Since yesterday it has been 5 months since I quit cigarettes (so long as you don't count the little fall off the wagon when I visited Amsterdam in October). I have not used a Vape or any other quitting aids, I've just gone cold turkey. I know that my health is obviously much better, but I have gained about 6 kilos and have had to go out a size in trousers. This is not good. At the moment I am trying to monitor my food intake more strictly as I want to get back to my pre-quitting weight. My skin is much clearer and apparently I look younger. I still don't feel I've beaten it fully - it still requires vigilance.
