    So, if you haven’t seen the movie Inception, and aren’t aware of the premise, it is essentially about a dream within a dream, within a dream etc.

    I am about three weeks away from my 4 year anniversary (or soberversary, as I like to call it) from not drinking alcohol.

    This is great and all - but even 4 years later, I’m not able to shake these reoccurring dreams I have. Occasionally I have had dreams where I forget I don’t drink, and I drink. But more frequently I have different dreams about those dreams. While I am dreaming, I will tell someone that I don’t drink and then remember those times I accidentally drank (in my other dreams) which causes me to be filled with anxiety and guilt.

    Anyways, even if you have never experienced these dream inceptions, have you ever had a dream about using that felt so realistic that you questioned whether or not it actually happened?

    I hope that in time those dreams will go away, @lonewolves. They don't sound like much fun.
