I am taking Chantix to quit smoking. I'm on week 5 and the smoking urges are gone but how do I control my weight? I'm still at the point where I need something to do besides smoke and eating seems to be winning.
Eat the right stuff. I quit more then 5 years ago now, and let me tell ya - it isn't the Chantix that's making you hungry, it's your body's return to a more natural state (ciggies suppress hunger, and when you smoke all day...).
Celery sticks, you'll lose weight eating them. Same with carrot sticks. Chew gum. Start working out. You know, all the usual advice. But it works! Congrats.
