Dream intensity

So ever since I moved here and stopped being a career stoner and all that, I've been having intense dreams. Often times theyre so mundane that I confuse them with reality. Like I literally dont know which memories have happened and which havent. It's starting to fuck with me.

i get the same thing when i stop or cutback. i think its probably got something to do with your memory coming back to its sharp sober self. this would be the optimal time for you to get into lucid dreaming, just try and notice what "tips you off" that you are dreaming, and youll eventually be able to tell more often, then you can control your dreams

Yeah i've had those ones before. Dreams that are just plain stuff that'd happen in real life.. but hey at least you're remembering your dreams. That's like getting an extra 30% of your life.

I think we dream just as much when we smoke, but dream recall is hampered by the short term memory effects of the weed.

That being said, I have experienced what you're talking about Geeno, especially when I was a little kid. I didn't know where reality ended and my dreams began, sometimes. I can remember getting into this argument with my mom when I was like 5 because I totally remembered her saying that I could go to a friend's house, and she swore she didn't.

I don't have the problem so much as an adult, but I think my wife does, actually. She regularly swears she's told me stuff and I have no memory of it whatsoever, and usually I remember most everything that people tell me, including exactly how they worded it. It may also be a way for her to fuck with me, tho, too, I'm not sure. Like the toilet seat thing; just an excuse to ping on us. I swear women do this to see how bad we still want to fuck them. Like, how much will we put up with before we say, "The pussy ain't worth it no mo'".

But I digress.

I expect this problem for you will be short lived. If it's coincidental with you quitting weed, and you smoked alot for a long time before, your mind is going to have to readjust how it processes experiences, especially those which are not usually critically examined, like dreams.

Good call rev. The 9 or so years of non stop smoking probably arent all resolved within a year of quitting.

geeno the same thing has been happening to me for a while. probably a combination of prescription and recreational drugs. sometimes its not very much fun but usually the dreams are delightful.

very often I will be in a dream within a dream, within a dream

also lots of common themes

edit- it's gotten to the point to where i knew i was dreaming and wanted to jump to get out of the dream but i couldn't jump off whatever it was because i was convinced it was all too real

you should try keeping a dream journal, when you have a dream, write it down.

it sounds gay, but it's actually interesting. you can come back to your journal entries a year later and remember them like they were the night before.

it's not only fun to remember old dreams in their entirety but it also helps you remember more dreams in the future.

Ive never seen any proof but heard many times how marijuana effects the ability to recall your dreams.

I start dreaming like crazy and being able to kinda remember them every time i stop smoking weed for more then a day.


ALSO it is weird you make this thread now, becuase since my last semester ended all ive been doing is sleeping really, and it has really changed my reality a bit. Some days i feel as though i have two lives or shit like that.

Honestly who is to say which is real and which isn't? The dream or your waking life. You brain just created both of these universes anyway.

Embrace your changing universe i say. Dream away.
