is a naughty girl...
Every year I try and give something up for lent and this year I decided to do smoking eek! So I have done just over 2.5 weeks and not finding it that bad. Has anyone else given anything up for lent or tried giving up smoking while doing CD.

NB the nictoine replacement things can have sugar in them! (found that out the hard way!)

you can all do this, be carefull as i put on weight,but if you stay focused you can do it, if i can do it so can you xx


112lbs lost - 28 to go!
from what i understand it isn't the lack of nicotine that makes you gain weight when you quit - it's because smoking is an appetite suppressant so when you stop your appetite increases - you may find that your lucky as the ketosis takes this issue away, it's just the boredom/habit snacking and mental hunger that may be difficult! but wish you heaps of luck hun! if you can give up food you can give up this! :)
2.5 weeks is great. My OH went cold tuckey at new year so I kind of know how hard it can be. Keep going your doing great. Also well done to Duncan
oh no why do you say you found out the hard way in regards to smoking replacement products?

I stopped smoking and 10 week ago and start ssing yesterday but an using patches, is this gonna screw up my weight lost?

thanks in advance.
