The problem is your mouth is used to the cigarettes. Without thinking, people just eat. If this is what's happening, try to be conscientious about what you eat. Buy healthier foods and snacks. I'm not trying to be mean. I'm trying to give advice. I hope this helps. And congratulations on quitting.

Actually, it's because cigarettes lower your appetite.

But, yes, very good on OP for quitting smoking! You definitely did the right thing for your body and your health.

Apparently people who smoke weren't given dummies as a child or something, because it's all about mouth fixation. Got to have something in your mouth unconsciously, whether it's nails, a cigarette or food!

You may have replaced some of the gratification or distraction you achieved with cigarettes by eating.
Doesn't mean smoking kept you thin, just means you need to work on the additional snacking like you worked on the smoking.
Also, a few pounds have never killed anyone.
Sometimes they are actually adding quite nicely to a new improved you and look really pretty.

Cigarettes curb your appetite. It's a big reason - or used to be a big reason - why models/actors smoked a lot. Because they had an image and body type to, like, maintain/fit the mold of and smoking was a way for them to not eat as much/often because they would smoke, not eat, and, therefore, not be hungry.

Smoking causes your heart rate to raise which causes you to use up energy. Without smoking, you will burn less energy than before, thus getting fat. And also without smoking, your body works much more efficient. That means you will absorb foods better. Eat less or start working out more.

Congratulations! You have shown that being skinny doesn't necessarily mean you're really healthy, which is such an important message to highlight. Work those new curves! X

Since I quit smoking, my weight has been very hard to control. I've had to completely change the way I eat. I've had good luck following The South Beach Diet. I wish you all the luck.
