About 10 years ago, I started having lucid dreams, at first they were DILD s, in the beginning initiated from a very scary situation until I said, hey, this cant be real, I must be dreaming, then, I fought the monsters with ease and very much enjoyed it, after some time of LDing, every night I wanted to had a LD I just decided to have one before I went to bed and I did, at this point, I would begin the dream lucid, as if I was transitioning from this place to the dream world as I fell asleep. It went on for many years until maybe 2-3 years when I was about 17, then I started destroying my consciousness by use of various substances. I completely forgot about lucid dreaming for a total of about 2-3 years until some 2-3 months ago, I saw a show on a guy who has precognitive lucid dreams, then I got back to it, I started meditating daily, at first I did not really remember how I induced LDs but after a week or so I got my first one after a long time, it was really nice and cheerful, lasted about 5-10 minutes, I had very limited control as I was barely able to fly and in general to control the surroundings.
I got into a habit and starting having them more and more often, after 2-3 weeks I was back at full power and having at least one LD per night, until about a month ago I wasnt aware of the many communities of lucid dreamers. I love LD4all!
