    eating

    at day 220, no slip-ups so far but i wish i would stop eating so much. i have cut coke (of which i was consuming around 1 1/2L a day) completely out of my intake since quitting and aim to have in excess of 2L of water a day (and achieve this quite easily). i am only 163cm tall and have put on more weight than i am happy about... any tips/ hints about this are welcome :)

    Just wondering if anyone started to cough up some pretty gross stuff after they quit smoking? I never coughed while smoking and now - 3 weeks in- I have been. Is this a common occurrence?

    i have 'tried' to quit smoking before where i only lasted between smokes, my will power to begin was non-existent. i started on Champix and my behaviours changed without needing to use any form of cognition, i guess the 'craving' to smoke just disappeared. i have found that the most challenging part now that i have been smoke free for 18 days is that learned beahviour response to certain situatio...
