Joel - thanks for this! I remember running across this in my reading, it's good to see it again after my dream.

For Beccy,

May not be 100% relevant,but it helped me to know my sleep pattern changes were normal and would change. I know they will be able to post more in the a.m.

Thanks, Joel. I have read it before but it was good to read again.

Does this dream usually happen repeatedly, or is this one of those things that now that I have gotten past it, it's over and done with. It was very frightening.

Hello Vivian:

It can happen again, but again, it is only a dream. Ypu may not be as shaken next time, but even if you are it will pass in minutes and if you really analyze the fear you will realize how grateful you are to still be an ex-smoker. In some ways it can reinforce your resolve even though it is so irritating when it happens.

Anyway, I wish you sweet dreams, but even if your dreams aren't always sweet, your waking state will be greatly enhanced as long as you never take another puff!

i know how scary that dream can be. i wake up and feel so upset withself because i could have sworn i had a cigarette in the middle of the night!!!! i actually get up and start looking to see if i did buy any!!!

i just think its very interesting so many people have this in common when they quit. it helps to know you are not the only one. thanks for the good posts!

starla-who is almost at 3 weeks smoke free!!!!

Thanks! This makes sense. This is one of the reasons I failed at other quits. The dreams freaked me out. At least now I now they're normal.
