The meaning of Alcohol in dream | Dream interpretation


Dreams that feature alcohol can be interpreted in two ways. They could be a warning that you need to take it easy or they could be a suggestion that your life needs more stimulation and excitement. If, however, a drunk appeared in your dream or you got drunk and had a hangover, this may suggest that you have been overdoing it recently. It can also refer to the way you deal with difficult feelings by drowning them in drink. On the other hand, do you feel drunk with success and if you do, is your unconscious warning you to reign in your exuberance as it is unsettling to those around you? Don’t forget the Latin phrase ‘in vino veritas’ (wine reveals the truth) and pay attention to what you and other people say in your dream over a glass of wine or beer.

To see whisky in bottles symbolizes your alertness, carefulness and protective nature.

If you are drinking alone, this signifies a selfishness that is driving friends away. To dream of drinking wine refers to festivity, celebration, and companionship. To dream that you are breaking wine bottles signifies overindulgence and lack of control.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Any alcoholic substance has a numbing effect, dulls the mind and feelings. May suggest hypersensitivity; a need for relaxation, meditation and raising the energy field to maintain inner balance.

A need to open up and verbalize without feeling intimidated. Also, symbol of transformation, as Jesus turned water into wine; in this sense the transformation of consciousness to receive higher spiritual awareness.

Understanding the symbol of alcohol in your dreams depends on the relationship you have with it in daily life.

If you drink regularly, you need to look at the other details of your dream more carefully. However, if you drink rarely or never, then this dream could represent a need for you to escape from your daily stress and your desire to get quick relief.

The alcohol could be suggesting a need for healing and getting in balance. Your unconscious mind may be suggesting outrageous things in hopes that you get the message to “have fun, dream dreams, and get out of your own head!” Please keep in mind that the purpose of dreams is to raise our consciousness and to assist us in having better lives.

The message in the dream about alcohol is most likely not encouraging you to drink but it may represent a need to feel better or get better.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda

The meaning of consuming an alcoholic beverage depends on certain other specific contents of the dream as well as on the individual’s associations with alcohol. Negatively, alcohol represents escapism, addiction, and self-destructive tendencies. More positively, alcohol may indicate simple socializing or the release of one’s inhibitions. Alcohol has also been utilized as a religious symbol, as in the “new wine” of the Christian tradition, and to indicate certain mystical states in Sufism.

THE EFFECT OF ALCOHOL ON SLEEP

Alcohol can have a significant impact on sleep and sleeping patterns. Under the influence of alcohol, the quantity of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep decreases and Stage 4 sleep increases, creating the impression that one has slept more soundly under the influence of alco- hol.

Excessive use of alcohol disrupts the natural pattern of sleep, so that chronic alcoholics who have completely abstained for extended periods of time have been shown to exhibit abnormal sleep patterns. It has been speculated that the disrup- tion of sleep patterns—particularly the reduction of REM sleep (often associated with dreaming)— by alcoholism results in irreversible brain damage. ...
