Hi Ocean, It’s great to hear that you are making some great lifestyle changes,keep up the great work!! You are doing fantastic!! It’s also wonderful to hear that you are enjoying the taste of food as you are progressing in your journey. Recovering your sense of taste can be one of the first changes many smokers notice when they quit or cut back. Tobacco smoking can dramatically impact your sense of taste. Rediscovering your sense is one of many benefits you can receive from becoming smoke-free. This can be one of the very first steps of your body recovering! Keep up AWESOME Work!

Hey guys, I've been feeling this the last few days, hunger!  I'm one to skip meals, not snack, and my first meal is usually in the afternoon.  But lately with my cutting down of cigarettes, and continuing to skip meals, I suddenly feel starving and it appears to come on fast.  Food has never tasted better.  Im sitting here now, an hour ago I wasn't registering hunger, and then boom to now, and I'm starving and wndering how I'll make it to dinner.  Enter the cheese and crackers and they taste so good.  Has my addiction been hiding my hunger all this time?
