    I've done 40 hours before. That was more than enough. By the end of it staying awake stops being fun and just become very eh.

    Preparing for the zombie apocalypse. I don't want sleep to be the thing that lets me down. How did you do it?
    In all seriousness though, I've been doing some reading about sleep debt and I was wondering if it would be possible to keep staying awake 3 days at a time then getting the necessary sleep after. I mainly want to be able to stay awake that long with little difficulty.

    No, and I could never do it. The longest I've stayed awake was for around 22 hours, and that wasn't nice at all

    Yeah I've read about this. I'm curious to see what that would be like though.

    Want to see if I could do it. Plus experience the effects of sleep deprivation. Plus I've never done it before. Quite a lot of reasons to be honest.

    Don't do it. Trust me, you feel absolutely horrible afterwards. 'Horrible' is an understatement. Not worth it.

    ^ This. It triggered my insomnia too. I've only recently got it in check because of uni but it's just not worth it, OP.
