Brief Answer:
Smoking is not good

Detailed Answer:
Good day.
Welcome to health care magic. Smoking is surely not good. It is a risk factor for diabetes and high blood pressure. Besides it is a major cause of heart disease and stroke. You should seriously not restart again. You may use electronic cigaretes or nicotine patches or chewing gum instead if you have craving for cigaretes.

There are lots of ways to beat stress. Try relaxation exercises. Yoga is one simple but powerful tool to beat the stress.
