Someone one out there must have a few secrets they can share with those of us who have had a tremendous increase in our weight due to the quit. I think our meters should include a count on the pounds gained since quitting.
This is just terrible!!
I used to think about food, or what to eat, by maybe noon or later every day, always skipping breakfast, sometimes missing lunch completely if I was busy with one project or another.
NOW, I wake up in the morning and within minutes of rising, am scavenging in the kitchen for something to shove into my face!!
Could it be I have substituted ingesting food for inhaling cigs?
I know Jane and Clams quit with me around the same time period, and have seen them mention the problem as well.
There must be a secret to keep every donut, cupcake and cookie in town from finding it's way to my mouth........help, they are lining up as we speak!!
After 52 years of the nasty habit I am now: Three months, five days, 10 hours, 2 minutes and 57 seconds. 1908 cigarettes not smoked, saving $455.90. Life saved: 6 days, 15 hours, 0 minutes.
If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you.
This is the principal difference between dog and man.
Oh ya...other times I've quit I maintained my normal healthy diet,
simply ate lots of carrot sticks and other healthy things to
compensate. This time, it's bad stuff that I'm embarrassed by but keep
eating anyway. I was thin before, could stand to gain a few pounds,
but not over 20! I'm a vegetarian & have always done everything in a
very healthy way (well, except for smoking chemicals wrapped in
paper). Now I can't fit into any of my summer slacks! I know how to
eat healthy; I just don't desire the healthy things!
