Smoking cessation: Congrats on understanding the link between smoking and many diseases. See your doc to rule out medical conditions. You MAY be anxious when you smoke and it triggers anxiety manifested in your jaw. Clinical hypnosis can help w/smoking cessation. See www.asch.net for referrals. Peace and good health.
