Very well done on the 7 weeks

Try taking up a hobby that keeps your hands and mind busy - if they are busy elsewhere you can"t get the to your mouth!

Good theory.....

Good luck x

Aup Phill, its great to see you on here pal :) and a big well done to you for getting to 7 weeks quit :)

I too am 57 and I started smoking at the age of 13 :o funny cos I think quit a few of us started at around that age !!!!

Yep I think we all put weight on during our quit :o but saying that, just wondered if you do any exercises ?? I've got a rowing machine that helps keep some of the weight off :) speak soon.

Pete :)

You've got too much on your plate to worry about that.
