Congrats on 7 smoke-free days! Nicotine is a stimulant, and constipation is something people commonly experience after quitting stimulants. It sounds like you're doing all the right things to remedy the problem! I've heard that apple juice can help!
: Seven days off cigarettes - happy as can be about it & doing quite well I think - except that I'm carrying around four days of food in my usually easy going tummy. I run 6.5 miles every day, drinks lots of water, eat plenty of fruits, salad & veggies daily. I take the usual assortment of vitimins daily and 2 FiberCon which helped evrything along just fine when I smoked but are doing little for me now. Any advice? I can offer one tip to those who suffer with me, eat grapes - well chewed and lots of them - you'll get some relief.
