A little stressed.....

Posted in Quit experiences 22 Feb 2012

Well today I'm finding out whats it's like to feel alittle stressed and not have the cigs for support.

On my way for a stress test at the hospital after having a chest pain one morning last week, funny how when your puffing away for all those years you think your invincible, how you look at the nasty photos on the cigarette packets and think *oh yeah!* or you go and light up as soon as the stop smoking adds appear on TV just so you don't have to listen ..........hmmmmm, but I knew best.

But today I'm in a different mind set, a cigarette is not going to calm me, it won't do me any good at all and in the last 7 weeks I've learn't to chill and take it as it the new me is going up to have that test and she's going to kick some a*** on that treadmill.
