my daughter had some of those individual ones. I had one...it tasted good. After a day or two of eating applesauce, I was back to 'normal'. And I have kept up the habit of having some each day.
Maybe it can help you, too.
