Have you been quit for a few weeks or a month? Are you starting to wonder how long you’re going to continue to have these cravings? Does it seem like the nicotine has got to be long gone, but you’re still having these craves? And do you still seem to think about smoking (or not smoking, as the case may be) all the time (or a lot of the time)? Do you wonder when that will stop?
Have you quit smoking and stayed free for a while, but all of a sudden find that you’re starting to eat everything in sight at certain times of the day (or even all day long)? Have you been doing everything you can to live as healthy a lifestyle as possible now that you’ve quit, but now you feel like your eating is getting out of control?
I ran across an article today on Psychiatry Online (see excerpt below) that suggests that the reason why many smokers fail to quit is that they don’t get professional help.
