Women in fear to weight gain

Nearly half of female smokers refuse to quit smoking for fear of gaining weight. They say - "If I quit, I’ll gain weight." Yes, most smokers do gain a little weight when the stop, however, they only gain about three kilograms on average, a far less damaging risk compared to health problems arising from continued smoking. People should switch to a light diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables a few weeks before they stop smoking.

Nearly half of women say they were addicted to cigarettes, and they are not ready to give up. Almost every former smoker and non-smoker women say they do not want to poison their body and that the smell of smoke upset them. Only about one-third does not smoke because it disturbs their partner.
