I really thought I was past the hardest part.

I'm 15d 5h 38m into my quit as I write this. For the past few days, I've noticed that any cravings or negative thoughts I experience have been trending downward. Today was mostly no different, but my mother and I exchanged a few harsh words this afternoon and it upset me. Since then, I've felt sad and weakened. The stress of today makes me feel similar to the way during the first few days of my quit, i.e., unstable and fearful of failing. 


Does anyone have tips for handling stress-induced setbacks? I'm still entirely committed to quitting for good, but I hate the idea that some external factor could make me feel this vulnerable.
