PS Nicotine is what keeps you coming back while you are using it. It's out of your system 3 days after you stop ingesting it.

i didnt actually smoke it in my dream  but i could see myself rolling it ... it was so clear... which is funny cause i dont roll  my own... however ive seen enough people do it that i probably could...i could see myself customizing it.. putting 2 filters one at each end and rolling it up the cutting it in half so i would have one for later...i searched for tyhat damn cigarette when i woke up it was so real..thank god it was a dream....i beleive if you have a dream that you dont want to come back you have to tell someone.. this makes your conscious aware of it .. and it will go away... :-) ... keeping my fingers crossed

smokemares are pretty common, they can really shake you up!  It's just your addiction trying to get your attention. Thanks for telling us, I'm sure you've broken the spell!  Shake it off and move on, a grateful EX-smoker!

Doesn't it feel great when you wake up and realize it was just a nightmare?

Another Woo Hoo to you, girl! Proud of you!At week 3, I was having those same smoking dreams. I blew it off and looked at it like dreaming about an ex or a place I've been in the past. Now we are in the present and think of the future we have in front of us! I'm 43 days quit with no nicotine replacement at all except Chantix. I still have coughing at night and now smelling wood after I quit coughing. Is that normal?? I lost my only and best friend yesterday (he wanted out), and I was wounded since I don't have family.  Did I want to smoke? Yes. Did I smoke - no. But I did eat some extra banana popscicles! LOL

I started a Zumba class that meets twice a week. I was the oldest one there at age 61 and got complimets from the younger folks. With God's help, I WILL NOT FAIL. Don't even miss it.  Just can't figure out this wood smell!  Maybe my coughing is getting way down to the bottom of the smoke heap!

Love to all !!

Its funny how you start the blog by telling everyone that you didn't smoke in the dream.  :)  You are even protecting your quit in your dreams!  (PS Don't feel bad if you puff in the dream.  better there than real life)
