If you’re recovering from an addiction and have been sober for awhile, you may start to experience disturbing dreams. It’s a common occurrence to experience dreams so vivid, you wake up believing you just used drugs. This is usually terrifying if you’ve been struggling with recovery from addiction and you may even experience a sense of guilt when you wake up.
