How long did it take you?

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.

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.

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.

i cannot understand how i could feel…
like if i was in a ND and suddenly realised i was in ND i would convert to LD state?how does it feel?how can you specify “Vivid” ?

You don’t have to be lucid to experience ‘vividity’ :wink: A vivid dream is simply a dream that’s so clear and detailed.

and if you can act like in RL + the crazy stuff in your mind you are on LD ?

thanks for info :woo:

I don’t really know. :o

I believe that mine was after about a month of trying, but I can’t really remember.

I’ve had mine one day ago, which was about 2 months of trying.
But it’s so worth it :smile:

It took me a year and a half to have my first “true” LD (and by true, I mean that I’m 100% sure I was lucid at some point.) But… I stopped trying June 2007 and only started trying again last May. Just got lazy, I guess. :tongue:

moved into existing topic (which also has a poll)

From the moment you heard about it, to when you had your first LD, how long was this period?

To natural LD’rs, gtfo, you make me jealous D:.

I’ve like gone through 2 weeks since I really looked into it, and I’m unsure if I had a LD (It might have been a FLD). D:

My first LD after learning what it was was 3 months after I heard about it.

When I was little, some kids show I watched (can’t remember which one) said that if you can realize you’re dreaming, you can do anything you want. Sometime after that I had my first LD (without knowing the term) and have had them sporadically since.

They really oughta try out the concept on more little kids; it might make them lucid dreamers for life.

Still trying, I found out 3 weeks ago… :sad:

First attempt, I had 2 lucid dreams =D

They lasted seconds each, but they were there!!

I’ve only had one other, and it was a few days afterwards. That was about a week ago. I’ve been kind of half-way trying, but I’m gonna try harder then I have been =3

odd my posts dont seem to be working, maybe a hint to go to bed.

two to three weeks to have my first real ld. i had a few before that but they only lasted a few seconds. Took me a few months / years to learn how to ld every night and only 3 months to forget it all! busy life, tend to lose track of what is important.

glad im not the only one :smile:
