I was vaping a very light nicotine mixture (but vaping a lot). I decided to quit because I was annoyed by the sticky glycerin residue being left on my belongings. Immediately upon quitting I gained 3 lb. This 3 lb has stayed with me for a week now. I know about the typical quitting nicotine/gaining weight issue so I deliberately cut back on calorie dense foods, have carefully measured calorie intake etc. Activity level has stayed the same (moderate) between purposeful exercise and physical work involved in doing repairs around here. I already eat low carb because I'm diabetic.
Does anyone have experience with retaining water after quitting any form of nicotine? This is weird. My wedding ring is tight. I am drinking water as usual, neither more nor less, the generally recommended 8 cups a day.
