    24? I did 44 once, for a 10kword assignment.
    Yea well I've done longer than 24 hrs just at the time of the thread creation that weren't the case. Not tryna go for a world record here. 10k isn't a lot if you outline, it'll only seem like a lot if you've no idea where to start.

    Yep, when I was on night shifts. No time to sleep when one finished, because I had a hospital appointment in another city.

    Ikr that's when my insomnia started. It became a nocturnal lifestyle because I had late classes, and all night revising. Untold times I was in the library til dawn -___- I went from starving to binge eating as well because of the schedule and budgeting lol

    how'd you get back into a normal sleeping routine?
    Oh, this happened last year, before my exams... Yeah, I'm still in school, but the pressure kept me awake. I'd sleep for maybe 30 mins at a stretch then wake up in the middle of the night, only to fall asleep after another 30 mins... Was terrible :cry2:

    Well you seem to have a good sched now waking up at 7am. To answer your other question about how much I sleep:

    my pills have melatonin in it which are sleep chemicals in the brain that insomniacs are short of. So if I take the proper dose, it transmits those chemicals and I fall into a deep ass coma like sleep lol and for however long as my body needs it. On avg it's like a good 5 hr sleep after I shut down from the dose but sometimes it works so good that it's only 3 hrs. And I'd just be up in the middle of the night like wide ****ing awake. So I occasionally gotta overdose just to make up for lost time though.

    :toofunny: Wow, you've got to be careful when you deal with this jazz, I never knew! I thought it was like a standard dosage which gives you standard results... I've got another question: If you took your dose last night, how come you couldn't sleep? Are there times when your meds fail to have the necessary effect on you?

    I do sleep but I made the thread when I tried to stay awake for 24 hrs so I could take the pill at night, instead of waking up at night :lol: since we last spoke though I didn't sleep but that's because I didn't take the pill yet lol I think that's why some ppl get addicted to this **** because it knocks em out quick and keeps em up since they're no longer tired so...there's strong pros and cons to it. I like taking them it's just all about when.

    Thanks, now I'm super-interested in melatonin pills How long have you stayed awake without the pill, and approx. how long does it take to fall asleep after a regular dose.
    P.S. I almost typed melanin :rofl: :rofl:

    Okay, yeah I know... the thread title says 24 hhours, but I was wondering whether you could stay up longer... Okay, cool. Yeah, I've heard of a LOOOOOT of people who overdosed on sleeping tabs big time, some who didn't even wake up the next morning.

    -___- Well yea I was hesitant to take them because of that so I am slowly learning how to properly dose. Because I'd be all refreshed at midnight like that's not normal lol. Anyway yea I've been in a zombie like state for almost a week, but not recently since I take pills. I don't think I can live without them honestly, I'd never sleep
