If you have recently quit smoking it is very common to dream that you are still smoking cigarettes. It often takes about 7 years forthese dreams to taper off, so hang in there! If you are not a smoker or haven’t smoked in more than a decade then a cigarette may represent a bad habit or negative behavior pattern of yours or of someone around you. Ask yourself if you have been habitually doing something that is not good for you or if someone around you is doing this.
