I just quit smoking (well, sort of - except for Fridays
) on Aug. 14, about a week before I found out about SLD. I am on the patch. So, its been about 3 weeks, minus 3 days mixed in.
I am sooooo hoping that the SLD will help control the weight gain from quiting smoking, and I'd be happy to stay the same weight - though losing would be great.
Its taken a little time to build up to 2T at a time, and I felt AS for the first time yesterday. I need to work on the timing with work.
I don't really miss it, but find the habit kicking in at times when I used to smoke, and I can handle that, but after a glass or two of wine (on Fridays), I give in. I don't feel that I'm a smoker again after that, I just took a break from quitting. I think I'm going to be on the patch a long time.
Maybe I should pick up this the Carr book.
This board is great - so much helpful info, and such nice people. Thanks!
