Day 5 Nightmare LOL

Day 5 ! two more Days and I have been quit a WHOLE week :)

I battled to fall asleep last might :( and when i finally , did fall asleep i had a nightmare that i had started smoking again, when I woke up it felt so REAL including the feeling of disappointment and self loathing for smoking LOL.

This morning when i woke up again, i remembered that I had smoked last night I sat up looked at by side table and what a sense of relief, when there was NO sign of the familiar smokes lighter and STINKY ashtray then it all cam back to me that it had all been a dream.

Talk about emotional roller coaster , from felling worthless when i woke up to feeling elated that i had not smoked and was on Day 5.

  • Wow, nearly a week , now that's worth rewarding your self a little treat.

    Not easy this quitting, however I often read long term quitters early posts, it helps.

    Just keep going, and dong what you need to to do to stay quit.

    Congrats:)

    YOU CAN DO IT:)

  • Dude, as Karri says, the famous smoking dream is a really good sign and indicates your subconcious is accepting that you've quit forevermore. Do a forum search on the smoking dream for more info. It is a lovely feeling when you realise it was only a dream isn't it? :D

    Well done mate- you're really steaming ahead now! Huge congratulations from me. :)

  • Damn!

    i can't believe so many people have had the same dream bout smoking again!

    It goes to show how heavyly quitting or fear of failing the quit plays on our subconscious mind,

    I can't speak for anyone else but my "Quit" has been months in the planning and preparation with me reading about smoking cessation , NRT yada yada yada

    I wanted to know what i would be in for EVERY step of the way and how long each step would take LOL.

    After all i have invested into this 5 day QUIT i would be gutted if i "Slipped" and went back to smoking!

    hmmm so i suppose that means i am for lots of "Smoking Dreams'

    Another thing, is it normal to be battling to sleep from as early as day 3 , and not to mention the serious lack of concentration, what would normally take a few minutes now takes twice as long as i find my self "flustered" and like i am not in control of my thoughts.

  • Lead the way

    Hey Sa-dude, you are one day ahead of me- good job, you are leading the way and I look forward to following in your success every step of the way.

    Keeping myself distracted is what I am trying to focus on every hour of the day, one day at a time. :)
