    Addiction to anything takes up a lot of energy surprisingly and so when you do manage to quit, you often find that you do have a lot of excess energy that you have to try and channel into another aspect of your life.

    That could be anything from playing sports and exercise to reading a book or learning how to cook. It doesn't matter what, just as long as you make sure your using that extra energy for something productive.

    What a wonderful story, wish I had told my fiance I hate cigarettes, lol, maybe then he'd have decided to quit it. I really admire you for doing this for the woman you love, I can imagine what a huge revelation this was... realizing this was actually a concern! That says a lot actually.
