      2 and a half months isn't really that long. My advice would be to stop worrying about the specific methods involved in LDin, just chill out and know that you will have one sometime. Go to sleep normally, be aware that you're falling asleep, try to think that you'll notice you're dreaming. No biggie if you don't, theres plenty of nights ahead of you. You can even WILD this way, just go to sleep - and on the off chance you notice a lot of vivid HI before unconciousness... go with it!

      Most important thing I did with my LDing was just to stop incessantly focusing on it. It'll come in time!

      And in the meantime, have fun with normal dreams. Nothin wrong with them.

      Maybe you aren't doing the techniques correctly...how do you do the WILD? Have you tried the WBTB method? Try drinking some caffeine (like a few cups of coffee or 2 mt. dews or something) and taking a nap midday. I can't really help you though if I don't know what you are doing wrong, or aren't doing right with any particular method.

      There could be a ton of factors in this. Your dream recall, Your sleeping pattern and as lucidnina pointed out, if you are properly doing the techniques.
      Also spoon's adice is a good idea.
      Trying too hard seems to be the most common factor amonst beginners.

      That quote just reminded me of some dreams. I often times take a 1 hour nap in my car for my lunch break at work and I have noticed that I will be dreaming about sitting in my car and driving somewhere or even just sitting there and the car will be driving itself all weird. However I conducted a little experiment to see if I could reproduce the results, only this time I set my alarm for 1 hour and took a nap in my bed after the sun had gone down. I couldn't remember a single dream. I'm not sure if its the sun, the time of day, or the fact that I was sleeping in a less comfortable position in my car but somehow its easier for me to notice those dreams when napping. I hope this can help you. Also could someone let me know what I am referring to since I haven't gotten around to reading all the tutorials.

      yeh thanx 4 ur relpies. firstly my recall is 1-2 dreams a night, which i think is great, secondly, i would prefer not to take drugs, but the caffiene + nap idea sounds good.

      about WILD, whe I try it I sometimes get close but all that realli happens is a coupke of tiny, uncontrolable movements, and then eventually i lose it. MILD, never even close, as for WBTB I could try it tonight, ill wake at 4 in the morning read about lucid dreaming then wild myself to sleep.

      Give it time, give it time. I was getting very frustrated like you are now, but just give it time. I was thinking about giving up but I decided to try just a little bit longer now I have a lucid dream 1-3 times a week.

      Wouln't caffiene hinder your ability to take a napp?
      I understand the concept. But I guess coming from someone who could not take a napp if it was during the day, even if I took a sedative.
      Too high strung I guess.
