I just quit last friday (85 hours and counting) and I feel for ya, Seb! Of
course, I'm not doing this cold turkey (yeah for the patch!!), but a friend of
mine is and he is going nuts. I didn't need the reminder about putting on weight
though - I actually figured out how to stop the "after food" nic craving - just
don't stop eating...
