Well im still here and plodding on. I would love to say its getting easier, but its not! Its not so much that im craving for a smoke, its more that i seriously think that i have developed a compulsive eating disorder. I remember before i stopped smoking thinking that i was always either on a diet or eating like a greedy bitch. Well in the 6wks that i 've stopped smoking i've put on a stone and a half! I have never been overweight but im nearly there now. I cannot stop eating, im not just talking about a few extra biscuits here and there, i am seriously eating everything with no self control whatsoever. I was working yesterday doing home visits, i was in a patients kitchen and noticed he had left out half a packet of fags and a few biscuits, i remember looking at them thinking i could just take a ciggy or a biscuit, well i hate to admit it, but i stole 2 biscuits!!!! Feel so bad, would never normally cross my mind. The thing is it was easy to resist his fags.
This is making me so depressed and worn out. I know that most people do put on a few pounds when they stop smoking, but this is beyond a joke. I could just cry. I really dont want to smoke, but it seems the only way to get rid of this horrible compulsion.
Sorry for being all doom and gloom
