Smoking dream

It's been what seems like months since my last smoking dream, but last night it returned with a vengeance. So, yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, and after work my husband called to say he was in the pub and would I like to join him. So I grabbed the dog and my youngest son and we all sat outside. Quite a few of us were there and everyone (except me and my husband, and the kids ) was smoking. It didn't bother me one jot. Anyway, a few vodkas later (I'm on a diet, hence no lager :D), we went home. I woke up in the middle of the night absolutely convinced I'd ruined my quit and had smoked throughout the evening along with everyone else. I even had the sore throat. When I woke up properly this morning, it took a while for me to convince myself that I hadn't had one (or 20). Smoking is obviously still on my mind subconciously, though I hardly think of it during waking hours.

  • Great to have the better weather returned...not the smoking dreams though :(

    Joel, from Whyquit, comes up with a plausible suggestion in that the cilia (wee hairs in your lungs) sweep tar and other gunge out of your lungs and this triggers a smoking dream. To follow that logic you may have taken in second hand smoke whilst in the beer garden and again the cilia are sweeping that gunge out...hence smoking dream last night.

    I don't know if that makes sense, or even is true...but could be one explanation.

  • I've had lots of smoking dreams since I quit and I embrace every one. Whenever I have a smoking dream I wake up in a cold sweat with feelings of complete and utter dread and panic. For me that's such a strong reminder of how I would feel if I went back on the ash! I also don't think of smoking much when I'm awake - odd how the mind works!

  • I had one not that long ago too, having smoked for so many years I suppose it is only natural to think about it, even if it is subconsiously from time to time. I panic too though, I think we have to worry when we dont panic and just get up and continue it on.

  • i had lots of these dream in the first couple of months...and it was horrible waking up thinking that i smoked:eek: i havent has one in a while except for last nite and i woke up knowing it was a dream and i was very relaxed and grateful:cool:

  • This is the first I am reading about smoking dreams as, I do smoke but never ever dreamed about me smoking or any other situations related to smoking.

    But good to know this. It is always better to stay updated with such terms or updates that you have never read before or even listen from anybody.

    Hi

    Not sure if you quite understand this site. These are people who have given up smoking and are now dreaming about it.
