I'm on day 6 of my journey and am finding that I am constantly hungry. When I feel start to feel hungry I drink water, my water intake had tripled, but I'm not thirsty, I'm starving. Does this stop? I'm trying to eat fruit and other healthy stuff but the volume will catch up very soon. Advice please.
I came across an article that was geared towards quitting addictions in general and nutrition. I believe nutrition was a helpful tool I used in my early days of quitting. Not only did it help physically, but it was a commitment to a "lifestyle" change that supported my endeavour of escaping smoking for good. Here's the article:

Can anyone explain withdrawal symptoms please
I was a long term (40 yrs), heavy smoker (50 plus daily), attempting Champix for the 4th time. This time, instead of giving up after a week I persevered to let my body get used to & settle with some side effects which encouraged me to continue.
