Indigestion, Constipation, Nausea

Nicotine has been shown to affect the digestive process and organs amongst all the other effects it has. This can be either direct or indirect however constipation is a commonly reported side effect of smoking cessation so do not be worried if it happens. Here are some things you can do to help with the problem:

Drink lots of water

Your body will be using a lot of water as it heals. This is going to be a part of the process and you may also notice that you are more thirsty than normal during the first few weeks. Not only will drinking extra water help your body but it can also help with cravings. Be sure to take some time out to drink a nice cold glass of water and it could also help with constipation.

Eat vegetables and fruits

As you normalize your digestive process, eating lots of fruits and vegetables can help by giving your body more fiber and vitamins. The fiber will help with the constipation while other vitamins and nutrients can help your body replenish the nutrients and tissues it needs.

Eat regularly

Getting your body on a more normal eating schedule with several meals spread out throughout the day can help with quitting symptoms as well as digestive issues that result.
