I've been eating all day long I know I cant substitute food for cigs! What to do?
Try drinking lots of very cold water, I also ate frozen fruit. I bought frozen blueberries and frozen cherries and I ate them (use a spoon because they make fingers funny colors. I also ate Sour Patch Kids because they were very sour and they sort of reset my brain. You
can suck on ice chips...lemons work but the are hard on your teeth, not like Sour Patch Kids aren't hard on your teeth. Keep in mind that at the beginning, staying away from cigarettes is your goal....don't spend a lot of time worrying about eating or overeating.
If you are not smoking, you are doing GREAT!
Thanks, I'll check them out.
frozen grapes are good and they're low price right now but only take out what you eat. You cannot refreeze them.
They turn to mush.
Do they come frozen or freeze them when you buy them?

You rinse them and pull them off the stem and freeze them in a little tupperware. You don't have to dry them completely but shake off the excess before you take them off the stem.
And I like the red and black grapes. Probably because all we could get was green that didn't have seeds when we were young.
They sell single gelatins that only have 25 calories. Also single popscicles
I like popsicles and usually have some in the freezer, even now.
Last Monday was my first day quit. It was hard this last weekend not to eat constantly. I am allowing myself the next couple of days, but Friday I am getting back on the "healthy eating" tract that I have been on for a couple of years. I quit last Halloween, but started smoking again mid Sept and then quit again last week. I will drink lots of water and get some fruits, veggies, nuts at the store tomorrow and get them cut up so I can quickly grab them. I also use breath mints. Sucking on one for 5-6 minutes makes it so I don't want to eat for awhile after. Brushing my teeth every time I eat something helps too. I have no doubt I gained a couple lbs during the first couple of weeks last year, but I avoid scales. I did see my doctor a couple weeks before I quit last year and then 3 months later and lost weight. I am hoping for the same results this time. Do what you have to in order to stay smoke free. It will be easier to lose weight in a couple months vs trying to quit smoking again
Wishing you the best
Your story sounds a lot like mine! I'm going to pick up some frozen fruit

I've found Green Tea tends to really curb my appetite. AND it's good for you. The larger the cup, the more the tea, the fuller you feel. Try it. The flavored ones are good, but the regular non flavored tend to curb my appetite more. I ate everything in site the first couple of weeks of my quit. But they were mostly just raw vegetables. Not too exciting, but carrots and celery sticks, etc. do fill you up (give you that "needed roughage") and help to relieve that hand-to-mouth thing without a billion calories in the process. Apples also will help fill you up and ease that gut gnaw. Hold true to your commitment.
Please explain green tea to me. I've tried it often. Is it supposed to taste like cooled down boiled water?
Am I buying the wrong kind, making it wrong? Or just an EXcuse to go back to black tea? I WANT to drink it...it just tastes blah!
Bree19 I am not a fan but my family members all love it...I drank green tea for the first several weeks after I quit smoking because I was afraid that coffee might be a trigger. When I thought about it, I realized that I never smoked inside and I never drank coffee outside so I went back to coffee. I was only able to drink one cup a day after I quit...I USED to drink an entire pot. My reaction to caffeine is entirely different now.
Green tea has less caffeine and a whole lot of antioxidants that are good for you. Me personally I just don't like it I know my friend makes it with the leaves - she said the tea in bags is awful, she also makes sure not to let the water boil, soft rolling bubbles at most and she told me to start by steeping it for 1 min 45 seconds taste it and then steep for an additional 30 seconds until I find the "right" balance for me. I just take a green tea extract capsule with my daily pills and drink lots and lots of water.
Tabbiekat My son says he can make me like it but I have never taken him up on it...he does the soft rolling bubbles and the timed steeping.
So true! I'm not a fan of green tea either. I don't want to give up my
coffee, I drink one cup in am and decaf after lunch and dinner. I have
cravings after meals and i think coffee helps!
Thai Tea for me!
They have green tea that is flavored. Lipton makes an inexpensive, bagged one, but the finer tea companies make a wide variety. Just google it. The plain bagged green teas are rather bitter and I find that helpful for curing cravings - whether they be for cigarettes or food.
Does green tea make green pea?
Only if you eat the leaves instead of boiling them.
