 Hi Debra,

Welcome.  I smoked about the same length of time.  You can do this.  The January group link is below and the February group is another option.  Use all the resources here to help you.  This place gave me all the tools I need to quit and stay quit.  

Congrats on quitting.

Welcome Debra and congrats on 1 month!  This forum is awesome! I have found it to be a tremendous help during those difficult times as I would come here and read articles or posts whenever those nasty “thoughts” about smoking would appear. Also I keep lots of mints and ice cold water handy.  Read all of the tips on here that you can, because it is so important to educate yourself on what to expect, etc.  And, if you are having a difficult day, post and let us know you need support!  Stay strong and remember you CAN do this!

Has anyone here been experiencing nightmares?  I am not using any nicotine replacements or drugs to quite.   Has there been anyone commenting on the nightmares or anything written about them.  They are quite unnerving and I wondered if there was some psychological studies on dreams when quitting smoking.

I have been keeping the ice cold drinks on hand as I noticed I seem to be constantly thirsty.

Hi Debra,

Nightmares is a broad term but I can say that I had smoking dreams that I considered 'nightmares'.  I would wake up so sad that I had smoked but I had not.  As I look back I attribute  the dreams to that constant craving and brain healing esp in the first several months.  I had less and less dreams like that as time when on.
