I put on the patch for the first time yesterday due to having my tooth pulled out to avoid 'dry socket'
Anyway, I found it so hard to get to sleep I was figgitive all night. When I eventually fell asleep I woke up from the most terrifying thing. I felt a wet thing fall on my face almost like a wet cloth or something, I thought it was a bug or something and I jumped up out of my sleep at 4 am and hit myself in the face real hard.. right on the side where my tooth was pulled
I looked all over my bed and the floor for the bug but there was literally nothing.. it's true these vivid dreams it felt so real it was terrifying. I'm doing it again tonight so wish me luck. If anything falls on me tonight I'll let you's know

Hi there Mel...

 

You might try taking off the patch before you go to bed, and maybe that will curtail such vivid dreams!  Have one at the ready to slap on when you awaken in the a.m.

S.moking is N.ot an O.ption T.oday
Better to be a nonsmoker with an occasional desire to smoke, than a smoker with a constant desire to quit.

Welcome Mel, I agree with Marcie. Seems I've read here that most people take them off when they go to bed. Congrats on the quit and I hope you stay quit after your dental issues are fixed :)

Wow I had no idea how crazy patches could be till last night.... I dreamt that a virus took control of the world and killed SO MANY people... I was dying in the dream and was trying to get ahold of my mom so she could come see me and she couldn't make it in time...

Welcome Gotenks420, that is a scary dream! Why don't you take a minute and introduce yourself to everyone on the main board? There's a bunch of great people who would love to say hi :)

I take the patch off last thing at night and put a fresh patch on first think in morning. My dreams are weird enough without the patches.

ok, so two days ago, I had taken my patch off so I could smoke 1 cigarette (sometimes the craving STILL hits me after wearing the patch all day, but I'm down to 1 cigarette a day; woohoo!). I had stuck my patch to the side of a plastic cup and forgotten about it until last night when I saw it. Pulling it off the cup, I put it on my right arm thinking it wouldn't have an effect any longer but boy was I wrong. 

 

I am early in my recovery from alcohol/drugs. I have had some rough dreams here and there but last night surpassed all of my previous dreams, BY FAR. The dreams were so intense that, even when I was trying to pull out of my sleep this morning, my dreams kept sucking me right back into them. I had dreams of living in a huge, almost haunted, group mansion with other users (drinking and getting high). I was back with my ex who was cheating on me and, although we were living together again, I was alone for the most part. I was doing sexually perverse things, I was mean and nasty. At one point, my dad was in the dream and I was in my grandparents' house begging him for booze money and dope. Skipping forward, I went outside where a bunch of people were gathered and found tons of coins along the curbside of my parents' house and was super excited to have my booze money. I was pretty much feening for dope throughout the entire course of dreams. I was dark and miserable and consumed by cheating and self-absorbed things.

 

It was awful! Very interesting though because now I see that there are some deeply rooted things that need to be dealt with. It also just hit me that there are some things God's trying to show me pertaining to some dreams and messages I feel He's been trying to open my eyes to recently.

 

So, yeah.

Omg I completely agree. I take mine off a few hours before bed but already I've had some crazy dreams! Dream 1 my daughter classmate won millions on the lottery and asked me to help her as she's under age and shouldn't have been playing it. Dream 2, saved a tiny bird from a swimming pool, it was so real I could feel its claws on my hand, then every time I went back in the pool the cutest and most gorgeous ginger cat swam towards me, I had to try and work out how I could take him home! Dream 3, suddenly realised I hadn't taken my patch off only to discover about 18 patches all over my body! Dream 4, my ex manager turned out to be a firefighter. Seriously I'd hate to see what they would be like if I left it on later!

Hello Mel, got to say when I used to wear them years ago, like Moomin I used to take mine off a good hour or 2 before bed . . Now and again very rarely i forgot and the dreams were unbeleivable.
