Alcohol dream meanings

Alcohol Dream Meaning

The universe of dreams is telling you a big message here. When you spend a lot of energy studying people it can mean you just can't work them out. When it comes to holding a grudge, being flirty, and drinking far too many wines -- I was that girl. This dream is about your waking life getting a bit emotional, teary, irate, and crazy.

Discovering more about the world around you is an important part of growing up and this is what the dream of alcohol is all about. Let me tell you, if you drink alcohol in moderation, then it signifies success. To drink too much is a sign to be careful of getting into a difficult situation as this may require a rather embarrassing apology. Seeing someone totally wrecked in the dream can indicate the perceptions of others around you --- totally not reality!

Alcohol consumption can affect how we tend to dream and the details of your dream can be a message from your subconscious mind. Of course, you know that alcohol has often been used to shape us culturally and through this dream interpretation. Let's get to basics - the word “alcohol” is of Arabic descent. It is the cornerstone of many traditions and features in many religious rituals across the world. For this substance to be featured in your dream indicates you are going around in circles trying to come up with a solution.

What does it mean to dream of drunkenness in dreams?

Being drunk is a strange thing even in the waking world. When you dream of drunkenness it shows that it is important to make sure you do not hide away your feelings. When alcohol shows up in your dream, it might demonstrate that you have a somewhat mundane existence at the moment and you are a bit bored, and you are trying to progress your life. Each drink can mean different things and I'd like to take you through this.

What does alcohol mean in dreams?

You know and I do that alcohol does not nourish, but it pulls down; it does not strengthen but excites and exhausts, as every alcohol usage is necessarily followed by a period of depression, and this is inevitably unfavorable to you in waking life. You must reflect on this as part of your dream. To have consumed alcohol in your dream shows that you have a creative streak that is lost at the moment. If you have children it is important to spend quality time with them. We have a heated generation of change, and it is important to make sure that children are taken into account, and that work or career follows, but it does not take over your life. Remember to think about what's important to you in your life, and stop trying to put up a smoke screen, sometimes you take life far too seriously. 

To dream of whiskey, gin, vodka, rum (Bacardi) or other spirits generally means things are going to be content for some time. To see alcohol as a chemical in your dream is a good omen, especially in association with scientific experiments or research.

One of the signs of the times is the movement of alcohol in bars. If you dream that you are drinking in a bar it suggests happy times ahead. To drink white wine denotes a period of calm times. Consuming red wine warns about personal desires and pleasures, as they are likely to result in scandal. Drinking alcohol at a celebration suggests that you are feeling good about the decisions you have recently made, and you are counting on future success.

Drinking excessively suggests that you may have negative feelings about yourself, and fear being discovered for what you really are. I also think that alcohol abuse is present in our dreams because of the statistics. The national institute of Alcohol abuse has reported in 2015 that they believe almost 10% of the USA population suffers from alcohol abuse and binge drinking seems to be the most popular form of abuse, and around 9.8 million men suffer from AUD which stands for alcohol use disorder and 5.8 million women. So that is a considerable amount of the population.

What is the 1930s meaning of dreaming of drink/alcohol?

Seeing is believing. More than that, it is often knowing and remembering. To dream of drinks (in a pub or on a bar) is of little value, compared with the observation of actually drinking the alcohol in your dream. The meaning here is that every opportunity should be taken of exhibiting the very best standards and to be sensitive to other people’s feelings. The analysis is so essential to the understanding of many people, that it is indispensable to the proper teaching of finding out what makes others tick.

If others are drinking alcohol, and this is the main subject of your dream, you should be prepared work hard at a project. No failure should discourage the dreamer in establishing this mode of approach. To dream about serving alcohol could indicate that you are going to be content with the way things are. A dream where you drink in moderation implies that you are going to be successful in your endeavors. Seeing yourself drinking in a bar denotes there are happy times ahead of you. 

What does drinking wine in a dream mean?

