PeaceJoy, i too have had some using dreams. My dreams were only with a couple of months of sobriety under my belt. They were very vivid and i woke up in a cold sweat. I talked to both my iop counselor and my sponsor and they both said that it was my mind craving a drink. That devil is truly just ouside the door doing pushups, so i need to remember steps 1, 2, and 3 on a daily basis. Now having a few more months of sobriety, and nearing the 1 yr mark, i find that the dreams have not occurred lately. One of the old timers at a meeting said that he still has an occassional dream and he has 20+ years. I thank God today that i am having fewer dreams and pray that yours lessen also. One day at a time!
