Discomfort in mouth, heartburn, foul odor. Stopped smoking. Cause and remedy?

I have been off the cigarettes for 6 months. My mouth feels all gooey(?), I have heartburn all the time and finally, everything around me STINKS! The woodpile is the worst and fire ashes are as bad. Some types of coffee have a smell that makes me want to puke. I was under the impression that quitting smoking was good for you. This is more than I bargained for, for sure! Got any ideas on cause and remedy? Anything would be appreciated right now. Thanks

Take heart. Quitting cigarettes definitely is good. Your body and mind needs it more than anyone or you. Just don't be panic.

None of the symptoms you mentioned are in anyway related to quitting smoking. The only problems that might arise are anxiety and relapse symptoms which you don't have now.

You had become acidic due to some other reason. Diet is the key. Control junk food intake and have enough water and bananas and other fruits. Consult your doctor if you are un comfortable.

Wish you speedy recovery
