The psychological part is killing me

I have been resisting my latest craving all week. It's weird because the initial cravings disappeared fast and I had no problems for a while. Last night I dreamed about smoking which of course had me confused this morning as to if I caved or not.

An amazing charity
Please remind your children what to do if their clothing catches fire. It could save their life.

I also dreamt about it for at least a month, if not more. It was such a horrible feeling waking up and thinking that I caved Click here to enlarge

I reminisced alot too, still do, not really having cravings though. Are you having a hard time then? I found it was better for me just to let the craving happen, but not do anything about it. The craving is just a feeling, and there's nothing wrong with those!

Coral, I'm so glad you posted this. I quit on 1/2 and the first week or so was really rough, and then things got easier, and the past two weeks or so I feel like I'm back at square one, minus the physical withdrawals.

I have been wanting a cigarette a lot lately, and I find myself heading out to the patio for a smoke and then going Click here to enlarge am I doing out here? I was beginning to feel like something was wrong with me.

I have also dreamt a couple of times that I've smoked and woke up feeling like a failure.

I use the same technique as wabbit, but lately I've been struggling with it. I think it's mostly because I think I should be over it all, and it really disorients me when I get one of those relapse mental moments where my mind is thinking "cigarette time!" and my body starts looking for the lighter and digging thru my purse. That's when I do the Click here to enlarge part and then I feel really disappointed. It's weird and I don't like it! Click here to enlarge

I don't know, but I think it may take years to be 'over it'. My boyfriend and I went to a casino about a month ago, and I was thinking about smoking the entire time. I think the only reason I didn't was because I figured I was inhaling so much smoke already, I really didn't need to actually smoke Click here to enlarge It was really bad though, and adding drinking to the mix didn't help either.

Ive had one dream about smoking in the last month. It wasnt even my usual brand of cigarettes; I used to smoke Marlboro Lights and whatever I was smoking had a brown speckled filter. Anyway I was really enjoying it in my dream until the end when I remembered I was supposed to not smoke anymore and I felt INCREDIBLY guilty Click here to enlarge

When I woke up I still had that guilt feeling, like I was hiding the fact that I smoked when I really didnt. It was confusing Click here to enlarge

Smoking Dreams

The smoking dreams, When your "nocturnal slip" shows. I take those as lessons in how I would truly feel if I did slip while awake. The guilt in those dreams certainly is a wakeup call for me!
