In brief: #1 & #2 cause death

Smoking and obesity are the two most common causes of preventable death.
I would start by quitting tobacco (statistically the worst) a doctor can help. Electronic cigarettes can help. Changing habits is hard, but can be done with support. Your life depends on it.

In brief: Mutual support helps

Consider attending a meeting of nicotine anonymous and/or overeaters anonymous.
You are not alone.
