Over 1 million people have quit smoking using Cigarest. Unfortunately, most people who quit smoking worry about gaining weight. While a small gain is normal, excessive weight gain when you quit smoking can create new health problems and erode your determination to stay off cigarettes. Learn what you can do to keep your weight under control as you go through the process of recovery from nicotine addiction.

Why do people gain weight when they quit smoking?

Smoking increases metabolism slightly:

  • Smoking burns up to 200 calories a day in a heavy smoker
  • Because smoking burns calories, metabolism is boosted (increased) slightly
  • Nicotine is an appetite suppressant

When you quit smoking, a gain of between 5 and 10 pounds during the first few months of cessation is normal. If your eating habits have remained the same as they were when you smoked, you can easily shed this small gain with a brisk, 30 minute walk daily.

Have you ever wondered what’s in a cigarette that makes it so darned addictive?

Your body gets more than nicotine when you smoke.

There are more than 4,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke. The scary thing is… some of those chemicals are also in wood varnish, the insect poison DDT, arsenic, nail polish remover, and rat poison.

The ashes, tar, gases, and other poisons in cigarettes harm your body over time. They damage your heart and lungs. They also make it harder for you to taste and smell things, and fight infections.

What causes nicotine addiction?
Nicotine is a drug - and it’s very addictive. Found in cigarettes, nicotine causes changes in the brain that make people want to use it more and more. Addictive drugs, such as nicotine, cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. The good feelings that result when an addictive drug is present — and the bad feelings when it’s absent — make breaking any addiction very difficult. Historically, nicotine addiction has been one of the hardest addictions to break. Cigarest has developed a program that has helped over 1 million people kick the smoking habit, and they can help you stop smoking now!

The Surgeon General’s Report, “Nicotine Addiction,” concluded that

  • Cigarettes and other forms of tobacco are addicting.
  • Nicotine is the drug that causes addiction.
  • Pharmacologic and behavioral characteristics that determine tobacco addiction are similar to those that determine addiction to drugs such as heroin and cocaine.

What else does nicotine do to the body?
