To dream of cigarettes represents addictive thinking patterns, bad habits, or something you feel emotionally dependent on. Noticing yourself doing something that you know is wrong.
Having difficulty giving up something that you know may not be in your best interest long-term. Smoking in dreams may reflect overeating, infidelity, flirting, sexual excess, or an abuse of power.
A cigarette in a dream may be a sign that it’s time to cut back a bit or show yourself some harsh honesty.
Example: A woman dreamed of smoking a cigarette. In waking life she was flirting with a man when she already had a boyfriend.
Example 2: A man dreamed of smoking a cigarette. In waking life he was undergoing spiritual testing which involved abstinence and was still occasionally masturbating.
Example 3: A woman dreamed of herself smoking when in real life she didn’t smoke. In waking life she was devoutly Christian, but was enjoying herself repeatedly getting revenge on her husband for cheating on her. She was enjoying wasting his phone, destroying his cellphone, and doing all kinds of people bad stuff to him behind his back to feel better about herself.
