"Salty Rinse"

Posted in Hints and tips 25 Aug 2016

Approaching 6 weeks and happy with myself. Naturally nrt helps with cravings , however i find the habit hard to break. Now starting to cough more often as i presume the cleansing begins. Sometimes coughing is so intense it is actually painful in chest. What i have found to be helpful in case someone else going through the coughing stage is the a teaspoon full of salt into a glass of lukewarm water and dissolve. Then gargle slowly but do not swallow. When complete do not rinse mouth with fresh water but eat a piece of any fruit you have available. Hope this helps someone too.
