If you dream of drinking alcohol, you may be exploring the idea of alcohol dependency. We usually dream of what we are not acknowledging. Being drunk can also suggest ‘intoxication’ or feelings of exhilaration that you are not expressing during daily life. Alcohol is a mood altering substance, which allows you to express your unbridled nature. The purpose of dreams is to face the truth about what we fail to acknowledge and help us to express our true nature. If alcohol or being drunk is the theme of the dream, you may have lost your feelings of sensitivity when relating to your environment. If you are dreaming of rubbing alcohol, you may be aware that a type of healing requires that you take difficult or painful steps.
