I actually had a LD before I even knew about the concept. But for my first intentional LD, I spent about a week or two before I had one.

I think I achieved one so fast because I had already experienced lucidity, and I with all my thought wanted to have another one. Being overly anxious really paid off, lol.

It took me a ten days to get my dream recall up to a good level. A few days later I had a LD, but that one was nightmare induced (had that before), so that one doesn't count.

Then I had a really busy period, lasting two weeks. After two more weeks I actually started to do serious techs, and within three days I got my first two (came without using techs though ). That was on new year's day. smile

So that makes six weeks. ^^

It was probably a couple of years for me too. I never did start a dream journal but I had lucid dreaming on the brain and read about it often.

I think my problem is poor dream recall. Who knows, I may have started having them right away but not remembered them, although I doubt it.

I had small close calls along the way. First thing I remember was when I dreamed that I was having a LD. Sounds weird I know, but it was definitely a ND about having a LD. It was freaky.

Then I had occasional short, low level LDs where I was not in control in any way. If I'm lucky, I get one every few months now. So far I've had one where I truly felt like I was "in my dream." It was awesome.

It actually took me 3 days from starting LD training(think it was because I was so hyped about it), now 2 weeks from my first "real" LD and still trying...Kind'a frustrating.

PS. That first LD was more of an appetizer.

An hour at most.

It was crazy, my friend had told me about her OBE experiences and I started reading about it online. Somewhere on the way I read a few things about lucid dreaming too. Then I got tired, decided to take a nap and had my first lucid dream naturally.

That was about half a year ago and I had two LD's since then (only one longer, really lucid one though). All without induction methods. I'm just looking into that now, that's why I joined the forum! smile


Good luck!

After the first day I read about it I had a LD. It only lasted a second, because some sort of evil... err... thingy was coming down the hallway toward the couch I was sitting in, and I thought, "I'm too tired to deal with this, I'm leaving!" and woke up.

It took a month for me to get another one.

A long time ago, I had LDs around twice every week, without thinking. The number gradually decreased until it was zero about three years ago. It took me around a month to have an induced one.
