Rum is often considered a party drink so it’s synonymous with fun, happiness and good times. It’s also telling of your social life- you may enjoy spending time with friends and family and feel happy with your current level of interaction with others.
Perhaps you yearn for better times if your social life is non-existent or maybe you are looking forward to a time in the near future when you will be letting your hair down and having some rest such as a holiday or time off.
How much you drank is also significant- if you drank too much, it's possible you’re losing control over something in your waking life or being irresponsible with your choices. If you drank, but still felt in control then it’s possible you have a healthy attitude to work and play and one never has a detrimental effect on the other.
If you were drinking rum by yourself, then perhaps you feel lonely right now and you need to make an effort with your social life. Consider what you might need to do in order to invite more people into your life.
Rum is also associated with pirates so you may be taking what you want right now without any consideration for others. Or perhaps you are betraying someone close to you and it will cause your parting of ways.
It could be your subconscious telling you to consider your morals and if they need to change.
Alcohol can also be viewed as a sign of boredom. Perhaps your current way of life is making you bored and you need to think of new ways to make it more engaging.
One final thought process is that rum can be an indicator of money. You may be spending your hard earned cash on useless and frivolous things and so it may be time to reign in your outgoings and assess your finances.
