It is 6 years since I had my last smoke. The other day I had a dream about smoking.
"Ha!" you say. "Once a smoker always a smoker. It's true what people say. The craving never leaves you. Even years after stopping, you still want a smoke."
Well, no, not really. In the dream I was in a small room. Several other people were in there, smoking heavily. The atmosphere was thick with the fug of smoke. One person even blew a huge dense cloud of smoke right into my face.
Was I smoking in the dream?.................no
Did I feel like I wanted to smoke?.........no
Did it even occur to me to have a smoke?..........no.
So don't listen to anyone who says you will always want to smoke. People who actually gave up years ago have forgotten that they ever did smoke. That's why they don't talk about it!
Hard though it might be to believe, smoking is simply no longer a part of their life any more.
I have forgotten about smoking. Keep going with your quit, and in time you will forget about smoking too.
