Avatar f tn Congratulations on your newfound sobriety! Glad your feeling well. As for the insomnia, it will soon work itself out depending on how long you were drinking. The anxiety goes with the territory and shouldn't last too long. Have you looked up Ativan or has your Doctor or pharmacist informed you about it? Read the information sheet. Be careful.
644974 tn?1312758070 But if quitting smoking means putting on some extra weight, who cares!!! You quit smoking!!! That is considered the hardest addiction to kick! So congrats again, and dont worry about the weight gain! :) I am very proud of you! I haven't been able to manage to quit, but I am still cutting back.
Avatar n tn t worry, this is absolutely normal, a single pounf is not that much. Bear in mind, that weight gain after quitting smoking does not last forever. So it is good you try to reduce your calories intake. 2000 calories are fine to maintain your weight, as far as I understood from your post :) Good luck! And keep tracking your weight just for safe!
Avatar f tn The whole pregnancy is different and im so emotional and i think that has doubled since ive not been smoking. My fiance still smokes but tries to not do it around me.
Avatar f tn I was a big smoker also when I found out I was pregnant I stopped at 10 weeks after I stopped a gained alotta weight tho smh I'm not sure what u can do because I went cold turkey but there are support groups u can call and they will help u
Avatar f tn Congratulations on quitting smoking! One of the biggest issues with smoking during pregnancy is low birth weight babies. You've stopped at a time when babies really start picking up their weight. That occurs over the last several weeks, so you are giving your baby a good chance of picking up weight and being born at a more healthy weight.
1738455 tn?1310867954 I've been a smoker for 20 years now... and 26 days ago, I just quit smoking "cold turkey" do I expect any side-effects on the abrupt stoppage? I am regularly exercising (Bike and run) almost everyday and I am on a diet too when I quit the cigarettes... Meanwhile, just an information for those who would like to quit: "The only way that I found effective for me to quit smoking is the Diet... after meticulously eating only healthy foods...
Avatar n tn I agree, I think weight gain is preferred to smoking. Congrats on quitting! Also on loosing so much weight before you got pregnant. Whatever you gain now you can loose later. Your weight gain so far probably is on the high side for having started at 197. But if your blood sugar is okay then I would say keep doing what you're doing. You're 28 weeks, so have you gotten your results back from you gestational diabetes test yet? I would use that as a guide.
Avatar f tn Well, hormones are wacky so never say never but it is more likely a rapid weight gain. 20 pounds in 90 days is a lot very quickly. I would up the exercise and try to soothe yourself some way orally so you don't eat (gum, chew on straws, etc.). Congrats on being smoke free! AWESOME!!! That's not easy to do so good for you!
Avatar n tn Lifestyle choices like excessive smoking, being overweight and avoiding exercise are possible causes. In such cases quitting smoking, losing excessive weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function. Please get it evaluated from a urologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

In such cases quitting smoking, losing excessive weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function. Other serious causes are neurogenic disorder (spinal cord and brain injuries), certain drugs like anti-depressants or nicotine cavernosal disorders, ageing, kidney failure, smoking, and psychological causes. Several laboratory tests can help to confirm diagnosis.

Avatar m tn i see a lot of pp they smoking like me (i use too) and they never losing weight, i restart smoking and losing everything , why?but the thing really is annoying is this nausea , probably now i know , why i was feel very week the beginning on this week , eating very little (because the cigarette) but now i eat i little more but the nausea kill me . any suggestion?
Avatar n tn since quitting smoking is so stressful in the first place, it seems like that would make anxiety worse, rather than make it better.
Avatar m tn Could the pain in the solar plexus related to the weight-gain, exercise, coughing and not smoking? I have also had a LOT of acid reflux lately and am under a HUGE amount of stress...I wonder if I have an ulcer too? Anyhow, any feedback would be great!
127596 tn?1210922622 m absolutely amazed at the night-and-day difference between the effects smoking - and not smoking - have on my sinuses. After a day or two of not smoking, I can breathe all day, every day, without any congestion. It's incredible. Definitely a plus. I have about a 50% hearing loss in my left ear; it's from a culmination of loud music and myriad head traumas. Anyway, since some of my hearing is gone, I've had a very keen sense of smell for years now.
Avatar n tn but it can be manageable. If you smoke, you should stop, quitting smoking is the thing you can do for your lungs. If you are heavy, losing weight would help...if you need to put on pounds (some COPD'ers have problems gaining weight), gaining would be to your advantage. Remain as active as you can (with your doctor's blessing of course), enrolling in a pulmonary rehab program is also beneficial (you are taught how to breathe correctly while exercising, nutrition is also stressed).

Avatar f tn Why don't u do one of those e cigarettes, that helped my husband to quit after 20 years of smoking, or can u do the patch or gum?
Avatar n tn I am pretty much 120 pounds overweight now, and I was actually quite skinny 6 years ago. I believe now that I have become a severe food addict. Well, I actually think it's not so much the food, but whatever "reward" my brain gives me from fat, salty, heavy foods.
Avatar f tn I was trying to lose weight before, the weight came on when the dr put me on prozac 10 years ago, then I went off and now am on celexa (for anxiety) and seroquil (to sleep), those two seemed to put the weight on, then with the quitting smoking, does it ease up and will I get the energy I have heard about soon, I'm sure if I feel better I will move more, which should help with the weight loss, please help as I am totally embarrassed by all this weight. Menopause isn't helping either.
Avatar f tn i was wondering if i used the patch for quitting smoking if it would rev up my metabolism again or if there is a diet pill to increase met, i dont need for app sup. just get a met. i am thinking of going back to smoking because i felt healthier when i smoked and was 30 lbs less. i also work out on the wii for 30 min a day with out losing in fact i am gaining wt the only meds im taking is mirapex. i was on topamax and still didnt lose any weight.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if this is a common adverse effect of quitting smoking? And if that is what it is, what can I do to deal with it? I've been drinking tons of water and started and exercise program but it doesn't seem to be helping. Will it go away on it's own, or should I go to the doctor? Additionally, I had heard that when you quit smoking it was common for a strong increase in appetite and weight gain.
