Hi Barb

Thanks for your post and welcome!

Acid reflux is an awful thing to live with and so uncomfortable.

Smoking increases the risk of acid reflux. Did you have it while you were still smoking? If you are 90 days free of smoking, then it would seem like you did. Quitting was probably the best thing to do and congrats on probably saving your own life; smoking, in one form or another, usually kills it's loyal customers.

I am glad to see that you are now better and again, congratulations on your 90 days - that's amazing!

Let us know if you have any questions or if we can help you in any way-
