To dream that you are drinking alcohol in excess signifies feelings of insecurity and regret.
You may be worried that people will discover your true identity.
Understanding the symbol of alcohol in your dreams depends on the relationship you have with it in daily life. If you drink regularly, you need to look at the other details of your dream more carefully.
However, if you drink rarely or never, then this dream could represent a need for you to escape from your daily stress and your desire to get quick relief.
The alcohol could be suggesting a need for healing and getting in balance. Your unconscious mind may be suggesting outrageous things in hopes that you get the message to “have fun, dream dreams, and get out of your own head!” Please keep in mind that the purpose of dreams is to raise our consciousness and to assist us in having better lives.
The message in the dream about alcohol is most likely not encouraging you to drink but it may represent a need to feel better or get better.
To dream of drinking to intoxication is an inner need to escape reality or your life situation.
Same is true to dream of doing drugs.
This also indicates a feeling of alienation and quite possibly guilt.
Watching someone else get drunk is ussually a negative expression of your inner feeling toward the person or personality trait exibited by the person who is drunk.
To be sober in a crowd of drunks indicates feelings of being left out, or being superior.
