Is there really a connection there? I've never heard that.

I had always read that people gain weight after quitting smoking because (1) there's a natural compulsion to put something in your mouf i.e. oral fixation and (2) your taste buds start to get cleaned off when all the junk from the cigarettes goes away and food starts actually tasting better, resulting in greater consumption.

Regardless, good on ya for quitting. Hope it takes!
