  3. I had a dream about alcohol that i feel that none of these are accurately addressing. In my dream basically, since i don’t remember much, i was drinking something, and a lot of it. But not because it was alcohol. In the dream i didn’t know that what i was drinking so much of was alcohol and then i started to to feel unpleasant, rather, i began to suffer actually. After i started to feel different someone told me while i was halfway through my last drink that i was drinking alcohol. I don’t remember who it was but i do remember them being behind me, about an inch and a half behind me, towards my left shoulder. After they told me i stop drinking it and i began to feel drunk in the dream. I was having trouble controlling myself and i felt a lot of pains in my torso, centered mainly in the middle of my chest. Someone please tell me what this means.
