Will I gain weight if I quit smoking?

ANSWER

Not everyone does. When people do gain weight when they give up smoking, it’s usually less than 10 pounds.

Eat a healthy diet, stay active, and try not to let any weight gain distract you from your main goal of quitting. Some of the medications to help you quit smoking may delay weight gain.
