And then I woke up!

On Friday night/Saturday morning I had the most vivid dream that I smoked a cigarette. The disappointment in myself and devestation that I'd have to go back to day 1 were so real and stayed with me until I was properly awake and realised it was just a really vivid very real feeling dream. I lay there for about a minute after I woke up with all those feelings of failure washing over me... you can imagine my relief and delight when the realisation that it was a dream and I hadn't really had a fag at all.

I have had those dreams Lauren, I know exactly how you felt. Such a relief when you realise it was just a dream. This means you really want to quit. x:)

I've just woken up from my "read" absolutely dragging the guts out of a cig. It was the third time I've had this dream, but this one was the most intense. I was so upset with myself, then it eventually dawned on me I was still in bed so I must have been dreaming. Sheesh how real it was.
