Hi. My name is Sarah and today I finally took the plunge and quit smoking after trying to psyche myself up for weeks. I have tried to stop in the past but never managed to make it past a few weeks. I am hoping that if I have support from other people like me who are trying to quit it will make all the difference and give me strength in weak moments. I am also dieting at the moment. I am currently on the weight watchers plan and have lost 10 pounds so far. I still have a long way to go and I'm worried that I might gain weight by quitting smoking. Is it true that you gain weight if you quit? I have heard that smoking speeds up your metabolism and this is why people gain weight when they quit. What have other peoples experiences been? Any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated.
