Yeah, I definitely get similar dreams. I remember getting them all the time when I first quit. Even after I wake up, they still put me in a weird mood for the next few hours. I still get them occasionally even though it’s two years later, especially when I’ve had a stressful day. They are much rarer now though — I only get them every few months.
