Wouldn't say that it happens in all cases - Smoking may have suppressed your appetite a little and quitting may lead to weight gain. You may also eat more than usual to reduce cravings. To avoid gaining weight when you quit smoking, you need to become more physically active and improve your eating habits before you stop. Making healthy changes to your eating habits will prevent weight gain by controlling the amount of calories you eat.
