As much as I'd love to quit...

the thought of piling weight back on is definitely deterring me so far. I'm going through 20-30 cigs a day, and as a tool to curb appetite, they're top of the list (for myself anyway). I've reached a point in my diet where I've lost most of my appetite anyway, but I'm worried that quitting smoking will start it back up again and ruin my progress. Anyone have any experience with this?

As silly as it seems, I think I'd rather stay that bit more unhealthy and financially poorer than undo the work I've put in so far with losing weight. Unless I was absolutely sure that I wouldn't start getting the munchies back from quitting. Although, I have every intention of quitting once I'm down to a more ideal weight. I'm really impressed that you guys can take on two REALLY hard tasks at the same time. Both quitting and dieting are a feat in and of themselves. Kudos.

i have quit now not so long ago, just on my second proper week, and have had a slip up.
the way i looked at it myself was that once i lost all the weight or most of it there is no way on earth i would have quit as this is my second time battling the bulge. and i didnt stop smoking after the first time, and still got the munchies by loosing sight of my goal and achievements.
so after two weeks of doing well on sw i just decided that it was the right time for me, and that there would be some set backs along the way no matter how hard i tried.
the way i look at it for myself now is one step at a time, but all steps in the right direction.
you have to be in the right frame of mind i think, as 3 weeks ago i would have laughed if you would have told me i would be doing both:rolleyes:

Yeah, it's definitely impressive. I'm pouring all of my willpower into not throwing my bacon onto some toast at the moment. I don't think I have enough to spare toward quitting smoking, too. Besides, I'm like a bear with a sore arse when I go for more than an hour without a smoke, so couple that with not being able to indulge in some Doritos cuisine and I'll probably have fits of rage. :p

Good luck on that double venture, though. Nice to see it's actually doable.

hey lgd
you sound like what i used to be like before when i tried to give up.
the family used to go and hide in the furtherst corners of the house, as i was just not capable of socialising, never mind saying please or thank you, was more grunting move or i bite your head off.
i really dont know whats different this time, i still crave my cigs
badly at points, but the worst i seem to be doing to the family is locking myself in kitchen with mp3 player blasting my ear drum out sucking on liquerice and barking at them when they dare enter my domaine
a far cry from before, and a rare ocurence too.
i would like to say yes it is doable, but am not tempting fate and will report back once fully past cravings:D

you do what feels right for YOu
dont let anyone tell you else, i believe anyone is best at the decisions made for one self in own time
