Patient : I recently quit smoking (about 2 weeks), but continue to drink alcohol. I have not changed the amount I drink, however, I now have an issue with blacking out (or at least extreme difficulty remembering) towards the end of the night. I am not an alcoholic by any means and do not usually go above my limits. Is this a normal side-effect of quitting smoking or something I should be seen for?
