Quitting Smoking - Friend in Hospital from weight gain and bacterial infection in lungs

Can quitting actually be bad for you? My friend was never sick a day in his life until he quit smoking, he gained over 100 pounds and now has so many issues and is in and out of the hospital on a regular basis. He smoked for over 30 years and was in top shape until he quit now everyone is saying his body must have adjusted to it and quiting was the worse thing he ever did.


I agree that quitting smoking is a shock to your system.

What has he done to get back his health -- tried smoking or nicotine gum, etc?
