How long did it take you?
PostPosted: Fri 07 Mar, 2008  Reply with quote

Hey guys,

Im about 5 minutes new here and i got interested in lucid dreams at around 10 or 11 o'clock this morning. I have no idea where my desire to get lucid dreams comes from except i think it may be related to a flashback i may have had. When i was young, i got lucid dreams a few times. I remember how much fun it was controlling the universe and now i want to do it again. I know that learning to have lucid dreams on command takes a long time, but how long did it take you? (Choose an option)

1) About a week
2) Between a week and 2 weeks
3) Between 2 weeks and 3 weeks
4) Between 3 weeks and a month
5) More than a month
6) More than 2 months
7) Other... (please specify)


P.S: Why is there no "add poll" option? This has become a standard in modern websites.

<mod>Added a poll, the last poll of this type is in the archives Heredragon</mod>

After seven months of trying, I finally got to the point where I was like "Oh, I'm dreaming!" Then, BAM! I wake up.
Then, two months later, (nine months or so from the day I started), I had a lucid dream that lasted longer than 10 seconds.

And if you want to make that into a poll, you can just ask a Mod to do it for you.

To be really precise:
Started Lucid Dream research on August 23rd 2006
First documented LD: 29th August 2007

So in my case just above a year.

It took me 7 days (voted for 1-2 weeks in the poll) to have a LD when I started the Infinity program/plan. I had lucid dreams before that, though I wasn't that much into it, so they were just natural I guess, not intentional.


P.S. I never finished the whole Infinity course. ):

It took me just 15 days to have my first LD.

Began research from here and other sites like the wikibook on the first of October and had my first one on the 15th.

I once had a lucid dream 7 or 8 years ago. Now I began the to find out about lucid dreams Feb 29 and by yesterday (Mar 6) I had my first lucid dream, but that was because of intense auto-affirmation, not auto-sugestion, reality checks about every 5 minutes and trying to use like 5 dream induction methods the same day.


Current LD goal(s): achieving a steady sleep schedule, then getting proper dream recall

I joined in July last year, and had my first LD on October 6th, so, about 3 months. It was my most vivid and longest-lasting LD to date.


Current LD goal(s): *formerly known as hunaynay

I constantly neglected to write down my dreams usually from laziness of getting up, and usually forgot them by the time I could be bothered... So it took me about 5 months? I need to check my DJ for exact xD But I'd only recorded down like 12 dreams from all that time...I am bad v.v; MUST TRY HARDER NOW~!

I found one of my DJs that dated back to January 2007 and ended around May 2007. My last full LD was last fall and I have not had one since. I'm still trying.

Less than a week... actually, the first night.

Unfortunately, I'm suffering from an endless dry spell.

Less than a week when i first tried. Nowadays it's harder for me. Maybe because in the beginning the motivation is bigger to really want it!
So i'm now searching for ways that will help me getting it easier.
