    I've heard of people who only need 4 hours a night!
    I need 9!
    I've just asked "How is it possibe to sleep that much'" because I know plenty of people who can sleep like that. There is no way that my goal is to sleep that much. Sleeping is a waste of time.

    I ask exactly because I can't sleep longer then 7 hours and 4 hours can be enough for me. Yes, we do exist.
    This night I have sleept only for five and half hours and I feel just fine.

    As I've said it before, 7 hours is just upper border, not standard .

    Form what I have experienced people treat this like supernatural power.
    Why they do that, I don't know.
    I also don't know how it is possible but it works for me.
    Form what I have experienced the more you sleep the more tired you will be.
    But if I have to guess why am I like this I would say that the way of life and how I use my brainy are the reasons why this works for me.

    Do you microsleep? (Throughout the day, do you have one or two times where you suddenly get an overwhelming urge to close your eyes- if you are persistant, it could go away in 3-10 minutes.)

    There was about a year-long time in my life when I slept probably about 5 hours a night, but fell into microsleep quite often (the brain falls asleep for 3-14 secs, "spacing out", so to speak).

    I have to disappoint you. The answer is no.

    I don't remember my dreams, so I don't remember if I actually have many nightmares either.

    I did have one [a nightmare] a few weeks ago, but for the life of me now I can't remember what it was. If I recall it, I'll post it.

    My sleep habits still stink. I often only get 4-6 hours a night. I've tried to sleep more and more often I will now squeeze out 5-7, maybe even eight hours (usually on weekends) but it doesn't seem to do much. I have had increasing periods where I zone or get the "microsleep" thing where I just can't stay awake. I've been on the couch before and been in a semi-snooze for about 30-45 minutes before I come out of it. That used to be rare for me. Now I want to sleep more.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Yeah, it isn't easy. The 11 hour mark is a particularly tough one to get past. That's usually where the quitters will get up and have a coffee, or maybe surf the news headlines. The truly committed, however, roll over and nod the fuck off. After ~13-14 hours of sleep you stop feeling rested and start feeling tired again, so it becomes easier. And the dreams become extremely lucid.

    Sorry, there is no way that I can do something like that.

    It does for me, though.
    I must be the opposite. I cannot sleep at 'normal times.' Either my sleep must come after 2 and end at 9 or 10, or I fall asleep at 7 PM and wake up at 3 AM (this generally does not happen unless I'm sick, though.) If I fall asleep at 'normal' hours I will need at least nine or ten hours to be rested...

    This happens to me all the time. I even get hypnic twitches and dreams when it does.

    A lot of time has passed, so I am interested in changes if someone had any.

    I have recurring nightmares (or just disturbing/annoying dreams) about being back in the military, back in military school, or back in the gulf war. I have them about once a week or more. Prior to the war, I had dreams about being back in military school. That place seems to have had a profound effect on my psyche.

    I often have a nightmare of having killed someone and am being chased down by the police. I'm the anti hero in my dreams. The persecuted one chased down for a crime of self defense.
