Sometimes his dreams are scary Sometimes his dreams are sad but mostly they just make him mad He wakes up alone feeling guilty and mad The smart thing would be to pay no heed to them But it becomes hard to keep control on the conscious mind when such thoughts make advances on his subconscious mind Surely the smart thing would be continuing streak otherwise all this would be for nothing As they say in his CA meetings Keep it simple, stupid He finds his vein from the first try and shoots just like in his dreams 'Hell yeah', he breathes He's not so 'stupid' after all
It is common for those in recovery to have occasional relapse dream. During sleep they once again experience what it is like to be using alcohol or drugs. In the dream they may be enjoying the experience or it may have all the qualities of a nightmare. Many people in recovery will wake up from this type of dream with feelings of guilt, as if they choose to have such an experience. They may even view it as an omen that they are about to relapse in reality.
