Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

Since when are you having problems with your smell? Can you be more elaborate about it?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

. I have heard that your sence of taste and smell heighten once you quit.

once you quit smoking the sense of taste and smell will improve gradually. However, the smell of cigarette may sometimes get stuck inside your nose and you should use room sprays in your house and remove ash trays etc to get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke.

You can take zinc supplements regularly to quickly get back a normal sense of taste. Zinc helps to act on the taste buds and improve your sense of taste.

I hope my answer has helped you.
