Hell, yes! Yes! Food tastes awesome already, and the newspaper article says it'll take 2 weeks for it to taste like it used to! I'm so looking forward to the next couple of weeks!

My mood was better today. Well, yesterday I was nicotine stressed and had other sources of stress, truth be told, whilst today I manage to keep myself in my centre. Oh, and thanks for the other tip, Dan. tounge2

I found that my sense of smell seemed supercharged the first couple days after i quit, then I got used to my newly aquired senses, and I ceased to notice it as much after a couple days.

Four days!

Okay, I'll stop celebrating every day. But I'm so proud of myself ^^

No, keep celebrating. Up until day fifteen perhaps. Then it gets a bit silly.

i think you should stop because this way you give to much credit to the addiction...

fell the joy of being free! you made it, and it is over now, you beat it and now it is gone! celebrate yes, count no!

this is just my point of view from my experience... any way well done man! wink5

#87: Patches Author: burning_idle PostPosted: Mon 09 Jun, 2008

So I'm finally getting round to giving up smoking, properly this time, I've discovered that doing it on my own steam isn't working. Bear with me, this is about dreams.

I spoke with my gp and we came to the conclusion that the best bet for me is to use nicotine patches, since lately, due to various stresses and my mood, I've been smoking more heavily.

Anyway, I picked up a pack of patches at the pharmacy today, I won't start wearing them until tomorrow, but when reading the packet this morning I noticed that one of the side effects of the patches was nightmares. I thought that that sounded pretty odd, but also fairly cool, I wondered if anyone had had experience with this?

If it is true then my DJ may be becoming more active for the next few months!

I haven't used them, but back when I planned on using them I looked into that and you can find people who tell their dreams while on it. They aren't all nightmares, lots of them are just really weird and cool dreams.

As for the quitting smoking-apparently Chantix has a huge success rate, and I was just recently prescribed it. It uses a very organized system so you can stay on top of things. It also is supposed to give crazy dreams.

Well I put my first patch on this morning, and it's already working to some extent, I'm not getting the craving for nicotine but I am still getting the craving for the action of smoking itself. I think the habit will be harder to break than the addiction, if that makes sense.

I'll report on any increase on dream activity tomorrow. Here's hoping that quitting smoking has some wonderful nocturnal side effects! I wonder if it will increase my chances of becoming lucid?

Yeah I know exactly what you mean. Just know that if you decide to smoke a cigarette, you'll be pissed at yourself right after lighting it up.

Look at it as a day-by-day thing. Today, I will not smoke a cigarette. Don't think of the future, just the here and now.
