Example dream : A poisonous smoke was symbolic of the dreamers thoughts about the recent bank crisis. The smoke reminded the dreamer of the smoke cloud after the 9-11 attacks which was full of cancerous substances. This probably caused more deaths than the 9-11 attacks. The dreamer was using this as a symbol for the bank crisis. A woman he had talked to was speaking as if the bank crisis was over. But for the dreamer this was just the start. So a poisonous cloud was a symbol for the fundamental and deep rooted problems which were crippling in the world economy.
Example dream : Poison in a dream was linked to the dreamers well meaning sister - she liked to welcome people by giving them as much food as possible. But to the dreamer this was harmful as she suffered from diabetes. Much of this food was harmful (poisonous) to her.
Example dream : Poison symbolised his mothers tendency to totally infuriate him. Their relationship was poisoned. The dreamer was easily able to understand the symbolic meaning of "poisoned" by thinking how he might use the phrase "poisoned relationship" to describe his feelings.

Example dream : A dream of poison gas linked to the dreamer writing an history article on the German attack of his home town of Scarborough during 1914. The article seemed linked to the things that he wished to emphasise in this article. Poison gas seems linked to the paranoia after this attack and maybe captures this thought "I would like to emphasise how people became paranoid and were speculating about all sorts of things."
Example dream : A poisonous bomb was linked to some very negative comments made to the dreamer. The dreamer had allowed such negativity to get to her.
