And that is what it would be just an EXcuse! I remember one of the elder's posted a list of EXcuses used to continue smoking. Mine was on the list. Fear of gaining weight. Well I quit smoking and I gained a little weight and I eventually lost a little weight. In fact, I now weigh less than when I first quit smoking. It balanced out but I needed to focus on the quit first. I am here to tell you not to worry because quitting smoking is the beginning of an overall healthier lifestyle. You will get there. One day at a time, one task at a time. With all the crisis going on around us please don't use one of them as an EXcuse to smoke.
