I'm new to quitting smoking...under 9 days, but I have a question about the weight gain. Could it actually be the addiction's effort to get the person back to smoking? i.e. If she gets fat enough...she will light back up.
Ive spent alot of time dealing with alchoholics and drug addicts, this type of self-defeating behavior is common. I just wonder if the weight gain is actually a type of self defeat in some people. Like running your wife off and getting fired, so you have a reason to get drunk.
