well done on your 5 weeks Why not try some low fat things to pick I think it because we need something to do. Good luck anyway Linda. xxxxxxxxx


Agreed with all of MJ's post, just stay with it - the heath benefits quitting of smoking far outway the the temporary weight gain.

All the best


(unqualified statement above, but I'm sure my doctor would agree :cool:)


Hey guys

i have been worried about the weight thing too and i have put on a few pounds since i stopped

but the best advice someone gave me was to always have a glass of water on the go - always. And sip from it constantly. It fills u up and has no calories and helps everything "keep on moving" through you. So even if you are eating too much well you know....

the other thing was to remember the old Alan Carr thing - the physical need for a cigarette is almost indistinguishable from hunger - the glass of water trick should help

finally you gotta be tough - if you have had the incredible ability to give up smoking then you gotta be tough enough to keep a lid on the snacking too. Good luck to you, it isnt easy but you have already proven how tough you are so you can do it.


And hear endeth the lesson lol :rolleyes:

No seriously thanks Paul hun, your advice as always so welcome! ;)

ha ha glad to see your still around mate - i obviously have too much to say today :D
