Nutty, yours is a heartwarming success story - well done!

I quit in 1976 but still get a real kick out of having done so; it's one of the most rewarding things I ever did. If I'd known how rewarding it would be, I'm sure I would have quit much earlier but that's something you simply can't get across to those who still smoke.

Incidentally, I don't believe the weight gain is necessarily a bodily response to quitting - I just enjoy food and drink too much! My advice on that FWIW would be to have a blood test and see if your blood sugar level is high - a great incentive to lose a little weight.

cheers, Terry
