Title: smoking
Post by: chris on January 06, 2009, 08:12:53 PM
this might sound funny, but i was wondering, if this way of eating will put you more in touch with your natural instincts etc, for food ,do you think it would help a person to also not want to smoke cigarettes anymore?

I wouldn't be surprised if eating in a more paleolithic manner would help curb the desire to smoke.  However, I believe exercising regularly would be an even more effective deterrent.  Basically, I don't think a person can continue to both smoke (at least not heavily) and exercise with any intensity on a regular basis.  Something would have to give... either you'd quit smoking (or smoke considerably less), or quit exercising.

Probably why you don't see many people light up after running a marathon...   ;)

Yes it can, and possibly will.  I still hook into the home grown tobacco, but not whilst I'm training.

I've dusted this old one  off from 2009.

I did the same thing as Ollie, lately though, I am feeling less of a desire to smoke. Is anyone else feeling like this?
