I am finding in my process of quitting smoking that exercise is VERY beneficial to stopping or at least delaying the cravings. Plus, it helps with the depression that sometimes comes along with quitting and which I experience. I was actually smiling while exercising!!! SO I suggest that when you have an urge to smoke to pop in a work-out video, take a walk or dance to music...you'll feel better and you'll ward off weight gain at the same time!View Thread
My husband has been using the electronic cigarette, and within 3 days he has cut down from 1 pack a day habit to only 5-6 cigarettes a day! That's in just the last 3 days! It is helping him tremendously...he has smoked for 17 years.View Thread
