    I don’t know about your appetite having grown, but I do know that smoking increases metabolism because of the nicotine in the cigarettes. When you stop, your metabolism drops so you gain weight. The same thing happens with meth, but the chemical reason is different.

    It seems that smoking supresses the appetite. I’ve known a few people that smoke, and they don’t eat that much, ebcause the ciggs make it so they aren’t hungry. Not sure exactly what it is about the ciggs that does it, but I know that that is the general reason.

    smoking suppresses ur appetite and it also makes things taste odd. so when u quit u want to eat more cuz ur hungry and it tastes better. also some ppl try to replace their smoking addiction with food.

    Nicotine is a stimulant and stimulants increase metabolism and decrease appetite, which is why for example speed freaks are so thin. When you stop smoking you lose that effect and your appetite comes back.
