    • It is common for recovering addicts to have drug dreams. Why? “The subconscious mind, even in recovering addicts who are doing extremely well in the recovery process, often still craves the substance the person was addicted to. For example, the conscious mind of a recovering alcoholic knows that having just one sip of alcohol is a bad idea, and is aware of the negative consequences that would follow. The subconscious mind, however, may still be fixated on the addiction. When the individual falls asleep, it is the subconscious mind that brings forth vivid images of alcohol consumption and over-indulging.”

    • Understand your feelings, Talk to someone you trust, Look for triggers, and Create a relapse and prevention plan. Daily excercise will increase the quality of sleep and so does relaxation before sleep.
