I used to remember my dreams without any difficulty or the need to remind myself to do so. A few weeks ago I stopped remembering them completely. Over a week ago I started using methods suggested on this site to try to remember my dreams. The first night went OK. I could remember 3 dreams in varying levels of detail. Since that night my recall has gotten rapidly worse. By the second night i could still remember 3 dreams but in no detail (about one sentence in my dream journal). For the last 5 nights it has only been one dream and one sentence.
I’ve tried using reminders, the water trick, repeating to myself that I will remember my dreams/have interesting dreams, and I’ve convinced myself that I will. Nothing seems to be helping. I’ve not been drinking coffee or getting drunk every night (I heard that they could hinder dream recall). Has anyone got any suggestions?
