    I am not normally into sweets but these last two days [first two day of my quit] all I am craving is sugar.  Like I could totally eat an entire jumbo bag of those Mini Eggs.  Anyone else crave sweets during withdrawal?

    hi Kittie_v,

    I suspect most people could relate to you. We hear this a lot as an increase in appetite is a common withdrawal symptom. It probably relates to the slight decrease in metabolism from quitting.

    If you can, try to go for healthy options when possible, like berries. Even popping them in the freezer can make them seem more like candy. 

    Hope this helps,
