Smoking again

Day 114:

Hi,

Had a bad dream last night, I dreamt that I started smoking again, it felt so real.

In my dream I was puffing away on a B&H Gold and I kept saying to myself "you twit, this tastes awful, why you doing this" in my dream I felt disappointed about ruining my quit, 113 days down the pan, I hated myself for giving in.

When I awoke, those feelings were still there, I felt awful. Even when I realised I had not started smoking again I still felt like crap, I can't believe that dream felt so real and how much its affected my mood today.

Still smoke free but feeling really down:(

  • Hi Jimmer,

    you are not alone ive had that dream a few times and it helped reinforce my quit, as if a daft dream made me feel that bad about smoking again how would it feel if it was reality??

    the first time i had it however i did spend the day down in the dumps thinking maybe i should smoke if i feel this bad anyway but knew it wouldnt solve anything.

    so chin up and good luck

    never quit quitting

    Thx Jenni, a problem shared is a problem halved as they say. Thought I was going potty since I hadn't read anywhere anyone having a dream so vivid.

  • I've had a few dreams where I've been smoking...usually after a few beers!!! I also sometimes dream that my car has been stolen or crashed into or I'm extremely late for work...its such a relief when I wake up. :o

  • No problem hun, my hubby gets me up in the morning and he always gives me a gentle nudge and a "morning time to get up", this one time i had woken before he came up and was head under duvet checking my breath absolutley beside myself thinking what on earth is he gonna say about me smoking again, oh my god he is gonna hate me, then it dawned on me you stupid numpty it was a dream!!!!

    you can imagine hubby's face when he came up to find me hiding in duvet trying to sniff my breath, however the lol he was doing that followed my explanation was even more daft.

    so no we are not normal but hey ho we are pink lunged, this time next year millionaire, non smoking not normal :)

    Hi Dave,

    I had weird dreams during the first couple of weeks of my quit, but never so vivid and they defo never gave me the moody blues. The smoking bit just felt so real this time.

    I guess that old nico demon just doesn't wanna give me up.

    Sorry to disappoint you my evil friend:)

  • Jenni,

    I wondered where you were going with that little story, I didn't think this forum was the place to discuss where I thought you were going :) But then I am a male and we only think about one thing, or maybe two, oh just thought of something else, three things, erm four............ shoot me please.
