    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!)

    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! :)
