  •  Her entire life was painful. It didn't need to be (7+ / 0-)

    Thank you.  My Mom never wanted to die, but she just didn't know how to live.  

    I know guilt and shaming don't work for quitting the smokes, but sometimes I get those buggy dreams where I smoke "just one" cigarette and then in the dream it escalates into a pack, then I'm out buying a carton...  Even in my smoking dreams, I'm an addict.

    But now.. the dreams end with the nightmare of my Mom.  

    It's sick how mostly Republicans are against medical marijuana or legalization of the herb with benefits but yet they still insist that smoking is okay...  

    We sell something that is known to kill you and others around you.  But yet we imprison patients for smoking an item that helps then sleep, eases the anxiety, helps you eat...

    We live in a sad, sick society.  

    My Mom was living and dying proof.

    •  Yes we do live in a sad, sick society. Those (6+ / 0-)

      nightmares sound awful. My whole day is affected when I have bad nightmares. Thanks for talking to us.

      •  My yogi helped with the nightmares (6+ / 0-)

        he said it's like my "guides" trying to jolt me into awareness.  More like a nighttime nudge.  "guides" are left up to each of us individuals to mean what ever we want it to mean.  Right now, although it may sound silly, my "guides" in yoga and meditating are my actual yogi, George Harrison and Mister Rogers :)  

        They all tell me "Peace is always the appropriate response."

        I love that :)

        When I have smoking dreams, it usually means I'm stressed out, tired or just plain old still quitting after almost 2 decades.  :)

        I can handle nightmares.  I can learn from them.  It's the "triggers" that send me into a tornado of problems.
