Justine's story:
“I knew what to expect when I decided to quit smoking, I’d asked all my friends and every single one of them put on weight when they stopped. 

To be honest, I let myself go a bit, eating for something to do with my hands and, to take my mind off not smoking.  I ate everything I could get my hands on and that was just in between meals! 

You can’t deprive yourself of everything, I can’t anyway.  I’ve stayed away from the cigarettes, but overdone it with food.”

Amrita's story:   
“I stopped smoking on the 1st September 2004 and I put on 12kg [nearly two stone].  Ok, so I don’t smoke any more, but I’ve gone up two sizes!  It’s awful, I was a bit of a snacker already, so my diet hasn’t really changed that much. 

Four weeks ago, I started a high-protein diet.  I stuck to it religiously for two weeks, not a drop of oil, no chocolate and plenty of water, but did I lose a pound?  Did I heck, help!”
