A surprising thing happened today.
Since the snow last year, I have been dreading the return of the wintry weather. Well today it has reared its ugly head.
Unlike last year, I now have to drive to work along some country roads that are windy and not gritted.
Well I am not the most confident of drivers, and the car I have is so light it is like a sledge on these roads. So not surprisingly, last year when I had to drive to and from work I was absolutely shaking.
This year, yes I was nervous, but I did not start shaking. Now I remember reading somewhere that you become calmer, and more able to deal with stressful situations when you stop smoking. That smoking can actually make your nerves worse.
So I cannot but help think that the lack of shaking, and the ability to cope that I felt today is linked to my not smoking.
What do you think?
