This is like a dream...

I think I know what they mean about having strange dreams. This is after the "quit smoking" medication. W1 and I have been waking up throughout the night and having strange dreams. The down side is, I can never remember my dreams. But I made a conscious effort last night to see exactly what the Hell is going on. And it may have worked.

I woke up at 2:27 this morning. Out of nowhere, just awake. And what was I thinking. Apparently I was dreaming and whatever I was doing I had finished. It was either buying cigarettes or throwing away the last pack, or something. I definitely remember it involving cigarettes. But the main thing was, I had just finished doing whatever it was. Like my body said "Ok, story's done, you can wake up now". I eventually went back to sleep trying to remember as much as I could.

Once again, I woke up at 4:22. This one I remember a little more. I had just finished the last cigarette in my last pack. Then immediately, wide awake. So now I am trying to remember my previous dream and the one I just had. All while I'm trying to figure out why I'm waking up every 2 hours or so. But once again I fell back asleep. 6:22 AM, and I woke up again. This time I have no idea what I was dreaming but I am quite sure I had just finished that particular dream. I immediately tried to recall the 2 previous dreams, which is why I couldn't remember the last one.

So the 2 things I am noticing are, I wake up immediately after my dream has ended, and all the dreams seem to be about cigarettes or smoking. Oh well, life goes on. This too shall pass...

Hmmm... Maybe you are dreaming about dreaming about cigarettes.

So, you're having a cigarette every two hours? That doesn't sound so bad! Just kidding, I know it's hard and I'm rooting for you both.

There we go. Maybe smoking is all just a dream. And when I wake up, I won't want to smoke.

I dunno. I think I would rather go to sleep until I don't feel like smoking. But I think I would need an IV too, because that would be a looooong sleep.

Thanks for rooting for us though. :)

But dreaming about smoking is so much healthier than actually smoking them! and cheaper too!