In the case you see yourself drinking white wine or champagne in your dream, then this means you should celebrate because it denotes that you are going to enjoy a sense of calmness in your life, the more sparkling wine the more “sparkle” will enter your life. There is little doubt that seeing alcohol in a dream can occur in many different forms. In the history of wine drinkers, it has been documented that the role of wine can, in fact, promote your health.

At the same time, we normally see a warning on the bottle. Wine, in fact, both heats and moistens our bodies, and wine in excess can make the body cold. Research has shown that in some instances wine can obfuscate our own intellect. So, in dreams, red wine indicates a loss of intellect. Alternatively, depending on the circumstances in your dream, alcohol can represent that you have the potential to achieve much more than you are achieving at the moment and you need to promote your own interests and ideas. On the positive side of life, it could imply that you are enjoying yourself and just bumbling along looking for your next opportunity.

Can alcohol cause vivid dreams? 

The answer is yes! There was some research at the laboratory of alcohol at St  Elizabeth Hospital in the 1960s. This study looked at the withdrawal symptoms of alcohol. Through the study, vivid dreams were reported, in fact, some of these dreams turned out to be hallucinations or nightmares. During this study, some of the subjects were alcoholics and when they stopped drinking they had some strange mental visions. So what does alcohol cause us to have such vivid dreams? In the first part of sleeping when we have had a few drinks our blood sugar will fall,  which means we do not sleep “as deep” as we should. This will lead to a more disturbed sleep and implies that you will be more tired when you wake up. Heavy drinking can produce episodes of nightmares and cause anxiety dreams. The severity of the nightmares will depend on the amount of drink you have consumed.

The actual drinking can result in a reduction of what we called REM sleep and therefore this reduction will lead to PSD which is known as primary sleep disorder. Alcohol is what is known as being “diuretic” therefore, this means you urinate allot more than normal. Thus, this will lead to being rather dehydrated so you may dream of water. If you have downed that sneaky tequila last night and you are wondering what your dream of alcohol means it turns out that the dream psychologists just think you are dreaming of a transition moment, where the waking world merges with our dream world. Did you know that if you eat lots of sweets, there is a likelihood that you will have a dream that featured alcohol? To improve your health, it will be best if you avoid eating sweets. I know, easier said than done! Sometimes, if you have been drinking heavily and you manage to stagger and find your bed it is not uncommon to dream you are still drinking. Also, dreaming of a lover is often frequent when you have had a few drinks, especially as you do not sleep as deep.

What does it mean when you are drinking alcohol in the dream?

When you drink alcohol in your dream, it could be that you are having a little too much. In most cases, dreams are all about what we are not acknowledging in real life. Feeling drunk in your dream can mean that, you are intoxicated or you have a feeling of exhilaration. There has been scientific research on drinking and how this affects our mental state. Some research by the Global Drug Survey that looked at 30k people’s alcohol consumption that having a drink makes us more confident, relaxed, attractive and also content. In the same study, respondents also reported some negative traits such as being aggressive, tired and tearful. What I am trying to say here is that these feelings can be applied to your dream. Drinking the hard-core spirits in a dream can indicate that you are feeling rather confident in matters of the heart.

This dream can also affect how you are feeling during normal waking hours. It can mean you are struggling to express yourself. Remember, alcohol is responsible for mood alteration and when we have a heavy night on the town, it allows one to express their hidden nature. The dream enables you to face the truth about what you fail to realize in real life - and helps you to be your true self. Now, if alcohol is the main theme in your dream could imply that you have lost your own sensitivity and your subconscious mind is trying to make you see that you might need to be more relaxed in life.

In older dream books seeing too much alcohol in your dream is a sign of gossip on the way, so take care after encountering this type of dream to avoid becoming a victim. If you are a person who doesn’t drink much alcohol in real life - and you have a dream about drinking alcohol spiritually - it can mean that you will need to focus on yourself for a while. As I mentioned before, if you drink alcohol, then a dream about alcohol is a normal occurrence. But if you keep on dreaming about alcohol then this can imply you need to think about how you relax in life.

