Day 7 – Absolute Nightmare

Morning Gang!! Woke up this morning almost in tears :( I woke up feeling so guilty and disappointed with myself. But luckily it was all just a dream... a dream that I had a dirty, filthy, stinking cig. Wow! It was soooo real!! Has anyone else dreamt they had a smoke?! I swear I could smell/taste it!! So relieved that it was just a dream (NIGHTMARE) and if anything it has spurred me on so much.

The guilt I felt.. from just a DREAM! Imagine what I would feel in real life. I am so determined, I will win this war... who’s with me??

So other than the nightmare, I had a really positive weekend. So confident now, I even cleared the house completely of smoking related products. I’m on Day 7.... I can see the light to the magical 1 week milestone! In just under 24 hours I will be there, and posting in the WEEK 2 Thread! Boooooommm!!!!

6 days down, just started day 7. I’m in HEAVEN!!!

How is everyone else today?

  • Hey Craig

    Fantastico day 7 well done you. I also feel the same as you at the moment and pretty much have done so from about day 6 onwards. Day 18 for me today and I feel so alive. Am waiting for a bad day but so far just happy one's. Hope that continues for you also it's a great feeling.

    Have not dreampt about me smoking but my best mate was smoking in my dream and she gave up about 20 years ago...Wierd.

  • Hi Craig

    Yep...have had the dream.

    I also woke up feeling completely crap about myself....was totally resigned to the feeling "Oh noooo I smoke again..."

    What a feeling when you wake up properly though and realise it was all just a dream! Get In!!!! :D

    You're doing great mate

    Stay strong and keep going :)



  • Scary stuff:eek:

    Haven't had any smoking dreams but have had plenty of vivid dreams since I quit. I snogged Alan Davis on an enormous escalator the other night.....****yse that!

    Nifty, Yep its a great feeling when the realisation that it was just a dream kicks in, but also a major boost of excitement!! Thanks mate :)

    Max, Bbbbbbboom!! That's the sound of the nicotine beast being thrown out the window and kicked down the street. He now hides in the shaddow waiting for an opportunity to strike, but soon I will have so much light he will have no where to hide and he will be gone forever!!!

  • Thank you DoodleBugRoach, It was the first time I have had a dream (nightmare) about it, it was so real, I hope it was the last.

    You are doing fab too! we just have to stick with it and the beast will be beaten!

  • Good to hear Graig, hope your finding it that bit easyer every day, have nt had any wierd dreams so far but for first few nites i could nt sleep and sweated a lot but that seem to be getting better now :)

  • I had a few of those dreams in the early days of Champix. You feel absolutely ghastly don't you? It took me ages to realise it WAS just a dream and oh boy the relief to realise. Thank goodness it was just a dream for you Craig x

  • Thanks Squinter, the first couple of nights I kept waking up during the night hot and sweaty too, but i thought it was becuase I was ill, maybe it was withdrawal too... Anyway, like you, I'm glad to be feeling pretty good :-)

    Becky, yes felt sick! so glad it was just a dream - such a relief! Now we must all keep going strong!! Thank everyone!
