    Right due to being made redundant I've decided that next week im going to give up the cigarettes. I know that being home all day and then the stress of not having any money/bills/rent etc etc that i will end up smoking twice what i do now.

    Im going to go on Champix which will handle the cravings however i know from giving up smoking before that it leads to increased metabolism which increases appetite. One thing i dont want to do is surrender potential lung cancer/heart disease etc etc to getting a (bigger) tyre round my middle.

    I have already decided on gym and and swimming to keep me active and whatnot but i what i need to know is what i can snack on thats healthy.

    Dont say fruit as im not a big fruit eater plus i wont have the money to buy loads of it.

    Im already thinking popcorn but i want something other than that.

    Advice/ideas please.

    Regards

    im on day 46, after smoking 15/20 a day for the last 10yrs, and i've found drinking plenty of water helps alot, take each day as it comes and half the time when you think you are hungry, truth is you're only thirsty, and i'd get into fruits instead of pop corn, fruits are cheap and good for you, i know you said your skint at the momment, but if the chance comes up id also avoid any alcohol for the first few weeks..good luck

    I read this about 1 year and 3 months ago -

    And haven't smoked a single thing since! I went from 30 a day to nothing, I know it may seem a bit too good to be true but check out some of the reviews, Its probobly the best shot your gonna have at quitting.

    Good luck!
