I know that when most people quit smoking, their appetite increases and they eat more for the oral fixation, cure of boredom/not smoking, and food tastes better. But not for me.
I've lost 3-4 pounds this week, my first week of not smoking. I just don't have the desire to eat really. I'm not hungry. It could be the Chantix, which can cause taste distortion. It could be because of the excessive coughing, which has always caused loss of appetite for me (when coughing on bronchitist etc).
It could be the Chantix and nicotine withdrawal causing irritability coupled with my pet peeve of hating hearing people eat (specially at work). It makes me sick to my stomach to hear people crunch on chips and crap and junk food. It makes me not want to eat.
I made myself have a Coke and peice of pizza today and it's probably all I'll eat. I have no energy. I was up till 4 a.m. coughing my head off and gagging. I'm so tired.
