Stool Like Cow pat

Hi there, for some time now I have been having cow pat type stool, it tend to be on and off, when passing it, it feels solid only when i glance down i notice its like cow pat. I cant really say its diarrhea as it is normal colour and has defined edge ie not mixed in with the water already in the toilet bowl. It this something to worry about, I have been stressed alot over the last few months and have smoked alot of cigarettes? Any advise would be appreciated

The stress may possibly have caused you to have a bit of looser bowel movements. That's all. Nothing to worry about.

Your increased tobacco use is far more dangerous medically.
