Hi Simone,

Quiting smoking is one of the hardest things to do. I know, I was a smoker for 10 odd years and I was a Physical Training Instructor in the army (terrible example for the troops). Giving up the smokes is not impossible and a challenge you should take now. Don't wait for your 10kg weight drop.
We have a number triggers that stimulate our need for a smoke. You need to remove as many as possible.

What to do.
Get rid of the phone for a few days. If you have the support get someone to take a message for you or ask friends and family not to call for the weekend
Do not have a big lunch or dinner, just have little healthy snacks.
Try and sleep, go to bed early and sleep, ask your chemist or doctor about taking a calmative such as Mersyndol.
Next is to drink lots of water, this will help the body flush the toxins, toxins if they are not flushed from the body will be stored in a fat cell.

I can offer more advice, but will wait for your further interest

I quit smoking almost 4 years ago and went on to lose about 20kg at the same time.

I have regained that weight but it was long after I had quit smoking and was to do with lifestyle, not the smokes.

I say do it now! The earlier you do it the better it is for you.
