21 days

Posted in Quit experiences 19 Jul 2021

21 days today. No more cravings and smoking feels like a distant memory! I dreamt 2 days ago that I smoked a cigarette and was angry about it( in my dream). I was so happy and relieved when I woke up. Don't know why I had the dream in the first place cause I wasn't thinking about smoking! any hints???

    Well done. Sounds like you are well and truly a non-smoker. Keep it up.

    I also had a dream of smoking but here I am over 900 days smoke free. Our subconscious at work I suppose...but don't make it more than it means, just a wisp of the past.
    We can make smoking a distant memory, even quickly, when we embrace the changes made. Enjoy the new you and all the benefits bestowed upon you!

    21 days well done Ghassan, I too had one dream of a cigarette early on in my quit, and I do believe it is the subconscious telling me something and I do not deny this, it is the changes you are making. Keep re-enforcing your own new desires into your brain. Keep re-enforcing your mantra and reasons to quit, I only had one dream but I kept repeating my own desires every day, then let it go.

    Hi Ghassan,
    It's completely normal to have such dreams. I am smoke free from 300+ days, still I get those dreams and I too get very upset in my dreams.
    Keep going. That Nicotine named monster will do every possible trick upon you to fool you. Stay alert. Best of luck.

    Congrats. 21 days is a big milestone!!

    I am closing in on 3 years since I quit and even now I get those dreams of having smoked and feeling annoyed at myself. Only to wake up and realize that it was a dream.

    You are doing great!
