One thing i have noticed is - because i have broken the habit of smoking other habits have been dropped aswell-i have stopped biting my nails!!! i have looooong talons-to scratch yer backs hehe!!

  • been a naughty girl for far too long!!;)

    I believe one can still be naughty as a on smoker :p

  • Hi shabba, good to hear you're doing well! Definitely encouraging to us noobs :)

    That's interesting about stopping biting your nails, I'm really bad with mine (nearly down to the first knuckle haha). Did it just eventually fade away or did you make a conscious effort to stop it?

    Hope you're still keeping that lovely figure in trim too ;)

  • hi chuds

    no i just stopped biting them-didnt realise until i scratched myself!!! i must have bitten my nails when gagging for a fag when in meetings, pubs,flying ect ect, but now that urge has gone the nails have grown-yipee!

    hey!!! lost 2 pounds too-but want to keep the cuuuuurves to be honest!!! need chocolate hehe

    youre coming along nicely too chuds well done matey!!!;) hope youre feeling strong and positive x:)

  • I have found that I am no longer constantly fidgeting when in the car in traffic (I never smoked in the car, so on long journeys would be itching to get out) or in meetings etc.

    I don't agree with the purity thing either.... plenty of options to be naughty now that the energy are so high

  • I know when I quit when I was in my twenties, I actually lost weight. I put in on to start with but I stopped picking at food when I stopped smoking. I think I used to use food to get me through the working day (when I couldn't smoke).

    Once I had stopped smoking, I didn't need to pick at food either.

    I hope I can lose the weight I am putting on at the moment as I get further into my quit!

  • Hi jerry lee!

    Jerry, I am hoping this is what is wrong with me. I was forever at the vending machine / coffee bar / canteen at work when smoking and hope this wa all replacement fags. Don't feel the need to be snacking so much now so hoping that I will actually end up slimmer than I was as a smoker once I get the exercise back up to speed.

    Do you have a time frame that you can remember <clutching at straws> ?
