Drug Using Dreams During Recovery Linked to More Severe Addiction

As i suspected; an excerpt or two:

Quote
Vivid dreams involving drinking and drug use are common among individuals in recovery. A study from the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Recovery Research Institute, published in the January issue of the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment after online release in October 2018, finds these relapse dreams are more common in those with more severe clinical histories of alcohol and other drug problems.

Not sure about this, i don't remember taking many drugs (one or two maybe) in a dream, only that they have a symbolic fuzzy highly significant component in my own dreams. People present may also have a similiar interwoven significance.

Quote
Recovery from every kind of substance use disorder – alcohol, heroin, cocaine, cannabis – has been characterized by dreams that follow a common pattern: in the dream the person has a drink or ingests their primary substance. They experience disbelief and are overcome with fear, guilt and remorse until they wake up, relieved to realize it was only a dream.
