I need a new habit

before I gain 400 lbs from all the snacking that has taken the place of smoking!

Somebody - please - Help Me! Save me from this giant box of wheat thins, and bag of M&Ms, and box of granola bars (not the healthy ones, of course - the yummy ones with more chocolatey goodness than anything).

Seriously folks, I am honestly afraid to get on the scale. If this keeps up, I may just go back to the cancer sticks....

You're doing GREAT!

Here are some ideas:

Carry around a bottle of water to sip from.
Switch to sugar free hard candys or mints when lollypops aren't a good option.
A mini Slinky to play with.
Paint your nails bright green.

You could do the rubber band around your wrist that you snap when you have an urge, but I like the other ideas better.

You are so amazing for doing this!!! KEEP IT UP!!!

Ugh, crochet & chew gum. Gives you something to do with your hands & mouth. I say crochet instead of knit because the needle is smaller & it would be easier to carry around. You could do it anywhere :)

Don't do it don't do it don't do it! No tips, just don't do it. It'll get easier. Slowly. Ever ever so slowly.

I am so very proud of your quitting smoking. SO PROUD of you! This is just unbelievably awesome for you and for your future. You are actually creating "future" for yourself and your family. Good for you Beth. Good for you!
