This is a common experience in recovery. I've heard it time and time again at 12-step meetings and, you're right, it is scarey. I also agree that the pain pills you're on know are reminding you of the good/bad-old days when you were using. The dreams will straighten out by themselves. Every time you wake up from one of these nightmare-ish dreams, congratulate yourself for continuing not to use for real. I hope this helps. Julie.

: anyone else out there experiencing this also? Could it be due to the fact that I am taking narcotic pain killers for a back problem that I am having surgery for in May?
