    I'm normally a laid back guy but I've somehow become uncalm today and it's not stopping. I quit smoking a couple weeks back, but I don't think that's the cause. A coworker is systematically snitching on everyone, and although I don't fuck up very often, it may end up costing me my job - which sucks, because I have a family to support. It doesn't help I had a stupid vivid dream about getting fired about a week back before I suspected anything, when everything was going along seemingly smooth. I'm trying to work on schoolwork but I can't fucking think because I'm in such a state. I feel this anger/rage/whatever throughout my body, my arms are all excited feeling, and all I want to do is smoke a pack of cigarettes all at once.

    Any tips, anyone?

    Don't try to do everything at once. You're human. Take things one project, one assignment, one job at a time, and do what you can to the best of your abilities.
    Find time in each day to do something for yourself that you like. It doesn't have to be a massive amount of time. Listen to some music, watch a movie with the family, read a chapter in a book.
    Try to make sure you're eating right and sleeping right.

    When I'm agitated to all hell I also tend to find time to take walks. It soothes me and calms me down a bit; or I do crafts, even things I suck at.

    -that's all I can think of.
    You'll get through it.

    I guarantee you that the actual problem is somewhere else.

    There is something else troubling you that you are not fully dealing with... and it is coming out like this. Take a step back and look at what else is going on in your life. A while back I went nuts and yelled at my best friend because i felt like she had not told me something in a timely enough fashion.

    When she apologized, i realized that i had really over reacted, then I took a step back and it was obvious that I was stressed because my girlfriend was out of town.

    Once that was out, I could actually say "I am feeling really lonely." and it was no longer that sneaky kind of stress that makes a person yell at his best friend.
