Smoking is my biggest vice. Quitting is fairly easy but I gain weight like mad once I quit. I quit for over 6 months cold turkey without any issues but I gained 80 LB without really eating more. I have COPD. If I am overweight I can't breath. Even if I was healthy my breathing would be obstructed with a huge belly, not to mention the back pain.
Nicotine speeds up your metabolism making weight loss very easy. Yup, I am smoking again. My doctor doesn't make sense when we talk. He says I need to quit smoking and lose weight at the same time. Statistics say the average person gains 40 LB when they quit smoking. Even his nurse says he is not being realistic.
"I do not aim with my hand; I aim with my eye. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
