I had a dream last night.

I took up smoking to lose weight and was desperate to hide it from my family. Also, I was taking a college history class.

From the online dream “translators”, I’ve conjured up the following:

If you do not smoke in waking life and dream that you are smoking, then it indicates that you are trying to shield yourself and others against your emotions. You have trouble letting others in. The dream may also be a metaphor for an addictive relationship or habit in your waking life.


To dream that you are in college indicates that you are going through some social or cultural changes. You want to expand your knowledge and awareness. It also suggests that now is a good time for you to experiment and try new things. If you had gone to college in your past, then also consider your personal experiences and memories of your college days. However, if you are currently in college, then it may be a reflection of your current surroundings. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you will achieve your goals through perseverance and hard work. You may be going through a period of stress in your life.


To dream that you are in a classroom indicates that you are learning an important life lesson. Alternatively, it symbolizes personal growth. You are learning something about yourself.

All of these are true. I absolutely have trouble letting people in, and I am trying to give up a nightly wine habit (I like my wine but it’s causing me to gain weight). I’m also trying to give up eating so much food/carbs and trying to lose weight. I’m trying to change a lot of habits and it’s really hard. I think I am learning a lot about myself and it’s overwhelming. Kind of interesting to see how that dream represents all of that.

Now what to do about it? Keep going, I guess.
