Since I turned 25, I get drunk super easily now and get massive hangovers even from just a few drinks. Furthermore, I get these awful nightmares or just super insane dreams. A few notable dreams I've had included: getting captured by Russians, another one in which all of my friends suddenly hated my guts and wanted to kill me, and a nightmare about getting hit by a hurricane and seeing death/destruction everywhere, despite living in a very non-hurricane prone area.
What the hell is going on? Does this happen to anyone else, or does alcohol just mess with my psyche? Now when I drink I try to sober up before passing out lol

It's not the booze. Alcoholics frequently report not dreaming. The consensus is that alcohol prevents you from staying in the stages of sleep most prone to dreaming.
Also, hangovers are easy to prevent. Best method: quit drinking. Second best: pay attention to how many drinks you have (1 oz hard liquor, 5 oz wine or mead, 12 oz beer). At bedtime, drink 1 oz of water for every drink you had, more is better if you can take it. Take a multivitamin and naproxen, or ibuprofen if you don't have naproxen.

Nope, I don’t think I have weird dreams at all. I just pass out and wake up and forget everything that happened.
Once woke up with $200+ missing from my card. Now I just take cash lol.
