I was just curious to know what new methods any of you have developed to relieve stress? Like me, I'm sure all of you smoked to relieve stress. I actually feel less stressed since quitting, but I do get stressed very easily and really don't want to get so stressed to the point that I feel like I need to smoke. Any advice would be great! One thing I've started to do is go to the gym; jogging is great Another thing I wanted to ask people about is if anyone is feeling/has felt extra emotional in the first couple weeks of quitting? This probably sounds really strange, but there have been a few times that I suddenly get very anxious, and even start crying. I think it is because smoking is also a way to deal with things in our lives that worry us, make us sad etc. For me, smoking was a way of distracting myself, and blocking negative feelings and thoughts. So now that I no longer have cigarettes as a coping mechanism/am emotionally dependent on them, it makes me have to face things that are bothering me, which is actually quite a scary thing sometimes! Hope everyone is coping and feeling positive!
