    Default Why am I always smoking in my daydreams?

    I've always wondered why I am always smoking in daydreams. Whenever I visualise myself doing something, making something, I'm always smoking. I've never been a smoker but have always visualised this way.
    It doesn't bother me but I'm curious whether you have are any theories.

    Perhaps it's the fact that so many of your heroes (at least musical ones) are smokers or were.

    Maybe it seems glamorous in a grungy way and that's how you see yourself.

    I would often imagine myself smoking a pipe. Then I finally got one.

    I don't know, I have no conscious desire to smoke. I don't consciously think smoking is glamorous.

    Maybe it's a subconscious connection between smoking and masculinity. Because my Dad smoked when I was a kid but I can't remember it. But then why would I only do it while daydreaming about making things.

    Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar...

    But what is it the rest of the time? I'm not sure I want to know, but I think I do.

    The idea of creating something like a tool of some kind, is also considered somewhat masculine in psychological terms.

    Yeah, nothing Freudian about it. At least I don't think so.

    i agree with juggernaut. if a lot of people you respect were smokers you might have positive associations with smoking. maybe subconsciously.

    also, i don't know if you are very anti-establishment or anti-authority, but smoking often goes along with that. now that smoking is no longer in vogue it is a way to stick it to the man.

    Yeah, I think you and juggernaut are on the right track.

    See, if it's unconscious, you wouldn't think so. That's how these things work.

    Well, that actually sounds more plausible, I guess. Sounds right to me.
