I wasn't saying that I wanted to replace the food with cigarrettes, I meant that I thought it would be hard to do them both at the same time. I was hoping that the Master-Cleanse would help with both the eating and the smoking but I must have taken that part of the book the wrong way. I have signed up for cesstation classes. I do not want the patch, I have family members who used them and have stains on their arms from the patches. Thank you for the input. I also wanted to let you know I am still not sure about starting the MC, so I have started the cesstation classes and walking every night after dinner.
