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!!

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 ;)

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!

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> ?
