For me it killed the smell of everything...I remember when my hubby cut the grass one day , and i was like wow!!  I have always loved that smell...Flowers, food, even my kids...I would hug them after a bath, but after i got clean i would hug them for much longer, because they just had this wonderfull smell...ARe sense come back...All the way to sex...

In August I weighed 83lbs. I stopped using Sept. 5th. I weighed yesterday and I now weigh 108lbs. I've gained 25lbs. I feel fat even though I'm not. But yes, drugs of all kinds curve the appetite and how food tastes and smells. Keep on keeping on and eat and eat. Drugs deplete our bodies of the nutrients we need and even if you are not skin and bones, you're probably malnourished in one way or another. Glad you're getting better. Chin up..its a great ride to the top.

Peace and Love,

Carrie

Have you ever seen that Claridan commercial? Where everything is kinda foggy, then the lady says "now I'm Claridan clear" and they peel the foginess away. I think of getting clean every time I see that commercial, because evrything does get clearer. Not just sight, but smell, Taste, feel and emotions...all the senses.
I remember how good the air smelled and how blue the sky looked.
Enjoy it ! It's like coming out of a coma.
Congrats on 4 days !
Keep it up!
