Since I've been sober, my dreams are far more intense. I often fall asleep quickly and almost immediately have some kind of a wild dream. The reason I know this is because I also wake up after that first dream; fifteen to thirty minutes after sleep first occurs. Then, it's easy to fall back asleep.
By far, the most recurring topic of my dreams is flying. Always has been, since I was a kid. More likely than not, that flying takes place inside of an airplane, a large plane such as a 747 or such. There are times when I am the airplane, sometimes threading my way through neighborhoods, avoiding trees and houses. Occasionally I witness a crash, standing a short distance away. I don't remember ever seeing dead or bloody bodies; the aircraft itself is the object of the dream.
But they seem so real.
How about you? What are your dreams made of?
