      I lucid dreamed for 4 months with MILD but its been a month and now I can't. I'm on med's that knock me out for about 11 hours. Should I try another method

      When did you start taking this medication? I assume it's something recent? It's possible that it's the reason for your inability to lucid dream. Don't quote me on this because I'm not entirely sure, but I believe a lot of sleeping pills can mess with REM sleep because it forces you into a deeper state of sleep than you would naturally be in.

      Has your recall suffered? If the answer is yes, then I would blame the meds. If the answer is no, then perhaps you should look into trying something new.

      Okay, well that rules out that possibility then. My suggestion would be to try new things - dry spells come to us all; it's inevitable.

      WBTB and WILD could provide more instantaneous results. How much do you know about both methods? The key is to fall asleep with an anchor, if that means anything to you.

      Let me know what you think. In any case, make sure your dream journal is consistent and as detailed as you can make it. Look for cues that are specific for you. You never know, you may recognise something from a past dream and produce a lucid dream from it.

      Enz, how frequently were you successfully having LDs using the MILD technique before your recent dry spell?

      Maybe you could try working on a new induction method as GravesTC mentioned. I've read that the SSILD technique has quite good success rates.

      Click HERE for a SSILD tutorial within the forums. Within that link is another link on the post to the updated version of the tutorial.


      I have read that the efficacy of some induction methods can sometimes wear off over time leading to fewer lucids, but I would think that depends on the individual and how they are approaching their situation. I also read that a diminishing frequency of LDs does not occur with SSILD, but I do not know the veracity of that.

      And just to clarify, when you wrote "also I can recall dreams ok," do you mean that you are still able to recall non-LDs?

      If anyone feels that anything needs to be added or corrected within my reply, please do so!
