I get stuck on a helicopter during an attack, hanging from a chain ladder a few feet off the ground - A Viet Cong soldier in black pajamas is charging at me – and the chopper does not move - I am left hanging there - I have been abandoned. closer - I am in a rage because the guys in the chopper don't care about my welfare.
This dream is about the fear of letting go of an addiction and giving up a certain level of comfort versus facing the reality of who you really are and accepting it. Essentially, you are trading a false life for a real life. However, there is a tremendous amount of fear when letting go of the security provided by the addiction and a fear of having to face the reality of who you are and the hard work to actually put a real life together. A fear of failure and there can also be a fear of success.
