Thinking in a foreign language?

I was just reading through the comments on a few entries back "forgetting a language", and it got me wondering about something I often find myself thinking about.

Do people that have been living in a country for several years where their native language isn't spoken begin to think in the foreign language because they become so accustomed to speaking it in daily life? Or do they still think in their native language?

I hope I managed to explain myself clearly enough there, haha. Also, apologies if this has already been talked about in past entries - I am a newbie to the community ;)
