I *can* tell you, however, that drugs are not the best way to lose weight
; because, although you may lose weight
on the phentermine, chances are great that you will gain it all back as soon as you stop the drug. I, too, would be hesitant to take a drug like that if I were just coming down from addictions like you are.
It sounds like you are eating to keep yourself busy --- where you would normally smoke a cigarette, you are satisfying that "hand to mouth" impulse with food.
