My husband is slcoholic and his dreaming bad dreams?

Alcohol and dreams

Alcoholism
Alcohol can induce disturbing nightmares, even in those who aren't alcoholics. If your husband is an alcoholic, he is exacerbating his own symptoms. If he's interested in improving this situation, stopping or significantly limiting alcohol would likely help -- but alcohol withdrawal can lead to disturbing dreams and visions also.

What creates these bad dreams?

Nightmares

Open-uri20120701-10611-1taa22h
When we dream, our unconscious is playing out our conflicts, fears, anxieties, and desires. Some feel that all the characters are parts of us, perhaps disowned aspects that make us uncomfortable in waking life. Dreams are also a relatively safe way to express strong emotion. Consulting with a psychiatrist or therapist may help you better understand yourself and the triggers for these nightmares

Bad dreams and flashbacks are usually signs of post-traumatic stress disorder. They are indications not of future events but of some unresolved emotional trauma not yet worked through. Seeking psychological treatment will help you sort out what the meanings of these flashbacks and bad dreams are.

Is there a condition in which alcohol gives you bad dreams?

Drinking it!

Drinking alcohol can trigger nightmares. Alcohol is associated with more intense dreaming as well as better recall of dreams. Also when coming off alcohol individuals can have disrupted sleep and dream more as well.

How come i used to have more serious bad dreams when i was 5?

Normal

Head-brain
Many people have more frightening dreams as young children than they do as they grow up. Maybe what happens is that our brains are gradually better able to understand what is happening around us... What is really frightening and what is not.

How do you stop bad dreams from happening?

Eval & treament

Open-uri20120717-28185-1byyxwq
"Bad dreams" can come from many sources, and talking with your doctor can help sort through them. Medications such as antidepressants can make dreaming more vivid -- and concerns you actually have inside can be pictured in scary ways. Also, recreational drugs and withdrawal from alcohol can induce them. Another cause is reliving traumatic experiences in sleep. Treatment and hope are possible.
