bizarre dreaming

hiya it's been a couple of weeks since i was last on but i am now coming up to my 4th week of no smoking on tuesday . everything has been going great , i'm not gaining weight as i have changed my eating habit by having fruit and drinking plenty of water , but i now seem to be having some bizarre dreams . i am just wondering if anyone else has experienced this ?

Hello Chelle, Dont worry for some reason lots of us have bizzare dreams when we are in the early weeks of quitting. Why? I dont really know. I think it could be our subconscious working over time. It does settle down though. :) xx

I woke up one morning, not so long ago, telling my husband I'd had a lovely chat with my mum. I could see myself on the phone..... feel the handset in my hand, as clear as day, told my hubby everything we talked about. Unfortunately, my mum passed away 13 years ago!?

Strange thing the mind....

AH! Thanks for re-posting this article! I'm on my 5th day of not smoking and I am having some off the wall dreams - nice to know there's a "good reason" for them :-)

well done on your quit , i never thought i'd get passed my 1st day but i'm now on my 4th week on tuesday . it's not just been the dreams . at the start i had a very heavy chest and couldn't cough anything up and then the 2nd week it was bloating and constipation at one point i couldn't cope but i'm not going to give in this time ... Good Luck and best wishes x chelle
