Subject: RE: BS: Weird Appetite changes....why?
Allan, I think you have your post-cancer former smokers mixed up.

Could have sworn I posted in this thread! I nibbled on chalk as a kid, but my real fondness was for library paste. Heck, it was healthier than lead paint chips!

As to gaining weight after quitting smoking, it isn't just that foods taste better. Smoking surpresses the appetite and also the metabolism. Your body doesn't use food as efficiently.
