Random smoking dreams

WTF... after nearly 5 months smoke-free I have been thrown a carveball in the shape of dreams of having a cigarette... this inturn, has increased my cravings again!!! How bloody annoying... has anyone else had the same thing... its doing my head in, and if I were to replase it would be now because the dreams make it seem so benign and acceptable...

FIVE MONTHS AND THIS FFS!!:mad::mad::mad:

  • NEWBIES DO NOT READ THIS:o

    Right with ya Vicki, I'm on 4 and a bit months, had one last night and in it I wasn't even that bothered that I'd failed had quite a few of the dreams and each one has me feeling a different way, sometimes almost suicidal cause I'm smoking, others feeling elated to be smoking again. The wierd thing with me is that when I'm with people smoking I am not in the slightest bit bothered but there are days that seem like it's day 1 again when I'm in work and I get really restless.

  • Hi Vicki :D

    I can relate to what you're saying about the dreams

    I had one on Thurs, last week after almost 6 months quit

    Woke up around 2am convinced I'd had a fag scary or what took a while before I realised it was only a dream arghhhhh but didn't sleep much for the rest of the night

    Unlike you it didn't bring back any cravings though it just made me a bit cross

    Love

  • yup, count me in. I hadnt had any dreams about it until two days ago when I dreamt I was being forced to smoke in my sleep, I dreamt that I woke up with a cig on the go in my hand and there was nothing I could do about it because I was sleep-smoking ! Took me a few minutes to come to terms with the fact it had all been a dream, then I felt relieved.

    Ive been quit for nearly 5 months now too.

  • I had one that was so realistic and vidid that I took taste the smoke in my mouth and smell it after I woken up. Really felt like I'd been smoking all through the night. I was so convinved that I smoked, that I was confused that there was no packet of cigarettes, lighter or matches and no dog ends any where.

    My brain kept telling I derserved a cigaette as a way of celebrating not smoking for a day, a week, a month. How freaky is that

  • Thats spooky, is there a 4-5 month sticky patch thing do you reckon? Theres a lot of the Jan quitters posting re cravings or smoking dreams. I can't advise on how to deal with them and I have great sympathy for you all, but I thank you greatly for posting as I shall be most certainly battening down the hatches next month in anticipation of something kicking off in my head.

  • Have had the odd smoking dream after 11 weeks smokefree, and I must say they don't bother me in the slightest, after all they are only dreams. Makes me laugh when I realise what has happened. David

  • Oh thank god its not just me... they are as realistic as sex dreams ( not that I have them :D )... you can taste and feel it... and the guilt when you wake up is awful!!

    maybe it is a 4/5 month thing!

  • they are as realistic as sex dreams

    In dreams Vicki, when does the smoking take place, after sex or what? David

  • I have had a few smoking dreams since I quit but I'm just relieved when I wake up and realise its all a dream. I am usually so cross with myself in my dream so if anything it has helped me with my quit because I know how mad I'd be with myself!

  • In dreams Vicki, when does the smoking take place, after sex or what? Davidhaha.. sadly there was no sex involved... I just compare them to sex dreams because of the realism!

  • iv had about 4 really vivid smoking dreams. one where i climbed a high wall in the rain just to get some fags and another where my mum was dying of some smoking related disease but in the dream i was still a smoker.... :confused:

    think its absolutely normal to have these dreams. i think of it as my brains way of cleansing my subconcious and removing associations to the dreaded weed.

    mine started around the 4 month mark too x

  • Must say that I had quite a few smoking dreams around this time too. Was convinced that I had smoked - was almost in tears one morning as I thought I had caved. (I so do NOT want to be back at Day 1)

    Must be a 4-5 month thing - how weird.:eek:
