Before I began my quit two weeks ago if I became cross, upset or irritated people would know I was feeling one of those emotions for a legitimate reason. It appears however, that as soon as I give up smoking I no longer have the right to be legitimately cross and it's all palmed off on the fact that not smoking is making me tetchy. Admittedly my fuse may be a millimetre shorter than normal however people still have the power to seriously hack me off, and I still have the right to be stressed at my workload, the only difference is people now have an excuse as to why I may be cross or stressed rather than looking at themselves and wondering if they have contributed to my tearful, quiet meltdown by their words or their actions. I just wonder how long they can use my not smoking as their excuse?
