    Serious dry mouth issues going on right now. Drinking copious amounts of water and it is not helping. Afraid of drinking too much water. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this normal at 25 days into a cold turkey quit? Other than water, has anyone else found anything that helps with the dry mouth?

    I did cold turkey as well and around the 3rd or 4th week I had a real full on craving spell - dry mouth, sweats, restless, etc. 

    It was the last big craving spell by the addict in my head to try to get me back to smoking. I found that in the weeks following my cravings subsided and my outlook and health really started to improve.

    Hi there emancipated,

    Although I didn't suffer from dry mouth, I did a little research and found out that this is normal. Apparently, if you talk to your pharmacist there might be some products that can help.  

    My daughter was on medication that caused dry mouth and she resolved this by drinking water SLOWLY (little sips throughout the day) as well as sucking on candy (sugarless and citrus flavor) which helped.

    I hope things improve for you soon, emancipated.

    AND 25 DAYS!!! AMAZING!!
