Day 15 - Top banana, I'm in week 3

Well after another stressful day at work...it's getting easier coping with the stress and not thinking I want a cigarette all the time. Even when my manager had to give a colleague and I "feedback" about a case (where we hadn't done anything wrong just used slightly different writing styles in the report). Well I would've got really irritated and would've wanted a fag. But I just sat there all chilled and calm and let it wash over me...fantastic. So maybe I was MORE stressed smoking cigarettes as they say (due to increased heartbeat and blood pressure).

Just to say it get's better...I'm sure I'll have plenty of downers but you have some good uppers too. Hang on in there.

I'm actually pretty proud to say I've made week 3 x x

Hi Lisa and well done on getting into Week 3:D

So maybe I was MORE stressed smoking cigarettes as they say (due to increased heartbeat and blood pressure).

It's true, I used to be so twitchy when I was smoking.

Another good thing is hangovers don't seem to be as bad for some reason.... ah well, mine is not to question why:D:D:p

Well done. Save me a seat in week three please.

I hear what you're saying about stress as well. I feel a calmer since quitting.
