    Okay, better question: Who else even knows what lucid dreaming is?

    I was the same, except my drunk neighbour in halls always wakes me up at 3am these days... honestly grateful, he's got me back into lucid dreaming. Its like doing drugs (I assume), but better (I assume).

    You'd be surprised how much of your dreams you could start remembering if you recorded a bit every morning. You'd remember a little more every few days.

    After years, I wonder if I even do dream, what I had before was mostly nightmares seemingly.

    If you struggle with nightmares, lucid dreaming could probably help.

    Then again, sleep paralysis isn't that fun either

    Every time I get lucid, I get so excited that I wake up. Longest I've stayed lucid for has been maybe a couple of minutes.

    But I've had pretty awesome non-lucid dreams as side-effects. I have the best dreams. Nobody builds better dreams than I do.

    Yeah, lucid dreaming is boss. I feel for people who don't/can't, you're missing out. It's like creating a videogame, enabling all of the cheats, then doing your thing.

    That being said, I've found that my lucid dreams tend to happen during the middle of a standard dream. For example, I'll be dreaming of being in a house, doing something completely arbitrary. Standard dream stuff will happen, and then I'll suddenly realise that I'm there. And after that point I'll be lucid.

    Dream induced lucid dream. That's the most common amongst beginners.

    AFAIK, it works by noticing something in your dream that you realise would not happen in real life. But its obviously not foolproof; I still have dreams involving my dead mother, and that should be the biggest tip-off that I'm dreaming. But my semi-conscious dream mind is rather stupid.

    Have you tried any specific methods to lucid dream?

    I've done that a few times. I guess that's a semi-lucid dream? Really annoying. Hey, there are big floating pillars of rock that I'm jumping between on some weird quest. Cool, I must be dreaming! Hey, lets finish this arbitrary quest (bonus points for making it as dull as possible - e.g. pick blueberries) for no reason, when we could instead be doing really cool stuff.

    hahaha yeah exactly and then i always feel so mad at myself when i wake up
    i think that happens more whenever i don't actually try to lucid dream and it just happens
    because then i have nothing i specifically wanted to do and it's unlikely i'd come up with something right then

    Not really. It either happens or it doesn't, and at this point I'm more concerned about getting a full nights sleep than I am about the quality of my dreams :lol:

    It seems to come relatively naturally to me anyway: out of three nights, I'll remember actively dreaming during two of those nights, and I'll be lucid about... maybe 20% of my dreams? So on average I go lucid once every 4-8 days (if my maths is correct, which it probably isn't), which isn't bad going.

    Every night
    Sometimes they get - weird...
    Sometimes they can be helpful: ie: I will dream about potential scenarios for the following day and therefore can make more informed decisions about what to do in them? :erm:
    My old Psychology teacher said something about the dreams you remember having now actually happened 2 weeks ago. I don't know how much of this is true but I have never forgotten this.
    Interesting :beard:

    I only ever remember having one once. As soon as I realized I was dreaming, I got too excited and woke up!

    I've always wanted to Lucid dream but it doesn't seem like a simple task and almost takes lots of research to achieve it. The thought of going into sleep paralysis is a bit scary and kind of puts me off it though!
