Anybody can get surprised by one of these dreams. I learned that one can be triggered by my being out of touch with something that has me stressed (so I'm not aware I have an issue). I've seen the dreams since then, NOT as a sign of wanting to smoke but a sign that I am suppressing something I need to acknowledge and work through.
As far as COFFEEQUEEN's concerns, YES IT DEFINITELY GETS BETTER. But you need to learn new coping skills in order to help that preoccupation fade out of your mind. This is to me the biggest challenge (not withdrawal after all) AND THE BEST OPPORTUNITY for growth!
Life really gets better -- when you work with the new but slow process of "Changing" your Mind. Check out all the support and tools you can for the long haul. It's a lifestyle change, and in that first year Everything is a new challenge.
With grace and self esteem, honor the Passionate Tiger in You. Refresh your personal high regard (daily) in order to live happy, joyous and free.
