regaining weight after quitting

it's been over 2 months. i eat right, get plenty of exercise, drink alot of water. funny how i never cared what kind of drugs i was pushing thru my body, but i always tried to maintain a healthy diet. anyway, i can't seem to gain any weight. i am at least 15 pounds underweight. i want to look like i stopped using, you know? i am as strong as a horse and feel fine. anyone got a sure fire way to gain weight. feels like i might blow away. i also drink whey protein shakes full of ice cream.
  everywhere i look, it's lose weight fast, or lose pounds and inches. i feel like i'm being discriminated against for being underweight. people just get aggravated when i mention it, saying things like, " i wish i had that problem" or " i'd kill to have your figure". but they wouldn't. it hurts to take a bath or come down too hard on the potty. even going to NA meetings! help me before i go out and buy a donut pillow. thanks, sway

Enjoy it why you can. Sounds like you have a high metabolism. Were you always like this?

the first time i got clean was in a long term treatment facility. i gained like 60 pounds from all the starchy food. went on a diet and got down to my normal size 7 which is what i was most of my adult life. the other day i had to buy pants in the children's section. i can't take this anymore.

I still say enjoy it. Its far healthier to  be thin than heavier.

Hey sway, my metabolism is so fast also and Ive always been thin, but on drugs i was grossly thin. I am up to 170 now and put on 25 lbs since quitting, feels better, but I still look skinny lol. Try the Mcdonalds diet, but that is not so healthy either haha.

Consult a good nutritionist, maybe? One that is a Naturopath.
