Most of my LD's are just some minutes, but some have been several hours long yes

But its not the length that matters, its the Quality 8P

My longest one was also my most recent one, and it felt like about half an hour, maybe a little more, it's a little hard to say with dreams. That was the dream where I didn't do much other than just explore my surroundings, with minimum manipulation, and I still had to work hard to keep the world stable.

My earlier lucid dreams have been just a few minutes long. It takes practice.

The can last anytime really, in dream time of course the only thing that defines the time is your body clock and what you see. In a dream these are both simulated so it can last a second or a day or a week or a month or a year or even a lifetime.

Yeah - you're right wink5 My last LD was very long. About half day... but, unfortunately I thought I couldn't wake up (silly, huh ? ^^) and I made myself to wake up - I can tell, I could have enjoyed another half of the LD tounge1

But LD's can vary between seconds and months (or even years) - it requires experience and a lot of practice. The mind cuts of very many parts of the dream to make it feel like days, when in fact you enjoy only 2 hours or so of your REM.

So, time in dreams is completely different... sometimes wink5

I rarely think about how much time passes me by as I dream. Mostly my dreams are several scenarios or stories stringed together to form one entire dream sequence, so it never feels like I spend more than a maximum of a few days in a drem scenario. It's not until afterward when I tell my friends about it and they go, "Wow, what a long dream you had..." that I realize that it was pretty long and detailed. I think my record is six months in a dream, though - but I had several timeskips. It never felt as though I spent more than a couple of days in one place.
