Sorry if someone already posted this info, but I didn't have time to read all the lengthy responses (I'm at work) hehe
When I quit this fall, the counselor told me that smoking a pack a day burns an extra 150 calories (since it quickens your metabolism, etc.) so she said weight gain is common for that reason. Maybe cut a few calories and exercise a little more? I'm struggling the same as you, so I definitely don't want to make it sound like it's easy, because it's not. I too have gained weight and am trying to deal, though prednisone is partially to blame in my case too.
