Hello,

 

This is a intense thought I've needed to discuss for awhile.

 

When I sleep under the influence of alcohol. An entirely new world opens up with the mind. I'm able to control time and space around me. I can speak, think and do things. I can travel to different places by flying way a lot more intensely. I believe under the influence brings out some sort of experimental life for the brain. You can do basically anything. I've traveled to dimensions, space regions, worlds, talked to many people and seen dark and horrible things. I believe the mind is more susceptible to being highly intoxicated and rem sleep. I feel its a strong combination for some minds that causes you to have more paranormal and even prophetical dreams. Thanks for the time.

 

Drink responsibly..!

When I Get Really Drunk Right Before Bed I Usually Wake Up Wondering Why I Am Mostly Naked, Except For One Sho And Sleeping Under A Bush.  Just Kidding, When I Drink Heavily I Don't Remember My Dreams.

Well pour me a drink friend. LOL

 

I have exactly opposite the experiences you describe.

If I have pretty much any amount of alcohol (no matter how much/ how little) - I can kiss dreaming goodbye.

I rarely remember my dreams as it is.          

And then there is the whole "waking up under a rock" feeling. It seems to take forever to get going on all cylinders the next day after drinking.

I also find that I do not remember my dreams when I have been drinking.   

 

I am willing to try again and see what happens though, in the of science of course.

LOL. Thanks Doc, looks like I have had enough allready.

 

Thank you for translating for me, I’m not sure what happened there, but I lost my 'name'.   I think I will have to fire my editor, unless he buys me another drink.

 

Peace and friendship

Juthro

So far, with the exception of medical anesthesia, nothing I do will completely stop me from dreaming while asleep. I have found medical MJ, and high doses of muscle relaxants in combo with pain killers will reduce my REM periods, but not stop me from dreaming or being able to recall at least one or two.

 

What you are describing Rusty, sounds very similar to a more lucid dream state. It may be that for you, the alcohol inhibits the natural sleep cycle/ dream state, enough to allow you to more easily stay in a semi- conscious phase where lucid dreaming is more easily achieved. Do you have any control in these dreams? Do you feel aware that you are dreaming? Or are the dreams an intense, movie like experience where you feel like an observer along for the ride?

 

If you can do this when you drink, you can also learn to improve your control when you sleep naturally.

Pretty much sums it up for me.

i've always had a profound dream life. it's the basis of almost all my interests, and all my artwork. I, like the original poster after drinking, have incredible vivid, and often lucid dreams. I admit to having a drinking issue, but this stems from not only external issues, but the fact that it always enhances my dream states.This is only true however of certain kinds of drink. certain, more synthetic drinks ( like smirnoff ice thats all water sugar and crap alcohol).. i get very little, but hops, ciders, etc.. much more active dreams. i have always felt that alcohol is unfortunately entheogenic for some people. Often times when in a period of not drinking, i will have profound dreams, ones that are more real than reality, and often rather nightmarish.My main reason for commenting is a warning to the original poster. use caution, as it DOES have the ability to magnify, make lucid, occasionaly precognitive dreams, it is also a serpent, and will wrap around you and bite. its one of the ugliest addictions out there, and having the benifit of powerful dreams under it's influence makes it all the more insidious and tempting.

I very rarely dream anymore, but then, I haven't had a good nights sleep in years! Alcohol makes me sleep so deep when I'm under the influence, that when I wake up, it's like I've crawled out of a deep black hole. It's not a healthy sleep at all. Plus, I have sleep apnea, which is kind of dangerous when I get blotto.  My doctor told me, that any amount of alcohol will cause insomnia. And he was right in my case. So I abstain. I do manage to get a little more sleep without drinking. Now if I don't smoke any weed for a week, or so, and I get high..... Then I'll have these crazy lucid dreams you speak about. Cannabis is supposed to keep you out of REM, I understand. So I don't know how that works. I had a girlfriend who got her card because she had night terrors. Never heard of that. She claimed it worked.

When I was in my early 20's I would have some of the most vivid dreams after drinking pretty heavily to get a really nice buzz, then laying down for a nap. Now I don't tend to have dreams that I can remember at all if I've been drinking before I go to bed.

 

I prefer to drink less often these days, and when I do I also prefer not to drink shortly before I'm planning to go to sleep. I like to have several hours to let the alcohol wear off before I go to sleep, preferably earlier in the day if I'm going to drink.

 

I tend to have more vivid dreams when I don't drink before going to bed. I just haven't been recording any of them when I wake up. I really need to put a new battery into my digital audio recorder and keep it next to my bed to start logging this stuff again.

I remember alcohol having an effect on my dreams when my mind was a bit edgy from high-dose trips. Still does, but not in the same way...

I don't remember alcohol dreams. I fell asleep on mushrooms and found myself being looked over by a giant yellow octopus inside some black space. The intensity of that thing was unnerving. Someone told me its the Cthulu from the Necronomicon. I didn't stick around to find out what it wanted. I'm glad. Apparently the Cthulu likes to munch your butthole hahaha!

Oh hey actually. The only time I've been able to confidently leave my body was after a glass of red wine. I made it halfway down the block before being disturbed by someone in my house making noise and it immediately pulled my consciousness back into my body. Hey man. Maybe alcohol allows your energy body to relax its anchoring within the body. Loosen its grip. Help you relax. Some very old meaning for alcohol literally translates to spirit eater. Spooooky. I think that's because they found out a long time ago that getting too drunk can open the crown chakra which leaves people vulnerable to spirit possession/ psychic parasites.
