In previous societies it was an accepted part of life that, at certain times, drunkenness was allowed as a way of celebration or as a release of tension - hence the term a 'Bacchanalian revel'. Being drunk indicates the need to reconnect with a part of ourselves that can tolerate inappropriate behaviour. Ecstasy or extreme joy is reputedly achieved after inhibitions have been removed through getting drunk. To be drunk in a dream means that we are abandoning ourselves to irrational forces. We want to be free from responsibility and from having inhibitions. To make someone else drunk is to be forcing our irresponsibility on to someone else.
