    Just checking in to see how that quit is going? How are the craves? I hope they are letting up. Just try and deep breath when they come and ride the tide. They will pass.

    Hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.

    Thank you for considering me a friend. I am adding you to my friend's list too. I agree with Geri that multiple mini meals throughout the day are healthier than the 3 square gut busters. However; weight issues are secondary to me. My main concern is staying off the cigs.

    Hi and welcome to classy quitters!
    It's great you are keeping a food journal. SP has a great nutrition page where you can plan and track meals.

    Also, 6 small meals during the day is better than 3 regular meals.. Keep fruits and veggies on hand at all time!!!!!!!!

    I used Chantix also and have been smoke free going on 4 months and I too find I crave a cig now and then. That urge will be with us always and we have to fight it with all we've got. We delivered babies....... we can stay smoke free !!!!!!!!!! WE ARE WOMEN LOL LOL LOL

    You hang in there kiddo.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog! I just have to wait it out. I was reading your page and great job on your choice to quit smoking that is awesome. Unfortunately the weight does start to creep up. I met a nurse that quit and she didn't want to gain weight she had sugar free hard candies on hand. Happy be-lated birthday.
