Stress. It’s still there whether I smoke or not. I skated my face off at the bike path today trying to skate off the stress. Then I did yoga. I’m still distracted and stressed, but sure it would be much worse with cigs. They made me feel so sluggish that I probably wouldn’t have done anything.
On my Quit It app the quote today was something like “only smokers are couch potatoes.” I’ve been very active most of my life, but it’s so much harder to get out there and do things when you’re smoking. I don’t want to miss out on anything because I’m distracted and thinking about my next opportunity to smoke.
How do you cope with stress? I definitely get enough exercise. I sometimes journal and reach out to friends. I need more.
