Very well done on reaching Day 3 !!

Don't worry about eating too much, it makes me feel better as I've eaten far too many Parma Violets tonight ;)

Keep up the good work!



Welcome to our club Joanna!

It is very common to eat more in the early days of your quit - I think that most of us have. I've put on over a stone (so not quite house-sized, more of a bungalow).

I think for most people, it's best to get the quit properly under your belt, and then worry about the eating. On the positive side, once you can breathe better, you will be able to exercise more effectively!


Hey, well done, Joanna!

When you give up smoking, your blood sugar drops, so as we have all experienced, you will be continuously hungry!

You will get used to the lower blood sugar level soon enough though - I was only hungry for a couple of weeks and I have actually lost half a stone over the past few weeks! (Probably because I can exercise without keeling over, rather than healthy food choices...) ;)



A week ago at about 3:00 pm I felt "pekish"

3 x pieces kfc + chips

1 x Mini loaf

1 x rounder

typing with one hand eating lays "spring onion" chips @9:16 am after eating a Bannana, apple and my lunch "sarmies" before 8:00am!
