Does smoking affect the senses of taste and smell?

    Regular smokers often find that their senses of taste and smell will gradually fade. That results from the tar that coats their tongue and nasal passages. This may not be noticeable to a smoker until after he or she quits smoking and begins to notice changes in how foods taste and smell.
