Dreaming about smoking

Hi all

It's the faceless wonder here, can't disclose my identity if my mother found out I had smoked she would literally kill me and yes I am 35 and should 'woman up' but I can't and giving up smoking is hard enough without the overdue and very late wrath of a loved one!?

Anyway I am rambling! I have a recurring dream and wondered if anyone else had it!? Basically I smoke so break my quit. That's it really but wake up with.a substantial feeling of guilt and can't shake it, it's so real some days I actually think I have smoked and ruined things!? And other days I long for a cig as its like my fake dream cig has topped up my nicotine levels

Anyone else experienced this

By the way sorry I keep posting!! I am absolutely fine all day keep busy at work don't even think about smoking even if I go out for a "fresh air break" with other smokers and yet come 930 onwards my mind starts to wander ... Boredom I think

Hope everyone is keeping up with their quits been a bit me me me lately. And if you are one of these day one wonders sort it out and get into day two!!

Firstly, please don't every apologise for posting! Post whatever, whenever.

Encourage the new starts with a few words, that'll keep your evenings busy.

Regarding dreams, whilst on patches, I was too busy doing bank heists to smoke!!!!! I was the mastermind, and it took its toll, I was shattered in the mornings!!!!

I'm sure I,ve read of many others having dreamt they've smoked, so it's not uncommon TVH.

You're doing just fine :)

I have been stopped over 3 years and I still have a dream that I am smoking a gig I get annoyed at myself for starting smoking again but I never remember in my dream lighting it. You will get dreams you are smoking for a long time it's normal but they will become less frequent and do no harm. :)
