I have been trying to quit smoking lately- it's a terrible habit, and want to stop. However, I have a bit of an odd problem. Normally i don't dream. I have dreamless sleep for 8 hours til I wake up, refreshed.. But since i have stopped smoking(or trying too) I have had vivid, lucid nightmares that are scaring the bejesus outta me! I have only have a few fears, and one is clowns.. I frickin HATE clowns! I will scream like a girl, and run out of the room if I see one. But yet, in my dreams, clowns with glowing red eyes, and spiky teeth, ar chasing after me with blody axes, and knives, taunting me, and in the end I scare myself awake, in a cold sweat, squezzing the stuffing out of my pillow. So as you can imagine, I get up at 3:00 AM, and light one up due to the stress.
Has anybody else noticed Nicotine working as a dream suppressant? I swear that's what it does to me.. Damn, I don't wanna have any more ngihtmares tonight..