What does it mean to dream of alcoholics anonymous?

Many people who have too much to drink often face depression and anxiety. To dream of alcoholics anonymous indicates that you come across somebody who is weak with or morally inadequate.  We all know people who go to the bar after work -perhaps you have read about the movie star who has ended up being alcoholic.

Sometimes we read about the housewife who cannot start the day without a drink. There is a social stigma about “over drinking.” In dreams, if you visited an alcoholic anonymous group this can indicate that you will have excessive problems with others in the near future. The good news is that you will be able to control this outcome.  If your partner is a drunk in the dream it can indicate that a relationship will soon be challenged. If your partner drinks in real life then it is not uncommon to have this dream.

What does it mean to sell alcohol in your dream?

Alcohol consumption is on the rise and so too are bars. Obviously, as the number of bars increases in society so does the consumption of alcohol. Alcohol can be bought in many different outlets such as stores, restraints’, bars and even gasoline stations. Selling alcohol in your dream indicates thinking about how to improve your life in many different contexts. The type of retail outlet where you sold the beer needs to be taken into consideration.

In my experience, this dream is normally in relation to established rules and controls. The reason, because alcohol on average is normally regulated and there are generally formal regulations overproduction, wholesale distribution and finally retail of alcohol. It is not uncommon when you see yourself selling alcohol in a dream - there might be some moral rules that you are failing to follow. It could also simply be that you need to watch your diet and make sure you eat properly. 

What does it mean to work in a bar in a dream?

Dreaming that you are selling alcohol in a bar in your dream can often indicate a situation that will surprise you. Or you are going to be surprised by an action which you will take in connection to work.

 What does it mean if you are drinking beer in the dream?

Beer is one of America’s most favored drinks. With around six billion gallons consumed annually, so it’s no wonder you had a dream of a beer. There are only 1,440 breweries in the US but only four have about 95% of the market so the type of beer you dreamed of is probably from one of these breweries. For this dream meaning, I will divide the meaning into either: ales and lagers. Beer in studies boosts confidence and relaxes you. The bottom line is that beer is featured in dreams when you want to unwind in life.

Sipping on a beer in a dream can indicate a heated argument in spiritual terms, this is due to the fact that beer needs to be fermented at a high temperature (56-77F) Larger drinking in a dream could also be a reflection of laziness or a desire to take time off from your normal duties. Ale drinking in a dream if often connected to how you approach matters in your career. If you see yourself pulling a pint of beer in your it means that you are experiencing excessive enjoyment or pleasure. You tend to devote all your efforts and time to a particular situation - ignoring everything else. 

What is a spiritual meaning of alcohol?

I have touched on the meaning of the word in the opening paragraph, but I want to go into a little more detail here. Spiritually, the word alcohol comes from an Arabic word “al-Kuhl” that means “body eating spirit,” which has roots to the English word, ghoul. The definition of the word “ghoul” means an evil demon. In the middle east, a ghoul was said to eat human bodies or stealing corpses. Yes, I know not nice! In alchemy, alcohol is used to extract the soul essence from an entity, and this corresponds to the paganism use of alcohol to extract essences from essential oils.

Another popular use of alcohol spiritually is to cleanse, as alcohol is also used to sterilize medical equipment. When you drink alcohol, it extracts the essence from your soul and makes your body to be more vulnerable to other entities that are of low frequencies, and this is why some alcoholic drinks are called spirits. And this is the reason why, when you consume alcohol in large quantities, you will black out and not be able to remember what happened. 

What is the spiritual meaning of blacking out due to alcohol?

I am going to give you an overview of the spiritual meaning of “blacking out.” I myself (in my youth) blacked out on wine and I always wondered spiritually why. After doing much research the reason why you black out is that the good soul is supposed to be inside your body -- before consuming alcohol. After a few drinks, you may have polluted your body and it cannot stand the pollutants. Being unable to tolerate the drink it leaves you open spiritually, allowing a dark entity to take charge of your whole being. Remember that, our bodies are vehicles for spirits when one leaves, another one takes control of it.

