Ines, Congratulations for putting nicotine down! I'm so proud of you.
You don't have to turn to food and make it a substitute addiction. Our bodies adjust just 5-7 pounds, and you will be able to take that back down later. The main thing is to have a lot of alternatives to eating.
If you have international calling, or want to use internet meetings, nicotine-anonymous.org holds daily meetings in either form. If you are interested in learning more about key principles and tools for living Nic free, look around the website to see what kinds of things are offered. Who knows, maybe there's even a live meeting near you.
You are welcome to get in touch with me for any questions or needs you may have. There are hundreds of people waiting for you to reach out to.

Hi everyone. My name is Ines and I live in the Netherlands. I quit smoking (cold turkey) on april 5th because of pnemonia. I have gotten better after about 6 days of antibiotics and prednison. Using this meds in combination with no more smoking created a new battle for me (food) so here I am: fresh no-smoker who is counting the calories, (1500 daily) and trying to burn at least 400 calories 2-3 times a week doing cardio sessions, taking zumba & sh' bam group lessons.
