    This doesn't happen to swim but he always seems to get either scary dreams or lucid dreams when he is on xanax. When he is drunk he cant seem to remember his dreams or when he went to sleep. He just wakes up and drinks another beer ;) (just kidding)

    I get lucid dreams every time i go to sleep drunk. But i only remember them for a few seconds upon waking, then i cant for the life of me remember what it was i was dreaming about.

    You always dream, whether or not you remember is a different story.

    You cant recall memories from when you were drunk when your sober, because when you coded and stored the memory you were in a different state of mind than when recalling it which makes it almost impossible. (State dependent learning)

    I got really drunk once, I dont remember it, but my freinds said I got hornier than a cat in heat, and in my sleep I was moaning and saying things like "can she join" and the like..

    Hmm, I never, ever have dreams when drunk. Or rather, I never remember them, because we all dream constantly.

    you probably dont remember them because you are deep asleep.......you can remember them only when you are less deep asleep

    Lol

    Swim can't tell for the life of him if he really pissed against the neighbour's door and on his door knob, or if it was a dream.

    Swim must have been very very drunk if he did it. However, even if I did it, the guy deserved it for playing UK hard house at 5 am. It was shaking the glass on swim's table.

    Ahh student life...

    SWIM never dreams when he is drunk, he is usually just knocked-out till dawn ..
    But when SWIM smokes he gets extremely real dreams.
    Two days ago, I smoked 4-5 J's and went to bed much earlier because damn stoned.
    The next thing he remembers was waking up, in his living room.
    It was very sunny, just as the last couple of days has been and a girl SWIM fancies was standing next to him, with her arm around SWIM.
    He was introducing himself to his girlfriends' mom, and SWIM and his girlfriend where smiling, kissing, happy and had the best moment of their life.
    SWIM can't remember much more, except some nice moments with the nice girl.
    SWIM can definately say that was his best dream ever, and a dream that SWIM definately wants to come true(no pun intended)

    Vivid waking-dreams from prolonged alcohol (over)consumption

    I went a little overboard this Christmas season. He has been out drinking everyday for 10 days.

    For the past 3-4 days he has woken up with a hangover and after a couple of hours of being awake drifts off back to sleep. He then has the most realistic dreams he ever experienced which he has trouble distinguishing from reality.
    For instance, the other day I was sure he had had an hour long phone conversation with a friend. This turned out to have never happened.

    I am interested to hear if any other my have experienced anything like this or if anybody can explain how alcohol can cause this?

    BTW, I am not recommending this method to anybody interested in vivid or lucid dreams, it was far from enjoyable in my experience and SWIM imagines he has done his liver and kidneys some damage this past week.

    Re: Vivid waking-dreams from prolonged alcohol (over)consumption

    I have been taking sleeping pills for over 3 years and doesn't usually remember her dreams, but the last 6 weeks since coming off meth her sleeping pill intake has risen dramaticallty. SWIM wakes up in the morning still feeling heavily sedated from the pills, takes her a couple of hours to wake up properly and then she gets tired again and goes back to sleep for a few hours. During these few hours I have very vivid dreams and also sleep paralysis. Sometimes she thinks she hears someone at the door or something but she can't move. This is likely a side effect of taking too many sleeping pills. I don't drink alcohol so she can't compare it, but it seems that her dreams are always more pronounced when she is taking a nap during the day.

    Re: Vivid waking-dreams from prolonged alcohol (over)consumption

    SWIM's been pretty heavy on the sauce himself this Xmas. The lack of cannabis doesn't help mind. Yes, he can relate to these ultra-realistic dreams. They tend to hit SWIM at the exact same time as well - that drifting in-and-out of sleep period after waking up in bed with a hangover. No clue as to what exactly causes this. A sign of damage perhaps?
