There are many different interpretations of dreams about alcohol. You need to look at the dream as a whole to get the full picture. Consider where you are drinking, why, and what you are drinking. It is also important to consider your own views about drinking alcohol. Perhaps you are teetotal or a social drinker, or maybe you drink too much.
Here Are Some Possible Dream Interpretation Meanings for Alcohol
Drinking Bitter or Strong Alcohol
If you dream about strong alcohol, for example, whiskey, you may have strong feelings about something. Perhaps it is time that you made these feelings known to your family and friends. On the other hand, you might be doing something negative in your waking life. Maybe you should reconsider your actions. An alternative meaning is that you have been too harsh towards someone, perhaps at work. It may be time to make up with them and apologize.
Dreaming of Alcohol Addiction
To dream of alcohol addiction could mean that you are worried that you have started to depend on alcohol or that you are concerned for a friend who seems to be drinking too much. It could also be a symbol of something you have lost control of, not necessarily alcohol.
If you see yourself drinking too much in a dream even though you don’t in waking life, it can mean that you have little self-worth. Perhaps you are afraid of other people seeing the real you. Maybe it’s time to open up as it’s the only way to see who your real friends are.
Drinking Alcohol in your Dream as a Celebration
This can be a positive dream. You may realize that all you have worked towards has become a reality and success is close.
However, if you dream that you have a hangover after a night of drinking at a celebration, such as a wedding, it can mean that you have mixed feelings about the celebration. Perhaps a friend of yours is getting married and you’re not sure that the couple is a good match. Alternatively, it can mean that you have mixed feelings about something in your life, and it is time to decide what to do.
Dreaming your Health is at Risk
It is not healthy to drink too much alcohol and if you dream that you are drinking a lot, it can indicate that you are worried about your health. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you do drink too much. It could just indicate health problems in general. Perhaps you need to make changes in your life, such as altering your diet and exercising so that you lead a healthy lifestyle. Maybe you feel guilty that you aren’t looking after yourself as you should.
Understanding the Types of Alcohol as a Dream Symbol
What are you drinking? Is it whiskey, vodka, or tequila? Perhaps you are drinking champagne or wine, or maybe it’s beer. The different types of alcohol can give added insight into what your dream means.
Hard Liquor in Dreams:
If you dream of such drinks as Bacardi, gin, vodka, and whiskey, you are probably going through difficult times. Alternatively, it can mean that you have strong feelings for someone or something. Perhaps it is time you did something about it.
However, if you see alcohol in your dream used as a chemical, perhaps in a science laboratory, it can mean that you are going to have some luck shortly.
Hard liquor can also be called spirits, and surprisingly, to dream of spirits can be a sign that you need to become more spiritual.
Dreaming of Champagne:
We often drink champagne at a celebration like a wedding or an anniversary party. If you dream about champagne, it is usually a positive sign. Good things are happening, but you might not appreciate them. It is time to reflect on the positive aspects of your life.
Dreaming of Wine:
Associated with wine are feelings of companionship and complimenting others. To dream of wine can mean that you have good friends. However, alternatively, it can indicate that you are lonely and want to make new friends. You have to compare the dream to your waking life.
If you see yourself drinking white wine, it means that you are approaching a period of calmness. You won’t be having arguments with your friends and work will go smoothly.
However, red wine can denote personal pleasures and desires which could lead to trouble and loss of friendship.
The word ‘wine’ is pronounced the same as ‘whine’ which means to complain continually. If you dream of wine, it could mean that you have been complaining a lot lately. On the other hand, it might be that someone you know has been whining and it’s getting on your nerves.
Dreaming of Beer:
Beer is commonly drunk in a relaxing setting with friends and family. However, as with all alcohol, it can be bad for your health. Beer in a dream can have two meanings. It could indicate that you are drinking too much. On the other hand, it can be that you need to find a balance between work and play.
