No it is certainly not dangerous. All that happens is that, in certain circumstances, dreams happen while one is actually awake - just before falling asleep or just after waking. It is as if one is awake, but, at the same time, a movie is running. Generally alcohol does not affect it, but in some cases it may bring it on. However, if it is happening during the day,and not just before or just after sleep, then it should be looked in to.
