I dreamed that we were visiting my in-laws for Christmas. They had a buffet lined up with things to eat that everyone had brought. There were a lot of people there so there was lots to choose from. I had picked out a bunch of veggies like cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, and an artichoke. Then I found what I was sure was "roast beef" sandwiches made with some type of meat substitute. I had taken a couple of bites when I realized it was really meat. I immediately had to run to the bathroom and I was sick. It wasn't entirely that I felt guilty, but my body actually rejected it. When I returned, I laid down on a couch as I still wasn't feeling well. Then everyone started thinking it was the funniest thing and saying things like "you must have really subconsciously wanted to eat it" and other mean things. I was so happy to wake up and realize it had only been a dream. Yuck, huh? Is this just me or do you all have weird dreams like this too?

Wow, what a dream! I haven't had a meat-eating dream after going vegetarian (been veg for 1 year this November!), but I have had a dream that I was drinking milk, after going vegan. I thought it was pretty odd, because I never used to drink milk before, anyway. In my dream, I remember thinking it was soy milk and after I realized it wasn't, I spat out the milk and said, "I'm a vegan, why the heck do I have a glass of milk?"<br><br><br><br>
Isn't it awesome how we are veg*ns in our dreams? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I once dreamed that my sister (a pescetarian) and I ate KFC chicken. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

Its called a "meatmare", lol. A lot of vegetarians have them soon after they switch. Its just a sign that you are very conscious of what you are doing, and that its important enough to you to dream about it! Congrats on your meatmare, may they go away soon!! They eventually do ;-)

I had a dream the other night that my mom asked me to hold her "ribwich" (which honestly looked like one of those dinosaur 'ribs' from the Flinstones between two pieces of crusty white bread) for a couple of minutes. I can kind of vaguely remember first being discusted, then thinking "Why not?" and taking a bite. It just tasted like barbeque sauce... but I remember thinking "OH NO!" and not wanting my mom to find out... Then I woke up feeling sick >_<

Yep, I used to have meatmares all the time. Sometimes I realize that I "can" eat meat after all and do so. Other times I eat something I think is vegetarian and then realize it isn't. I got them very frequently after making the switch, but I haven't had one in about a year now.<br><br><br><br>
The last one I had was I was out at a party and someone slipped me a "roofie" (date-rape drug). In the dream, I woke up the next morning and started phoning friends, crying and hysterical, because I was positive I'd eaten a hamburger during my blackout.<br><br><br><br>
My friend who quit smoking said he used to get "smokemares" for months afterward, but they gradually ended.

I once dreamed that I completely forgot that I was vegan. I was eating chicken, and my family were looking at me with evil-looking smirks on their faces. I said, "What?" Then I realized that I was vegan and loudly gasped. I woke up right after that and was glad it was only a dream.

Eventually go away? Ha. Been vegetarian for over a decade and I still have a meatmare once in a blue moon.<br><br><br><br>
But then again, I always have lots of weird recurring nightmares <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/worried.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":worried:">

I've had a few meatmares. They sure make for good threads!

Wow, I didn't realize this was so common!<br><br>
I had one last week where I was in a BBQ drumstick eating contest. I was eating as fast as I could and I kept looking over my sholder because I thought someone who knew I was veg would catch me wolfing down BBQ chicken....

I had a dream where people were trying to force me to eat chicken nuggets. Ick. I was pretty convinced they had for a while too, as my dreams are quite realistic! I was quite upset with them!

It's good to know that others experience this too.<br><br><br><br>
I've had a couple. The two that I remember the most are these, though.<br><br><br><br>
After going vegetarian, I dreamed I was eating chicken. That was the whole dream, I was just eating chicken, but I did freak out after I ate it.<br><br><br><br>
After going vegan, I dreamed about an ice cream fair. I went with my friend and she was getting all sorts of ice creams, but I was strong and didn't get any. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> There was something about llama milk ice cream, too.

I had a horrible meatmare today.......my first one ever....<br><br><br><br>
I dreamt my family all got together and in the center of the room was a narrow glass case with a large pig and about 8-10 baby piglets. In it, my cousin's wife was attempting to grab a piglet with a toothpick and eat it alive. The mother pig kept making sounds furiously and stopped her from doing the deed. Then, they take the mother pig and turn her upside down so she can't move, and they stab one of the piglets and my cousin's wife eats it. All the time, I'm saying how terrible it is and appealing to everyone to not eat the pigs and let them free to no avail.....<br><br><br><br>
It was horrible <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I used to have these dreams where I'd get served up things like soups with like animal legs poking out of the top. It was like those freaky neopets' foods.

I used to get these all the time for the first year or so, then they gradually went away. I always dreamed that I somehow forgot I wasn't supposed to eat meat.

I had a meatmare a few days ago where I was FISHING. At least I threw the fish back, but still - ICK. I don't remember the last time I had a meatmare.
