So I just ran out of smokes and I had a really bad day. Its 3am here and i'm living in a village right now so the store doesn't open until 7:30am. I'm really stressing out. What do you do when your stressed?

Oh, you are going to hate me for saying this, Monkeyrose, but the main reason I am never stressed is that I never smoke. Seriously, but if I were stressed, I would jump up and down or my mini-trampoline, or if the weather is nice outside, ride my bike. Exercise de-stresses, or so I have been told.

Oh the reason I was stressed out orginally was something else....but i tend to deal with my stress by smoking a lot so it just compounded it. I agree exercise is a great was to relieve stress but it was -30 outside. I just moved and it was 3am so I was also concerned for my safety of going outside that late in a place I didn't know well. I also live in staff accomodations and the walls are thin so I couldn't really do anything in my room because it would be too loud.

Sounds like going out in the cold and dangerous night would just stress you out more. The mini-trampoline I have doesn't make any noise.

Terrible predicament, happened to me several times before, so I swore to myself it would never happen again. Go get some sleep, buy in the morning when the store is open and promise yourself you will not let this thing happen again, set aside a place or a cabinet and from then on, always check from time to time that you have ample supply of what ever it is you need

See normally I do make sure I have enough but a very stressful situation arose and so I tend to chain smoke when I have anxiety.

Hi Monkeyrose, Not fun stuff! It's happened to me before too. Middle of the night and I suddenly realize that I'm out of smokes. I usually plan ahead so that doesn't happen because the minute you realize it...that is when you are going to really really want one. I would just go to bed and try to get my mind off it and plan on heading out to the store first thing in the morning. Get some sleep and 7:30 will be here before you know it.
