I just quit smoking and what causes all the saliva I keep swallowing
Hello and welcome to HCM,
I believe that you are asking why you are having increased saliva right now after you quit? Well, since you recently quit, you are having what is known as the withdrawal reaction which can manifest in different ways for different people.
