I personally think nicotine addiction is nothing. One-day withdrawal. Just wanted to say. If you're a strong-willed person, the physical symptoms are pretty darn mild.

Not sure if this is sarcasm, but amused me anyhow.

coffee & cigarettes = old school weight control plan

For a big chunk of my childhood my active healthy grandma subsisted on:

coffee & cigarettes (Salems)
lunch
coffee & cigarettes
dinner

Gained weight when she quit smoking like a lot of people. No idea if it was "safe" but she lived into her mid 90s when she passed from complications of a broken hip.

I tried to start in my late teens (not to lose weight; to get smoke breaks at work ), but I'm allergic to tobacco products.

Used electronic ciggarte + instant coffee a lot when going under 10% cause that was when hunger started to happen and im not usually hungry when dieting. Withdrawal from ecig was about 2 days worth of headaches starting about the 3rd day after stoping. More mild then stopping coffee which i dont.

I definitely was not joking. I didn't know people used that for fat loss.

@Roadkill- was it a good appetite suppressant? I mean, was it worth it?

For me it was definently worth it. Keep in mind i dont get addicted to a lot of things so you may react diferently to it.

I've used a lot of nicotine gum throughout the years for studying, appetite suppression, mood, and to stay awake at work. I've never noticed even short term withdrawal. IMO, nicotine addiction is augmented by the delivery method (smoking) and various substances (MAOI, etc) added to cigs. I wouldn't be too concerned about being addicted to the gum from my experience.

My experience as well. If i dont have gum day after doing it for a while i get insane cravings. The day after its gone. Like roadkill said I don't get withdrawals from going 6 to 8 cups coffee to 0 other than mild lethargy so ymmv.

I think I'll try it. I don't tend to get addicted to things easily and don't have addiction in the family so I think I'm OK. Plus, it's just gum ha ha

I have never tried this myself. Not sure if worth it but may consider once I start getting into the lower body fat %s and I could really use some appetite suppression.
