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.
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 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 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 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 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!
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 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 I stopped drinking alcohol for 17 days now and I am losing weight. I lOst about 3 kilos in this period. I also had some stress but my experianse with stress did not show weight lose I. The past. Can that be a reason of this weight lose? Or is this something I need to go to the doctor for?
Avatar m tn I'm not a health professional but have read a lot of reports from my own stress tests, and it sounds like you have a strong heart. An ejection fractions of 70% is something those of us with heart problems would embrace. However, you were given a big warning. Your family history suggests heart problems will visit you, especially because you smoke and are considered obese. I'ts not easy to quit, I know, but certainly it's possible. Losing weight is tough, also.
Avatar f tn  Continuing to smoke during pregnancy harms your baby. Quitting smoking does not put extra stress on your baby. Quitting smoking is one of the best things that you can do for your health and your baby’s health during development in the womb and after it is born. By quitting smoking, you will be protecting your infant from the dangers of secondhand smoke and reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Myth #6: Smoking fewer cigarettes during pregnancy is good enough.
Avatar f tn If you are experiencing ED symptoms, see your doctor right away for diagnosis and treatment options. Treatment may include lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking or losing weight; medications such as phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (such as sildenafil [Viagra], tadalafil [Cialis], vardenafil [Levitra]) or penile injections; surgery to correct blockages in the veins that drain the penis; or a penile implant.

1182186 tn?1264681880 Since you are also starting a weight loss program you might want to wait a bit before quitting. Why not concentrate on the one thing and then perhaps you can prepare yourself for the quit by reading some articles at It's an excellent site to learn about addiction, triggers, all the answers to any questions you might have. Okay, Chantix....comsidering your age, why not try cold turkey first. Chantix and youth do not mix.... I used it to quit and it worked for me.
1163991 tn?1449747741 After quitting smoking how long did it actually take you to enjoy life again? Today (after 17 days of not smoking) it seems to me that I enjoyed life more as a smoker. What do I have now? - eating, chewing gum ... and more eating ... I was just wondering, when I will enjoy life again ...
Avatar f tn Smoking actually increases your risk of developing thyroid disease. Every link you find that lists risk factors for developing a thyroid disease lists smoking as a risk factor. I say that as a smoker of 35 years now. I can't explain any of what you have experienced other than to say I feel it is coincidental. It's possible that stopping smoking stressed your system to the point it threw off your hormones.
1316053 tn?1279509497 Hi everyone, I tried taking CHAMPIX (not sure if this is the same - I am from Australia) I didn't finish all of the tablets, due to the side affects, but wish I did, as I am smoking again. I had a funny feeling in the head, and SEVERE bloating, and I couldn't handle it anymore, as I have IBS, and that is bad enough.
Avatar m tn Lifestyle choices like excessive smoking, being overweight and avoiding exercise are other possible causes. In such cases quitting smoking, losing excessive weight, and increasing physical activity may help some men regain sexual function. In your case, diabetes may be one of the reasons and you may need to change your insulin dose along with diet control as well.
Avatar f tn That being said, here is my problem On many occasions after I smoke several cigarettes, mentally I start feeling anxiety and the thoughts in my head become faster and louder.. ( I do not have a mental illness) This only happens after smoking..I know the easy fix is quit but the addiction currently has a hold of me...I seriosly feel like I am losing my mind in those moments..completely and am wondering what is doesnt usually happen after one cigarette but after a couple...
Avatar f tn Congratulations on your upcoming motherhood. Quitting smoking cold turkey will not harm your baby. I do know that I am repeating myself here, but here it goes: I understand that smoking is extremely addictive, however there are certain things we do for our kid that are very hard, and one of them is being pregnant, taking care of our bodies while pregnant and nursing (and I am not even talking about giving birth!). That is only the start of a difficult life of a parent.
