I know. I'd love to quit but I know a lot of people have gained weight because of quitting. And it seems nearly impossible.  I wish I would have never started.

I recently quit (new years). I had been a smoker for many, many years. What helped me quit was getting a eco-water vapor-cigarette. It helped keep me from eating in place of smoking. You can get ones with nicotine to help make it easier. Trust me its worth the quit. I hadn't realized i couldn't take a full breathe until three weeks of not smoking. Keep your head up, don't give in and you will do amazing. Best of luck!!

I quit smoking for about more than a year now. You should try quitting it too. Not only it is bad for your health, but it is also not advisable especially when you are into work out. You will feel difficulty in breathing and you can't perform your workout plan well

I was a heavy smoker, two packs a day. I cold turkey quit three years ago and haven't looked back. I did try the vape cigarettes but in the end I realized I could overcome the oral fixation with mental strength. I did gain wait the first few months after quitting, but after that I was able to control my appetite.

Good luck with quitting, I'm certain the community looks forward to hearing your success story.

I quit 6 months ago, haven't wanted one since then. But I do know it is hard to get the motivation.

I was...and gross as it sounds looooved to smoke, it was my crutch, I used it as a reward for a job well done, a good run...not good blah blah but believe me, quit baby!!! I've been totally quit for 15 months and it is seriously so much better than smoking! It's still a battle but for many reasons well worth the will! Smell great, don't tire as quickly, don't cough up a lung after a hard run or wo, save tons of $$$...yes you will gain some weight but after a few months it will subside with the cravings and is easy weight to lose, drink a lot if water (lemon water works wonders) and do something physical when u want to smoke...quick set of crunches or push ups or lunges, it will combat the crave and weight gain! Good luck, mind over matter...will is a powerful tool when you are ready to quit the habit!

I was a smoker.  It's a battle I fought for 26 years. But then I heard about a book called "Easy way to quit smoking" by Allen Carr. I finished the book, smoked my final cigarette and had so much as a drag since then. It has been amazing! What used to be torture (Being without a smoke) turned into pleasure. What little withdrawals I felt made me laugh. I know it sounds crazy but it's true. I found the book free on the internet in pdf format.  Best thing that's ever happened to me.

Try to slowly cut back on how many you are smoking in a day. I have been smoking since I was 13 yrs old and smoking almost two packs a day, and have gone to under four cigs. So if you smoke half a pack, when you open your new pack, take the other half of and put them in a plastic bag and in the freezer. Then only smoke that half pack for the day. Slowly working down to less and less.

I quit January 13 2013. That's also the day I started working out lost 30 lbs then found out in August I was pregnant with our 3rd. I would've quit the moment I found out I was prego but with this one I didn't start back up after he was born. It's been over a little over a year and I feel great! I just need to lose that 30lbs again :-\

I quit after smoking for 8-9 years. I tried a few times and failed every time. What I did was switch to the e-cig. At first it feels like it's not curbing your cravings, but the more you use it, the less you'll crave a real cig, and you can eventually lower the nicotine dose to nothing. I -did- gain weight, but only because I developed a wicked sweet tooth. Trying to get a handle on it, and working out more. :) good luck!

I stopped smoking a dozen years ago or so. Then 4 years ago I had to go to court to get my divorce went twice. I bummed a smoke from a friend that's all it took. I'm at 7-8/day. It sucks. I will go with out food and drink coffee so I can buy a pack of smokes. I'm GOING to quit I have to. I will not let that beat me! I'm better than that. It makes no sense to exercise to feel good but smoke and keep putting another nail in my coffin.

Don't avoid quitting because you're afraid of weight gain. That is just a line your nicotine addiction is telling your brain so you have an excuse to keep smoking.

I read "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" and have not smoked for  2 years now. I didn't gain weight either.

Whether you gain weight or not, quitting is the best thing you can possibly do. It's so gross, and you're PAYING MONEY to lying manipulative companies to poison your body with toxins and your mind with lies.

I was a smoker.  As of today I have not had so much as a drag for 29 days and I've never felt better. I was introduced to a book by Allen Carr called "easy way to stop smoking" and it was! The book claimed to make it a pleasurable experience and it really was! All you have to do is read the book and follow the instructions and you can be freed like me and millions of others have been. I feel like I've been given a whole new life.

I first quit again back in December. Smoke free since then so far. I used an e-cig and champix. Lowered my nicotine dose I'm at nothing and haven't touched the esmoke since half way through January. I did the most incredible thing the other day as well. I ran the most I've ever ran in my adult life. But anyways as for weight gain, I've put on 10lbs... but that was my reason for quitting. It wasn't even until I began taking whey protein and watching what I put into my body

Also meant December 1st
