Nicotine only stays in your system for about three days sunshine so by the 6th you'll have two of those days behind you. Why would you take it back up when it's almost out of your system?!

Nicotine was an appetite suppressant

 

So i can feel that hunger and cravings for snack coming back to me .

 

Other than that everything is cool

I still have a bit of craving for snacks

I am still trying to avoid oily foods and junk foods

 

Drank some water 

 

A bit bored

 

Staying away from NRT gums have not caused much issue so far

We're all bored and chewing gum really isn't that exciting.   Give it a few days for the nicotine to get out of your system and if you want to chew something, Orbit sugarfree isn't bad if you can get it.

You've got this Sunshine. 

 

Not sure what will feel helpful as the nicotine leaves your body.   I slept for a day or so.   Drinking lots of water and juice. 

Playing cards.   Glad you are FREE!

Thanks for the reply Jordan7 , darcy

 

This NRT withdrawal symptoms are nothing compared to cigarette smoking withdrawals

 

Yes , i can handle it .

 

What i really don't like is the constant feeling of hunger

 

Will wait three days and see if the three days have made any differences when it comes to my sudden hunger issues

Mate....let's aim to make this the final push....no more NRT yeah?

 

So chewing normal gum will help with appetite issue...most gum now is sugar free do diabetic friendly. Healthy snacking option that is good..celery sticks. Also good option is to suck on sugar free lollipops. I know it's hard to do that final step and give up the NRT...cos I've done it...but you can do this mate.

Thanks for the reply

Still only bit of  appetite problems , i don't know why i have cravings for food all the time now , lol

 

 

OK , flushing all the little amount of nicotine out of my system .

 

Head feels a bit clouded in the morning for some time , but that is normal too

 

@Sazerac ,

 

Yes that is how i was able to quit smoking the cigarettes

In one or two days like this , i might even forget the gums too .

 

Must  manage the cravings for food properly

 

Thanks

Walnuts are a good snack and also an appetite suppressant.

Black chai tea without sugar is a good appetite suppressant & it boosts your metabolism.

Strawberries and blueberries are the best fruit for diabetics....and strawberries are an appetite suppressant. 

 

You can do this. No reason not to have a cuppa tea or coffee in the morning.

Please don't buy nicotine gum, nicotine is almost completely out of your system.  Take this benefit and run with it.

Almonds are great for diabetics and an appetite suppressant.

Avocado falls into that category too. So does ginger and cinnamon. 

Apples do but they are high in sucrose so not really that good for diabetics.

Green tea, with some ginger and cinnamon is a good option.

You can slice strawberries in a water jug overnight and then the water will have a strawberry hint, hardly any sugar... you can add mint leaves too.

Most green leafy vegetables are appetite suppressants, not as good as walnuts and almonds though... just be careful though as often these are high in sugars.

Dark chocolate (preferably bitter) is both low in sugar and also an appetite suppressant.

 

Patchouli oil is supposed to suppress your appetite if you burn it or rub it on your pulse points.

 

Onions have more sugar than most fruit... often diabetics think they have had a nice healthy meal and the BSL will be high because of onion.

 

My mum is diabetic. She always has almonds and walnuts to snack on.

Think of Nicotine as a pill that you've stopped taking.

@notsmokinjo ,

 

Thanks a lot for all the food suggestion , i really do not like getting hungry all the time .

I will try almond and walnut

I am going out in the evening to buy regular gums , something in the mouth makes me forget about a lot of other unwanted things

 

Time to be a little more stricter about my diabetes

 

I am stopping the watermelon too

 

:)

Yes , i am feeling OK  without the gums

The withdrawal symptoms of gums usually go away in 3 hours in my experience

Nicotine is a stimulant and an appetite suppressant.  Study the effects of nicotine to better understand what you are experiencing.

 

I'm not sure if you are having concerns about your increased appetite and weight issues but, somebody reading may be.

Weight Related Resources

 

Quitting smoking and putting a nicotine addiction to sleep can highlight your power, your self-control. 

We are free to choose and no longer being led around by addiction. 

 

Being told with nicotine that we are not hungry when we may, indeed, be hungry ! ? These days are over.

Also, your senses are being re-awakened.  Use this to your advantage.
