Bloody hell, ever since I gave up smoking I’ve had nothing but problems! No really, my health has been terrible since giving up smoking and I wonder if it’s actually possible to cause yourself problems by stopping so suddenly? I mean, 35 years of non-stop smoking … it has to have had some affect on me.
Anyway … this time the filling in my molar has finally given up the ghost and now no matter what I eat, it feels like a team of navvies are ramming gravel into my teeth and splitting them apart. It’s going to be a long time until October I can tell.
Thinking about it though, I’ve been a heavy smoker for 35 years, rolling my own as well as tailor-mades for 33 of those years, yet I have had 2 molars extracted by the dentist, 1 by me, and another which may be saved but may have to come out. Don’t they say you lose 1 tooth for every ten years of smoking? Well, that’s my four for four decades, so maybe with any luck I won’t lose any more? I’m not sure how true it is though as the other top ‘fang’ is dead I’m sure, it feels the same way as the other one did before I had to remove it.
Crikey, I may well end up Gummy Gurning Gary hahahaha
