  • Well done Joe stick with it hun. Some people do say day3 week3 month3 are tuff. It will pass and you will be much stronger because you beat it. 3 weeks is good work.xxxxx

  • thanks for the ords of encouragement, feel better and the urge has passed thanks to terry's chocolate orange...lol

  • Hope you are feeling better, Joanne!! The poison should be almost out of our system completely.... so now the mind stuff keeps the withdrawal feelings going...... my hypnosis cd is really helping with that. My little one was challenging me as well today..... have to admit I drank a glass of wine :) Talk soon.... 18 days for both of us!!!!

  • Hi Joe

  • your very lucky.linda...never have abeen above 10 stone in me life or below 9 but at 5ft 2....i am now 9stone 11...so it shows....was 9st 6 just before going on champix..so 5 pounds scince end of jan...not good...lol like my skinny jeans but dont look nice with a muffin top

    i have 3 kids to..well 3 boys had all three within four years.....must have been bonkers......

  • I'm having the same problem. I gained so much weight all of a sudden and can't fit into any jeans! I'm 5'2" as well. soooooooooooo upset...I could smoke! Just kidding. I got my nails done, changed the colour of my hair and am feeling a little like myself however I'm not happy with gaining so much weight so fast.

  • see if we where 5ft 10....we wouldnt notice...but at 5ft 2 every little ounce we can feel lol....

    yep its the weight thing for me...to the point of obsession...and i have never worried about my weight before....

    just spoke to my husband on the phone about 5 minutes ago he works for a football club, he was speaking to the doc at his work today becasue of my whinging...and he said go for brisk walks just to give the metabolism a kick start...and even if we have eaten the same as we did when smoking becasue our metabolism has slowed down(as cogs speed it up)...we will put on a tiny bit of weight....between about 4 and 10 pounds he said...it should settle after a few months..but a good brisk walk for half an hour to get the pulse raised will kick start, fingers crossed eh x

  • Hi Joanne & Free :D :D

    Wish I was an inch or 6 taller onlt 5'1 but what the hell let's just be glad we've kicked the fags into touch eh the few extra pounds we can sort later no probs if we can quit we can do anything

    Love

    Take it from a 5ft 10 person, it does show!! lol

    I am feeling so hungry all of the time that I am really worried about the amount of weight I will be piling on over the next couple of months. I am grazing on as much fruit as possible but nothing fills me up it would seem.

    We are popping to the local leisure centre over the weekend to book in for our gym induction so with any luck should try and keep some pounds off.

  • read the small print

    thought of a cigarette,then i read the small print,it wont be as good as the fantasy,the next five million will be vile, you'll wish you had'nt had it.

    so i said nahhh.:p day 17 for me want to reach 18 . missing my co-dependant buddy but he was killing me and was always just taking. i'll get over it...........

    mashx

    health happiness and healing to us all.:)
