Drinking dreams

Hey everyone I haven't posted in awhile but I've been sober and reading people's posts. Today is day 103 for me, this is the longest Ive ever been sober. Last night I had a drinking dream that was really disturbing to me. In my dream I drank heavily and then I sobered up and my family told me all the things I did while drunk and I had no memory of it. When I woke up I had to calm myself down by saying it was just a dream. It felt so real though, there were many times I would drink and people would tell me what I said and did and I would have no memory of it. That's probably why it scared me so much. Does anyone else have drinking dreams that seem so realistic?

Congrats on triple digits! Yep, drinking dreams are very, very common and can be very vivid. But they are simply dreams - not reality. We can have vivid dreams about lots of different things, and sometimes drinking will find it's way into our thoughts too. If nothing else it's a good reminder of why we don't drink anymore, right?

Congrats on 103 days!

I've only had one drinking dream since I've stopped drinking, but it was also very realistic... it was scary, but it was also a reminder of why its important to be sober!

Yes. I am just over one year sober and I had two (two nights in a row) just out of the blue. Totally weirded me out for a bit. I just kept reminding myself that it was just a dream and that I didn't really drink, nor did I even want to.

I get them now and again, they can be quite a ride!!

But dreams, and thoughts are not actions, pushing through is all we can do!!
