About Nancy Wagaman, M.A.
Dream Symbol: drinking alcoholic beverages
If you dream that you are drinking alcohol, consider your feelings during the dream. Drinking can represent:
- A desire to numb-out and escape a problem or situation
- A desire to feel more relaxed or more interactive with others
- A desire to be accepted or go along with the crowd, especially to the detriment of yourself or your integrity
- Boredom or the need for more fun or excitement in your real life in general (totally separate from actual alcohol)
Using this Dream DictionaryTips to Understand Dream Meaning
Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:
- Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
- Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
- Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
