Don’t Be a Hero


Dream 199: Might as Well Face It You’re Addicted to Love

Heroine on Heroin

A 24-year-old male dreamt that he was giving his brother shots of heroin in the leg to prevent his brother from having extreme withdrawal symptoms.

Dream 198 Interpretation

I aked him whether he was having trouble with a girlfriend. He indicated that he recently broke up with a woman who was having addiction to drug problems. The fact that the way many people pronounce heroin as “heroine” was a major clue. You are entering the world of fantastic ideation in dreams where clang associations and extreme concreteness paradoxically exist in the same space as spiritual desires.

I asked him what his brother’s personality was like. His brother was the embodiment of the heroic masculine archetype, always helping and protecting those he loved. The dreamer’s desire was to save the beautiful now ex-girlfriend. The dream, like most dreams, is perfect in the sense that while the girlfriend was addicted to drugs, the dreamer was addicted to the girlfriend.

He literally went through withdrawal breaking up with the girlfriend as he was focused on saving her. It is notable that the sound of the word heroin (heroine) clued this dream interpreter in to the idea that the heroic masculine was probably involved. In the dream he is literally trying to spare his own heroic masculine from experiencing withdrawal symptoms from the dreamer’s addiction to the drug addicted girlfriend. Legs in a dream involve the issue of support as legs support us physically. The dream was urging him to withdraw his support from the substance plagued girlfriend.
