Increased appetite is a common withdrawal symptom. You may think you're hungry when you're actually experiencing nicotine withdrawal. Your taste and smell are improving which may also stimulate your appetite. If you are concerned about eating too much or gaining weight, exercise is a great way to reduce hunger, burn calories and reduce stress. Replace the hand to mouth habit with alternative activities to keep your hands busy. Also, eating healthy snacks and drinking lots of water can help deal with cravings and avoid weight gain.
