I want to quit smoking. Thinking about doing chantex. This will be my 3rd time trying it. Will it still work the same?

Yes, however...: This reminds me of the old joke "Quiting smoking is easy. I've done it dozens of times." If Chantix helped you to quit before it should work just as well this time. What seems lacking is your determination to not start smoking again. I hope you can find the willpower to remain a non-smoker this time.

Does nicotine increase metabolism? So will i for sure gain if i quit smoking? What if i work out?

Does nicotine increase metabolism? So will i for sure gain if i quit smoking? What if i work out?

Exercise will help: Tobacco lowers appetite and raises heart rate, in a way increases metabolism. It also increases blood pressure and has negative effects on blood vessels, so your overall health risk goes up. Exercise is a perfect antidote - it works against weight gain, helps fight sugar cravings that happen after quitting, and reduce desire to smoke. Have low-cal snacks, use nicotine gum/lozenges if needed. ...Read more
