You'll be saving enough to ride that bike even more!!!!!!! Go for it!!! Eating healthy will prevent gaining too much weight!! It is normal to gain a little when you quit smoking. But it is sooooo worth it!!! Great decision you took !!!! Have fun riding that bike!!!

I quit 7 months ago. Exercise got me through Smile And because I exercised so much, I didn't gain weight I actually continued to lose. I never think about smoking any more except when someone is smoking near me and how gross it is!

I quit smoking the weekend before Memorial day.. I have been a non smoker for nearly a month now.. The first 2 weeks were kinda rough, I have done well and what has really helped me this go round is they just passed a law that no one can smoke in bars or restaurants. I still want to smoke but I am not going to, just like I want to eat mindlessly and dont do that either. It is just another new healthy me habit that is a part of my life now. Smile

I'm one of those weird people who can buy a pack, keep it in the freezer and make it last 6 weeks then not smoke for 5 months. My anti-smoke became the exercise itself. If I smoke I can't get as much oxygen, I get winded and feel like I haven't worked as hard as I know I can, despite the fact that I'm huffing and puffing by the end. Endorphins feel so much better than nicotine! Very Happy

I trained for and ran a 20k race and continued to do sports after that as part of my diet. All while smoking. I'm quitting now and hope it'll make the sports part of my diet easier. Hopefully it won't make me want to eat more cause then I'm really done for. Why do I have to work so HARD to make myself healhy!! Hehe. Next thing to tackle is nailbiting. Anyway, wish me luck cause I sooo wanna smoke!!

Can't stand the taste of ACV
You can get used to the taste, but it takes time. I always use chilled water and gulp it fast, then drink another glass of chilled water to chase it.

BREAKFAST MEALS
This does sound good! I used to skip breakfast everyday. I had 3 excuses. 1, I didn't want to get up any earlier then I had to. 2, I was to lazy to cook anything. I would rather go hungry and 3, it ...

OA has helped me a lot. Last year, I worked 10 of the 12 steps with my sponsor. I also lost about 50 pounds. OA works.
