    Good for you for trying to make a change! It’s going to be really hard but it will be worth it. Try taking up hobbies and go out more to distract yourself from the cravings. Exercise is really great because it will keep you busy, help you lose weight and releases endorphins which should help fight off those cravings. Another alternative is to stop dieting for the next few weeks until you feel you have gotten control over smoking. It is easier to quit one thing at a time instead of having to worry about two. Tell your friends so they can help motivate you. The most important thing to remember is that YOU are in control. Try not to let yourself give in but if you do don’t be too hard on yourself. Just pick yourself up and try again. Oh also maybe listen to motivational music or read motivational books or movies. Good luck!

    Great!

    Well, first off, you could try taking something to help with the Nicotine cravings. You could see a doctor or just go to a chemist and see what works for you.

    For cutting down on food, just try to keep yourself busy. Distract yourself so that you aren’t tempted to snack. When you do eat, eat healthily, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how.

    Try and do lots of exercise. This will help you lose weight AND help keep your mind off of smoking.

    You could get a stress ball or just *something* to keep your hands busy. (You will be used to holding cigarettes if you smoked for a while)

    Sugar-free chewing gum. Keeps your mouth busy. (helps avoid smoking) But don’t have too much gum, as it makes you feel hungry.

    Sorry if none of this helps you.

    Good luck. Hope you successfully quit smoking! 😀

    Don’t try them at the same time, it’s hard enough dealing with one! I suggest you stop smoking first, and then when you’re really comfortable with that and past the cravings, take off the weight. Don’t forget that you’ll typically put on weight after you stop, some of it will come off but smokers weigh 11 pounds less than non-smoker on average and what comes off will go back on.
