Bad Breath - Burnt/Smoke Smell


I am really worried as time and time again I come home and my wife fights with me because my breathe has a smokey smell.
I used to be a smoker and have already stopped for over 3 months now.
I have a weird taste in my mouth like I was sucking on a Stilpane or Panado (Paracetomol) tablet.
I have tried many mouth cleansers and chewed on mint sweets but the smell still is there.
My wife is beginning to show no trust in me after I keep telling her I quit yet there is still a burning smell in my mouth.
The smell is not always there but does come up atleast 2 or 3 times a week.

Please help.

Please do NOT brush your teeth with lemon juice.  Lemon juice is acidic and any acidic foods will soften the enamel on your teeth which can lead to damage of the actual tooth.  Sugar cane and all types of sugar too, can damage teeth.  

You can however, use Bicarbonate of Soda.  This is in most toothpastes anyway.

Make sure though that you do brush your teeth in the morning and again before bedtime as well as floss the gums every day.  Gum disease can loosen the teeth and the teeth can just drop out - I've seen this happen.

Make sure that you drinks lots of water.  2 litres is usually recommended, but you may need to drink more if you sweat a lot.  

Bad breath can come from bad teeth, unhealthy gums, throat problems, if you have mucus around your throat, from stomach problems.  If you eat strongly flavoured foods, garlic for example, that too will give you a bad breath.  Stomach problems can give you bad breath.

I used to smell that type of smell from my mother's mouth and she was a diabetic.  So it may be a good idea to get checked out for any signs of diabetes.

Eating fresh parsley is said to help with breath problems.

My guy is the same way. He quit smoking but still smells like he does. It's from your body, it's trying to get all of it out of your system. Pretty much it's your body's way of starting fights...
