I've been smoking for a while now. Initially I didn't mind the taste it left in my mouth, it wasn't pleasant but I could let it go. Lately I've noticed how I need to wash my mouth or at least drink water after smoking to get rid of the taste that I'm suddenly beginning to hate. It seems fine while I'm smoking, but when I'm done I need to get the smell off my lips and tongue. It usually bothers me less when I smoke menthol cigarettes, but I try not to smoke these too much as I've heard it's particularly bad for the throat. Does anyone else feel this way?
