      I had my first lucid by accident, but from the moment I began actively trying to lucid dream it took me about three weeks.

      Took me 2 days after discovering LDing through DV. I was so excited about it I was reality checking so much and constantly thinking about lucid dreaming. Boom, second night I RC in a dream.

      After I learned Lucid Dreaming was scientific fact and not New Agey BS, it took me a month to have 1, where I lost lucidity after like 1 min. Which was like 3 years ago.

      I generally have around 2-4 LDs a month, now, mostly just from reality checks. Though, no matter how hard I try, it seems my dream recall only seems good enough during 1.5-3 hour naps. No matter when I wake up after the long sleep. If I sleep longer, I don't recall much of the dreams and never remember LDs. I can only typically recall 1 dream, in that case. Frustrating. Such a transcedental and profound part of life, and I can barely tap into it.

      My first lucid dream after I learned about lucid dream was very vivid, lasted quite long, and when it collapsed I was able to chain and continue the dream lucidly. Other than reading books about lucid dreaming and casually doing reality checks when I felt it necessary I didn't do much else other than improve my dream recall via keeping a dream journal and meditate whenever I got the chance. I took a casual approach which I do to this day. My significant other and I always had trouble sleeping, I didn't want this to become an added burden. Unlike me my significant other had been a natural lucid dreamer since childhood and had incredible dream recall even without keeping a dream journal. She could have lucid dreams any day just by intention alone. Anyway, to answer how long... I think probably between 1 to 3 months. I hardly slept and was too busy everyday working to pay bills on top of studies. Not a healthy way to live nor an ideal lifestyle for lucids. I didn't burden myself with methods and techniques, I just kept an open mind.

      It took a few weeks from my memory. I found out about it here on dream views and immediately started improving my dream recall and doing reality checks. I'm fairly sure that my eventual success was caused by my excitement and determination, like others have stated. It was a pretty uneventful dream, but the fact that I had had a lucid dream was so exciting!

      Most people's "first" lucid dream tend to be short and uneventful, but mine wasn't and I'm sure I'm not alone. The more I think about it more I'm sure it's because of a casual mindset that lets us experience a longer and more eventful lucid dream. Wanting something but not wanting too much to the point of getting worked up sort of thing. ^^

      I'm not sure..but if the average person has five or more dreams every night and usually only remember one (unless someone's purposefully keeping track of dreams,journal,ect) wouldn't it be logical to assume we don't remember 100% of our lucid dreams?
