(Psychological / emotional perspective)
When the normal constraints we put on ourselves in waking life are removed, we can often reach our own truth.
Alcohol as a symbol of the removal of restraint enables us to accept dream ideas we might otherwise reject.
There is the recognition of the potential for emotional confusion out of which can come clarity.
To dream of an alcoholic suggests that we need to look at the way we handle excess and obsession in our daily lives.
