I have now stopped for 3 weeks and very proud of myself after 42 years habit. However, I am putting on weight although I am only eating 1000-1200 calories per day. I have read that water extension is a problem of giving up but wondered if anyone else had any pearls of wisdom. I know that weight gain is my biggest fear/hurdle. Also I am suffering from loads of wind (which is embarrassing) - anyone else suffering from this?
