    Get a bag of those mini Snickers and have one of those instead after meals. You have to substitute the "treat".

    Congrats. The longer you go without - the easier it gets. I quit smoking back in 1988/30 years ago.

    A friend who quit used to have Tootsie Roll pops to fend off the urge.....

    Congrats man, if you go back now it's out of choice you're over the addiction for sure! I've been quit since 1988, don't quite understand why I don't have a new Tahoe sitting in my driveway from all the money I've saved.

    I switched from cigarettes to pipe tobacco and cigars, that helped me slow down the amount I was smoking and it was better than the cigarettes. Then I could eventually give it up altogether.

    Stay on that wagon! I'm a couple of weeks shy of five years myself.

    Do you still want them?

    Congrats man. Quitting smoking is the hardest thing I have ever done and I graduated from SERE school. I crave the things every flipping day. Keep fighting it.

    Congrats, I'm on year 10. I put on quite a lot of weight compulsively snacking after I stopped, which took a long time to beat:oops: Hopefully you've avoided that!

    So glad I never picked up this habit--I've heard it's incredibly difficult to kick, and it's just nasty. Congrats to you!

    and this is why so many gain weight from quitting smoking...i was no different...i gain at least 25 pounds...but i also started lifting weights...help curtail the craving and the weight gain all didnt go to the gut...some did...i gained very fast...i was eating so much!
