Why can't you get burro to go get you one now? He has to do everything you say.

I'm gonna have toast with peanut butter and jam.

I googled "burrito Mullingar", and there's results for Michael from Mullingar reviewing burrito places in Dublin.

yes please elaborate.

i've swollen up terribly around the waistline since quitting 14 months ago.

finding it much harder to lose than i used to as well but that could be an age thing.

Cigarette smoking increases a person's metabolic rate in part by forcing the heart to beat faster. When a cigarette is inhaled, the smoker's heart may beat 10 to 20 times more per minute for a period of time. This causes extra stress on the heart and plays a role in heart disease, the most common cause of smoking-related death.

And think about this: A smoking habit of 20 cigarettes a day puts approximately the same amount of stress on the heart as 90 pounds of extra weight would. When we stop smoking, heart rate slows down somewhat, causing metabolism to dip a bit as well.

While shifts in metabolism, along with dietary changes, can signal a slight weight gain, we can take steps to build our metabolic rate back up in ways that benefit our health rather than destroy it, as smoking does. If weight gain due to smoking cessation is something you fear or is a reality you're struggling with, use the tips below to help you keep your weight stable as you recover from nicotine addiction.

Smoking does appear to speed up your metabolism, increasing calorie burn somewhat each time you light up. A study published in 2009 in "Nicotine & Tobacco Research Advance Access " found that smokers had lower body mass indexes than both nonsmokers and ex-smokers, despite consuming more calories. The average BMI for current smokers was 25.36, while those who never smoked averaged 26.94 and quitters averaged 26.95. However, conflicting research makes it unclear how strong an effect cigarettes have on metabolism.

its going well, thedark. i think that's me done with them now hopefully.

still get wee 2-3 second pangs every once in a while but they pass very very quickly and i'd say it's perfectly natural still to get those.

the weight gain is a definite negative, though. the only negative. it must have been the smokes keeping me lean and mean over the years ;)
