View Full Version : Addiction Dreams...

Has anyone had a dream of eating something cooked and felt really bad, physically and emotionally, during the dream? After a 28 day stint, ya know(?), I began having dreams of being really drunk and unable to walk or communicate.
They were HORRIBLE dreams, and I kept trying to tell my friends and family that I had not even drank anything. ALSO I have heard of recovering drug addicts having these dreams of being high. They all say that they are horrible.
I had one in which I ate something like barbeque and some pasta and I had that horrible feeling. It was deeper than a feeling than I probably would if I ate cooked, it felt more like murder. I didn't realize I felt that strongly about it.
Has anyone else experienced this?

YEP, sure have.
I don't anymore, (knock on wood), but I sure did in the first few months of raw.
Mostly it was eating cooked meat, which I haven't eaten any meat in over 10 years, so it was truly disgusting, and I would be soooooooooooo sick, so I imagine it was part of the detox.
Congratulations on your detox, how marvelous to go through it, and not have to DO it. LOL
good work. these dreams will stop, it's only a matter or raw time.

I agree with RP, it is a part of the detox process. In your dream state, you are working on letting go of these attachments and the emotions and physical sensations you have tied into that. Instead of viewing it as horrible, try to view it as a gift! It is much easier to work things out in the dream state than out here on the physical!

Yes, the first few nights of doing 100% raw each time I have dreams of eating cooked food and wake up so frustrated and scared that I screwed up. I have dreams like that when I eat cooked also, but as I stay on 100% I don't dream at all, wake up in my sleep, and sleep strait through the night :)

YES! I have been having these dreams for the last two weeks--I just came off a two week juice fast, but before that I was completely on a SAD diet. So I KNOW these dreams are part of my detox. I've dreamt of eating pizza, ice cream, chocolate cake, etc. and in one dream I was so horrified that I actually tried to make myself throw it up! That's how bad I wanted that stuff out of my body! Each time I wake up, I am intensely relieved that it was *just* a dream.
LOL, I just had one of those dreams last night! Maybe it was the power of suggestion, or maybe it was because I sniffed my son's piece of pizza last night.
It was too funny, I don't even remember what I ate, but I had decided I would just lie about it, not fess up, and not even change my sig line!
I'd like to think I've got better character and more integrity in my waking hours :p
