Awhile back when I was 19years old, I was trying to quit smoking and just happened to be visiting the doctor for an over due check up. It was here
that I was recommended by the doctor to take a new drug "Chantix". I agreed because I couldn't fight the urges to smoke.
So I started taking chantix, a 1/2 pill in the morning and 1/2 pill at night with dinner. All was well until about 3-4 days into the regime. I was off
the "small dose" and taking the "regular dose" (full pill morning and night). After this I started having these weird dreams.
I started having very weird dreams. It wasn't like the normal dreams I was used to having (completely random location involving completely random
things). These dreams started happening from the time I closed my eye until the time I opened them, yes the dreams lasted the entire time I was
asleep. I would awake every morning after these dreams feeling as if I had been running a marathon all night, as if I had never gone to sleep in the
Alright so now you know the basis of what started the dreams. Now let me tell you about what was actually going on during them.
About 2-3 days into having these strange all night dreams, I started recognizing that what I was dreaming was actually what I was thinking about
before I had actually gone to sleep. It was as if I had went to bed and woke up in a completely different world or something like that. I would dream
about all sorts of crazy things like being in car accidents and just tragic things that would be death of myself or my family/friends. The dreams
would last the entire time I was asleep. I started to realized I could manipulate what I was dreaming by what thoughts I was having before I went to
sleep. So I started to do just that.
I had a girlfriend at the time "a real freak in the sheets" if you catch my drift. She would always be over at my house every night until she had to
be home. (curfew). So every night we would do crazy sexual things. Anyway I started to have these threesome and whatever sexual fantasies I could
think of. "Thoughts" These thoughts were not just imaginary because as soon as I went to sleep it started happening as if it were real. I know it
sounds so stupid, but I assure you that what I am saying is true and it really does happen. I was having dreams of all my sexual fantasies every
As crazy as that may sound it really left me extremely tired and cranky in the mornings because it felt as if I had never gone to sleep after waking
up. It almost cost me my job at the time because I flipped out on my boss for no apparent reason really, just the feeling of lack of sleep that was
making me so moody.
Anyway, I quit taking Chantix after about 45days because I had already quit smoking (thank you chantix) and I was just sick and tired of being tired
ALL the damn time. Every night was like a running marathon it was just ridiculous.
I figured I would tell this here since you are trying to control your dreams or what not. I suggest you look into exactly what they were putting into
chantix about 3years ago (when it first came out) and experiment from there. Especially if you're looking to control your dreams. Just a word of
advice be careful because a lot of the dreams I had in the start were completely terrifying and had to do with me dieing or friends and family dieing
so I don't recommend you take it if you have these types of thoughts.
