Dream symbols - drunk

A drunk dream may link to scenarios which are similar. If you are drunk then you are incapable. A drunk dream may be a symbol of your first day at a new workplace. The drunken fool representing your fear that people feel you are useless - like a drunken bum.

DRUNKS IN DREAMS:Understanding dreams is not so difficult. In practice dream symbols translate into certain words within the English language. For instance a "drunk" dream may simply capture an everyday thought such as "I really did get very emotional yesterday". In that way your dream picks out one features of drinking - they often get very emotional and say things that they would not normally say.

In practice drunks have several symbolic meanings. Here is the full list.
- "talking too much" (Was someone talking wildly and openly yesterday? A bit like someone who has been drinking?)
- "spontaneous" (did you do something wildly spontaneous yesterday? Did someone act like they had been drinking? Did you do something you might regret today?)
- "wild" (Has someone been acting wildly recently? Do you do something crazy yesterday? )
- "thinking how things can go wrong" (Were you thinking how something could go wrong yesterday? Are you worried that someone might spoil something?)
- "feeling like a loser" (Did you feel ashamed of yourself yesterday? Do you often worry that people look down upon you? Who would you describe as a "bum" from yesterday)
- "a situation out of control" (Think of a situation which was in complete chaos yesterday? It may have been anywhere and need not have involved drinking. How were things in danger of getting out of hand?)
- "incompetent" (Were you bumbling around yesterday? Did you show just how incapable you are of doing something?)
- "talking emotionally" (was someone talking in a very emotional way yesterday? Did you get all emotional yesterday? Did someone say something that the would not normally say yesterday?)

Its a fallacy that dreams capture unconscious thoughts - dreams represent thoughts that we are all too aware of. A typical dream would translate into the types of thoughts that we might write down in a diary or tell a best friend. Dreams represent your key thoughts which pinpoint the problems right now. Try to write down some quotes which capture your feelings right now and try to include the words and phrases above. For instance if you have been worried that others see you as a bum and a loser then your dream about being drunk may capture those worries. Its your minds way of saying "I feel like a bum".

Dreams can represent very sophisticated thoughts. For instance one dream in our database featured a drunken pirate and a dancing gypsy. The day before the dreamer had been flashed by his flatmate - she revealed her breasts in a spontaneous moment. The dreamer then pretended to ravage his flatmate. It was more a moment of fun than sexual attraction. The situation is clearly replayed in the dream. The dancing gypsy girl represented the dreamers flatmate and her wild behaviour. The drunken pirate symbolised the dreamers pretend ravaging (pirates were famous for ravaging women). The whole dream captures this out of control moment - a moment so typical of people who have drunk too much.
