I dream of them

Last night I dreamt that I found a single cigarette rattling around in a re-discovered pack. I'd said before I quit that I could smoke any random cigarettes I found if it looked smokeable. But that I wouldn't buy or ask for any cigarettes.

In my dream, I snuck outside while the Vol-in-Law was still asleep and smoked it. But I decided to savor the cigarette - to only smoke half of it - and save the rest for later. It was raining and when I bent down to wipe the burning tip from it, I sort of slipped and the whole cigarette got wet - ruining it for any future smoking - so I just had to throw it away.

I'm not sure what the dream means. But it might mean that pleasure deferred is pleasure endangered. Seek instant gratification - now!

I'm pretty sure that isn't what it means.