So, after drinking alcohol, your normal spirit leaves and a dark spirit takes over. And this is the reason why when one is drunk, they tend to experience a change of voice, have a yearning for harmful substances, get involved in sexual promiscuity, destroy property, and many other negative things. Of course, this is the spiritual reasons and I am not saying that these are true but they do give food for thought!

What does it mean to see yourself as an alcoholic in your dream?

Alcohol is one of the most widely used addictive drugs in the country, most people drink socially and do not suffer from being addicted. Liquor is widely available and we see it every day. If in your dream you cannot confine yourself to just social drinking and alcohol is abused in anyway it can indicate a challenge with being socially accepted in a waking situation. 

Seeing yourself as an alcoholic in your dream is a sign that you are going to have to admit to your weakness in front of people who will want an explanation of why things are the way they are, sometimes we turn to a drink when we feel somewhat stressed, and in dreams being an alcoholic indicates you need time to turn off and relax. 

What does it mean to dream of a beer mug?

To drink from a tankard or glass beer mug has many spiritual meanings which I will outline here. Pub-goers loved drinking out of fancy tankards back in the Victorian times and the 10-sided pint mug was popular. Today, we do not tend to drink from this type of glass but at times it may appear in our dreams. |Seeing such a dimpled glass in your dream indicates that you will encounter a bittersweet situation. The beer mug is a representation of a vacation or break which will free you from any complications.

This break has been earned through hard work, planning, and preparations and thus, you are going to enjoy a good old holiday. To drink from a pint glass indicates a possible carefree feeling, and confidence - that everything is going to work out for the greater good.

Dreaming of drinking gin in older dream books indicates that actions may be dishonest or underhand and lead to a difficult time.  If you are a man and you dream of gin, you are likely to meet your soul mate who will have excellent qualities and be able to create order and comfort in the home. This is quite an old-fashioned meaning! If you are a woman and you dream of gin in ancient dream books it denotes that you are going to experience numerous courtesies from men. Drinking gin in the company of others can mean that you are going to encounter a celebration which could be either an anniversary or a wedding. You will have a chance to socialize, go out and have fun as it is guaranteed after such a dream. Drinking a gin straight is a sign that you are likely going to make a rash decision. If you drink gin with a tonic, then it means that you are going to have an improvement in your affairs. Drinking gin in the company of animals in your dream is an indicator that you are going to meet old friends shortly.  

What does it mean to see yourself overindulge in drinking?

If you get hammered in your dream then this is likely to symbolize your own tendency to judge others. If we turn to The National Institute of Alcohol and Abuse they believe that binge drinking is when we have more than five drinks in a few hours. Binge drinking in dreams suggests that something you have been putting off for while needs your attention. We all love to go out on the town sometimes or stay in with that bottle of wine. Seeing yourself binge drinking in a dream is an indicator that, you have a desire to transition your life or even at least to discover other strategies to adjust your life course. What has been preventing you from fulfilling your goals in life? If you went out binge drinking and had a weird dream then this could just be the alcohol itself and the dream meaning should not be taken literally!

What is the biblical meaning of alcohol?

Most Christianity religion believes that alcohol is a forbidden substance that should not be taken by those who profess the religion. It is considered wrong and sinful. In the bible, there are various verses which mention about alcohol.  Alcohol is mentioned during the time of Abraham in Genesis 14 verse 18 where Melchizedek brought to Abraham bread and wine. The Hebrew word for wine is Yayin, which is found 130 times in the bible and it means fermented wine. If alcohol is taken in excess, it can make one drunk as in Genesis 9 verses 21 where Noah drunk too much Yayin and became drunk.  Nabal in 1 Samuel 25 and verses 36; Lot in Genesis 19 verses 30 to 36.

