Hi Tootie and welcome!

Oh yes, you seem to give up one habit and eating takes it's place. Weight gain is common when quitting. But, and I hope the Dr. agrees with me, it seems to be the worse of two evils, and eventually with a bit of work the weight will come off.
Congrats on quitting Tootie!! Keep up the great work.
