    I haven't had a nightmare in months. And as years go by I have less and less too.

    It's most likely that people who say they don't dream just don't remember their dreams.
    I don't remember most of my dreams either.
    Every now and then, I have one that's significant.
    If I wake up right after, I will remember it.
    If thoughts of it continue to "haunt" me, I will look up the meaning of it
    to see what I'm supposed to learn from it.

    Usually my dreams are just a reflection of how I am feeling at that time in my life.
    Sometimes they can be prophetic, but rarely.

    Here's my favorite dream interpretation book.
    It's my favorite because of its accuracy.

    The easiest way to dream is to drastically oversleep. 14 hours minimum. I once slept for a whole weekend (with maybe 2 hours break for food and toilet) and I had some insane dreams. The "snooze" button is also great for dreaming. Sleep for 10 or 12 hours and then start snoozing and you'll have a variety of dreams. Some of them are bound to be bad, though they may not be nightmares.

    I know that. It is just that I don't remember anything so I don't have any personal proof that I have dreams.

    Please be honest with me. How do you do something like that?
    I can't sleep longer then 7 hours no matter what.

    Seven hours is a good amount of time.
    Why do you want to sleep more than that?
    I've heard of people who only need 4 hours a night!
    I need 9!

    Not really.

    Part of it's a joke, but I do fall asleep at strange times, in strange places, particularly when I don't get enough sleep. For some reason the time of day I sleep is more important than how much I sleep. I am much more tired if I go to bed early and wake up early than if I go to bed late and wake up late, even if technically I got the same amount of sleep both times. The only problem is that my prime sleeping hours are hours where people should be awake (at least, according to society, but what the hell do they know?), so yes, I am always tired.

    I once heard that one hour of sleep before midnight is equal to two hours of sleep after midnight,
    but you could be someone for whom that does not hold true.
    It does for me, though.