In Deuteronomy 14 and verse 26, God told his people to enjoy Yayin during yearly festivals. The Leviticus priests were commanded by God to include it in the sacrifices as a portion and in Exodus 29 and verses 40, it was supposed to include a drink offering. From the above, there is a way that alcohol can be used in the wrong or right way, and the choice is yours. Fermented wine comprises alcohol content of between 10 and 14 percent. The high alcoholic drinks available today were not sold during biblical times. Today we have alcohol with a content of over 50 percent, which is made from a distilled grain-based mash or other sources. 

The dangers of this particular alcohol is that in some cases they cause alcoholism. In Psalms 104 and verse 15, the Bible says that God gave them wine to make men glad. In the new testament, oinos is the Greek word which is used to describe wine. John the Baptist didn’t take it because it was written and prophesized that he will not as written in Luke 1 and verse 15. Jesus did drink the Oinos as written in Luke 7 and verse 34 and Matthew 11 and verse 19. Jesus did drink wine in moderation. The first miracle Jesus did was to change water into wine – the Oinos. 

Jesus has given a parable about the fermenting process of wine in Matthew 9 and verse 17 where the skin of animals was used instead of bottles and cans. Apostle Paul talked in Ephesians 5 verse 18 of the Ephesians stated that people should not get drunk with Oinos, and Oinos later instructed Timothy to drink a little wine for the stomach and his frequent illness. This is written in 1 Timothy 5 and verse 23.  It means that a small quantity of wine can be a good thing - for the stomach. 

Both the new and old testament have commands that prohibit the excessive drinking of alcohol which causes drunkenness which is the works of Galatians 5 and verse 21, it states that when you are undisciplined, you will become drunk, and that is why Jesus in Luke 21 and verses 34, He warns his disciples against getting drunk.  Paul in 1 Corinthians 5 and verses 11 to 13 prohibits the Corinthians against associating with anybody who cannot control their drinking. 1 Corinthians 6 verses 9 to 10 talks of drunkenness not being able to enter the kingdom of God. In Timothy verse three, the Bible talks about those who should be ordained in the ministry of Jesus Christ – they should not be drunks.  Isaiah 5 verses 22 criticizes those who are champions at mixing drinks. Proverbs 23 verses 20 to 21 says excessive drinkers are sinning. In Proverbs 20 and verse 1, it says that, if used improperly, wine becomes a deceiver and mocker. So, I know allot to take in but there are some key warnings from a biblical perspective. Try not to let drink control you I believe is the hidden message biblically.

What does it mean to dream of your child or baby drinking alcohol? 

If we are worried about anything then to dream of a child or baby is drunk is what I call a reflective dream. Sometimes we can dream of certain people drunk. To dream that your baby or child consumed alcohol in is just a reflection of your own anxieties. Often, as parents we do worry, we try to do the right thing for our children. Drinking alcohol in dreams is also associated with social confidence or the fact that we are worried about what people think. To see your baby or child drunk after consuming alcohol can be a somewhat terrifying dream, especially as we have little control of the dream state. 

These dreams can sometimes arise when we forced focus on what we are missing in life. This could be family, friends or even a romantic partner. These dreams can trigger you to “think” about how you act with others. To dream of a son or daughter drinking alcohol or who appears to be drunk in the dream can indicate that you are struggling with the relationship. There may be worries and anxieties but remember as parents we worry all the time and this dream is just a reflection of your inner fears.

In your dream, you may have any of the following: 

Drunk alcohol. Served spirits such as whiskey, gin, vodka etc. Drunk too much alcohol. Used alcohol as a chemical. Drunk alcohol in a bar. Drunk white wine. Drunk red wine. Other people are drinking alcohol. Made alcohol.

Positive changes are afoot if:

You hid away your feelings while drinking the alcohol. Things were difficult in the dream. You were not sensitive to other people’s feelings, during your dream. Sources: “Do emotions related to alcohol consumption differ by alcohol type? An international cross-sectional survey of emotions associated with alcohol consumption and influence on drink choice in different settings”  

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of alcohol: 

Enjoying. Worried. Content. Sad. Jolly. Happy. Grateful. Surprised. Happy. Having fun.
