Stress, I find, is a funny creature. Sneaks up unexpectedly to bite your behind when you think that you have everything completely under control and that nothing, absolutely nothing, can break your resolve to never ever smoke again. Not two weeks after celebrating 5 months smoke free life has taken a twist and I find myself automatically craving relief with that horrible little blighter nicotine. I very much doubt I will succumb thanks to amazing support from my partner who quite unimpressed with my 'oh my god I need a cigarette' outburst just said 'really honey? What a waste of effort that would be'. Part of me is really cross at his easy dismissal of my plight but secretly it makes me laugh as he us right, Mr Impractical is actually making sense without realising it! Sp my question is how do other people cope with stress and ensure it doesn't ruin the quit attempt regardless of how long it has been? Brightest blessings to all
