You are working on two addictions at the same time and it isn't easy but you can do this. Exercise is the key; Walking is a good start. Welcome to the group.

Welcome. My doctor said if e-cigarettes help you quit smoking and keep the weight in-line he saw no problem with e-cigarettes

Welcome! The best tip I was given when I was quitting smoking was to buy some cinnamon sticks and, when the urge to smoke hit, hold one and inhale through it just like I would a cigarette, deep and slow. It works and satisfies the hand-to-mouth habit that is a big part of gaining weight while quitting. You can do this!

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates
